20 years ago, when Rob Fagnou started as marketing specialist with Bourgault Industries, he wondered who would even need the company’s latest 225 bushel air cart. This year, at Canada’s Farm Progress Show, the company unveiled a 1300 bushel cart as a compliment to its 100-foot-wide air drill.
As Fagnou explains in the video below, this latest in the 7000 series offers many of the same features as past models but with larger compartments and a few key options to service these huge volumes, adding efficiency once these huge units hit the field.

From how you can configure the five compartments, to the addition of an optional saddle tank for canola, inoculants or other low-volume inputs, Fagnou runs through the features on this latest model. Complete with bulk boom option, he explains the ways and means farmers can keep this cart running at max capacity to get those acres done.
Complete with auto section control, Fagnou also explains how the metering system works, how the cart manages flipping on and off without compromising the running lines, and why you can fill this beast in the same time as the 950 bushel option (hint: thanks to a 20″ belt in 12″ tube).
From there, Fagnou talks flotation, tire and track option, transport widths (18’3″ to just over 21′) and more with RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney. Check it out and tell us what you think!
