Reproduction Hoods For Antique Deere Tractors
I built my own 350 bu. grain cart using the front wheels and axles off an old Case combine. The box is made from 12-ga. sheet metal and is equipped with a pto-driven, 12-in. dia. auger. I bought the gearbox and pto shaft for the auger cheap at an auction. I made the hitch quite long to make it easier for my Deere 4020 tractor to pull the wagon. However, next time I'd make the hitch shorter in order to put more tongue weight on the tractor. The auger is folded hydraulically by a cylinder that operates off the tractor hydraulics. A hydraulically-operated flow gate inside the wagon shuts off the grain supply to the auger. (Dave Geyer, 1251 Rohret Rd. S.W., Oxford, Iowa 52322 ph 319 628-4257).
