You can change to the newer style blades.  I use an old jiffy and upgraded from the original chipper style to the newer jiffy stealth blades, they have the same bolt pattern.  The only thing is you won't have the 2 extra small blades on the chisel point like the newer augers, unless you drill some holes and attach them, but just by upgraded to the stealth blade makes a huge difference in performance.

are you talking about just the blades or are you talking about the screw too?


I don't think your auger would work right if you put 10" blades on an 8" auger. As far as the model 30 is concerned, you can get a new screw and bolt it right onto your power head.

i have size 13 feet and even these biggins fell into a hole this past season
then i vowed to switch to the 8" maybe to save my fishing days..
there doesn't seem to be a large need for 10 inch screws
plus an 8" would drill faster and better


Anyone want to trade my 10 for there 8

I guess I misunderstood your initial question.  But to do what you want to, you have to change screws.  They are not cheap either. A friend of mine paid almost $200 for a new screw for his model 30!

Try Kittery Trading Post. I bought a 8" screw for my Jiffy a few years back.
I think my auger is a model 31
