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.
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.
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.
3-YEAR WARRANTY: ION offers a 3-Year Limited Warranty covering the entire unit—including the battery!
