You know I hear that to but we have used ours now for 7 or 8 harvest and bought at a auction and has been a awesome cart all we have ever done is grease it and that is it still

I would highly consider Elmers. Not sure of your location but the exchange rate can help.

I would only consider an Elmer's myself. Had one since 2011 and the most recent one for three years. Basically trouble free the entire time, one of the most reliable pieces of equipment on the farm. They have a hydraulic accumulator to maintain track tension and pressure is adjusted from the gate circuit with a pressure gauge on front of the unit, if something is wrong with mud and tension you will know but we haven't seen that. Had two Brent's prior and they were far from trouble free.

The people I harvest with have a 1600 Elmers (red) I believe they can be a 2000?
When that size the combine side is as high as the opposite side is on a 1600 I’ve been told? And the left side would be equally higher?
I’ve occassionly unloaded on the high side, I still could if it was higher yet. Auger camera equipped helps.
The advantage I see to a 2000 is it would hold a Super B by volume would it not?
Doesn’t matter in peas or wheat but canola can be pretty fluffy density wise.

You are pretty much correct Don. The cart in my picture is a 1600, but I used to have 2000's. Using triaxle trailers here mostly, so the 1600 is big enough to heap a triaxle trailer without needing to heap the cart(like in the picture). The 1600 size allows more breathing room when operating in uneven terrain which I like. 2000 would allow a legal canola super-b load but not likely a "harvest load", and the cart would have to be heaped.

No problem getting at the 1600 from any angle.

Iíd scrape a few more pennies together and get the new tracks. Not sure what year they started but maybe 14-15.

Way heavier all around built.
I have a Brent 2096 I think its a 2013 model, I have zero issues with the tracks. Brent sent me the spindle update, its still sitting in the pallet.

Probably have a human operator running it. I wonder if that wasn’t a heavier undercarriage anyways over a 1300 not just longer.


I fixed ours though with the trade it off wrench:
Guess we’ll see how we like the right hand dump. I’m sold just phantom dumping it in the yard!

Elmer’s is nice, built a little light for my liking. Too tall for John Deere augers.

. New Elmer’s 2000bu cart is same height as old 1600bu. I believe 12-8in. I believe everyone else is at least a foot taller then that
