In regions where it is considered normal to make holes in ice you can buy special ice bores from us. There are two basic models; one has a small combustion engine attached to it and the other one is operated by turning it manually. The first one is for those who need a lot of holes quickly and the second one is for those who need fewer holes and are not in a hurry. Motorised versions weigh considerably more and are therefore normally used within a short distance from the vehicle. The lower part of the bore looks just like a very large drill bit. A hole made with a bore is normally 10-15 centimetres across. The length of the drill is normally 60-80 centimetres and this is naturally the maximum thickness of the ice it can penetrate. Drilled holes are very good for ice fishing, unless one is fishing with nets when you need two slightly bigger holes.
