Auger Wagons

From combine to truck and back again and again, auger wagons are an integral component in the harvest square dance. It’s been said that using auger wagons during harvest and unloading on the go can improve in-field efficiency by 30% to 50%.

Today’s auger wagons include more features and options than you might realize. Grain capacity ranges from 500 bu. to 2,000 bu. There’s a choice of one-, two- or three-axle chassis as well as single or dual tires and tracks. Larger tires and tracks also address flotation concerns. Most of the auger series even have choices when it comes to color.

High-tech scale packages can unload a specific amount of grain in order to keep trucks within transportation law limits as well as be programmed to automatically unload. Tracking grain through the harvest chain is crucial, so many auger wagons include scales with a USB drive to transfer data.

We’ve compiled a list of many (if not all) of the grain auger wagons sold in the U.S. For clarity, we are referring to this machinery segment as auger wagons, rather than grain carts or auger carts.

Although in some cases the 15 brands we highlight are more well known than their manufacturer, the auger wagons are listed alphabetically by manufacturer. In fact, there are two brands of Brandt wagons, one manufactured by Canadian company Brandt and a second by Arkansas-based Pitonyak.

Each series includes a price or price range, product description, notable attributes that differentiate it from other wagons on the market, and optional features. For more information about an auger wagon, contact the manufacturer.
