Do they have enough toque @ 500 inch pounds, to run a 6" K-Drill or 5" lazer bit ?

To get into the cordless drill/ice auget it is reckmmended 700 in/lbs or better...if you have the drill already with good batteries just get a bare tool ..2803/2804.

my old ni-cad 24volt 500 inch pound ridgid turns a 6 inch lazer ok. wet heavy ice puts a strain on it so you lift some so it takes less ice per revolution. listen to the motor to know how it's doing. keep the blades sharp. i'd pass on the k-drill because of the blade style is harder on the drill. your right at the point where we try to be for the minimum specs being 100 inch pounds per inch of auger with a 4 amp or larger battery. some tools need much higher battery amperage such as ridgid octane wants their 9amp battery not a 4amp.

Get the 2704 or 2804. Both 1200lbs of torque , you won't be sorry.

You should be ok with the 5in lazer.....you'd be pushing it with the 6in mora or lazer auger....the kdrill would more then likely be to much.......since it is brushless it should shut down before you would injure the drill.....like someone mentioned you've got the batteries and charger, look at getting a bare 1200in lb drill.

General rule is 100# of torque per inch of auger.

I just got my new 2804-20 from walmart, $99.00 + tax, free shipping.  Noticeably smaller than the 2704 I am using for work.  It is just a hair larger and darn close in weight to my 12 volt model.  I would jump on the 2804 model.

Thanks for the replies.  I have an older M-18 hammer drill.  Think I will keep the money in my pocket and carry on.
