"N/P.  I just went and looked at them today.  The one to get is the only hammer drill offered, it's $159.99 with a 4ah battery and charger."

"Thanks Allen. I'd like to drill more holes than I do with a hand auger, but still don't think I would be drilling that many. I may look at the Ryobi."

Cordless drill/ice auger

     I have been using a 7 inch Eskiimo hand auger for years. I have been thinking about going to a drill/ice auger combo. Probably a 5 or 6 inch auger to be able to drill more holes. I was wondering what others are using that they like?See More
