MK SERIES: FEATURES
Features that are common to our entire line of MK Series augers.
LABOR SAVING HYDRAULIC LIFT WITH IMPROVED LIFT SYSTEM!
Operate the tractor control and smoothly raise the MK
in less than a minute. One person can transport, raise
and position the auger from the tractor seat.
The 4” hydraulic cylinder has heavy 5/16” steel lift
cable with 9,800 lbs. yield strength. Cables run in
large cast iron cable sheaves equipped with bronze bushings.
Shut-off valve in hydraulic line prevents auger from creeping down.
Our longer, lower-profile swinghopper, quickly switched to right or
left-hand operation, fits under most grain trailers. The vertical
transport position provides quick, easy cleanout.
|SAFETY DISCHARGE |
Spring-loaded safety discharge door on the intake hopper
guards against main auger overloading.
Our redesigned lift assist and double roller trackshoe reduces
pressure needed to raise the auger and provides a lower transport position.
|CV-PTO SHAFT |
The Constant Velocity (CV) PTO shaft, equipped with overload
shear bolt, is standard equipment. It assures smooth operation
and longer wear. (Shown with shield partially removed to show detail.)
A Westfield design constant velocity angle-drive replaces the
u-joint in the redesigned feed hopper, eliminating the velocity
fluctuation vibrations for smoother running and less stress on the drive train.
|MECHANICAL DRIVE |
The Westfield designed angled gear box drive is enclosed
for safer operation. Note large opening in the boot for
unrestricted grain flow. The boot incorporates an exclusive
Westfield designed “Enhanced Grain Pickup System” which
maintains constant grain flow as the auger is raised.
Upper bearing thrust adjuster allows flighting pressure to be equalized on both upper and lower bearings
for smoother operation, longer flight life.
All MK augers are equipped with an overlaod shear bolt. The CV-PTO shaft, assures smooth operation with vibration-free
running,longer wear and constant high capacity grain flow.
|1000 PTO DRIVE
Optional on MK130Plus models. Allows operation
with high horsepower tractors-reverser included.
Ability to reverse all flighting. Allows quick and easy
clean out (shown with guards removed for clarity).
