would,nt it just,just dug out this old 1972 price list when i bought that 1540
the price is before discount,and wheat at £35 ton,at todays wheat price £110 ton
a new combine should be under £20,000 and not over £100,000 shit that dont add up
Bet you thought that they were dear enough back then !
With maths like that it makes you think why the economy doesnt add up any more.
When the man who spends all year working to make / grow something and he gets less than the bloke who sells it on (often without even having to handle it), yet to grow and harvest the crop u have to lay out the cost of a flat or a small house.
I went to LAMMA at Newark the other week, to get some photos of various kit and diden bother asking how much they were, wish I had now as a comparison.
The money that must have been lined in the field at Newark must run to a few million £ x 10. If a new combines £100k + Whats a Challanger or a JD rubber tracked crawler run at ?
Heres an Challenger MT 765C that was on display. http://tractors.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Ch ... G_4620.jpg
