• 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" and the 10" ION R1 through 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 23 pounds, the 8 inch ION R1 and 24 pounds, the 10 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.
• 3-YEAR WARRANTY - ION® offers a 3-Year Limited Warranty covering the entire unit—including the battery!
ION® 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.
