@  PaMike : (26 May 2017 - 11:26 AM) CNH is playing with their parts pricing just like JD. A $2,000 gearbox I bought a year ago is now $2,400...That's a 20% increase...
@  Shetland She... : (26 May 2017 - 09:25 AM) 50º and light rain here in srn NH. Rain off & on today, with a high in upper 50s.
@  swmnhay : (26 May 2017 - 07:53 AM) Cheap rate to get their trucks back to home.
@  swmnhay : (26 May 2017 - 07:52 AM) @PaMike It depends,I can get a backhaul rate with a reefer for $2.00 a mile from local trucking co that hauls out of JBS
@  PaMike : (25 May 2017 - 08:34 PM) I would hav thought a reefer trailer is way more expensive to run than a flatbed hense a higher rate...???
@  endrow : (25 May 2017 - 08:08 PM) @  vhaby Where did the drill come from in Pa.
@  vhaby : (25 May 2017 - 06:50 PM) Here is near Tyler, TX
@  vhaby : (25 May 2017 - 06:49 PM) Purchased a rust free, 10ft JD 8300 dbl-dsk opener former bean drill having a small seed box from a used equipment dealer in Pennsylvania and had it shipped here for $1700. Trucker was on a long haul carrying other equipment beyond our location, and was glad to get the extra $s for a full load.
@  Circle MC Fa... : (25 May 2017 - 04:50 PM) Van/reefer freight is waaaay different than flatbed freight so you're comparing apples to oranges there
@  BWfarms : (25 May 2017 - 01:02 PM) I asked about a 100 mile haul one time and it was $500. Flatbed equipment rates that are low in mileage factor in loading and unloading. They don't like short hauls because time is used up and they would have to work to find a suitable return load. Running empty doesn't make them money. The longer the haul, the lower the mileage depending on equipment.
@  PaMike : (25 May 2017 - 12:17 PM) $3.11 a loaded mile is cheap? Buddy runs a Pete with a reefer trailer and doesnt get that per mile...
@  BPatrick : (25 May 2017 - 12:01 PM) If he's not legal, then he's also ripping you off!
@  BPatrick : (25 May 2017 - 12:00 PM) PaMike.....if he is doing it legally, i.e. Dot, mc, insurance, etc,etc. that's cheap! Not easy being a compliant motor carrier out here these days!
@  PaMike : (25 May 2017 - 10:45 AM) Guys want $700 to run 225 miles down to Harrisonburg Va with an 8 ft wide discbine that weights 3500 lbs...good grief....
@  Shetland She... : (25 May 2017 - 06:18 AM) 52º and cloudy here in srn NH. Today may see showers then rain with a high in upper 50s.
@  Vol : (25 May 2017 - 05:30 AM) @clowers ....that sounds very good clowers....our TSC is not bad here like some others have mentioned....I guess it all goes back on management.
