We bought a cart a few years ago when it was wet and didn’t want trucks in the field, now we use the cart all the time. Unloading on the go gains us about 30 percent more acres every day. Having Libra on the cart we know how many tonnes we harvest off each field and helps us calibrate our combines.

Plan is to get a cart, even though I will have to drive it and the truck myself (I know, I'm good right!!!). Not looking for new by any means, but looking around on a few sites to see what is out there. My lord man!!!!! The prices on these new ones! Getting close to the 200,000 mark! Knock a zero or two off that, now that's what we're shooting for! Not really looking for advice or suggestions, have a few in our sights, but willing to hear the good and bad out there. Just couldn't believe the prices! Not sure why I was so shocked, nothing is really "cheap" any more.

There is only two of us here as well, we had a cart and sold it. 2 combines so its just easier to dump in semis rather then to cart and then to semi anyway. Just my $0.02. Plus with strippers, driving thru the field is a no no.

Just a FYI if you have a properly calibrated scale on cart, and put everything through it, lots of insurance companies will use that info instead of measuring bins.

I don’t know. Because I have a truck scale and crop insurance would not recognize the wights. So they Measured the bins. But if some one else weighed the grain they would take that. But not yours. Go figure.

So might be going to look at a J+M 750-14 tomorrow. It has a pto on it, but the front wheel assist 110 horse might be too small for it. The dealer said they are easily converted to run with hydraulic. Our 4 wheel drive is a 9680 Ford New Holland, which is on the low side for hydraulic flow to run the cart, it will run it he says, just not as fast. To my understanding, if they put the hydraulic kit on it, you can switch back and forth fairly easily, is that correct? What do you guys think? Is there any things with these carts that give problems? Sounds like it's in good shape.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

we have a J&M, love the cart, no problems since we owned since new (2008). Just don't release too much horsepower on the cart as they we're really build to be dragged around by 350+ horses i think. Ya you can swap from hydraulic to pto easily, we run ours pto so much nicer and faster than hydraulic.
I think a 110 horsepower FWA can run a 750 no problem just don't go into water with a full load.
