Auger Mover Hooks to Pickup Bumper"I have been farming on my own without any extra help for a number of years and needed an easier, safer way to move big grain augers so I built the first E-Zee Auger Mover about 21/2 years ago for my own use. It worked so well I've started manufacturing them," says Sterling McAlister, McAlister Mfg., Tompkins, Sask.
The auger moving attachment is designed to let you maneuver big augers around the farm yard with a pin hitch that attaches to the front bumper of a pickup. It consists of a V-shaped frame - made out of sq. tubing - that bolts to either side of the auger axle and extends out under the upper end of the auger. A telescoping brace runs from the V-shaped hitch up to a bracket attached to the underside of the auger.
When hooked up to a pickup, grain truck or even a tractor, the auger can be easily backed into the unloading door of a grain bin or towed around the farmyard. When not in use, the hitch folds up under the auger.
The hitch weighs about 50 lbs. and in-stalls without welding on Brandt or Sakundiak augers. Can be custom-fitted to other augers, as needed. Suggested retail is about $160.
