What does everyone think of the new jiffy propane ice augers?  I guess i would question how it would perform in very cold temperature Kinda like the heater when it gets super cold.   THOUGHTS??

 I will remain skeptical until I run one in -20degrees though at least 3' of ice.  For now, I'll stick with my strike-lite 224 combo.

I was checking out the 10" the other day and all I can say is that it is very heavy.  Might be great for the permanent house, but no for going portable.

I have a Leyr propane weed wacker the company was made by a military officer it took him 10yrs to prefect it and I will tell you this that what a job where I live in the past 3 or so years they introduced ethenol and when the gas sits it seperates and is no good even with the ethenol stabil it is no good after time I don't have to worry about mixing or the gas going bad and you can buy the kit from cabelas to fill them up from a 20lb tank I was wondering when they was going to make them for ice augers I asked my buddie the other day about it and found it today would like to get one when the price goes down.  my jiffy 30 is 30+yrs old and never changed a blade or plug in it love it but with a suv i have to empty the gas out or it will leak in my suv propane is a cold gas anyway so i think it would be fine it is cold due to the pressure of making it from a gas to liquid

I suppose propane augers work less and less until that -44 degree day where propane would stay liquid in a bucket. Then the vapor pressure is zero and wont come out of a tank without being pumped.

All "gases are cold". That's the latent heat of vaporization. Propane has a relatively high boiling point (-44 @ sea level), that is why we are familiar with it being cold.

Just saying.
