The 8” ION R1 utilizes a powerful 5Ah Gen 1 battery, paired with a specially designed motor to deliver optimal power and performance. In fact, ION R1 adds up to 35% more power and significant speed upgrades over previous Gen 1 ION Augers, making it one of the most powerful electric augers on the market today. The R1 is outfitted with a durable composite bottom, centering point, and cutting ring to ensure that you can safely and comfortably re-drill old holes without the binding and jarring that many curved blade augers experience. The 8” model weighs just 23 lbs, features a full length 40-inch auger, and cuts 1600” of ice on a single charge. All ION augers come with a Reverse mode for flushing slush, and are backed by an industry-leading 3-year warranty—which includes the battery.
5 AMP HOUR, GEN 1 BATTERY
A high-performance, 5 Amp Hour, 40V MAX Lithium-ion battery powers the 8" ION R1 through up to 1600" of ice on a single charge.
30% FASTER CUTTING SPEEDS
A re-optimized power system makes the ION R1 more powerful, offering up to 30% faster cutting speeds than previous Gen 1 ION augers.
LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY TO CARRY
At only 23 pounds, the 8 inch ION R1 weighs nearly 40% less than typical gas-powered augers. This means less effort drilling and more opportunity to focus on fishing.
DURABLE COMPOSITE BOTTOM
Ensures smooth and consistent cutting in all conditions and easily re-drills old holes. Aggressive design cuts through ice quickly with an incredibly smooth breakthrough. Composite material provides additional resistance to icing up.
STEEL AUGER CONSTRUCTION
A durable, classic steel flite design helps clear ice and snow from the hole.
PLANETARY GEAR TRANSMISSION
ION® offers the optimal combination of weight and high-powered delivery, giving you maximum efficiency at the lightest weight possible.
AUGER CENTERING POINT
Allows for ultra-precise blade positioning when opening new holes, or re-opening frozen holes.
Reverse eliminates the need for an ice skimmer by flushing the slush ice down the hole.
LED DRILLING LIGHTS
Bright LED lights positioned under the powerhead illuminate the ice surface when drilling, making the ION R1 ideal for operation at night, or inside dark shelters.
COMPACT HANDLEBAR DESIGN
By bringing the handlebars closer to the powerhead, drilling next to walls in ice houses is easier than ever.
ION® offers a 3-Year Limited Warranty covering the entire unit: including powerhead, auger bit, and the battery!
5 Amp Hour
Up to 1600" Per Charge
