But if you are jigging and looking for fish it would not be close. My guess is if we were drilling side by side is I would be done with 10 and you might be over 5.
Maybe...Maybe not. I Did 10 holes in a foot and a half of ice on Saturday in about 15 minutes with it.

Not knocking power augers, kinds playing devil's advocate here....but once I got this I basically haven't touched my power auger other than using it with the scouts on a campout.

Big difference in price....maybe use the savings to pick up a flasher
Jiffy Auger - $500
Nils - $125

Big difference in weight too....especially if you are planning on running and gunning...

Jiffy Auger - 28 Lbs.
Nils - 4 lbs

There's pluses for both.....
