If you paint it Fendt green it will actually increase the quantity of grain that you load with it.

any idea of cost of steel and labour jonnieboy ?

we bought a new Strimech 2.5 cu m bucket last Aug and it was about 1300

just wondered what your saving would be - half that perhaps ?

pink erm no :roll:

no idea of cost of steel but i'll see if i can find out labour will be 4 x 8 hr days plus £150 for shot blasting and priming
we think it'll hold 2 tonne of wheat and weigh about 700 kg

sheet is 5 mm think the old one is thinner on the sides but thats 20 + plus years old and we thought new machine and all that
