    Cabless electric tractor

    Gross Margins

    Been doing some light reading on a Saturday afternoon. Are these figures accurate? Makes grim reading. And confirms what @DrWazzock says about living off family labour and depreciation/old kit and DIY repairs. What's the consensus on GM for 21/22/23? Will rising input costs swallow up...
