Caution           :

  
  1. DO NOT use the K-Drill Auger for anything else except for which it is intended-for drilling ice!
  2. When drilling keep proper footing and balance at all times while drilling.
  3. DO NOT leave drill unattended in partially drilled hole.
  4. Train inexperienced operators to regularly clear hole during drilling.
  5. Dress Properly - DO NOT wear loose clothing or jewelry.  They can be caught in moving auger. 
    1. Use of substantial footwear is recommended for ice fishing. NO OPEN TOE SHOES!
  6. During the operation of cutting the ice, the auger could possibly stop if it comes in contact with a foreign object or if it binds in the hole.  In conditions of thick ice, be sure to pull the auger out of the ice several times to assure excess ice shavings do not buildup in the hole as this will bind the drill and make it hard to lift out once hole is complete.  Beyond 24" of ice it is best to clear the hole of ice shavings every 5 seconds.
  7. After cutting the ice fishing holes, the auger should ALWAYS be set in a safe place to prevent personal injury or damage to the auger shaft or blade(s).
  8. Keep your electric drill assembly out of water and remember a warm fully charged battery will assure your drill will be operating at its maxim performance and will deliver the maximum # of holes per charge.
  9. Inspect K-Drill auger periodically , and if damaged, have it repaired or replaced by an authorized service facility.  **See our address below**
  10. Keep the blades sharp and clean for best performance and reduce the risk of injury.  Follow instructions for maintenance and changing of replacement blades on the website or in your Manual.
  11. Make sure the drill switch is in a locked position when changing blades. After changing the blades make sure to ALWAYS put the safety cover on the auger.
  12. When changing replacement blades - make sure someone helps hold the auger when changing the replacement blades. 
  13. Storage - Make sure to store the K-Drill auger in a safe location, and out of reach of children and animals.  MAKE SURE THE SAFETY COVER IS IN PLACE!

Safety Tips

  

Safety first!

 

Do not remove the blade cover until you are ready to drill - Blades are sharp!  Keep the safety cover on the cutting head at all times unless you are actually drilling holes.
