Travis Seed Carts Now Offered With Conveyors
For over 15 years, HitchDoc has been producing auger-style Travis Seed Carts, but now the company is shaking things up. HitchDoc customers wanted conveyor-style carts, and that’s exactly what they’re getting when they purchase the new bulk conveyor-style seed carts. Carts are available in 275 and 375 seed unit capacities.
“We wanted to design a cart that catered to end users’ requests,” says Chad Mohns, HitchDoc Manufacturing vice president. “The auger-style seed cart is great for some, while others have requested a conveyor.”
A hydraulic-control conveyor allows operators to wirelessly get the 7-foot telescoping downspout right where it needs to be by rotating the conveyor up to 180° and smoothly adjusting its height. These carts were designed for faster unloading, and a 40° gravity slope helps make cleanout much more efficient.
To keep seed safe and intact, the conveyor belts are cleated. Seed should get to exactly where its intended with operators using a full-control wireless remote. The remote gives operators complete access to every element of the seed cart operation including moving it, turning it on, and putting gates up and down.
“These carts are manufactured from premium American steel and constructed with the highest level of quality in mind,” says Mohns.
A 13-hp. Honda OHV electric-start engine powers the bulk seed carts. For easy maintenance, a self-contained hydraulic system comes standard on each model.
Because trailers are equipped with electric brakes, each is DOT-compliant. Operators can order the carts with bumper or gooseneck hitches, but a ready tow package comes standard. Rubber torsion axles provide a smoother ride and make for a strong trailer when facing tough terrain or wind.
Those purchasing the carts can choose to purchase features like a Digi-Star scale, a Talc Kit and Scale Head with auto-off, and patented Seed Pod technology that allows box to bulk cart conversion.
Growers can get the bulk conveyor carts in powder-coated black, green, or red. Pricing is dependent on the dealer.
