Ah confused????. Oh wait was it purchased by the lads with the ponies?
Great to see a young fella making a go of things
the lads that sell gates and paint sheds
Wonder What's the change in farming policy?
Presumably the other horsey crowd that also don't pay taxes, they jump hurdles on racetracks instead of running on public roads though in fairness.
the other boys will be self isolating for the next few weeks i suppose, i hope i don,t need any tools while they,re off the roads
Well diesel won't be worth robbing shortly so I'm guessing they will be seen with the rear door of the hiace up in the air with a couple of pallets of Bog roll hanging out the back instead.
Arse paper going cheaap boss, fully recycled....
Only used once
auction over the road today, small amount of machinery but still a big crowd and i just saw the tractors selling , tvo grey fergy 1800, major with a loader and independent hydraulic pump 2600 and a 50b digger 3200 , all in good condition with good tyres
That Major is on Donedeal for another grand tonight.
The 50b looked clean
Interesting read. The hours are very low on the big deutz and John Deere. They only did about 300hrs a year. how was there so many tractors in the fleet if they weren't clocking up a lot of hours?
werent clocking up as much hours because of the amount of machines there was. he had 2 silage fleets pretty much except for a 2nd loader. and they werent going 24/7 either and the lack of drivers too i spose
where did you see the 50b ? i hope you weren,t up this country looking for bargains
Twas on the internet...
With the Major it was two loaders I suppose
@humungus you must have bought the digger
What did the Volvo loader sell for?
Says in that link that it went unsold at €78k
Thanks it’s not visible on my phone for some reason. Serious amount of life left in that. It’s not even broken in at those hours.
Would strike me as very good value for that if it had sold.
Just discovered if you turn your phone sideways all the info appears
The price of it in my eyes. Vat and fees on top of that? That would take it to just under 100k
Anyone buying that would get vat back I’d imagine. 6k hrs on one of them is probably only 10% of its life if looked after. What would a new one cost? I don’t know but could be 170k?
10% might be pushing it!
Maybe the new ones aren’t as good but these machines are built to a different standard to a JCB loadall or a tractor. If well serviced it should be good to a long way towards 60k hours before an engine/transmission rebuild.
