Grain Cart Doubles as a Manure SpreaderFast of its kind hydraulic dump wagon hauls either manure (3,800 gal.) or grain (450 bu.).
To haul manure four hatches install at the top of the wagon. They let you pump in manure but keep it from sloshing out the sides during transport. Two sloped baffles inside the rig also help reduce spillage. Manure is then spread on the field either through a 10-ft long gravity bar or pumped out hydraulically.
To haul grain with the wagon, you re-move the top hatches so you can auger in the crop. Grain empties out the wagon through a grain chute at the back. The wagon bed lifts hydraulically and bed does have an 18-in. slope front to back.
The 14-ft. long, 71/2-ft. wide wagon has dual axles fitted with dual wheels, and it requires a 140 hp. tractor. It's equipped with spring suspension, hydraulic brakes and a unique feature that helps pull through muddy fields. If the tractor gets into a rut, the wagon hitch extends out 3 1/2 ft., enough to get the tractor up on solid ground again.
