Has anyone used an 18v impact driver with the auger attachment?  Better/worse than a cordless drill?
Thanks

I guess it would work as long as you keep it in drill mode and not hammer mode . That might make it hard on blades .  Wink

The hammers usually have more torque/power, but also are less compact and probably run through a charge quicker than a drill.


I think any quality 1/2" drill from a reputable brand (dewalt, hitachi, etc) is more than enough, provided it is Li-ion and at least 18v.


Also depends on the auger you have, not all them are created equal, just like the drills Tongue

There seems to be confusion between a Hammer drill and an Impact driver.  For clarification: http://home.howstuffworks.com/difference-between-hammer-drill-and-impact-driver.htmr

Just wondering if an impact driver would exert too much torque for the auger/blade assembly (~1500 in.lb)  Has anyone used an impact driver to auger ice with success?

8" is pretty pointless but a 5-6" with fresh blades works good. KEEP THE BATTERY WARM !!!!
