Aftermarket Bubble Auger Flighting

Anybody know where to get aftermarket flighting for the bubble auger on a 700 series lexion? Called Rosetown but they said they didnít have anything even close.

pull the auger off and take it to a welding shop and get them to reform heavier steel around the old and then run a small rod on the top edge of the flighting, we just did the top 1/2 half of the auger.. had that done to one of my older machines and it worked great and lasted for ever

The only other places that have flighting are in the states that I know of. Tried to find a left hand fighting for a coal auger and Rosetown said they would have to order it in. As northern farmer said weld her up, but have them use hard surfacing rods meant for abrasion on the top lip not just 7018 rod. I have my coal auger done every 3 years with it and it looks like new.

I would call rosetown flighting and talk to someone else. They were rebuilding them
Sad sacks in north battleford will rebuild it and does a very good job. Think about $800.

I rebuilt mine with sectional flighting made of 1/4" stainless. It wasn't worth it in a way. The original auger had a slight wobble. After cutting the flighting and rewelding the stainless, it shook even more. Long story short, it works good now, but doing it again I would try to add to the original flighting.

BTW, the 1/4" sectional stainless is wearing much quicker than I ever anticipated.

Might be 6-8 years ago I got flighting for a 480 from Rosetown. It was just flighting and I had to cut the old stuff off the center pipe and weld the new back on. We tried really hard to pull it the same pitch as the original when we welded the new back on but it still vibrated bad so I would get it balanced if you go that way. We even set it up in the lathe with a support bearing on the welding table so we could spin it but we could not get it to balance. Camrose Machine and Welding used to make replaceable Heavy Duty flighting (1/4" or more) that was just one turn for each piece and I have used those to repair augers. By adding just one or two of those on a bubble up auger I did not have balance problems on a different combine. I would think you should be able to do that repair without removing the auger, but that is another whole discussion about how to weld on a "computer" without frying something!!

I have bought a high density polyethelene auger cover kit from shoup for my 2388 combine which bolts on in one pitch sections but the last bit of the auger is a different pitch on my combine for some reason and they won't fit . But if your auger is just a straight pitch they would work great .

Extend the top of the flighting right up to the bearing and it will greatly reduce the wear. Every few years touch up the flighting with a small mig welder and it greatly increases the life.
