Has anyone done research on the differences or pros and cons of the Eskimo Hc40 and the Eskimo P1 rocket?
I was going to get an Hc40 but saw this fall that the p1 rocket has come out.
I thought I heard that the P1 might have a lighter built gearcase to save on weight and that it also turns faster.
I am more interested in durability that weight .

I have the HC40 10" propane. Auger speed seems slow at full throttle, but it cuts nice. It's heavy. Really wouldn't mind having an ION right now.

I have a Nils Master bit on a cordless drill for walking out.
The Eskimo will mostly be used when I drive out so weight is not as much of an issue compared to durabilty.
I thought I heard that t P1 gearcase was not as beefy to save on weight.
The technical guy at Eskimo wasn't available to talk this morning. Either way, I will be getting one, for me it will be which one is the more heavier built / durable.
so any input would be appreciated.

mine is either in the back of the pickup or in a sled, so the weight there isn't an issue. pulling it back up out of the hole with an 18" extension is not fun. 6 holes in the wheel house and I'm ready to be done. Reverse would be very handy.

Aside from that, I have had it for 3 years and am happy with the performance. It cuts nice, never short on power, fires right up.
