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.

- 5 AMP HOUR, GEN 1 BATTERY
- 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 24 pounds, the 10 inch ION R1 weighs nearly 40% less than typical gas-powered augers. A lighter 10 inch auger than many traditional 8 inch augers.
- 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!
