|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 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.
|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 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.
|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 the battery!
