How do you like this attachment? Works well?

Yes works well. It’s adjustable for width and how deep you want. It will tear out grass depending on how it’s set. But you need weight in the weight boxes in order to do that.

Slowly going back together. Hoping to get the auger in tomorrow. That’s when the scratching the paint will begin. Jumpins. Oh well put some rags or cardboard in and see it that helps. Scratched up the John Deere thrower when I put the auger back in it, and used some rags to try and stop that. Oh well.
So I’ll pack the auger bearings with grease. Put the auger in and install the chain. And adjust the auger end plates to tension the chain and get the auger as close to the thrower bucket. Had the auger drive chain soaking in waste oil since I took this thrower apart. Should be well oiled. Any way, I’ll see how I get along tomorrow.

A little more done today. Got the auger in, no scratches.
So cleaned the rust and dirt out of the centre tube and packed the bearings on the ends of the auger. Sprayed some rust check in the tube to help keep it from rusting. Then, my genius mind thought, why not fill the tube with oil. So I used gear oil in it. Filled up to about running out. So now some of that oil will get into the bearings from the inside as it’s turning and lube them. The oil will leak out over time. But will give it a good coat. Got the chain on and end plates adjusted. All spins good.
No pins in the tractor for the thrower to slide on to. Some one had bolts and nuts there for it. So I found some stuff to make shoulder bolts and are grade 8. So will see how that pans out.
