    I'm still using my 20+ yr old Strikemaster Mag III plus. Great unit, and I believe Rapala is making them now. The only thing I've done to it is a new plug every year, and just recently replaced the blade I've been sharpening for years with a new one.

    I've had 3 power augers, all jiffy's and the current propane powered one is hands down the cats of them all. Super easy starting in any temp, and cuts a ton of holes on one tank.

    I just sold my 8" Eskimo from around 2008 after replacing a primer bulb and making my own fuel tank for it having drilled thousands of holes. Started using the Eskimo 10" Z71 shark now.

    Works as intended.

    I also have a 8" Eskimo with a Viper engine, had it for three years and no problems so far after literally hundreds of holes. Only think i did was Loctite main shaft allen bolt after installation as it loosened up.
