How to preserve and protect your auger

Your planting season is only as effective as the quality of your auger. Here's what you need to know to get the most out of your auger:

  1. Operate augers at low speeds and keep the mouth of the auger well supplied with seed. This helps maintain a fuller auger and minimizes seed damage while planting, helping your yield down the line. ¹
  2. Replace worn augers: Regularly inspect augers, especially if you are using standard steel augers. As they get worn down, the amount of seed damaged is likely to increase. ¹ Staying on top of auger maintenance can start growing season on the right foot and avoid issues later on in the year.
  3. Use UHMW Wearshoes to protect the steel and keep your auger in prime condition, year after year. This simple, durable poly helps ensure gentle seed handling and extend the life of your equipment, saving you money and protecting your seed. With easy installation and customizable sizes, it's a small decision that can have a big impact on your yield.
  4. Keep bearings and tubes in good shape. If the auger wobbles within the bus because of either worn bearings or a worn motor mount, seed damage will increase due to increased contact with the flighting edge. ¹ Regular inspections and maintenance will help avoid this problem and keep your equipment running smoothly.
