An 8" (203 mm) diameter load/unload auger is standard on all air cart models. A larger 10" (254 mm) diameter auger is optional for models AC280 and AC400. Balanced for a one-man operation, the 8" auger will fill 315 bushels in 7 minutes.
Bottom / Top Auger Controls
All models feature both top and bottom auger controls as standard equipment. Spring-loaded controls automatically return to neutral position when not engaged and provides the operator with full Forward / Neutral / Reverse functions.
Augers feature an adjustable locking mechanism. This secures the auger to the air cart for transport. The additional safety strap is provided to secure the auger should the transport lock accidentally unlatch.
Auger Swing Lock
This lock prevents the auger from moving once it is placed into 1 of 3 positions. This feature is helpful when filling on sidehills or on days that are exceptionally windy.
