1020 auger woes

Recommended Posts

I had 10 acres of beans left for the neighbor and this happened. 

 

A shop an hour away wants $2950 for an exchange one.  Does anyone else have a remidy for the auger breakage?

I sold my whole head with air reel for 5k. 3k seems a little steep for just the auger

That's what my first impression was.

Wow never seen an auger break like that did it have a crack before you started ? those are usually pretty tough I'd look into welding a  a steel band around it

One thing I learned on the combine trail, most problems can be fixed with a portable MIG welder and a torch.

No I've heard of several doing it and the shop I called had 2 on hand, early and late model ready to go.  I'm tempted to pull it out and weld it but that may be a spring project.  I'm not out anything.

Are you sure that isn't supposed to be green? Sorry, I couldn't help it. Never seen one just break without some kind of foreign material to help, such as a tree log. At least it was the last ten acres.:D
