Strikemaster 10" Lazor Lite Auger Bit
« on: Feb 11, 2024, 04:51 PM »
I'm already running a strikemaster lite flite 8"auger bit with clam plate Gen 2 without the power drive gear box and a Dewalt DCD 999B 1/2" hammer drill.  Dewalt drill is most powerful contractor drill they make which is rated at 991 inch pounds of torque (112nb). This set up is on year three and cuts quick and fast through ice like hot knife through butter.
Take very good care of blades, removing blade cover, thoroughly drying the blades and applying light gun oil to blades after each and every trip at end of day.  About ready to buy the strikemaster 10" lazor lite drill auger bit only to switch out and run on the same drill/clam plate set up without the clam gear box accessory.  Anybody running the 10" bit on same set up and if so what is your experience with same set up?

Most guys recommend 100 inch lbs of torque for the drill for every inch of auger. Iíd say youíre fine with your drill now for a 10Ē bit.

Picked up the strikemaster 10" Lazor Lite bit on Sunday, easy switch from 8" lite flite to the 10".  The flites on the 10" have noticeably thicker composite material with reinforcing ribs molded into the flites on the underside.  Took it for a test drive on Monday and drlled 6 holes on local lake through 10" of ice.  Happy to say clamplate without gearbox and dewalt dcd999b ripped through that ice just as fast as with the 8" lite flite.  Clamplate and drill worked fantastic with no struggle at all.  I was using heavier dewalt  60v/flex volt 6AH battery as it wakes up the higher performance and torque on the Dewalt flex advantage drill.  Will let you know how this set up performs during our Moosehead trip next month in colder conditions and drilling 20 plus holes a day.

Did you need an adapter to put it on the clam plate?  I was eyeing that up for sturgeon but was under the impression the mounting collar was larger diameter than a hand auger.
I'm a man, but I can change, If I have to, I guess.

Yes you will need the strikemaster adaptor for clam plate but I already had one for the 8" lite flite bit and it's the same one for the 10" lazor lite bit.

Awesome, thanks for the info.  Really surprised the drill gets it done without a gearbox, maybe this will be my big purchase for next season, if we have a winter anyways.

The right drill will get the job done ..I am a Milwaukee fan boy 2904/2903 1400 in/lbs is quite a lot of torque. Keep an eye on the best deals thread

I already have a Dewalt  grinder that came with 2 flexvolt 20/60V batteries. So, I ordered the DEWALT FLEXVOLT ADVANTAGE 20V MAX* Hammer Drill. Hopefully, it's the right rig as I already have a bunch of battery Dewalt stuff. Using with 8" Mora bit. I bought the plate and attachments a couple days ago.

I bought the gear box, tried it and immediately took it off. I was using an old 8" Mora with it so maybe I'll try it  again with my new lite flite 8".

The 900 series is what you should be looking for:

Dewalt DCD991

Dewalt DCD996

Dewalt DCD997

Dewalt DCD998 must use 6ah or better Flexvolt battery to achieve the higher advertised torque

Dewalt DCD999 must use 6ah or better Flexvolt battery to achieve the higher advertised torque

The gear box shines on under powered/torqued cordless drills..or larger drill bit units 10 inch.

I've looked everywhere online trying to find the Clam power drive gear box only to add to my clam plate (Gen 2).  Gearbox only is sold out everywhere and on backorder at Clam Outdoors.  I know it definitely slows down your drill to help protect it and supposedly makes drilling through ice smoother and eliminates the abrupt stop.  But I don't think I need it with my Dewalt DCD999b drill using flex volt 20v/60v 6AH batteries.  May pick one up in the off season if I find a really good deal.

I have a Fuel 9Ah, Octane 9Ah, Ryobi One+, and a 3hp gasser.  I think I'm good good on power heads for the rest of my life ;D.  But thanks.
