  2. I was laughed at by my local forst dealer for not buying a new tr8 because I told him I had herd of faults with forst , vermeer , Schliesing or bandit are made to better standards
  3. Keep looking , one will turn up .. I found an iveco with just 29k for £5000 , it was a non runner as the half shaft had sheared , cheap fix and on the road for £300 I hope the van will last me a few years
