World's Biggest Grain Cart?
Bourgault's prototype cart was unveiled at the recent Western Canada Farm Progress Show in Regina, Sask. At 1,100 bu. capacity, it surpasses the biggest previous grain cart built by J&M Co., by 25 bu. (Vol. 20, No. 2).
The new cart features an 18-in. dia., 15 ft. long turret auger that unloads 350 bu. per minute to either side. It rides on eight 21.5 by 16.1-in. implement tires. and has the lowest hopper height (10 ft.) for its size of any cart in the industry, says Kosokowsky. Two 18 by 16-in. mesh windows on each end - upper and lower - also help provide improved rear visibility when the cart's empty. Its wide, 13-ft. stance provides improved stability.
Price of the 1100, which is expected to be in full production in 1997, will be announed this fall.
