    If going 24/7, not in an Irish context doing 1500hrs a year. Would 25k hrs not be closer to actual lifespan in Irish conditions

    This is it, not many can give one of these machines the full level of use to justify it

    Are the hammer prices not subject to vat so instead of getting 23% back it's still to be added on

    I would assume they are subject but you can them claim it back as usual

    Would that contractor have been doing much work? Would all his stuff have been bought new?

    You bought the grey Fergie so :Whistle2:, to be fair It's not often a 50b as clean as that one comes up in ex Farm condition even though it was probably a torque machine.

    On the Cork auction, wasn't the four cylinder JD good value? Was either a 6330 or 6320 for I think 25k plus vat.

    The F’s are the most sought after,you can disable the emission bollocks on the G’s but more again on the H series.

    This is the 2nd low houred 70F that Cathal has had in the last 6 months,he must know the value or he wouldn’t asked the same each time.

    There isn’t a machine built as well and they deserve the reputation they have.

    Starting to think about a loading shovel for the farm, tractor is just getting a hammering. What were/are the Volvo L45 like or is an L50 just a totally different horse altogether. Probably looking for something under 10yrs old

    I think the L45 was a Volvo by name only. Goldcrop had one but got rid of it. Not sure what the L50 are like.

    You can get the kit to bypass the emissions Bollocks in Canada or some other country. Guys were making them up themselves but were only guessing the back pressures.
    Only heard it from another member of the Volvo fan club.

    They are expensive alright but anyone that has one sings their praise. For short draws less than 5k they are unmatchable for efficiency.

    If you buy an L45, we will seriously take the piss and tell you what you should have done.
    You saw what happened to me when I simply rounded a wheel stud, the L45 saga could last months.

    Even a 1982 Michigan 4400 with a sheet of galvanize on the roof (I know of one) would have better street cred.

    A keltec type trailer will give you a better return than a lot of things for that money

    Are you using one yourself? Do you transport wrapped or unwrapped?

    I do think a melted and wrapping st the yard is probably the best system, if you have the staff
