Would like to add a cart to the operation and use my JD8570 but it has no PTO and smaller capacity hydraulic pump. Can the hydraulics on these older tractors run a 12 inch cart auger or should I put a PTO in?
What type of grain cart and do you have twinflow on the T9.560 or just regular 55GPMish pump?I built my hydraulic kit for my graincart last summer and it turned out great. I can't remember what the hydraulic flow on my T9.560 is, but it ran the cart no problem. Unloads 900 bushels at 2/3s to 3/4s of PTO speed. I can make a **** of a mess already with that, I can't imagine how large of one I could make with a real PTO.
I bought a 2009 Elmer's/TorMaster(?) Haulmaster 888. I can't remember the size of the auger, but I think it might be only 16" but has a belly drag auger as well. I'm just using the regular pump. I wasn't even sure if its 55GPM. I feel like it might be less than that. I built the entire kit for $2500 with a namebrand pump. If the ebay seller had sent me the correct pump(they had the box mislabeled and sent me a pump with almost 2.5x the displacement) I would have built it for less than $1000.What type of grain cart and do you have twinflow on the T9.560 or just regular 55GPMish pump?
We have an Elmer's with PTO but honestly never max it out. Would be neat if PTO wasn't necessary because every tractor made lately has 55GPM hydraulics.
