I dont know would they arrange delivery. We do know plenty of lads with trucks that would go down and get it but they're looking for at least 600 euro to do it. Probably would cost half that on diesel in the tractor I suppose.

Of course, any self respecting dealer will deliver, they’ll have to cover their costs in the sale of the machine, but thats what you are paying for.

€600 isn’t dear when its probably going to take the full day for a man in a tractor to do the round trip. Not to mention the €300 in diesel.

McCartneys in Kells would be better value than that provided he was in the area/backloading.

Easy Fella, Sure wouldnt there be a difference of over an hour going from enfield or up near the cavan border?
Up near the cavan border. From nobber more specifically, could get the tractor left in ballbrigan or stamullen tommorow and catch a lift up with the father but I dont know would that really make things any quicker, might have to go moving pipes tommorow anyway with it either so it's looking like nobber for now.

You'd be doing very well to do it in 4, Closer to 5 I'd say

Might see could a deal be struck with farrelly too. I'm sure something can be figured out, have plenty of good suggestions now. Just a matter to see does the trailer click with yourman.

Well did ye crack open the cheque book?
I have no clue did yourman go to see it yet at all. Stuck here trying to fine tune the foot throttle on the 1135. She's just not reving out. The deeper I do go into the more problems I'm finding, wires taped up left right and centre.🙈

Got an update finally. He was too busy today doing footpaths to go look at it so he's going first thing tommorow morning. Still fairly dead set on bringing the tractor, but I suggested the idea of seeing could delivery be included in the deal.

yourman went to look at the hogg today and the deal was nearly done but at last minute a problem was spotted. The oversize wheels make a great job of the dirt ground but you wouldn't fit your finger between the tyre and mudgaurd, tried lifting it up and it got closer again. He done some more digging and is buying a a 20 tonne broughan from Kilkenny. It's set to arrive Monday evening
