    Any update on the trailer?

    Not yet, busy trying to get FYM out between showers + had to move cattle between out farms and a few into shed for winter (ironically new trailer would have made that easier).

    Should be quite after Halloween, will have time then to go and look properly.

    I'm leaning towards the Bridgeway possibly the 18x7. I wouldn't mind spending the bit extra if I see a similar trailer sheeted in Aluminum but I think the 16x8 Tuffmac is just that bit too wide for my tractor.

    Have you tried these guys? They're near us, do a good job

    Cheap enough at €1000

    Not yet, but I've already saved that add, so I must have been going to.

    Bought a Volvo 622 loader over the weekend, needs some TLC but starting and driving okay. Will give it a full service once it gets down and perhaps flush and replace both transmission and hydraulic fluid.

    Would lifting two bales of silage be too hard on it at this stage of its life, 3300 kg lift out of factory but that's near 40 years ago.

    Any others things that need to looked out for? only for feeding cows and pushing up doing heap.

    Well wear! That’s an interesting buy.

    They are built well. Id think two bales would be easier on it than running twice the distance with one.

    i hear new Volvo parts for them can be got from Pat O’Donnell.

    Any chance of a few pics?

    Well wear....A real classic at this stage.

    I'd say so long as the hydraulics are up to lifting the two bales it will be no hardship on her. She'll be more able for it than some of the modern tractors that they're lifting two bales on....

    Only getting it on Tuesday/Wednesday, link to the add below. Now I'd say she sat for a year since the add went up, it's certainly not sexy

    You should try to get the bits to convert to four wheel drive if what the seller says is true, they're very poor on land

    Id say that would be down the line, it is mainly yard work or stack bales in the summer, but 4wd would certainly be a plus

    I think it's fantastic to see things like that still being used and being made use of instead of being left to rot somewhere

    They weren't pretty, but a lick of paint helps :D

    Good look with the Loader, hope you have plenty of work for it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,174 ✭✭✭✭Muckit


    They were supposed to be a great loader on their day. Would have worked in quarries. Indeed a few still have them tipping about


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,368 ✭✭✭tractorporn


    Was behind a lorry today that was carrying one of those real small teleporters. The passageways here are only 9'8" and I've been thinking about a small loader like a Kramer for a while. This was a weidemann I think as it was coming out of Clarkes, anyone have any experience with them? Anyone any idea of price?

    No idea on price, but have been using one on a large industrial site. It’s a very popular machine there and a favorite of all users.

    Fairly solid machine? Did you find it easy to get to grips with the controls Odelay?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,801 ✭✭✭Odelay

    Solid, very quick on a rough yard which surprised me. Didn’t try it with bales, but it handled a ton of water ok.
    Controls are mostly easy, however it has some sort of hydrostatic drive. Basically if you take your foot off the throttle she breaks. Very annoying but probably can be tuned out of it.
    View to the rhs is poor, but that’s probably the nature of them.

    Ya I test drove a jcb 520-50 and the rhs is the same. Sounds like they're a good little machine, I saw Grassmen had one in a video and they were impressed with it. Price is the only thing, that JCB was a 2010 and it was coming in at 30k

    I drove one years ago on the sites for a very short while, would'nt lift a huge ammount with the boom out from what i remember but in fairness i was probably asking an awful lot of her.

    Is there crab steering on the small ones? Would a skid steer be as usefull?

    I know they are great in a tight space but I honestly think skid steers are the most overrated uncomfortable yoke to be near. Give me a small telehandler any day.

    Looks from the website that only the bigger one has crab steering. I have thought of a skid steer but as Grueller said most dont have a cab and aren't great for the winter and I think our pit would be a bit too high for a skid steer.

    When you add a full cab onto them the price isn't far off a small teleporter.

    There’s a quarry on yer left hand side between Kiltormer and Ballinasloe that I’m nearly certain has one of those Volvo’s. You’d probably pass it more often than me.

    New ones starting €44k+VAT, (you probably won't have much change outta 50k by the time you have it all specced with attachments etc.) Hard enough to get second hand ones, people tend to hold on to them for a good few years. Wilsons of Rathkenny in Antrim advertising a couple of newer seconds; unsure of price, but probably north of 30k I'd imagine. Not as good as skid steers in tight passages, or for cutting out silage blocks either, as the view of the grab is better in the skiddie.

    That's not as bad as I had thought, I would have guessed 60k if i had to. I've seen a couple of demos advertised on dungdeal last night I'll make some enquiries.

    What size of a machine is that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,118 ✭✭✭funkey_monkey


    On the handler subject, which ones apart from the Dieci Agri Handler and the Merlo MultiFamer have 3 pt linkage and services at the rear?

    It's the Weidemann T4512. The price I mentioned earlier would be as per ploughing match last year, bound to have risen a bit since again. The Wacker Neuson TH412 is the exact same machine, but maybe slightly cheaper.
