    ION R1 / Gen1 / 10 Inch / 39300

    We took the world’s best auger—the original ION—and made it better. The ION R1 is a brand-new powerhouse that utilizes the Lithium-ion 5 Ah Gen 1 battery platform, paired with a brand-new motor that adds 35% more power and significant speed upgrades over previous Gen 1 ION Augers. The R1 is outfitted with a precision polymer bottom, and a centering point and cutting ring to ensure that you can safely and easily re-drill old holes without the binding and jarring that many curved blade augers can have. Available in 8” and 10” configurations, all R1 augers come with reverse and 2 led lights and are backed by an industry-leading 3-year warranty—which includes the battery. 8" weighs 23 lbs., 10" weighs 24lbs.

    5Ah Gen 1 Battery

    The ION R1 features a 5 amp-hour Lithium-ion battery with over 60% more capacity than our original ION®. This means more holes, freedom for longer days on the ice, and more fishing. A single charge produces up to 800 inches of drilling power with the 10 inch auger bit.

    Lightweight

    At only 24 lbs., the ION R1 is an incredibly lightweight 10 inch auger and easy to manage. With comfortable bicycle-style handlebars that put your hands in a comfortable position, the R1 takes the work out of ice drilling.

    Composite Bottom

    The ION R1 ensures smooth and consistent cutting in all conditions and easily re-drills old holes thanks to its aggressive bottom design. A high-strength custom composite cutting head quickly cuts through the ice and provides an incredibly smooth breakthrough.

    Reverse

    ION features a reverse button which allows you to flush the slush back down through the hole you’ve drilled. Simply place your auger into the hole and place the blades below the ice, then press and hold the reverse button for 15-20 seconds to flush your hole clean.



    FEATURES

    5 AMP HOUR, GEN 1 BATTERY
    This Gen 1, 5 Amp Hour battery offers a 60% higher storage capacity than the original ION® battery. This extra capacity powers the 10" ION R1 through up to 800" 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.
    ION® REVERSE
    Reverse eliminates the need for an ice skimmer by flushing the slush ice down the hole.
    HIGH-STRENGTH COMPOSITE POLYMER CUTTING HEAD
    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.
    AUGER CENTERING POINT
    Allows for ultra-precise blade positioning when opening new holes, or re-opening frozen holes.
    PLANETARY GEAR TRANSMISSION
    ION® offers the optimal combination of weight and high-powered delivery, giving you maximum efficiency at the lightest weight possible.
    TWO LED LIGHTS
    Positioned under the powerhead, two bright LED lights illuminate the ice surface, making the ION R1 ideal for night operation or drilling inside dark shelters.
    LIGHTWEIGHT, EASY TO CARRY
    At only 24 pounds, the 10 inch ION R1 weighs nearly 40% less than typical gas-powered augers. A lighter 10 inch auger than many traditional 8 inch augers.
    COMPACT HANDLEBAR DESIGN
    By bringing the handlebars closer to the powerhead, drilling next to walls in ice houses is easier than ever.
    3-YEAR WARRANTY
    ION® offers a 3-Year Limited Warranty covering the entire unit—including the battery!
