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.

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 1600 inches of drilling power with the 8 inch auger bit.
At only 23 lbs., the ION R1 is incredibly lightweight 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.
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.
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.
