Fendt transmission rebuild cost 25k

Have looked at that, big cost to do it. I’m just weighing up options. A second tractor would be handy at times and the depreciation on a used one should be lower. If a breakdown were to occur, either tractor could take over.

It’s the reliability of a used tractor is the main concern I would have. I wouldn’t mind the odd repair but too much downtime would be a pain.

So you just need some big old powershift bus to lug a plough?

Looking at the spot price, that chicken feed seems cheap!
Grain lorry arrived the other week. Driver opened end door to sweep out. Previous load had been screenings - broken grains, chaff and loads of tiny little stones.

I said "where do you take that stuff, to a digester?"

"No, goes to a chicken feed company. That's all they ever take - screenings"

Absolutely full of stones it was. I couldn't believe it.

Just been talking to local farmer he said local contractor recently had Fendt transmission rebuilt at a cost of £25,000
He also said full artic load of chicken feed is £10,000
I believe chicken feed cost as someone was talking on radio a few days ago not so sure about fendt transmission

Some of the mainline dealers are sending the vario gearboxes to these guys who are repairing all makes including Fendt.

I can quite believe it cost that much to repair the transmission in the original post. A couple of years ago in the yellow peril in the what's in your shed bit a fellow was singing John Deeres praises on how they'd looked after him. A tractor packed up on him when it was just out of warranty, it needed a transmission rebuild and between the dealer and John Deere they met half the cost. Still cost him over £17,000.
Imagine the outrage if it had been another make and not a Fendt or John Deere!

What sort of chicken feed are they producing? They may be milling it right down to make chick crumb etc?

They do. I’ve spoken to them about this exact thing and I can tell you it’s no where near £25,000 quoted on here. No where near. A CNH cvt gearbox off them is just over £5k plus fitting.
