It's over $4k for my household, lib

Comparing a tax cut for an individual to a company getting hit with a $11k surcharge on a $million+ order is a bit disingenuous, don't you think?

Yeah, the really successful businesses use regulations to capture entire markets. Duh.


There's truth in this. When I lived in Singapore, we started the Australian sub of our Cat dealership. Safety regs on the pipelines there are so strenuous that even our US HQ kept arguing with me that we were doing unnecessary work trying to comply. (In the mining world there, a A$1.6 million D11 becomes a A$2.4 million D11 pretty quickly by the time you add all the safety aftermarket stuff that's required.)

In a couple of years, we had a commanding market share in our core line just because we did the homework and met all the safety requirements that everybody else kept arguing were overkill.

You can either piss into the wind or figure out how to do what the others can't or won't. Stopping the wind is the least likely of all 3, and best left to those that can do it.

Did your prices go up anytime last year?

Sure. They move. But they don't do it in a matter of days. You get plenty of lead time to bake it into the process. When a hit like this comes (and steel futures spike like they have), and it all happens in one week, you can't lay that groundwork.

Again, this is not set in stone yet, and we just have a "heads up" right now. My personal (or business) issues are not what I started this thread for, though. It is to point out that the concept of "unintended consequences" for the manufacturers has come into play, specifically comparing two similar suppliers that source their steel structures differently.

Futures spiked last year. BTW... China also manipulated the markets last year too.

However, you are not informed.

The benchmark iron ore spot price has fallen for four consecutive sessions, and sits at a one-month low.


SHFE Rebar ¥3,889 , -1.27%
DCE Iron Ore ¥513.50 , -1.25%
DCE Coking Coal ¥1,352.50 , -1.39%
DCE Coke ¥2,147.00 , -1.51%


Last year these jumped quickly by 5 to 6%.

Where is your thread on the manipulation by china causing you great harm?

As for hot-rolled coil steel.... It's been going up due to the economy. Up from $620-$660s in one year. No Tariff talk.... just economy.

From Jan 1, 2018 to Jan 30th... it moved up from $660 to $679. BUT ON JAN 31st.... It jump 7.6%. Why? No talks of tariffs. Do you you know why? I do.

More so than that....

Where is your thread bitching about this Under the last year of Obama? It almost DOUBLED. From $360 to $633.



Can I see your thread blaming whatever it was that caused a spike of almost 17% in 1 day???? Let me help with that date.... March 30, 2016.

If he's making 10% profit margin


If he is only making 10% overall profit on his new equipment he needs a better sales force or his equipment is inferior. Also, a heavy equipment dealer will make higher profits on parts and service from units already in his customers fleet population.

Rental fleet will be a little lower profit due to competitive nature of rental industry, but his used equipment should be averaging around a 15-17% clip.

I agree with you that the increased in cost from manufacturer will be passed on to the customer. The fear he has is he most likely offers an inferior brand of equipment and any increase like 11K makes his inferior product less attractive.

His company may also offer above average customer support. What he really wanted to do in this thread is bash the tariff and brag that he spent 5-6 Million on new equipment.

So the price of your farm equipment will increase about 2% this year? That is about the same percent increase that cars see every single year without tariffs. How much did the price of a ribeye increase this past year?

The average wage growth in the US is higher than the 2% increase in prices that you will experience.

Why cant we just enslave a bunch of americans to work for free and not have any regulations so that we can compete in the "free market"

That is basically what China is doing

We need free and FAIR trade

I'd be interested to know the fate of telegraph operators when the telephone came along?
