Parma Combo Box

The Parma multi-use combo box is a heavy-duty manure spreader that can be simply converted to forage or bulk box for year-round usage by removing the rear attachment and adding different side extension kits for silage, sugarbeets or other commodities.

Three different spreader attachments are available: the horizontal beater, the compost and manure spinner unit or the vertical beater spinner. These boxes are available in truck-mounted pull-type trailer or pull-type semi-trailer configurations ranging from 16 to 30 feet.

Strong Box Live Bottoms

Strong Box live-bottom belted trailers and bulk beds allow operators to have versatility across many crops by allowing you to unload quickly and gently. Unlike an end-dump, drivers are able to control unload rate and have greater stability by keeping a low center of gravity, even on sloped ground. Wet materials such as lime and manure that are known to stick to end-dump walls and cause rollover accidents can easily be hauled.

Strong Box’s powerful, positive chain-drive belted floor ensures no slippage, providing a fast unload rate that is smooth and gentle. Enclosed side walls provide great aerodynamics and a clean look. The trailer also provides flex where operators want it and strength where they need it.

Options include 30-, 36- and 50-inch belt widths, multiple axles, gas-powered hydraulic units, multiple rear door options for numerous crops, and various overall lengths and side wall heights.

Crop Shuttle

The Crop Shuttle is the largest, fastest and most versatile crop cart out on the market. Customers can choose from 36-, 46- and 56-ton capacities and discharge speeds up to 25 tons per minute. New for 2019 are multiple cleaning bed options that allow operators to remove tare from a crop and leave more dirt in the field. The Crop Shuttle is versatile and customizable, allowing it to be used in multiple crops such as sugarbeets, potatoes, carrots, onions, red beets, cucumbers and even corn silage.

The Crop Shuttle is designed so that there is no need for a PTO to power the hydraulics. Its patented design has minimal moving parts and changing angles, meaning less buildup of debris while using less hydraulic power. The hopper rises into the air while unloading, creating the incline needed without a separate conveyor slowing down discharge and damaging the crop.

The attachments include a compost/fertilizer spreader, seed loader, grain auger, potato boom and sugarbeet boom. The Crop Cart has the capacity to hold 35 tons. Using a Crop Cart will reduce an operation’s need to have trucks in the field to keep planting, harvesting and transporting productively. The Crop Cart is adaptable to increase farm efficiency and profitability.

 Amity Sugarbeet Cart

The sugarbeet cart from Amity Technology fits any operation and unlocks profit potential. Capable of unloading up to 30 tons per minute, the Amity sugarbeet cart with a 35-ton capacity will keep harvesters running at maximum capacity and quickly turn trucks to get them back on the road, no matter the field conditions.

Big Bear

 The Big Bear sugarbeet cart is a quick way to transport beets from the harvester to the truck or clamp. Both 35- and 40-ton models ensure quick unloading by hydraulically driven conveyors to the center conveyor, keeping a balanced load at all times. Track undercarriage keeps compaction at a minimum and allows harvest of beets even in adverse conditions. A scrub roller provides cleaning action as beets pass from the center floor to the truck conveyor. Operators can select left- or right-hand unload with or without a hydraulic lift.

Art’s Way Manufacturing Co.

(712) 864-3131

9016-BT High Dump Cart

The 9016-BT’s wheel base is set so the tires can run through the field without damaging unlifted beets. The 15-inch wide tandem tires can be set to run in 22-, 24- or 30-inch rows. The cart features a 20-ton capacity and can be easily set to dump to the left or right side. When combined, these features allow the 9016-BT to be pulled alongside the harvester when opening and dump back to the left when full. This allows the harvester to run at closer to a continuous pace, greatly reducing the amount of lost time.
