Finding stuff in a flex auger is NEVER a pleasant surprise.
It almost always happens on a weekend and usually ends up killing whatever plans you had for a relaxing Saturday or Sunday.
Last item that I found in a flex auger looked a lot like a piece of a rotor vane out of our combine but I'm not exactly sure how it would have made it from the corn bin into the feed bin as it would have had to go through the hammermill screen.
Somehow the auger stopping ended up frying the Halo's on 2 feedlines that are on the same breaker. And it killed about 4 hours of time for 3 guys on a Saturday.
Sunday morning here. Luckily have feed in 4 other bins that all drop in same place. Flip a switch and back to business.
This piece was in drop by motor. Only drop on this line. Just kicked out motor luckily. About a 1/2 hour tonight and 5 trips across farm to shop I had it going again.
