Has anyone ever converted a Flexicoil 2320 air cart mechanical drive to electric or hydraulic drive? If so how did you do it and where did you get the parts? I am very interested in doing this. TIA
Do you have a link for these products? Looks very interesting.Cool the pro 700 could be used without any issue.... would use ravens new ISO multi prouduct control node.... may as well use there valves and shaft encoder setups as well ...... tee In your hydraulics ..... break out the gas axe and get rid of the old ground drive stuff ..... followed by the hot glue gun and mount the new drives.... new node comes with magnetic mounts so that parts easy enough.... attach wires and hyd ... plug into ISO hitch plug on tractor,and you will be able to view it in the VT or isobus screen on the pro 700 for setup and cal.... the node can Handel 4 products so even if u had a 3 compartment tank no worries ...
could even pull liquid or nh3
Also with a task controller unlock on pro700 would do VR as well..
That would be great. It's a 2 compartment tank.Shaft sensors should not matter to much I wouldn't think beacase as u would get off rate alarms.... would probably be somewhere in there to view some sort of rpm as it is .... fan speed probably a work around as well may have to replace the sensors with a raven one .... be a bit of cost involved but your cart would be good as good as new
If I get a chance tomorrow I'll look a little deeper into it if u want.....
How many compartment tank?
Heya I dug up buncha info on the conversion we were chatting about... fired off few quick questions to raven just to make sure it's all good... waiting to here back .... but looks like it's a doable feat for sure..... few kinks to work out ..... hydro motors for the drives.... just need to source correct fit.... as the Omniseed ones they used in previous posts won't work for this application....That would be great. It's a 2 compartment tank.
Will use electronic Pwm valves to open flow to hydraulic motors....Not aware of any electrical ISO motors that will fit this application... but sure would be open to ideas! As this kinda conversion will be definitely become more common as there displays die, VR comes more common practice and as the technology becomes more available....Why hydraulic drive and not electric?
I had reached out to a company not too long ago regarding their ag electric drive motors. When I'm at an actual computer I'll try find their name and post it.Will use electronic Pwm valves to open flow to hydraulic motors....Not aware of any electrical ISO motors that will fit this application... but sure would be open to ideas!

Just think what farm or equipment dealership doesn't have a couple old tanks kicking around back that is ground drive ... that could be as good as a brand new one as far as vr capable... switch it into a fert speader and one time across the farm and she's paid for itself 3 times over based on custom ap rates I've seen around here...
This is exactly what we did. It works perfectly. We run agleader and pwm valve from northern tool.I have a 2320 cart ready to convert I have the own and pump. I just did a 1910 which was simple. This 2320 roller set up doesn’t have a sprocket on the roller to drive from. It’s got the steel tube that goes into the shaft of the roller with a key or bolt to drive the roller. Was wondering if anyone has done a 2320 and if they just extended the original shaft of the roller out and got a sprocket on it or how anyone got hooked up to the hyd motor.
A few years ago I replaced all the shaft and fan sensors with a simple blockage monitor with 1 on each head.Velocity also would go unfortunately...... if a guy poked around may come up with velocity tie in somehow .... or IntelligentAg ag blockage would give velocity back in there system
