Welcome to the new generation of high-compression, propane-powered ice augers. Eskimo the innovators of the first ice auger engine designed specifically to harness the full potential of propane, they had a great platform to build from. They paired a high-compression engine with a new high-speed, all-metal transmission to achieve faster revolutions. The new Rocket Auger features a cast bottom resulting in smoother cutting and breakthrough. At only 26 lbs, the P1 is the lightest 8” propane power auger on the market.
