"I'm voting Brexit as my mate says I'll get 10% more for my wheat"

"I'm not buying any new machinery as the price has gone up 10%"

You couldn't make it up ....

Except after Brexit we still don't manage our own affairs, we just replace one lot of beaurocrats for another.. how often has an EU directive been gold plated by our own when set into British law... :banghead:

As the BREXIT negotiations flounder on, the pound will probably weaken further (last weeks interest rate rise was probably aimed at strengthening the pound) so I am afraid machinery prices will increase. Some products we import have gone up by 20% since the BREXIT vote and we have had to absorb some of that.
I hear the 'Well buy British cry" but many British machines incorporate a lot of imported components, and they will increase in price.

You sound like the British media, all doom and gloom, i think it will be the best thing thats happened in this country since the magna carta. Just trying to be possessive, world trade and all that, more doors should open, i do agree, we need the right people to drive it forward, not sure our prime minister is that person, willing to be proved wrong.

I'll be quiet happy if my gloomy forecast is proved wrong. It suits my sanity for much of life if I start with low expectations and be pleasently surprised rather than have high expectaions and end up bitterly disappointed...

Freer world trade should benefit producers who's products have unique selling points. I, like many British farmers are set up to produce commodity products and we simply can't currently produce commodity products as cheaply in the U.K. as some of our competitors can... but we will adapt or walk away.

Well I dropped my prices 3 years ago and have kept them their.
The city has been pushing the value of the pound making manufacturing in the UK uneconomic and they have much to answer for. We have a two speed Britain. I am convinced manufacturing will return as imported goods get dearer and farming will benefit in the long run.

Spot on that man.
i thought you were... bloody good subbys mind.... ive a classic 3 leg one here with what looks like a narrowed rear roller approx 2.5m
it does a good job tho. only thing id change is make it autoreset somehow... shearpins are a good idea but shear too easily !! & i go steady with it 2.5-3mph thats it & around 13" deep all the time. Now use SUMO one piece point with leg shielding i find them the best & no dearer than any others. Did you ever make an AutoReset one ?? away too look on your website now ive found it !!

Nah, don't think so. Machinery prices are going to have to come down a lot. Or have yards full of expensive unsold stock. 2 choices.
yep it has to happen things are double what they were 10years ago it has to stop.... can anyone see our end products doubling in the near future i cant.... were all running with so little margins & none at all now its a tipping point.. some cant see this can they... we all cant double or triple our business sizes to some how make things add up. But does it add up ? in any case i think the smaller ones might just see things come right yet... (I hope) :scratchhead:

Are you using the right shear-bars? Yes the points with leg guards help with leg wear but need more pulling and I do make an auto-reset.

AFAIK iam using the right shear bars/pins? just get them from same dealer who sells SUMO machines. each time ive bought them they seem different tho. they are correct width for the holes anyways if that helps.
Pulling the subby isnt an issue ive 240hp on it now... just run at 1550 revs same as most of my ploughing you can fairly cover the ground all the same when doing whole fields.

Livestock has doubled, ways and means of keeping mechanised without spending a fortune on new stuff.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
