GENERAL INFORMATION

High capacity with high clearance keeps your planter and or side-dress operation running longer, the perfect answer for bigger, faster farming operation. The name of the game is to cover more acres each day and that is exactly what the 2000 Series All Steer High Capacity Cart accomplishes. What makes the All Steer High Capacity Cart unique is its tiretracking feature where the rear tires track the front tires at all times resulting in less compaction or less downed crops. All Steer carts are a multi-use high capacity tool for many applications such as starter fertilizer, pre-plant fertilizer, sidedressing herbicides and insecticides. Tank capacities of up to 1600 gallons stretch out the time between refills helping to eliminate non-productive down time.

Incorporating a 2000 Series All Steer High Capacity Cart into your farming operation sets the stage to capitalize on maximum yield potential. Field tests have shown the sooner the seed is planted in the optimum planting window the greater the opportunity is to maximize yield potential. In addition, research has proven yield gain can also be made with timely side dressing application of fertilizer.

Reliability and durability are built into each All Steer for years of dependable service. 2” x 8” structured steel tubing is the foundation for the tank saddle providing for an extra strong mounting platform that evenly distributes stress loads on the tank. When it comes to carrying the load, strength is at the center of the design parameters for the All Steer High Capacity Cart. Heavy-duty 8 bolt hubs, 2 ¾” spindles, durable tires and rims are the backbone of the axle assembly. Each axle is connected to the tank saddle by a greaseable 5th wheel mechanism, which allows for steerage of both axle assemblies. In addition for a smoother ride the front axle has a unique feature of being able to pivot horizontally. Wide stance mounting lugs are welded to the front axle for mounting the telescoping pull hitch for a consistent equal pull. The telescoping hitch features speed hook-ups, which gets you up and going faster. Ground clearance is abundant, especially for side dressing. Up to a generous 27” is available depending on the tire selection.

BOLT TORQUE

READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST:

1.Improperly tightened bolts will result in damage, breakage, expense, and down time.

4.The chart below is a guide for proper torque. Use it unless a specified torque is called out elsewhere in the manual.
