RODONO INDUSTRIES (ACX-Air Cart Xtend)

The ACX is a small retracting conveyor that places the ability to extend and swing at the end of your air seeder cart loading system. Many factory air seeder cart loading augers or conveyors do not reach under a hopper bottom trailer. The ACX easily extends under hopper bottom trailers to unload multiple hoppers without moving the truck. The product is available in a 15" belt or 10" auger version and is constructed from stainless steel. Kits are available for the JD 1910 Cart, Case 3445 and Bourgault 6550. The addition of 10 feet of travel to the air seeder loading system increases flexibility and decreases the time spent loading the air seeder so you can seed more per day. www.rodono.ca
