    On point of ordering a new trailer, blacks a no cost option. Just wondering if anyone's got one and regretted it, thinking about seeing trailer against roof when tipped, and how about keeping them clean ? Snapchat-266969321.jpg

    Black as a colour usually keep the piece of equipment fresher looking for longer, a you can't see the defects.

    Guess any scrape of the paint will show up more though

    Anyway, we are a multicultural society so go for it I say

    Not sure I could do it... there’s a few round here and they all look old now, dull, streaks, soap stains, dusty...

    Saw some cool Richard westerns in gunmetal grey and liked them!

    Those Richard Westerns in gun metal grey look the mutts.... as for black if you keep it shiny it looks good, when mixed with dust and dung not so...

    Just rather thinking if I got a black one behind my fastrac I might get confused with the Richardson brothers

    Ordered 2 x Smyth trailers in red and that was 5-6 years ago, they still look like new, no fading.

    They are hard to fill at night is the only thing I have found

    I didn't get to talk to Smyth at Lamma. How do they compare on price to the Broughan? Apart from the sloping front they looked pretty similar.

    How do you find them compared to Stewart trailers?

    Get a nice brightly coloured one and give everyone on the road as much chance of seeing it as possible.

    There's not much between them really, the western seems as well built, it rocks about a bit more but we put that down to the tyres, this is our first with floatation tyres.

    We've a Smyth and Stewart on flotations.

    The Stewart is far more stable.

    Silage contractor who comes here runs 14t Richard Westerns and 18t Stewarts. All on similar flotations. The Westerns are like a boat compared to the larger Stewarts, and having pulled both on our banks I know which ones I prefer. If given a choice, even to come up country, his lads will leave the RWs in the yard and take the Stewarts every time. I was assuming it was down to stiffer springs on the 18 tonners until you said your big RW rocks too.

    Theyre not massively different but slightly, the western is a lot bigger as a silage trailer than the 16ton stewarts. Its not bad enough that the Stewarts get used first anyway.

    Blends in a bit too much with the back ground.

    I bought a Marshall that the previous owner had painted Claas green ( badly)
    Claas dealer was keen to get it moved on so it was cheap
    Its now Red
    My favourite colour for trailers
