Right out of the box and it will not start. I followed instructions exactly. New oil and new propane. 35 degree day and instead of fishing, this ASE certified mechanic with 40 years of experience can not get this $450.00 ice auger running. I should have bought a Jiffy Pro4.

Excellent Auger

I bought the Eskimo HC40 this season and absolutely love it, One or two pull starts, fast cut and no more mixing. It had a dent in the auger bit from shipping and I called Eskimo on a Friday and had a new bottom by Monday! Great service. The motor was actually designed for propane instead of being adapted for it. Metal gears in the transmission. The 8" weighs 30lbs compared to 28 for the Jiffy LITE 8".
