Default ATV mount for auger

A buddy tells me somewhere he seen a ATV with a rack on it for a auger, the rack pivoted so you could just drive the ATV to where you wanted a hole and while the auger was running just pivot it down to drill the hole, then lift and move the ATV out of the way.

Says it had a brand name but can't remember what it was.

Anybody??

It was called the Auger Caddy, but they went out of business.

Here is another, but pretty spendy at $1000: http://augereaser.com/index.htm

Thanks, ya I figured at 68 it might make hole drilling easier, not so sure at a $1000 though.

Default I feel your pain!

I bought one of the kdrill setups and all I can say is WOW! weighs in at 11 #'s and is super easy to use. Added the Clam handle attachment to mine but really doesn't need it. Just nicer to have when you lay it down. Might want to think about one of these! and you can get into the whole thing for around $500 and have a great drill for use year round!
I had one of the auger caddy's when they first came out and frankly was not overly impressed with it, but had it on an atv. Can't tell you anything about the ones that are still available as have never actually seen one in person.

Don't ice fish enough to justify another auger, but ya, it'd probably work better.

Buddy has the ion and I usually let him drill holes, but I like the larger holes for the clam when I use it.

Probably would have bought one of them, but to late now.
