This is a forged heavy duty repair hub designed for welding onto 3-1/2" OD industrial tubing. It features a multi-hole design with 3/4" and 5/8" holes. Hole patterns fit Eterra, Danuser, McMillen and others. Our design is unique as it features a wave pattern for welding to the tubing. If you look at your failed hub, the breaks usually occur along the straight line. When you weld ours, you are welding along a radius which gives you a longer welded surface and a curved line. This helps to reduce the stresses that occur when drilling and makes for a much stronger drive.
These are industrial hubs used in the manufacture of industrial augers. These are not built the same as Eterra Augers. Eterra auger drives use heavy wall tubing with an OD of 2-7/8". We have discovered that some people are using these to build their own augers or extensions. If you do so, then you must understand the difference between pipe and tubing. Tubing is measured as OD and pipe is measured as ID. If you try to use standard pipe, you will have two issues:
1. The pipe will be a lot weaker and will likely fail. Skid Steer Solutions can not claim responsibility should this issue arise.
2. The pipe will have a different outside dimension and will likely not fit properly.
The quality of the welds that you perform are strictly at your own risk. We recommend that you work with someone who can weld this product professionally to minimize any damage and downtime. Again, we cannot be held responsible for issues pertaining how this product is used or fabricated into a finished item.
