That’s what I thought when I first read it, but I think they were actually saying that the axles they were off of a 200000 lb loader. So I guess that they can be potentially up to that.Wonder what it will cost to build these days? million $ tractor coming right up. Likely well over that. I think I read they plan them being 200,000lbs. Pull more than the 747?
I have always wondered if you had an electric drive tractor that you might be able to have a powered axle on an air cart. I imagine a fully loaded 1300 bu cart would probably weigh in over 60000lbs, say 2/3rds that is on the air cart axle, and with big buds math of 100lbs a hp you could be looking 400hp or so extra. Not really sure how this would actually pan out, you would potentially run into issues with the cart almost empty but most guys run half the year with over half a tank. Or you may have problems with having high voltage auxiliary connectors being handled by farmers. Just an idea.If he's going to go with mining components, maybe an electric drive would be ideal. Generator and motors would be heavy, but weight is important for that much horsepower. Drive train would last forever.
It would have to be dry 100% of the time to pull 120’. If it’s wet in my ground 60’ with 750 bushel tank will bring a 620 to its knee's. But yeah the industry is getting there very soon.120’ drill with 1,300 bu tank is within reach if your tractor is 750-800 hp
Are those all empty weights? I never realized how heavy those things were without a load on. I guess if you filled them up you would be adding about ~50000lbs, depending on what it is loaded with.A Bourgault 7950 cart weighs 33 500 lbs
The 91300 cart weighs 50 500 lbs empty.
The 99750 weighs 42 800
