That's actually not a bad job for a Northerner.
Don't hit me with those negative waves so early in the morning.

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

think thats called "Renault brown "unless claas has changed it
it's not the size that matters but the power at the shaft

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
