K-Drill?
« on: Feb 13, 2018, 10:35 AM »
I LOVE my orange Nils, but Im considering adding a 6 K-drill to the arsenal. Im looking to save weight/space in the sled when Im moving around a lot. Considered getting a Nils Arctic Trekker and using just the 14 section it in early ice mode, but Im afraid bending over would get painful. I noticed that they claim that the K-drill leaves little slush in the hole. That would make the decision easy for me. So, does the K-Drill leave a hole that is fishable without scooping?

just put your drill in reverse and flush all the shavings back down the hole.

Yep. After I drill the hole with my k-drill, I kick away the pike of ice shavings and then run the drill in reverse for a few seconds. Clear hole with no scooping.
You can't buy happiness, but you can buy fishing gear....and that's kind of the same thing.

I use my 8 in Kdrill like I did my gas auger..after break through push through ...forcing the ice down...any eventually away from the hole then I extract the auger using some throttle  to clear the hole out..also you should be cleaning the augered ice periodically as your drill by lifting the Kdrill up every 5 seconds or so. With this seasons abundance of black ice and very little snow cover I was keeping some shavings in the hole as well as leaving a cone ...my theory was to disperse some of the sunlight. The height of the Kdrill with adapter and the Clam Plate is very much the height of a gas auger .
