Avalanche 96-Series Dual Auger Grain Carts

Brent Avalanche® dual-auger grain carts have set powerful standards for unloading speed, convenience, capacity and durability since 1998.  That record of commitment continues with the 96 series.  In addition to the industry's first pivoting unloading auger, the 96 series adds greater unloading convenience with a bi-directional downspout and increased operator comfort with a rubber-cushioned tongue suspension.  Operator convenience, industry-leading unloading speeds, large carrying capacities and unmatched durability make the Avalanche® grain cart the right choice for your operation.  When you're ready for the best, you're ready for a Brent Avalanche dual-auger grain cart.

    Your complete ISOBUS grain cart scale and harvest data solution!  By utilizing ISOBUS technology, the user can operate the UHarvest® Pro grain cart scale and data management system on the virtual terminal display in the tractor, eliminating the need for batteries and extra monitors in the cab.  Simply plug into the ISOBUS port and you’re ready to go!  With a free subscription to Slingshot® reporting, you have a complete data management solution that seamlessly integrates with most crop insurance requirements.  Need to send your data to the cloud?  Simply connect your mobile device with cellular data to the Bluetooth signal and open the free UHarvest Pro app to make it happen!

    Standard Features

    • The UHarvest Pro grain cart scale and data management system works on any ISOBUS Virtual Terminal display. The easy-to-use platform permits easy setup and operation directly from a monitor that you already have in the tractor cab.  No need for additional monitors, cabling or batteries!
    • The harvest data structure allows you to track each load using a grower, farm and field structure as well as truck, destination and crop variety for complete harvest data reporting.
    • Easily add up to 5 custom crop types along with the included crop types. Plus, with UHarvest Pro, you can setup truck and bin capacities to help monitor your harvest production and storage requirements.
    • Accu-Save automatically records loads using the proximity sensor mounted on the driveshaft of the grain cart for the most accurate and complete harvest record keeping possible.
    • Hitch weight management feature allows the operator to maintain optimum tractor and cart control by keeping the grain load evenly distributed.  This feature not only monitors grain and total cart weight, it also shows real-time hitch weight and a color gauge to avoid overloading the hitch during loading.
    • Use the Combine Verify screen to easily calibrate the combine yield monitor with one touch. This calibration event is saved in the UHarvest Pro system once the verification process is completed.
    • Slingshot cloud reporting is included with every purchase of the UHarvest Pro grain cart scale system.  Slingshot is a secure, first-of-its-kind, web-based system that lets you send, store and share your harvest data.  Using the free UHarvest Pro mobile app, you can easily send files from the field on a mobile device with cellular connection to your Slingshot account.
    • The free UHarvest Pro mobile app allows you to send your harvest data to Slingshot directly from the field.  Once you have connected your mobile device to the Bluetooth connection provided by the GCM, launch the app and you're ready to go.  Upload once a day or once a season. It's easy to use and completely up to you! (available on IOS and Android devices).

    Optional Features

    • The optional Accu-Load technology provides quick and easy loading of trucks by closing the grain cart’s flow gate when the desired weight is unloaded.  After you’ve installed the HCV (hydraulic control valve) on the cart, simply push the “Auto” button for precise weight unloading.  Each truck weight is matched to the truck name for easier operation.  The operator can then focus on topping off each truck and proper grain placement.
    • Want to easily send a report to your crop insurance agent that includes the actual dry bushel count? Consider it done with the optional Moisture Sense system. It measures grain moisture as it leaves the cart and averages the content of each load, then converts all grain unloaded to standard dry bushels for the ultimate in harvest record keeping.
