I eliminated the need for expensive hydraulic motors on my bin unloading augers by running a drive shaft from the auger gearbox of my main auger to the unloading auger. I slipped one end of the driveshaft onto the stub shaft on the auger gearbox and hooked the other end of the driveshaft to the flighting shaft on the bin unloading auger. It lets me use one $55 driveshaft to power the unloading augers on all my bins instead of needing a separate hydraulic motor for each bin unloading auger. You should install a shield over the driveshaft for safety. (Jeff Wanous, Rt. 4, Owatonna, Minn. 55060 ph 507455-0027).
