    Default Eskimo Auger clutching

    Anyone torn into their auger drivecase?

    Mine in no longer spinning due to some unforeseen circumstances involving ice thicker than shaft length :lol

    Ever lock your up?

    Geared or clutched?

    Any info in appreciated. Btw it's the 12hp model, 2 seasons old.

    P.S.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I would take it apart and check to see if something is binding it up. I'd start with the gear box first and if that looks okay, rip into the clutch housing. The clutches are real simple, not much to go wrong with them. I did see one Eskimo do something similar. I actually picked it up really cheap because the owner thought it was seized up. After I took it apart, I found a bolt that had backed out and was preventing the clutch mechanism from turning.
