Grain Cart

I am considering retiring a couple of my 400 bushel grain trucks and replacing them with a semi and trailer as well as a mid-sized grain cart.  My question is, how do I determine the size of cart that my tractor will handle.  I will be using a CIH 7140 non FWA in front of it.  I've noticed that there is quite a price variance among good condition used carts on the market.  What are some points of interest to look out for as well as which brands have a decent track record.  The cart will be supporting 1 CIH 2388, and I will be harvesting approximately 500-600 acres annually, mostly wheat and grain sorghum.
