Grain augers have probably replaced more hard work from handling grain than most other machines, but they have also been the cause or source of more injury and even death to farm workers and children than any other machine for the number of hours used.

Many of the injuries suffered are amputations, lacerations, broken bones, and electrocutions. Most, if not all, could have been prevented with safer working practices and machinery.
