Self-Propelled Grain Hauling Cart
First on the market with a self-propelled, 4-wheel drive grain cart is Mud Hog, Inc., of Brookston, Ind. They've introduced two models, with 400 and 600 bu. capacities.
An International 185 hp. engine supplies power to the hydrostatic drive system. All four wheels are steerable to provide maneuverability and a short turn radius. Three speed ranges are available and top speed is 20 mph.
Dave Anderson, Mud Hog's marketing manager, says the new Grain Hog carts can unload up to 600 bu. through the 14-in. unloading auger in just under 4 minutes.
"The Grain Hog is primarily designed for use in rice country where you need something that can go into muddy fields to pick up grain from the combine and get it back out to the road again," Anderson notes. "We think it will also work well for corn or grain farmers who operate several combines, or for custom combine operators."
The Grain Hog cab can be customized with air, heater, stereo or most other options. A rear-end hitch is being developed for pulling an extra "grain pup" behind the Grain Hog, Anderson notes. Price is about $50,000.
