 what to do when post hole driller snags?

Just bought my first tractor, a CK30 manual, with an auger by another manufacturer who recommends instantly turning the tractor key off when the auger snags. Is this the best for the tractor? Wouldn't it be better just to depress the clutch?

Thanks,

tutchunka

Sounds like boiler-plate lawyer speak.

If the auger snags I would think it would snap the shear bolts long before you could get to the key.

Yes, shear bolt will go before anything can be done, but they say that continued rotation can cause the bolt to weld itself to the side.

To shut kioti down the manual wants you to disengage clutch, put everything in neutral, lower rpm, then turn the key off.

It seems better for the tractor to first hit the clutch before doing anything else, instead of just suddenly turning the key off. That is my question though.

I suspect that Kioti's instructions are given more so that when you start the machine next time it's not at full throttle, in gear and with the PTO engaged.

I've laid waste to more than my fair share of shear-bolts in my day. The worst part is that the head gets peened over to the 'downstream' side of the rotation and can be a PITA to get out.

I can't imagine how long you would have to let it spin before it even got hot, let alone hot enough to weld itself together.

Best of luck.

I read with interest these replies and remember once helping my hephew with a very well snagged auger. Nothing sheared and nothing stopped until the full auger was in the ground held by tree roots. So, shear bolts as is any safety device is not 100%. That was when I wondered, where is reverse? It was a lessoned well learned in keep ready to stop the PTO at all times.

I learned the hard way too, reverse was a crow bar and a chain. To avoid that happening to such a degree, lower the 3 point inch by inch so the hydraulics are always about to support the digger rather than allowing it to screw itself all the way into the ground freely when you drop the 3 point lever to the bottom. Then it is more likely to be just a turn or so before you can lift it free.

I understand the crow bar, but the chain? From my limited experience I learned gear ratios are in your favor if clearance allows you to use crow bar or such in the PTO shaft and not the auger shaft.
