So dad and I were having a discussion this afternoon while it was snowing on what ever happened to Scoop A Second grain Augers? It seemed they owned the auger market around here in the late sixty's/early seventy's. Dad seemed to remember that the UFA sold them in Alberta. I see a PAMI report form 1983 for one. So did they fold up? Or were they bought out?

I just assumed they ran out of old tank parts to build them out of. They were solid, and heavy, at least the two we have owned over the years.

Yep in Alberta, sold thru UFA, maybe was others, dunno. The second series in the early seventies on, were ugly augers to move, so dam heavy on the tail end. 6 inch were slow, 7 inch were respectable, I have one of each. Most of the earlier ones (1960s) that had the drive straight up the tube with no gear box you see now there is nothing left of the tubes or flighting, but the running gear is ideal for mounting a 16 foot or longer electric so some of those here too.

Power-Matic Industries out of Manitoba is who made them, and a quick search turns up they became part of Norstar Industries also of Manitoba.

Few links of interest that come up in that search...
