Recently purchased a new Jiffy pro4 ice auger. The throttle on these units freeze and stick open. Had my cable replaced once already by dealer but it is starting to stick again. There have been videos posted online of these augers running wide open uncontrolled in an ice hole with no way to stop it.These units are not safe to use with this current throttle cable design.
