S660 Clean grain elevator chain

Hi has anyone else had issues with the paddles on the clean grain elevator chain breaking ? The paddle breaks where the link attached to the chain . This has happened now for the past 2 seasons and I cannot see why this is happerning . Everything in the elevator looks fine and the chain is free to turn over by hand . Thoughts ?

Rumor has it is that they were too hard of chain and were prone to breaking. We bought a new S670 last year and noticed after 100 hours we had to remove a 1/2 link. I called the dealer and they told me they made the chains “softer” so they wouldn’t break so easily.

Not sure if this helps but I had an issue with paddles getting pulled off the chain on my 9750 a while back. To me it seemed like the the paddle was on the wrong side of the chain, ie; the chain should push the paddle up, not pull it up because the bolts were pulling through the rubber. So I went through and put big flat washers on the underside of the paddles and it hasn't given any trouble since.
