Cart expansion: John Deere will boost the capacity of its air seeder carts with the C850 series, available in Australia next year.

The current brood of 1910 air seeder carts provide a variety of options ranging from 8800 litres to 15,200 litres as tow-between configurations and 8800 litres to 19,400 litres as tow-behinds.

Next year’s C850 models will blow those capacities out of the water as the 850 stands for 850 bushels which equates to about 30,000 litres.

The C850s will feature two separate, high-capacity fans – one for seed, one for fertiliser – delivering product from four tanks, including an 1800 litre small seeds bin.

Standard fitment will be with a 40cm belt conveyor which can also be used to empty the bins.

Kondinin Group researchers have been looking at air commodity carts and the John Deere 1910 is one of 12 featured in this month’s Farming Ahead Research Report.
