From the BPS Flyer thread thought I'd post this for those not wanting to line up at 5am on boxing day.

SubZero 33CC 8" power auger regular $299. Many stores around Mississauga have it in stock now.

Funny you post that I was looking at the same one this evening at CTC I also wondered if they are good machines.

There was a 10 inch 3hp jiffy also for $299.So tempting.

I wanted to lift it up to see how heavy it was but they had it tie wrapped to the shelf :wallbash:

When I do buy one it will be a model lighter than the Jiffy.

Looks like a nice unit.

Does anyone have any idea how many hp that would be?

Likely only 2 hp I'm guessin

All I can ever remember using up in Temagami was that 2HP Jiffy and we regularly were cutting 3+ft of ice and many holes per day. I just remember it being a bit heavy to lug around.

I figure if I can do 12-24 with this lighter one it should do most of where I fish. All I need is someone to pul it in their sleigh.

I have the jiffy auger. I beleive mine is 85cc and about 37-38 lbs. They do get heavy to carry sometimes. For most people a 2 hp one is good enough. That looks like a decent auger @ a decent price. Buy it, if its no good return it.

That is an eskimo auger, made by ardisam, relabled for CT. I had one of the originals, and it was a junk to keep running, and I returned it. They have had several years to get the design right, and most eskimo products are quality, so I imagine they've probably sorted out the bugs. I'd try it again fwiw.
