Product Features

  • ONLY THE SOUND OF CUTTING ICE: The ION is so quiet, you will only hear the sound of shredding iceor the sound of a gas auger in the distance. This means you'll no longer have to worry about fish spooking from the loud roar of a gas engine.
  • 3 AMP HOUR, GEN 1 BATTERY: A high-performance, 3 Amp Hour, 40V MAX Lithium Ion battery powers the 8" ION through up to 1000" of ice on a single charge.
  • NO GAS, NO OIL, NO FUMES: With ION, all you need to do is charge your battery, go to the lake, and start drilling. No need to stop at a gas station, calculate fuel mixture, or store unused mixed gas. No more spilled gas or fumes in your vehicle.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY TO CARRY: At only 22 pounds, ION weighs nearly 40% less than typical gas-powered augers. This means less effort drilling and more opportunity to focus on fishing.
  • SMOOTH CUTS EVERY TIME: The ION virtually eliminates "catching" at breakthrough, leaving no jagged ice at the bottom of the hole that can fray line and cost you fish.
