Well I've got an Eskimo that I bought a couple of years ago. Actually it's a post hole digger but last Fall I ordered an ice bit for it. Figured I might as well use it for icefishing during the Winter when I'm not building decks. Mine is a 2 hp and I got the 8" bit for it. It works great ! I'm very happy with mine. It's got plenty of power and it isn't too heavy.-

I couldn't find one locally either. The part # is QT8N. I got it through The Country Store on the net. Their price was pretty fair and shipped fast. I think they're in Minnestota or Wisconsin. I'll track down the addy for you and post it.

Here's a link to The County Store's web site. (actually the page with the replacement augers)

Good luck.

WOW, Ken $109 ?! They're only $79 through Country Store !

That site isn't laid out very well. There should be a link to the home page or a "contact us" link but there isn't. Here's a link with the address and phone numbers to contact them.

No problem Gary, glad to help out. I'm fairly certain that shipping is only about $7 or $8. And even with that, you'll still be $10 cheaper than Eskimo beacause they are going to charge you shipping also.

Good luck and get ready to hit the ice !
