I have looked at that option. Seems they are all in same boat. Would just be joining the back of another queue.

Can the dealer not provide a decent stock baler until new 1 arrives?
I still have the machine I've traded in that I am using, the dealer is doing all they can to be fair

Whats the record for ordering kuhn kit and it not turning up? I'll start... ordered a baler 7 months ago for march delivery, still not here... can't be on my own here!
Place I work ordered 4 KTwo trailers for March delivery... 1 turned up last week with a letter saying we’d not see the other 3 until November... deal has been done and finance has started so no going back now... but fabricator we use was telling me the other day 9 months ago when they put the order in steel was about £1000 a ton... by the time they build our trailers I’m guessing in October it will be £1700-2000 a ton... wonder if they’re going too stand the loss on material costs or try and renegotiate the deal? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Steel has gone up massivly. Had a quote for a Scandinavian style grader about 15 months ago for around £300.decided to add one to a bucket order a few wekks ago and it had gone up to well over £700.

Ordered an Amazone Zam spreader in March and they dropped it and damaged it. They’ve lent me one in the meantime still waiting for the new one coming which hopefully won’t get dropped whenever it turns up. Actually quite happy with the lent one we all like it now we have got used to it. Holds 5/6 bags bit frightening on our ground usually only have 2/3 bags in it.
I can get you a keen price and supply you a new McHale belt baler tomorrow or possibly a roller one if you prefer that?

Steel has indeed risen in price scarily so over t he last 6 months. This coupled with reduced stock and reduced production due to the slow down last year and now a recovering demand has created the perfect storm. Demand greater than supply creates inflation unfortunately. It’s not just farm machinery; it goes for many products that we all use. Component suppliers are also ramping up prices to many manufacturers; just look at building materials!

Doesn't take long for the price increases at farm gate to disappear out the gate again.

Turnover increases, but the more that comes in the more chance you do have to hold on to it!

Am into the 5th week waiting for a rear hub to turn up for a mitsubishi, don't think it's as much a supply issue but it seems to be stuck in transport limbo somewhere. Real p.i.t.a as can't drive it either as its the ring for the abs sensor that is gone and doing funny things wit 4wd n what not, 28th is the latest (and 3rd) supposed date for arrival...

Surely if the finance has started they can’t renegotiate? Not sure id be paying finance on something I’m not going to see for a good few months yet though but could work in you’re favour I guess 👍🏻

I think this may also be my problem, the transport, they have said transport is letting them down, I'm just irritated that the deals done, I've not got the machine and I've done all my first cut baling

Could be worse.... they’ve not had our trailers off us yet... I know somebody bought 2 Stewart grain trailers for March delivery and they’re now saying last week of June and they’ve already had his trailers and sold them
 

Could a ‘Meat Tax’ be on the cards in the UK?

Written by Richard Halleron from Agriland

The latest machination coming from the so-called ‘opinion formers’, who seem to have the ear of government advisors in London, is the introduction of a ‘Meat Tax’ at consumer level.

This approach, it is argued, would have the combined impact of reducing meat consumption levels (I can really see the health benefits coming through now), while also helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of production agriculture.

What absolute drivel! In my opinion, none of this makes sense at any level. This is a scurrilous and unfounded attack on livestock farming in this part of the world.

Yet, it has to be taken seriously. I make this point because economists at Rothamsted Research have already crunched the numbers where the introduction of a ‘UK...
