We've had this 40ft 8" Brandt auger for many years now and it has transferred fertilizer, peas, lentils, chickpeas, and hundreds of thousands of bushels of wheat. This has left it in a sad state. Leg Arms can make this auger great again!

    • Thanks for making such interesting and HQ content... NOW time to put LegArms in the Urban Dictionary: Leg arms is a man who has arms the size of most mens upper leg. Etymology (history of word) First applied to Scott Welker in 2018 by the many fans of Welker Farms USworlds channel.

  • Hey LegArms... watching you work caused me to flash back to my Father back on the farm in Kansas. If he needed something... he made it. For example, he made a hay bale elevator out of an old windmill kit. It even kind of looked like your Auger setup.....this was in the 40's and 50's. Thanks to you all for the great content. Russ

  • Place take some time and look at your augers ends. This one looks like there some bigger holes at the entry end that some little kids might get there foot caught once they start helping you more or around you more. Hindsight is 20/20 . I had a class mate in grade school that got his feet and leg caught in one and tore it all up. HIs dad said i know the holes was to big but I just avoided and said i fix it later but never did till it was to late. I know you have to have a good size opening on the augers to get the grain through but also small enough to keep little feet out of them. Remember kids are fast and things can happen fast. Love the channel.

  • Amazing how strong a nick-name can be and how well it "fits" a person. Honestly, go to a small engine shop, see if they have any old good fuel tanks. Most would sell on the cheap, would work a bit better than just a can. Can always make a mounting bracket that sits up higher for your gravity feed. For real thin metal, I prefer to actually use my torch not a mig/tig/stick welder. I have better control of the weld that way. Something you might try to practice with LOL. Great video, cheers :)

  • Love the videos me and my 4 year old son watch everyday even old ones we have watched already. He really loves playing on the map on FS19 he gets mad if we dont bc he cant put the tractors and stuff in the garages. And they did amazing work on the map to make it look like IRL. Keep up the good work guys.

  • Hey Scott, Do you think it may have made slag on the inside of the tube when you weld the piece back in place? I must admit, i am not familiar with that style of welding. I've only used an arc welder.

  • Great work LegArms! Just wanted to say something RE safety.. A good friend just lost an eye using a socket as a drift with his hydraulic press. The socket shattered and went into his eye. Saw you doing the same.. I’ve done the same too, but not anymore or at least using a face shield. Not trying to critique you - hopefully taken in the vain it was intended. Great USworlds channel. Cheers

  • The active coupler they used was because the long driveshaft will expand a lot in the head and put a lot of thrust pressure on the gearbox without it... with the u-joint being solid, that expansion won't have anywhere to go and it will push both ends outward. One end really needs to have a splined end on it, or a floating coupler so it can float. It might be better to put the floating coupler back on and use some rubber matting of some sort to deaden the clanking if it's bugging you... or get a proper lovejoy coupler (they have rubber buffers in them)
