    Bought a sander at auction, used it once chain broke. I can't find any numbers on the unit. The sale bill said Swenson pv350 9ft sander. Now I try to Google pv350 and can't find anything. Does anyone have any ideas.

    Truck utilities in st Paul is a Swenson dealer. Send Wendy an email on Monday. They will know what model it is ans will ship you out a new chain too.

    If it's a clean break, we usually just replace/reconnect with a master link. Any farm supply or "man's" store has them. $1 or 2

    If you have enough room on the adjuster, you could just remove the bad section and put it back together. Grind off the heads of the pins. Take out broken section and bolt or weld the old pins back in. Should buy you some time till you get a new chain. Lesson learned.......chains only break when the hoppers full. Try Angelos, 1-800-264-3562 for a new one. They list an 8 and a 10 footer for Swenson. If you have a 9, get a 10 and pop some links. Good Luck.

    I was thinking the sprocket, but even if it's drag chain you can just replace a link. Torch out the broken part, grind out rivets, re-install with new single pieces. When done, properly tension, check side to side for even, then grease/oil everything.
