WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa (Feb. 15, 2012) – Kinze® Manufacturing, Inc. understands that time is valuable during harvest, and farmers need to move grain in the most productive manner possible. With efficiency in mind, Kinze introduces a new line of grain carts featuring an externally mounted, forward-angled corner auger. The dual-auger design provides maximum visibility and reach. The one-piece, horizontal auger moves grain quickly from back to front. The vertical corner auger can pivot up to 10 degrees and features an adjustable spout to allow for precise grain unloading and full visibility from the tractor cab. A hydraulically adjustable flowgate allows the operator to control unloading speed and optimize grain flow for various sizes and types of grain. All of the carts operations can easily be controlled from a cab mounted pilot control.
The new, larger carts will be available in the following bushel capacities: 900, 1100, 1300 and 1500. The larger capacities will allow for more efficient harvesting. The 1100, 1300 and 1500 models are equipped with a 22-inch vertical auger and a 20-inch horizontal auger to deliver unloading speeds up to 750 bushels per minute.
These new carts feature a wide variety of options for tires and tracks to reduce soil compaction. The 1100 and 1300 models feature giant 1100/45R46 compaction-reducing tires. The 900 model comes with 66x43-25 tires. A row crop tire option with dual 520/85R42 tires is available on the 1100 and 1300 models. A 36-inch wide tracked undercarriage is available on the 1100 and1300 models. The 1500 model comes with tracks.
All Kinze carts feature a durable powder coat finish and will be available for the 2012 harvest season.
Additional options include: electronic scale packages for quick and easy weights, an electric-roll tarp and a manual tarp to cover and uncover loads quickly and a dual camera option to monitor both the rear of the cart and the unloading auger.
