The wide stance of the undercarriage improves stability and is constructed with square tubes to enhance strength and durability. In addition to being well balanced, the undercarriage features automotive-type hubs and bearings that improve ease of handling.
The top drive is housed in a sealed grease bath and features a chain-tightener. The components in the sealed oil bath are resistant to heat, dust, debris and moisture, reducing maintenance and enhancing the longevity of the chain and sprockets.
The sturdy lightweight assembly allows the conventional auger to be easily transported. The trailing swivel wheels can be raised hydraulically to allow for increased turning radius as well as smooth transitions over uneven terrain.
The new engine mount has no moving parts for easy set up. The engine is leveled by the belt guard system which ensures perfect belt tension at every auger position - the separate leveling rod has been eliminated.
The intake end of the auger flighting is supported by a wooden, self lubricating bushing, which is highly resistant to dirt contamination and is maintenance free. A narrow safety guard and removable clevis hitch improve access to bins with small auger ports.
The wheel spindles are now a bolt-on style, allowing easy set up and replacement. This also helps facilitate the auger mover installation.
