Does anyone have info on this company as far as quality. Specifically the X1475 model?
have a bunch of mcmillen stuff never a single problem
Thanks for the quick response. The auction has two of these availible brand new with a auger bit attached. I was trying to figure out a good price for one of them.
We have a McMillan auger with 3 bits. I think the bits are 9", 18", and 36". It's always worked great with no problems. They seem to be well built.
got a mcmillen, dont know the model,lunched a bearing in it and called mcmillen to find out about parts,all i can say is mcmillen's cust serv.blow's big time.did a little research as it turns out all planatary augers,all the part's except the hydraulic motor,are made by auburn gear,the same co. that makes differential's for car's&trucks,one of the best co's i've ever delt with.any way these auger co's.stick a steel case around auburn gears parts,put there name on it and sell as theirs,and seem to charge triple for parts.Mc,wanted $80.00 for one bearing.got a rebuild kit from auburn gear,2 bearings,seals thrust washers,lock rings,and sealer,for $102.00 to my door,in 2 days.just a little info i thought i'd pass on.
I believe that McMillian is part of Paladin attachments now. The same people who own Bradco,FFC ect. http://www.paladinbrands.com/
I'll try to grab this head/auger Saturday at auction. I believe this unit sells for $2500 to $2800, if I'm lucky I can get it for 60% of that.
