Elmerís cart right hand unload

Iím dealing on some Elmerís carts and to my surprise they make a right side unload.

Now call me tickled pink but does anyone have one of these and not like it?

We have an always folded rule anyways so thatís not an issue.

I canít stand turning my head to the left, just to many years of pull types so Iím looking forward to looking right when unloading!

No if combines would just unload on the right side, or both

Ours is to the right. Can’t understand why anyone would want it unloading to the left. Natural to turn to the right when in the seat. Controls are on the right. No brainer to me

. Because there's no time to fold cart auger when your trying to keep up to 3 or 4 Combines in high yield wheat or oats And sooner or later both the cart and combine auger will meet. The new elmers cart augers stand almost 18ft high when raised

Saw this at AIM last year, the sales pitch seemed reasonable.
Iíd have 100% confidence IF it had auto fold at sustained speed.

What time? We always fold on the move with timers on the remotes. Just bump them to fold in-out.

We always fold anyways due to a few close calls with them folded out.
rod and Transaxial like this.

Good luck with that cart lasting if your folding a 1000lb auger on the move. Hinges will not last with the twisting that will take place while your moving. It's built to fold while not moving and carts on tracks really shack when empty if ground is hard or rough

Plus a bit of grain spills every time you fold.

Also sometimes we end up pulled alongside the truck to dump cart and combine comes in and empties at the end of the field. If it's a RH dump it ends up being opposite direction of travel and more chance for confusion.

If looking left when dumping is the worst thing one has to endure then it's a pretty cushy job.

EDIT: We have a policy of auger in when entering a field until outside rounds are done, then auger out.

AN ERROR DOESN'T BECOME A MISTAKE UNTIL YOU REFUSE TO CORRECT IT

It's an absolute no brainer!
The first time I saw a RH discharge I thought: "what a prick of an idea" Not until you operate one do you realise the benefits ...... as you alluded to.
All people who have operated my bin ....... the first thing they gasp at is: "the auger is on the wrong side!"
Call them on the radio after half a day ......... "yeah, it's lots easier ...... great idea"

Big diameter augers should be folded down when traversing the paddock anyway.

Oh yeah, combines unloading either side ....... yep, that'll happen one day ........ when we want to pay for it!

Too bad it was a catastrophic mechanical disaster.
