SB800 how loud is the chain?

Started up my SB800 for the first time. It is spinning and seems to be working well. Wanted to know how much noise the chain and blower makes. I have no idea how loud this is supposed to be. I would suppose the chain could make some noise. Just wanted to make sure the bearings are good. They all spun smoothly.

Also at first the unit was bobbing up and down, but then I rotated one of the augers so that they are opposite each other and it smoothed it out.

Motorcycle chain lube makes the chain run quietly on my blower. The only noise I hear is the second stage rotor scraping slightly. It has been that way for years so it must be OK.
