Stopping Grain Loss From Cart Augers
We fold the auger down on our grain cart after each dump so we wont hit a tree limb or power pole while driving back to the combine. The problem is that every time we lay the auger down, we lose some grain on the ground. So after loading several trucks in the same place, you have a mess of wasted grain on the ground afterwards, says Max Robinson, Marysville, Ohio.
  To solve the problem, I took the boot off an old grain bin and made brackets to mount it under the auger on the cart. A piece of 4-in. drain tile runs down under the boot. Grain is held in the length of tile until its full. In a day of harvesting I often catch 4 to 6 gal. of corn in a pail.
