as far as the bearings being in water goes, i dont see how that would be any different then a pto pump that gets pulled out in the spring for a couple days then put away. just grease often with good grease and bearing failure shouldnt happen to that much more often.

our pto pump bearings last atleast five years, just try to grease daily or every other and before it gets put away

I didnít realize they used an actual grain auger. The one I looked at they were using a pump hooked to the auger tube and chassis (flighting removed). Simply drive under and fill.

Thanks for the replies. I've got a 7 inch Farm king that is used for fert. I got to put new flighting in it. Think I'll have to drag it to the dugout and give it a test before I start modifying things.

It will work great for a few feet of head. More than that will get iffy.

Old concept from an Archimedes screw. The city of New Orleans had a dozen or more pump stations built in the early 1900's using that concept to dewater the city. Think 20' screws. It worked good until neglect, mismanagement, and Katrina caught up with it.
