The Brandt Group of Companies (Brandt) is pleased to announce the addition of a new GrainCart series to their grain-handling lineup. The company’s new XT-Series carts make use of an updated tank design and new auger configuration.
“We’ve designed these carts from the ground up for ease of operation,” says Sheldon Gerspacher, Brandt vice-president of sales, dealer channel. “Harvest is a pressure-filled time and the last thing farmers need is a piece of equipment that doesn’t produce. The key is always to keep your combines moving and that is what the XT-Series is all about.”
The new carts employ a corner-mount auger design that delivers eight feet (ft.) or more of forward auger reach, 15+ ft. of side auger reach, and 13+ ft. of discharge spout clearance. The extra reach and clearance ensure clearer forward visibility from the tractor cab to the discharge spout, allowing operators to work more comfortably and be productive for longer periods during the hectic harvest season.
Brandt has also added a new low-profile modular tank design that eliminates common ledges and catch-points, ensuring faster, more thorough clean-out and minimizing crop switchover times. The new design also incorporates a ground-level access door for safe tank entry for maintenance.
Production of the new XT-Series GrainCarts commenced in May of this year and they have already begun shipping to dealers across Canada and the United States.
