Remember when I had to help with getting an auger out of the combine? Several days ago, I got to help put it back in the shaft. It was a challenge, but we managed. Brad had put flighting on the auger, and it now looked like this:
Because it’s a used combine the auger edges were worn out. Instead of getting a new auger, Brad put the flighting on and it’s as good as new. This auger was one that moves the corn up to the bin in the combine. He then went to work on the auger that takes it out of the combine. It looked in desperate need of some flighting.
Now our combine is more efficient. That can help make up for some of the operator error.
