Auger collar bolt


Gus

Question

What do you guys do to keep your collar bolt from getting loose? I've got a strikemaster lazer 2hp and I'm constantly having to check it. I tried some of the red loctite last time and I was surprised to find out that although it helped, it still was somewhat loose when I checked it.

Guess what, I lost my auger head last year because of that dumb bolt! Drilled a hole and at the right possible moment as the auger bit through the ice the auger went for a swim. That was the day the underwater camera almost paid for itself grin.gif

I went to a hardware store and matched the size of the strikemaster bolt to a new 2" bolt with a lock nut. Must be the right diameter to screw into the threads, then add the lock nut on the end and tighten. That ended all of the problems!

I've got the same auger. We had a post last winter about this topic...it seems to be a fairly common problem. I just keep a wrench with me, and check it periodically to make sure it is tight. I also have a new/spare collar bolt that I carry around with me - just in case. You can order them from Strikemaster's website.

I don't like getting them too firmly locked in, because you need to be able to take it out if you want to put the extension on...

Easy solution.......this has been discussed before, but all you need to do is put a couple layers of black tape (or duct tape)around the collar after tightening the bolt down. Simple, works great, and can be easily removed when / if you need to add an extension. I always carry a roll of duct tape when on the road.

get a bolt long enough to come out the other side, drill a hole through the end of the bolt and stick a cotter pin in it.

Try Thread Loc. it will hold the bolt well. It comes in a red tube and you can get it at any auto store. It is a liquid that you put on the bolt and it works like a glue to hold it in place. You can still remove the bolt but it will take a little more torque. JB weld will weld it and then you will never be able to take it out so you don't want to do that. The double nut idea will work always has always will.

Or maybe you guys just need a jiffy they spin so fast the bolts don't have an opportunity to fall out. LOL

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.
    • Andre.y
      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
