No rental charge here either. Maybe they make it up in the cost of the product. I know one thing, Urea has gone from $350/ton last November to $446 last week. Meanwhile calf prices have gone about the same percentage in the other direction.

I don't give them any slack. The guy before you will drive the cart back to depot with his 1 ton at 50 mph, have everything engaged and trash the whole drive mechanism. True story. That guy doesn't pay for any of the damages he caused, but you can be assured that everyone else will through fertilizer prices.

Tom should get free cart rental at the very least. Should get discount on fertilizer for that load as well, but wouldn't hold my breath.
I pretty much agree Arron. But where does everyone keep coming up with cart rental.
I've never seen a fertilizer dealer charge cart rental unless you want to use to spread seed.
I don't know how a dealer couldn't charge cart rental. Dealer here has eight 6 to 8 Ton carts here worth a good 20k a piece. Plus 2 hopper loader trucks to transfer in field. Tires alone are about $500 US a piece. Lots of guys put deer antlers through them in spring. I know dealer keeps 4 to 5 on rims ready to go.
I think they make it up on people who put out fertilizer when they probably wouldn't without a cart

More than likely you guys are paying for the cart within the fertilizer price. Nothing is free in this world. :cowboy:

Maybe I think we're about 430.00 a ton on urea right now. Sure seems expensive enough.

No buggy rent here. Best i can tell most are junk. Had one last fall so bad they had to shovel into different one. For me to finish. That junk is cost of doing business the rent i guess. Watch like eagle at all times.

Spreader is figured in the fertilizer cost....you can get a discount on the price of fertilizer if you have your own.

I noticed everything going up right along with the booming economy. We'll see how it measures up to the deliberately "ruined" economy.

Not my year for fertilizer buggies. Wanted to top dress after first cutting and with a forecast of some days of rain I decided to do it today. They told me the setting and I looked also but didn't know the buggy was in high range. Nothing on the buggy to tell you what is high or low. So several acres got about 80 units of nitrogen. Hope it rains and doesn't burn it up.

Starting tomorrow and for a few days they are forecasting rain. This ground is a little wet natured anyway. Who knows what the temps will do, my luck it will be hot and dry. This field did over 6 4x5 rolls on first cutting per acre.
