One Answer To Moving Big Augers
Louis Saurette, of Ambigny, Manitoba, bought a 10-in., 51-ft. auger and soon found out it was difficult to move around on soft ground or snow. So, with the help of his sons and a friend, he mounted the auger on an old 44 Massey tractor.
Louis uses the tractor both to guide the auger and to run the pto. He mounted the pto and transmission from an old combine on the tractor. "The hydraulics of the tractor run an orbit motor on the winch to lower and raise the auger. We also mounted the auger hopper on caster wheels, which makes it possible to move the augeranywhere without removing it," he concludes. The auger is not rigged for over-the-road travel.
