ice auger help


Recommended Posts

I would just take off your cutting head and remove the bolts to your gear case and take a look just to see if there are some metal chunks or if it just needs a little grease. The gears on my old model 30 were all steel so unless you hit a rock or bottom it would be hard to wreck but stranger things have happened.

I've seen a lot of old augers over the years and one thing remains constant. You really go to screw up to tear up a gear box on a model 30. I'd suggest cracking it open as suggested above and put some grease in it. It will never be real quiet, but some new grease definely won't hurt anything. Don't go nuts but give her a few shots.
