Brent unveils new grain cart

Agriculture.com Staff 11/11/2008 @ 10:30am

Three things count the most when it comes to profitably supplying corn, cobs or a mix to a cellulosic ethanol plant - unloading speed, convenience and durability. Brent's new Avalanche grain cart promises to do all three and is specifically designed to move quickly from the combine to the waiting trucks or separating units and back to the combine with speed and efficiency.

The cart features an exclusive drivetrain design that combines a belt drive for the 20 inch horizontal floor auger and a heavy-duty direct-drive 90 degree gearbox for the 22 inch vertical auger for unloading its 1,100 bushel payload in less than 90 seconds.

Both augers feature 3/8 inch thick super-edge flighting, which puts the most steel where the greatest wear occurs. The floor auger is also constructed with leaned double flighting for optimum cob- and grain-carrying capacity.

For ease in unloading, the Avalanche 1194CCM features a pivoting unloading auger with over five feet of hydraulically controlled height adjustability.

For more information, contact a Brent dealer or contact Unverferth at 800/322-6301 or visit them on the Web at www.unverferth.com.
