1year old merlo written off because of seized engine!

I have just had my weekly view of Hewitt salvage auction and I am surprised to see a one year old merlo written off because of seized engine ... surely would have been cheaper to replace engine??

Deutz 3.6L? i expect. Just doing bits for one in a manitou samething siezed solid! but is a 2015 plate.

New complete engine with ECUs etc £17.5k plus vat (the only engine offering from manitou, no short or long option)
(Manitou do not sell crank shaft, conrods, pistons or rings to rebuild and no exchange offering)

Deutz UK Exchange long engine still way too much money and the terms and conditions are quite extensive with extra charges if its not palleted correctly not cleaned, not wrpaed in shrink wrap, not full assembled or bits missing etc etc etc Also got to wait around 5 weeks for germany to build one!

Deutz UK parts come to around the 5k mark plus vat but 5 weeks wait on the crank shaft and no date on the conrods yet!

Steer clear of anything with a Deutz engine by the sound of it!

Ok, so let’s use logic and common sense…… if it’s only 1 year old, I’m pretty sure merlo uk would “help” so it’s hardly a write off. What is the actual condition and what caused it ? Rather than we all say how terrible Deutz engines are !
Don't start being sensible. It's much easier to get half a story and post a pointless thread and make the rest up

Maybe someone forgot to tighten the sump plug after an oil change ? Who knows ?

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
