Claude Miller, Algonac, MI: “I drilled through 10 inches of ice in half the time it would have taken by hand.”
Gomer Withrow, Ottawa, OH: “The adapter was easy to use and worked great with my 18-volt drill. It saved a lot of time and effort.”
Rick: “Used the IceMaster today. Wow!! Worked better than I hoped it would! With my 18v DeWalt, I was able to make 6″ holes through 10″ of ice in about 10 seconds! Faster than a gas powered auger, by far. It’s a great product, Dave, and I will recommend it to everyone who’s interested.”
Tom Dousman, WI: “This Ice Master Adapter for my Lazer Strikemaster ice auger is the way to go. My previous set-up from Yo-Auger was no comparison. On the first use I drilled 20+ holes in 12″’s of ice. In addition, this unit is guaranteed for life! Way to go Ice Master, what a quality product.”
Eric Janesville, WI: “Hey you guys make the best adapter on the market bar none! I had 2 different makes and they have not held up! My ice-master has drilled about 5,000 holes in the last year or so. Congrats on a quality product for a reasonable price. I only wish the local bait shop who sold them was still in business. I guess all my buddies i will direct on line to order one as they are all envious of mine. Once again thanks for a great product.”
Pat Sobota, Edwardsburg, MI: “Thank you for a great product! I was kind of skeptical at the thought of using a power drill to drill ice holes. Didn’t want to purchase a new drill so I bought the high capacity lithium-ion battery for my Sears 19.2v. I was so impressed with the performance of the adaptor and the drill that I purchased another lithium-ion battery. I have a Strikemaster Lazer 5 inch attached, I don’t even carry my gas auger anymore, as I can drill 60-80 holes on two batteries depending on ice thickness. i just fish for panfish, so this is the perfect setup. My fishing buddies have attached themselves to MY drill when I go with them! I told them to get their own. Lots of other guys using drills with the ugly plastic plates have asked me how I prevent my auger from going down the hole should it become detached, when I show them how it works, they regret buying what they did and wish they knew about your product.”
George Coram, Livonia, MI: “Just wanted to send your company results from my evaluation of my first time using a cordless drill and IceMaster conversion kit to cut ice holes. Santa bought me the conversion kit 2yrs ago the drill was not the one I had my eye on but it was a gift this past Christmas so I gave it a try and wow was I amazed how well it worked. When I met the representative of IceMaster at Cabelas 2 yrs ago he said do not push or force the auger to cut. It was a little awkward initially because at first I just wanted to push down but once I realized how quickly the blades bit is really was a riot watching this thing drill.”

“The auger cut the ice like a hot knife in butter. Both my son, good friend, and myself were in total awe how well this setup worked. We attributed our fish harvest success to the fact I was able to cut so many holes without effort, allowing me to make the last move in an area I would not have normally fished. It actually was flat out fun cutting holes and it never crossed our minds to settle for a area with little sign on our fish finders because we were tired of drilling.
“Thanks Ice Master for a super product!”
