i bought a pro-4 lite in 2016 and in my opinion the auger is under powered even for the 8" blade. I had issues with mine bogging down a lot at the slightest amount of resistance. I believe that jiffy has made some upgrades to the more recent models, however i still would not recommend using anything wider than the 8" blade they come with.


Thanks for the input.

Common sense says it wasn't "designed" for 9 or 10 inch blades. I am wondering if anyone has used a 9 or 10 inch blade with the unit and if so how well it works.

Thanks for the replies.

I am considering picking one of these units up. my question is has anyone bought just the powerhead, and then the 9 or 10 inch auger blade separate? if so how did the unit handle the bigger blade?

Jiffy only sells it with the 6 or 8 inch blade is why I am asking.

If its 50 degrees, you probably wont need to be in an ice house? Or bring a portable and get a cheap hotel. Chances are the ice will survive one day, but will definitely be sloppy.

clam has a slick little box. heavy duty and holds pretty much all my ice fishing gear aside form tip up supplies.

plus it easily fits into jacket or pants pockets to carry with you on the move.

Not my case. Private lake where my family is the only ones fishing 90% of the winter. we are all C&R.

Maybe a die off, but I doubt it due to the fact we would have noticed this summer, and the summer catch rate was normal.

So my lakes water level has risen almost 4 feet in the last year (small lake at around 340 acres) along with all the other lakes connected. I was able to find crappies in all their usual locations all spring and summer but now with ice fishing around I can not find the big groups of them. Past years they've been in the same few spots and they where always around in numbers. This year those same spots hold spotty fish with fish moving through 1 or 2 at a time every 15 to 30 minutes.

I tried everywhere with the same structure in which worked in the past including some shallower spots, in the weeds, and over the deep sand bottoms with not a lot to prove.

I am wondering if anyone here has some thoughts on where these big groups may have headed with the rising water?

I am adding the following to finish my build:

upper bunk bed in the v-nose
2 base cabinets with countertop
tv on a wall mount

there really isn't any other place for those items as i planned wiring and everything else for the front end. I do plan to store the auger and other items in the back to act as a counterweight, but it won't add up to enough to help. it pulls great down the road with the pickup, but bottoms out the wheeler.

I totally get the whole double pivot logic. great to help turn the house, terrible for letting the house turn when you dont want it to. i thought about building my own, slightly different design. just not sure it's worth my time if there is one out there that works that good. did you couple it with the wheel skis?

i don't own a wheeler, yet. i have been contemplating either something with a solid rear axle or buying a suspension lock for an independent rear. problem with the solid rear axle is you lose the receiver hitch and just have a mount for the ball. my fear with the suspension lock is, something has to give. i would rather not end up bending a-arms because the lock bar was stronger.


Once you get a cooler and enough beer for the weekend you will probably have enough counter weight!

I don't have experience but my guess is that if common phones, and Garmins have been able to for the last decade I would imagine the Helix would be just fine.
