1/4" is not much on an auger in my opinion.... I would say that if the flighting is not contacting anything adversly and the bearings are not walking too bad in their housings... don't even worry about it. For as fast as it turns it's not likely to ever be a factor.
Re: Snow blower auger bent. Straighten by welding? in reply to RodInNS, 04-26-2013 09:04:37
I have not seen this unit in operation but gearing shows its about 3-4 reduction from engine rpm so its fairly fast about 1000-1200 rpm ( its single stage) its not walking on bearings but with a pen between housing and auger its varying about 1/4 inch ( and with bearings removed you can see a bend in pipe when sighting thru). Looks like owner before me used it as a rock thrower. I have other ways to remove snow but this unit was made for my tractor and would like have the 4 foot for some jobs. Thanks
