Power This Go-Kart With Your Auger Motor And Stop Dragging Gear Sleds By Hand

Here's one for all you hardwater junkies that can't afford a snow machine. You've got to drag that gas auger around anyway, right? Why not put its motor to good use? That's what Wisconsin-based ice fisherman Adam Ford was thinking when he developed what he calls the Ice Auger Machine. The video below shows an earlier prototype of this mini vehicle powered by your auger, but an updated version can be seen here on Ford's KickStarter page. Considering his ice fishing go-kart tops out around 10mph, you might not be going anywhere fast, but you're going easy. Ice heads, what say you? I think it's a pretty smart idea.
