World Leader in Ice Drilling and Coring Equipment Since 1974

Ice Augers

All our augers are 5 centimeters (2 inches) in diameter and come in ½ and 1 meter lengths. These augers can be joined end to end via a patented push-button connector which allows for quick connection of one auger section to another. This method of assembly means there are no pins lose and no bolts to snag on your clothing. The Kovacs ice auger and bit have drilled a 24 meter (78.5 feet) hole through a multiyear pressure ridge as well as a 23 meter (75.5 feet) hole through a grounded ice island (tabular iceberg) using a ½ inch electric drill. 1/2 meter: MDS-210-002, $189 USD 1 meter: MDS-210-001, $199 USD
