Pound for pound, StrikeMaster’s® new Lite-Flite Lazer™ Drill Unit ice auger is the undisputed champion of cutting speed and efficiency, knocking out all rivals.
“After a hard winter of testing it, I can say without hesitation the Lite Flite is, hands down, the fastest-cutting, most-efficient and lightest-weight ice auger I’ve ever used – bar none,” says James Holst, host of the influential “In-Depth Outdoors” TV show on the Fox Sports North channel.
Indeed, in head-to-head speed-drilling match-ups, the Lite-Flite Drill Unit beat two other drill-powered augers three out of three times. An identical cordless electric drill was used to power each auger.
The ultimate advancement for run-and-gun ice trolling, the new Lite-Flite Drill Unit can be powered by any professional-quality, 18-volt (or higher) brushless, handheld, cordless electric ½-inch chuck drill or StrikeMaster ice auger powerhead. Its twin serrated stainless steel Lazer blades ensure a smooth, clean cut every time.
What makes the new Lite-Flite Drill Unit truly innovative and unique is full-length, synthetic resin-molded segmented flighting and a blade-attachment carriage formed from exclusively engineered compounds.
“The synthetic flighting cuts weight by 40 percent and the new molded blade attachment guarantees a perfect cutting angle that will never go out of adjustment,” Holst says.
The 6-inch Lite-Flite Drill Unit weighs 4.4 pounds – 1.6 and 2.6 pounds less than StrikeMaster’s two other 6-inch auger drills. The 8-inch Lite-Flite Drill Unit weighs 5.3 pounds – 2.7 and 3.3 pounds less than StrikeMaster’s other 8-inch auger drills.
Additional features of StrikeMaster’s new Lite Flite Drill Unit include:
- Heavy-duty, steel hex shaft and a reinforced “T” carriage connection, for strength.
- Power Point to keep the drill unit in place while drilling
- NDA-3 Drill Adapter and Safety Flange
