Make sure the bucket is tight to the tractor assembly. If the attachment screws are loose, the bucket can flex while working, resulting in occasional contact with the augers. The other issue can be ice and stones/debris that freeze to the rakes after work is done. Next time out, they scrape the bucket until they work loose. MH

I would check the auger bearings The 2 on each side of the housing and also the back bearing to see if its moved. If not sounds like you bent the auger.

did you ever find out what the problem was with this ?

the only machine I had that did that, was the Gilson 55012, and the auger shaft was bent, and the mid bearing on its way out.
