Jiffy has long been a favorite for the durability and performance of their gear. The legendary Model 30’s gasoline-powered 2-cycle engine with a high-torque transmission quickly drills holes through ice with the 8" or 10" XT D-Ice’r Blade. Features foam handles for comfort. Backed by Jiffy's 2-2-2 warranty (two-year engine, transmission and STX blades warranty). Weight: 38 lbs. Sizes: 8", 10".
I used to work on these at a dealer, and no they are not the same. They used to use Tecumseh motors. which were made in Wisconsin, sadly they went out of business because of all the new cheaper Chinese made engines on the market. Sadly Jiffy is now using one of the Chinese made engines.
