Like the idea but what of 100 km/hr gravel/highway transport?

The MaxiGrip ice stud has been developed for working vehicles and footwear for use in icy, winter conditions. It is intended for off-road and working vehicles

I would say not recommended, but worth a try on frozen gravel roads. I have a feed truck that I think I should try them on.

I can see it being great on a feed truck and also a yard use auger, they can be pretty helpless.
They look pretty big and heavy, high speed centrifugal force alone could cause damage.

Sakundiak with a Hawes 4 wheel mover with 2 clutch switchs, reverse gear box and light kit. Mine is a 53' so I can load my fert bins and some 3200 hoppers I have. Just bought it this year. Buddy bought a wheat heart with the 2 skinny wheel mover. What a pain in the ass that thing is. Moving it where there are ruts or snow ridges that thing just body slams you. The thing shakes like a paint shaker when running. After having the Sakundiak and running the Wheatheart there is no comparison. The little money he saved wasn't worth it. Actually bought himself junk IMO.

Is that the motorcycle type handlebar steering/throttle sort of arrangement?
Used a friends auger with that this spring when harvesting for him, quite liked it.
Except...why would anyone put it on the wrong side of the auger (passenger side)?
Gather it can be the other way.

Yes Don motorcycle style. Only one thing that could make that system even better would be to have steering rods to all 4 wheels. It currently is hooked to 2 of the 4 wide castor wheels. If it was hooked to all 4 it really would cross ridges even better than it already does. You bring up an interesting point on passenger side thing. Now I am trying to picture my auger. Can't remember which side my key is on now. Haven't used it enough to be etched in my mind but should be using it lots here soon.

You can pull an auger that fast on your roads??!! Couldn't dream of that around here.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Thank you, key location likely the determining factor, good point.
But, when I bought my first Sukundiak told the dealer get the controls on the correct (drivers) side, which they did.

Remember Farm Progress Show in Regina about 20 years ago, my friend Harv asked a rep why their auger controls were backwards, rep says because thatís the way people like them.
LIKE WHO? Harv asked.

Thanks for all the ideas. Definitely a few that I never thought of.

Here's my Coles notes.

1- electric clutch wth remote.
2- lights
3- reversing gearbox. Any one have a source for a 50 ish hp one?
4- good tires or studs/chains. Won't be seeing highway travel except maybe 1/2 mile down the road.
5- shovel and broom holder.
6- battery disconnect on a good oversized battery.

I'm just curious on what a pivoting spout is? Is that for aiming the spout for those drivers that can't line up under an auger with a 250' run at it?

What's the deal with the steerable castors? Are you steering them in conjunction with running the wheel motors or is that just for keeping it straight when crossing ruts etc?

This would be for mostly hoppers. I have a few flat bottoms with 10" unloads I made and they would be probably too slow for this.

Just got her home yesterday.
