What's it worth?

Coming up at auction in 4 weeks. Neighbor bought one new in 1995 for about 5K (3750 US) and it doesn't have the tandem wheels. Very heavy built. Be about 30'. Just so happens that I was needing a decent bale wagon this year to replace the old one.

Find an old logging trailer pup and build a deck on it. Will last you forever and float where that outfit will be stuck. Cheaper too.

Will get you a picture of ours tomorrow.
Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)

Pups are extremely rare here as the regs/insurance around them are harsh for the little bit of extra wood you haul. Only seen a handful in my life.

Even if I did find one, guarantee I could not buy it and put a deck on it for what this one will cost. I don't have any bottomless hay ground, so getting stuck is not an issue. Most of my land is gently rolling hills.

That trailer pictured would bring in excess of $6000 here if in good condition. Half that if worn out.

I attended two large machinery auctions recently around here. If that was in the lineup as cheap as somethings like that I seen sell, although good running gears still bring decent money, I would say $1800 max.....

Yeah, bale wagons never even come close to that price used here. Two super heavy tandem gears sold last fall for $1200 each, but had a wooden pole decks.

Sounds like a deal. How many bales will you load on it?

Many dairies hire custom corn chopping now days, and haul with semis, so silage boxes are not in demand.

The common approach here is to buy a cheap silage box on a heavy tandem wagon and scrap out the box.

9'x30' 12 ton. I will never put more than a single layer of 12 1500 lb 5x5's. Neighbor has bent the tandem beams out of line on his two wagons by pushing the weight limits and pulling them sideways out of mud holes. But he is one of these guys that likes to promote the size of his pecker based on how many bales and wagons he can pull at once which is about 22 bales with these wagons, which is way overloaded.

Not many garbage silage boxes available around here. Majority are well kept.
