    I bought a Eskimo Mako 10" earlier this winter when AIH had them on sale. After I got the clutch broke in and well seated it has been a great machine. Always fires on the first couple pulls and while not a powerhouse with the larger auger attached it is more than sufficient for me, takes about 30-45 seconds per foot of ice when it's good and sharp. The 10" holes are nice to fish out of too, more visibility and less worry of line abrasion since you have more room to fish. Fuel economy, if it matters, seems stellar I generally cut 10-15 holes per trip and have only filled it up once in the last 5 trips no need to carry a can with me. BTW I think on sale I payed a shade under $300 back around New Years.

    Hands down the best auger I've ever used. Jiffy Pro propane.
