Hi S.S.
Welcome to the Forum. Could be your auger belt is stretched and is slipping under load...or, your worm gear in the gearbox is badly worn. Lastly, if it was a shear bolt problem, you have 2 that are gone. MH

don't know the machine, but imagining the sprocket is on a shaft.
Is the shaft turning along with the sprocket?
If not, is there a broken key on the shaft for the sprocket?
you'd have to remove the sprocket to find out.

On your model, is the auger driven by a chain from the right wheel?

I had one many years ago that worked that way. There was a "slip clutch" between the wheel and the drive sprocket - I think its purpose was to allow the auger to stop without damaging anything if something got caught in it.

If yours has the same setup and the clutch is broken or got grease or oil in it (it relies on friction and grease/oil would make it slip), it could explain the problem you're having.

yes it is driven by a train from the right wheel. I still need to get the manual so I can figure it out. I will take wheel off this week and let you know. Is that clutch readily available.
