I agree with you Alfred, its a disappointment that Ag machinery doesn't have near the service life or warranty that construction equipment has.


I may be young, but I've been told I am wise beyond my years.

Yes, you are correct. The economics don't allow many farmers to pay for a 5 year warranty, or spend $50k every 2 years to keep a tractor going, but it's no sweat for a big company to drop that much for new tracks on a D8 dozer

I may be young, but I've been told I am wise beyond my years.

We pay more for ag machinery then construction. You look at a new combine for close to half a million dollars that you only use 300 hours a year and in two years the warranty has expired. On the construction side of things you can buy a decent size new track hoe for half a million and put it to working making money 24/7 365 days of the year and have warranty for 5000 or 6000 hours.

Getting back to the original question on how we determine the payback of our sheds... my last project was a $24k Goodon building for cold storage. Every time I opened those doors with one finger it got me so excited I had to change my shorts. I figure it paid for itself the first 50 times I opened the door and saved me 50 trips to the cat house.

Had 777f that clocked up 10k hr in well under 2 years. They were on 6k hr warranty and had some big issues just out of that, cat helped fix but I would of hatted to know how much it took in $$ to get the 5 777f to 10000 hrs. 777d sure are good trucks.

I guess part of it is that we all have our different machinery choices as well... My main tractor is worth a similar value as some of your green light quotes!!! Same with my combine. So the perspectives are different indeed. If it is a matter of course to run new stuff, and be looking at 40 000 dollar shop bills, I can see where a shop could indeed pay off. But for the rest of us, our 50 000 dollar tractor is not going to get a 40 000 dollar bill. If something major enough happens, we just "upgrade" to something maybe 20 years old rather than 25 years old! lol

Wheras I might put a couple grand a year in basic maintenance to this tractor a year, and forgo some things that are not immediately needed until next year.

We have different farms, different stages and different priorities. Like tillage practices, vertical tillage, heavy harrowing, and the like.

So for some, a shop may pay off, for others not so much. It all depends. Some great perspectives on here.
