Looking at purchasing my first grain cart this fall. Have looked at the J+M, Parker, Unverferth and Demco in the 1000 bushel range. What are the differences between any of these brands and are there any brands a guy should stay away from. From what I could see all these carts run one corner auger. Any other brands I should be looking at? In what order would you rank these?
Have no big tractor with PTO to pull it so am thinking of pulling it with my Quad this year with a hydraulic kit. Quad has 2 hydraulic pumps with over 100 gpm. What kind of bushels do you think this could produce with hydraulics? TIA

We run a brent 1082 with a quad. Works really well, nice carts for the $ spent, they handle 30tonne really well. Bit too tall but follow the tractor really good, unload time with hydraulics is quick enough my guess would be 7min for a cart full? Will keep up with 4 combines in 40bu canola fairly easy provided you have your best operator and thinker in it!

Your first cart and right away a 1000 bushels I wonder how you got by before
But ya I'd get a j&m but not with the extending auger apparently it leaks. I like the spout that is adjustable it's so handy

Local dealer has been setting up more and more carts with hydraulic unload. Hydraulic kit for a grain cart is cheaper than a PTO kit for some of these large 4wd's. Plus, if you have tractor problems, you can use (almost) any tractor.

Our cart is PTO though, so I have no direct experience.....just salesman-speak...whatever that's worth!

Tried our new Brent 1082 out today cleaning out our last couple durum bin bottoms. 5 minutes to unload 66000lbs with the 2 SCV hyd kit, which is fast enough for our farm. I appreciated the extra details this Brent has over the Unverferth 8250 we had before.

Kinda off topic but I just bought a new 1082 Brent and I got them to put on Uharvest, anybody have used it before pros and cons.
I had a 875J&M before this one with the slider auger and it never leaked but may I just had a good one

I'm running a couple of Tr 98's and I am wondering if height could be a problem with these combines. Most of these carts in the 1000 bushel range are 11'-6".
Sound like with a hydro kit auger capacity will be about 200 bushel's a minute, anybody expirence more capacity than this, has any body try the triple hydraulic kit?

We have a J&M 1000 with the slider, its been updated but still leaks canola. Would be getting a straight auger next time. Had a TJ500 on it with a hydro kit, worked fine, little slow but only 1 combine so no big deal for us. Have a tractor with pto now but haven't got to try it yet. I haul grain for a guy with a Demco and he says its horrible for cleaning out between varieties or fields. Won't use it around the yard unless no other choice because its such a pain.

Have a hydraulic kit on a 1150 J&M using 2 sets hydraulics. Takes 6 mins to unload 1000 bus on a semi.

The garbage goodyear tires that it came with are ready for the dump. Beads are pulling away from the tire and leaking. Will have to replace them soon, before a blowout and a big wreck happens.

If considering going hydraulics with that tractor, I don't think you can use both pumps. Each pump is rated for different flows and pressures. I have the New Holland version of that tractor and have the 2 pumps as well. I am running 2 sets of hydraulics off the main pump only. Works good. Will give you about 1/2 the flow that a PTO would but still a fair unload speed.

Had planned on using one set of hydraulic from each pump, might have to rethink :confused: this if that's true. I assume the main pump would be running the remotes on the left side.
