Correct Westfield Auger PTO Set Up

When setting up a swing away auger the measurement between the tractor PTO output shaft and the input coupling on the auger are critical. If the distance is too short the PTO shaft will bottom out as the auger is raised. This will cause damage to the PTO shaft or the auger.  Please read the manual carefully. You can watch the instructional video here

For more information on your Westfield auger visit our Parts and Manuals page or call 1800 945 069

Westfield Auger History 

The modern-day grain auger was invented by Peter Pakosh in Toronto, Canada in 1945. In early 1950 Abraham Plett, of Pletts Industries, decided he could build a better auger after the undercarriage failed on an auger he bought to resell to a customer. Abraham chose the name Westfield for his new auger line, along with the now iconic  yellow and red colour scheme. The first two Westfield augers were sold in 1951.

AGI Westfield   1951 - 2021

Westfield turns 70. In 1950  Abraham Plett purchased a grain auger to resell to a customer. He soon realised that he could design a better auger. Abraham sold his first two augers in 1951, choosing the name Westfield along with the now familiar yellow and red colors.  

In 1968, a new factory was opened in Rosenort, Manitoba.  On the 15th of May 2000, Ag Growth International (AGI) acquired Westfield. AGI increased Westfield’s manufacturing facilities to 16,200 square meters. AGI Westfield employs 300 people and produces 14,000 augers a year.

Westfield Dealers Kept Busy 

"2021 is shaping up to be even busier than 2020 if current trends are any indication."  Stuart Hatton from Grainland in Moree said they were already fully booked until early April and the winter crop has not been planted yet. "The main demand is for larger Westfield swing away augers. The 94  and 114 foot models are in very high demand, we also have some of the big 16 inch, 125 foot augers to build so it is going to be a busy year for us again."
