K-Drill Ice Auger Systems
K-Drill uses a unique three-blade high carbon steel chipper design which chews through both fresh ice and old frozen holes. The K-Drill is the Lightest and Easiest Ice Auger System Ever Developed and the ONLY Auger System Specifically Designed for Cordless Electric Drills!
The sturdy aluminum constructed Auger Shaft with thermal wrap helps keep hands warm. Extensions are available too. K-Drill requires a 1/2” drill. The auger is adaptable for attachment to certain gas auger heads.
There is a quick and easy Safety Cover for the three-blade system to prevent both serious injury and keep your blades sharp. The Foam Float ensures the ice auger does not sink if it falls out of the drill chuck.
K-Drill Comes in 6”, 7.5”, and 8.5” models and uses a durable modular plastic fighting designed to clear ice shards quickly and keep them near the hole.

K-Drill Safety Tips
- Do not remove the blade cover until you are ready to drill - Blades are sharp! Keep the safety cover on the cutting head at all times unless you are actually drilling holes.
- Do not leave drill unattended in partially drilled hole
- Train inexperienced operators to regularly clear hole during drilling
- Keep all loose clothing away from auger
- During the operation of cutting the ice, the auger could possibly stop if it comes in contact with a foreign object or if it binds in the hole. In conditions of thick ice, be sure to pull the auger out of the ice several times to assure excess ice shavings do not buildup in the hole this will bind the drill and make it hard to lift out once hole is complete. Beyond 24" of ice it is best to clear the hole of ice shavings every 5 seconds.
- After cutting the ice fishing holes, the auger should ALWAYS be set in a safe place to prevent personal injury or damage to the auger shaft or blade(s).
- Keep your electric drill assembly out of water and remember a warm fully charged battery will assure your drill will be operating at its maxim performance and will deliver the maximum # of holes per charge.
At the end of the ice fishing season before storing for summer, please spray WD-40 on the blades to prevent rusting during the off season.
