New 96 Series Avalanche Grain Carts
Brent is rolling out three new grain carts to complete the line of 96 Series Avalanche grain carts. In addition to the 2,000-bushel capacity 2096 introduced in 2011, the 1596 (1,500 bushels), 1396 (1,300 bushels), and 1196 (1,100 bushels) are now available.
The Avalanche carts feature a new multi-directional downspout for optimum grain placement control. The pistol-grip control for the 1396 and 1196 allows operators to easily adjust the auger height. The five-function control for the 2096 and 1596 includes auger-pivot and flow-door controls to minimize hydraulic outlet requirements.
The pivoting auger provides more than 5 feet of hydraulically controlled height adjustability, from 10’5” to 16’6”, and extendable reach, up to 8’11” from the cart. Synchronized upper and lower vertical auger flighting keeps grain flowing smoothly and evenly for faster unloading.
The Avalanche grain cart’s drivetrain combines a belt-driven 20-inch diameter floor auger with a heavy-duty, direct-drive 90-degree gearbox for the 24-inch or 22-inch diameter vertical auger. The new carts boast an unloading speed of up to 1,000 bushels per minute.
Brent Avalanche grain carts can be equipped with a variety of undercarriage choices. Steerable tandem axles on models 2096 and 1596 turn in unison with the tractor for enhanced maneuverability. The oscillating design keeps all four wheels on the ground to keep the weight spread evenly for increased flotation. Other undercarriage options include walking-tandem duals with 30-inch or 36-inch row spacings, rubber-cleated tracks with hydraulic cushioning, pivoting steel idler wheels, and a 36-inch wide belt for less berming while turning.
Prices for the new grain carts start at $80,995.
