Machinery Journal: Move and Store More Bushels

To help make grain harvest, moving and storage easier, Brandt launches five new products: Grain Cart 1020 XR, Grain Bag Loader 2610, Grain Bag Unloader 8510, Transport Auger EZMove and the Auger Max Bin Sensor.

The Grain Cart 1020 XR has a 1,000-bu. capacity. The 20" auger features a 500-bu.-per-minute unloading rate. Brandt’s corner auger design provides an additional 24" of vertical clearance and 24" of horizontal reach. The elbow-style downspout features 105° of rotation. The wheel-operated cleanout door is easily closed and locked in place for a leak-free, positive seal. The cleanout door can also be locked open for pit dumping and cleanout.

The Grain Bag Loader 2610 loads 10' bags up to 300' long at a rate of 26,000 bu. per hour. The large, 8'x8' hopper can be loaded from either side or from both sides simultaneously. Combined with the 17" auger, it makes for even faster grain bag loading. The design requires 50 hp to 80 hp and can be loaded directly from combines, grain carts or trucks using the optional HP Truck Unloading Auger.

The Grain Bag Unloader 8510 features a 10"-diameter cross auger and 17" main discharge auger to unload 9' or 10' bags (requires 9' option) at a rate of 8,500 bu. per hour. The roller assembly’s weight is balanced and can be turned from transport to working position by hand. The 8510 features a 2" bag roller shaft and a spring-loaded clutch on the bag roller for easy bag removal, with no tools required. The bag roller is designed to accept 9'- and 10'-diameter grain bags and uses standard sprockets and spindles.

The Transport Auger EZMove is a universal auger mover that fits all of Brandt’s standard and supercharged augers. Universal mounts attach the unit directly to the undercarriage; no tube clamps are required. The Brandt mover provides on-the-go speed control, and the hydraulic steering requires less effort than manual steering.

The Auger Max Bin Sensor alerts you when the bin is full. The sensor features a wearable, wireless pager that beeps, vibrates and flashes when the grain pile has reached the auger outlet.

The module mounts easily at the auger outlet. The signal reaches about 100 yd. An optional light can be attached to illuminate the area below the auger spout.
