Add-On Self-Propelled Tracked Auger Mover
The hydraulic-driven track has plenty of traction for moving through mud and manure or over slippery concrete floors, says Mary Utigaard, manufacturer. The 18-in. wide rubber track is driven by an orbit motor and fitted with a hydraulic steering cylinder that makes it easy for the operator to precisely position auger. Another cyinder lifts the track off the ground for trans-port
"It's one of the simplest auger movers on the market to install - no welding or other alterations required - and it's got much more traction than auger movers using powered wheels," says Utigaard.
It's controlled by a set of valves that mount on the auger tube and comes complete with a hydraulic pump. If you have an engine driven auger, you can drive the pump off that. If you have a pto-driven auger, you can install a small motor to drive the pump. Sells for $2,695 (Canadian).
