Grain Cart Has Built In Scale
"Some landlords are buying them, or paying half, for renters to use in dividing the crop at harvest," notes Russel Phelps, sales director. "With an acreage counter on your combine,and exact weighing of grain harvested, you can now get a complete, accurate picture of your total harvest."
The weather-proof scale, available on Brent's 320, 420, 620 and 820 grain carts, is accurate to within .5%, even with the cart standing on a sidehill. Weight of the load is displayed on the digital readout in 20-lb. increments. Options include a cab-mounted indicator and, in the near future, a printer which automatically records the weight of each load.
"The built-in weighing system is built rough and rugged, same as the cart itself. You don't have to baby the Weight Cart for fear of fouling up the scale mechanism," notes Phelps.
The scale adds about $2,200 (suggested retail) to the cost of Brent's 320 and 420 Weigh Carts, and about $2,990 to the larger 620 and 820 models.
