I have a great 7" StrikeMaster Lazer. I've been wanting to buy a high quality cordless drill to power it as I'm developing some arthritis in my shoulders. In looking at the prices for a good cordless drill, I'm wondering about spending some more money and buying a power auger. I already have an adapter for a drill that a friend gave me, but that and the Lazer can easily be sold if I were to buy a power auger. I know the drill can be used for actual drilling use, but I have a fairly new Porter-Cable corded drill to fill these needs. So I'm free and clear to go either direction. What is your experience with either a drill or a power auger? What is the best drill on the market for powering an ice auger right now? Last year I was looking at a Makita and a Panasonic... Is there a power auger namebrand that is the best to buy?
