What are you guys using for grain carts with your swivel augers, we have a r65 with an older a&l 505 and want a 750 bu or bigger cart. From measurements there is very little margin for error and when and auger and tube for 14" runs around $3000 I would like to know how people get away with it. We want a corner auger and really don't want to go with a bottom cross auger, just more things to replace later.
We are looking at Parker, Kilbros, Brandt and Demco. They all appear to have about same height and maybe some could tell me which is better.
The extension on unloader could be an option but not always does the grain bin get clean out. And I don't really want that extra 3ft behind the combine.
Does the long spout at end of auger help? It sure looks ugly.
The swivel is the best until there is no clearance between cart.
We have hit the cart with the 505 so chances are very good it will happen more with taller cart

All the advantages of the swivel auger are quickly overshadowed if you have issues unloading on the go.
There always seems to be a compromise.

Also if your ground is not flat it's real easy to take out a unloading auger real quick ! Happened last season with a new guy running the cart ..uhhh..maybe it was the combine operaters fault too
I have a Parker 670 cart with a R62 .Lucky that we have a good salvage yard nearby and got a replacement pretty cheap. We pay close attention now unloading thats for sure !!

we use kinze carts with our swivel augers , never have any problems , but most all is flat ground. to give you a little more on the end of auger we use the longer end spout ? gives us about 3 extra feet away from carts. done this for I didnt want to extend my swivel tubes.

Any cart can easily be unloaded to with a swivel auger. But yes you probably will have to pay a little more attention with clearance at times unless all your ground is flat. But that doesn't mean a turret auger won't ever hit. We've done it. And we're back to a swivel auger now, but being careful and pulling away from the combine when a rough or uneven spot is coming up works out just fine.

We have a R75 with the extra long auger and the large spout on the end which helps a bunch also. We only have a J & M 525 in which height is not a real problem, just a small area to fill it seems sometimes especially with the end caps on it for the roll tarp. The extension alone on the 75 made a world of difference compared to our standard length we had on the ole R62. Yes , paying attention to the terrain is the key to unloading safely on the go.
