Pengo auger teeth are best known for their incredible cutting performance. These teeth are incredibly sharp, and that’s because of the quality of material used for their construction. The company uses high-quality tungsten carbide tip and premium quality steel for the body in the construction of their teeth. But just like the rest of the teeth, the cutting performance of the teeth starts deteriorating with time.
What usually causes Pengo auger teeth cutting performance to deteriorate? There are numerous factors that would result in poor teeth cutting performance. Here are some of the reason why a drop in performance could be happening:
One of the major causes of the poor cutting performance of Pengo auger teeth is exposure to extremely rocky conditions. Each type of auger teeth is made for specific conditions. If teeth are exposed to conditions that are too rough or too hard than what they are made for, they will wear down quickly and that will negatively affect the cutting performance of teeth. The best way to avoid such high rate of wear is by using your auger teeth appropriately. Before you start working, check out the condition of the soil so that you don’t make such mistakes.
One thing some people don’t understand is that you drill sticky soil conditions, you are likely to affect the cutting performance of the teeth negatively. Sticky teeth make prevent free rotation of auger teeth. That results in teeth being exposed to wear and abrasion only on area or side. With that, there is an imbalance in the teeth and that significantly reduces the cutting performance of the teeth like never before. Fast than others, and that could explain why your teeth. However, this is a problem that can be solved by cleaning the teeth regularly to remove sticky material.
What’s powering the auger attachment and what power is it producing? That’s a critical question that you need an answer before investing in Pengo auger teeth. If you are using a skid steer, then you should check the power produced being transferred to the auger attachment. If skid steer is producing less power than required, then you will have a problem with teeth performance. If a hydraulic system drive such as excavator, check if adequate pressure is being produced and transmitted to the auger. If the machine is generating less pressure, then you should have the problem fixed by a technician.
