Grain Auger Accidents

grain auger accident

A grain auger is used to move grain from one location to another. It is 50 to 60 feet in length and can be cranked to varying heights. Generally, it is powered by the power take-off on a tractor or other piece of equipment. Because it has a turning shank, entanglement accidents can occur if the auger is not properly guarded. As a result of the entanglement, the operator can suffer extreme lacerations, fractures and even the loss of a limb. In addition, if the grain auger is moved in the elevated position, electrocution can occur if contact is made with electrical high wires. Finally, an elevated grain auger can be unstable resulting in roll-over accidents.
