I was nearing the end of harvest last fall with my L3....

Drove up to the gravity wagon to unload, and dang if I didn't drive into a dip, and the auger hit the wagon right on the wagon corner.

The protection bar that is ip under the auger caught on the wagon, and before I got stopped moving, it pulled the auger backwards some.

Dang it! Happened in an instant.

So, everything worked, and I finished up the last 25 acres of corn.

But, that ain't right. The auger now is in so close when it folds away it bend in the ladder where it slides down and sits on.

I don't see any kinks or bends or anything anywhere in the setup. The ball swivel appears to have taken the stress well.

But, now, then, how do I straighten this out again? When there is no obvious area that got tweaked..... I will assume it moved things a bit coming right out of the tank at the root, only takes a degree of two, and hopefully loosening the struts and hardware mounting it will all give back a little, but just not sure if there is an alignment procedure for this?

Dang it. I was mighty mad at myself that day.

Paul

Probably tweaked the swivel mount just a bit. I would see if the ladder can be moved somewhat before trying to straighten the mount. If it still works well, keep the balls and the hanger bearing inside the auger tube lubed up and drive on.

I caught a highline pole with a 700 Case we backed it into the pole and it came right back where it kinked the tube coming out of the bin not sure if that will work for you but it did on ours

......it"s so you could visit my parts M2.....My F2 rolled backward into a block building, catching it by the end of the auger. That ripple on the bottom of the grain tank was more obvious, and a day or so straightening.

When I bought my L2 the previous owner hit a pole because the auger come out when his can of pop fell on the button and he swiped the auger right off. He said his insurance covered it and he installed a complete new bin floor, a new bin panel where the unloader attached, both augers new and new tube and he got a good used swivel assembly off an R60. R60 swivel is a better stronger swivel. Do you have insurance?
