Probably wouldn’t be far of the price of an 18ft grain trailer but it would have the versatility. Local trailer dealer is ordering an 18 ton into stock for himself so might quiz him on a price.
Cheers, I tried my local lad but could be waiting to hear back, it would suit me as I only draw grain into the yard so don't need huge capacity and a dump trailer would be very useful. Do you know is it much of an ordeal to take on/off @gone

Anyone running a compact telehandler like this?
Not too bad a machine, rated to 2.4 tonne but they will only just lift this and will lift a wheel at 2.5 tonne, there's no leeway. a different machine to the 520 50, which is pretty bomb proof, not everyone likes how you have to climb over the wheel to get into a 520 50 though. the 527 isn't a bad machine. personally i think the 520 50 is the better design but you'd do well to find one with a 1100 hours on it like that one has.

A great bit of info there. Thanks. I couldn't be expecting the aul lad to be getting in and out of a 520 50. That would be the main turn off for me personally.

Know a man who ordered a grain trailer 3 weeks ago and it was canceled because they couldn’t give him a price until the end of this year.

If he wanted a grain trailer would he not have waited till he got a price. I doubt he would be under any obligation to buy if no price had been fixed

Got a price paid his deposit and when the dealer put the order in he was told they couldn’t stand to current prices with the way costs are going. Got his deposit back

I was in a similar situation 6 weeks ago for a cattle trailer, I got a phone call about a cancelled order subsequently and was sorted with that. If it wasn't for that I was told they were going to be able to quote me in early November

One for scoff, I don't think It's the mixer wagon one that's for sale!
I saw one on DD couple of years ago, it was a Dennis 4x2 mobile workshop with crane, PTO generator, air compressor, tool lockers, flatbed, crew lunch cabin etc ex UK water company , tiny mileage and I think was only 10k euros . It was an impressive piece of kit and must have cost an absolute fortune when new. I d have loved to add it to my fantasy workshop ( non existent yet!)

It’s one thing asking that much but are people actually paying it ? price of everything gone fecking mad
Last I heard, the manufacturers are waiting on supplies of microchips to continue production of cars and tractors. And a lot of manufacturers were down to 50% capacity with social distancing rules. And container prices have rocketed from about £2k up to £14k now, if they can be got at all. Supplies of stuff ordered months ago are showing up with a lot of lower than ordered numbers of items and some not there or available to be got at all.

Just in time delivery worked well at reducing the fat in the system until a part of it broke and now it seems we will have to remove some of the muscle to remain going. Inflation looks likely to soar in the short term and many countries and manufacturers will try to rebuild their supply capacity nearer to where it's needed at a higher price which again feeds into higher prices. There's a higher price needed for resilience over lower cost, it seems.

Edit: With reduced supplies of new equipment, there's fewer trade ins and prices of that equipment is rising.

chips are the big contributor to costs as raw materials have actually fallen a lot in price in the past two months , China having a pretty bad falling out with Australia being a big contributor

takes a while for value to work its way through the chain of course
