Grain Cart Tractor

Been pulling our 1596 Brent cart with our 9620rx the last couple years. Donít really like houring them up in the cart. Plan to keep them for quit a while for seeding.
If we go to a wheeled tractor with 800ís, will we be disappointed with the width of the tractor? Or no big deal? Not sure I want to remove duals. Thinking around 450-500hp.
Tractor will also get used in spring for roller, disc etc.

We had 710’s on our 485 case and it was a little bit wider than the cart 900’s and pretty tight to the headder when unloading but you get used to it quickly. As long as you don’t have short augers on the combine you should be able to fill the middle of the cart.

Qt eliminated the stress of watching out for the headder. Not a necessity but definitely nicer to operate.

we pull a 1394 brent behind a 9230 chipped to 380 hp with 620 duals. Width is perfect for us as the cart is just a smidge wider than the tractor and the combine usually has a 45 ft head on it. We have enough hills where I like to have a little leeway. 800 duals should be fine though. neighbor runs 40 foot drapers on JD combines and their cart tractor has 800 duals. 45 foot header and 800 duals might be pushing it, but between angled spouts and auger extensions there are some things you can do on the combine side to get a few extra feet.

Also, how cozy does the tractor have to be to the trailer?

We should have good clearance along truck/trailer.

Xerion would be a good cart tractor. Probably out of price range and would like to stay with green.

We went from a Quadtrac to dual 710’s for our cart tractor and actually feel that lining up with the semi was actually easier but not as handy moving grain around the yard.

I had a quick demo in one at Ag in Motion a couple years ago. When using on cart, do you control speed with foot pedal all day ?

Run a Xerion 5000 on 2000 Elmers cart here as well. Usually set in foot pedal mode, but cruise as well. I usually back combine off by a touch and have cart guy lock cruise, positioning auger with combine. Saves me headaches, as I'm in the combine. Runs easy in foot pedal mode for inexperienced drivers.

710/75 Duals are about 1.5 feet wider than cart tracks. 40' okay, 45' too squeaky tight if trying to centre the auger with Lex780TT. Can be done, but accident will happen inevitably.

By far and away my best ever cart tractor.

When me and one of my employees demod it, we thought it might be a pain to run that foot pedal all day? Guess you would get used it?
