    €8500 20ft is the smallest they do.

    It looks to be a decent enough trailer for that money.....

    It's a bit bodged together, with no lights or brakes and tyres are fairly worn looking, they are asking enough for it if you ask me. Any decent looking second hand trailers I've seen are getting close in price to the bottom end price of the new ones I've been looking at.

    You know, I'm not sure. I didn't enquire too much after he said that was the smallest. Even with VAT added it seems good price compared to Tuffmac 16ft.

    I think 20x8 ft is probably too big a trailer for my 390T?

    20ft isnt the smallest trailer they do. Must have been a different salesman i spoke to!

    This was the dealer in Longford, not the manufacturer so possibly. I'm not done looking just yet. Did you get prices?

    The telescopic gates on the back are handy looking . I'd like a roof though

    I don't like how the wheel arches are in the trailer. I'm not fond of anything that could cause an animal to lose its footing and go down in the trailer.

    My current trailer is like that and I've never seen it as an issue. It means having a less steep ramp which is easier on cattle while loading.

    Joskin make one which reclines using hydraulic rams that has no ramp at all and cattle can walk straight in.

    Everything from 7+vat to 15all in. For 18ft trailers. Amt was near the lower end. Dont have the budget this year anyway it looks like.

    My young lads put me watching him awhile ago. I didn't like him at the start but I find he's fairly honest and shows a lot of different stuff. He has a jape of Jersey x calves as well. I really liked that video of the dosing

    Young lad trying his best tbf. Not a whole pile of employment in that part of the country I'd imagine. Some of the jerseys dont look great you'd wonder the last couple of years how he got them to the factory. Machinery wouldn't be very fresh but he is honest about there being no chance of buying fresh stuff. I'd love if my better half came home from work and drew in a few load of grass or helped with cattle!

    I'd say they got alot of those calves for next to nothing

    Watched a lot of his videos there tonight. Worth watching for his honesty alone. One viewer offered him FREE Jersey x FR bull calves for next year. They were up to 700 cattle at one stage and they also went down with TB in 2016, if I remember right. All in all a good hard working operator. Jeez he has a lot going on.

    Where is he based?

    That’d be on the brecks (sand land)in Norfolk around thetford most likely. It’s called a minimat.
    It has a lot of veg grown on it but only since irrigation became a thing. It was just rough grazing hence how Guinness’s ended up with such a big spot back in the day.

    He's contracting if he took the calves instead of money he's definitely losing money!

    Anyone hear of a large tractor dismantlers yard having a closing down sale in the munster area somewhere?

    I saw a somewhat cryptic post on Facebook so was just wondering.

    Saw the same post lol. I don't know where but a place in Kerry sprung to my mind first. I could be wrong. I don't know the name of it but they have hundreds of the vintage type tractors that he was talking about.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,938 ✭✭✭dzer2


    If.either has a name I would appreciate a pm. Doing up a Nuffield atm


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,917 ✭✭✭selectamatic


    An aul spot in cork sprung to mind for me tbh but I don't think the same men would be throwing in the towel just yet...
