Crustbuster/Speed King go Big for Grain Hauling

New 1,325-bushel grain cart is a super-sized harvest helper.

Published on: Jun 21, 2013

Crustbuster/Speed King Inc. is rolling out a new 1,325-bushel-capacity grain cart that promises faster unloading to help with harvest. The machine features a 22-inch computer-balanced auger with 5/16-inch flighting and an unloading speed that is 50% faster than smaller grain carts with an 18-inch, or smaller, auger. The 1325 has a standard adjustable spout to allow enhanced control at unloading, and it features a standard tandem axle designed for 30-inch row spacing for enhanced stability.

The cart is supported by 10-inch-by-6-inch heavy main frame steel tubing and has a narrow 12-inch width design for easier road transport. Tire size is R1 120ply 520/85R38. And the empty weight for the cart is 17,000-pounds with a discharge height of 14-feet, 5-inches. The company also offers grain cart models in 850- and 1075-bushel capacities. All models come in either red or green paint.

GRAIN MOVER: With its big balanced auger, and heavy duty design, the Crustbuster/Speed King 1325 is ready to haul a lot of grain.
