Front Fold Auger
The Patented Front-Folding Corner Auger Design:
1.) Allows the auger to be positioned in the corner of the grain tank
2.) Extends toward the tractor cab for a closer, clearer view during folding and unloading
3.) Folds along the front of the cart for easy, visible storage
No other grain cart on the market today can provide all three features! These features provide 100% visibility of the auger during unloading, and equally important 100% visibility of the auger during the folding sequence.
Some brands try to imitate our design by locating their auger in the corner and folding it along the front of the cart, but these augers only extend toward the semi-trailer and not toward the tractor cab, reducing visibility during unloading.
Others try to imitate our design by locating their auger near the corner and folding the upper auger rearward along the side. The upper auger does not extend nearly as far toward the tractor cab, creating less than 100% visibility. In addition, an upper auger indicator mounted on the front of the cart is required to let the operator know when the auger is in the transport position during the folding sequence.
Most competitors use words such as “Corner” or “Corner-like” and “100% Visibility” to imitate our design…even if the auger is not in the corner and an upper auger indicator is required.
In addition, since our patented design folds the auger along the front, valuable storage space is not eliminated from the tank to store the upper auger. The upper auger also swings away from the semi-trailer, eliminating any chance of collision between the upper auger and the semi-trailer.
The front-folding design stores the upper auger along the front of the cart, making it highly visible and eliminating any chance of damage during transport. Many side-folding auger carts have the upper auger extend beyond the rear of the cart when in the transport position. This significantly increases your chance of damaging the upper auger during transport and storage.
