After listening to requests from dealers, Brandt Agriculture introduced its first grain cart at the 2010 Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa.

The 1020XR has a capacity of more than 1,000 bushels, a corner auger and 24 inches of additional horizontal reach and 24 inches of vertical clearance for easier unloading, along with a 500-bushel-per-minute unloading speed.

The 1020XR also has a clean inner design with fewer catch points, which is desired by customers that alternate between crops, says Jason Bouchard of Brandt.

“Dealers said they would buy it from us, so we talked with a lot of customers and dealers and came up with this design,” he says. “We’re hoping this will take off.”
