The brands Brent and Unverferth are both owned by Unverferth Manufacturing Company, Inc., which manufactures and markets a wide-variety of farming equipment including grain carts. Both Brent and Unverferth labels offer single-, dual-, and corner-auger options in various models.


When it comes to questions like “Is Brent better than Unverferth?,” “Are single-auger grain carts better than dual-auger grain carts?,” or “What is the best grain cart?,” there are lots of differing opinions.


  • “The actual machinery isn’t very different.”
  • “We’ve always had Brent carts so they’re the best.”
  • “Brent versus Unverferth? What about Kinze?”
  • “I started out with a single so that’s what I’m comfortable with.”
  • “We have clearance issues with our single auger.”
  • “We hate cleaning out our double auger.”
  • “You can’t beat the simplicity of a single auger.”
  • "Single auger carts are harder to fill.”
  • “Front-fold is essential.”
  • “No, side-fold is superior.”
  • “Corner augers are the only design worth considering.”
  • “Once you go double, you’ll never go back.”
  • “The main difference between Brent and Unverferth is the logo.”


You get the idea.


Depending on the specifics of your operation, some so-called pros and cons of the different brands and models might not apply to your situation while seemingly-minor differences in specs may actually make a big difference in your fields. There is also a lot of personal preference at play here.


Rather than comparing the brand names of Brent versus Unverferth, I personally tend to look more at the actual specs of available models to see what matches my needs in terms of bushel capacity, unloading speeds, overall length and width, etc.
