Many ice anglers are switching to 4-cycle propane powered augers because they are clean burning and low maintenance. However, they are also known to be heavy and hard to handle, or lightweight and lack power. The EskimoŽ HC40™ propane auger was designed from the ground up, creating an auger that is both lightweight and powerful. Instead of just adapting a gasoline engine to run on propane, the engineers at Eskimo designed the engine on the HC40 to take full advantage of the higher octane rating of propane fuel. The higher compression ratio creates more power out of a smaller package, which means the angler has a lighter weight auger with the power to quickly cut an eight inch hole. The powerful high compression engine will perform for years when paired with the all-metal, sealed, ball bearing transmission and fast cutting 2 blade Quantum™ augers. At only 30 lbs, the HC40 8? propane auger gives ice anglers the reliability and dependability they have come to expect from Eskimo in an extremely powerful, lightweight package.
This clean-burning high compression engine is optimized to take full advantage of high octane propane fuel, packing more power into a lighter package, and giving you enough power to turn either an 8? or 10? auger with minimal weight added to the unit.
The HC40 runs on readily available 1lb. propane cylinders, and a quick-release bottle holder allows you to easily disconnect and replace your fuel supply
No need to worry about gummed up carburetors.
No more need to prime the engine before startup, just flip the switch to ON to begin drilling
The Quantum auger is ideal for re-drilling holes with its unique centering ring, and Quantum blades last longer than competitor blades and hold their edge in dirty ice
Eskimo is the only ice auger line using sealed ball bearings instead of bushings
