    Ex forestry commission vehicles

    Does anyone have experience of buying these vehicles, are they worth considering when looking for a used 4x4?

    I think there are some threads about this if you search, but I'm curious to find out what comes back from the SD on this. I like the idea of having a rifle save, internal dog crate and a winch all fitted.

    I imaging they are pretty beaten up by the time they come up for re-sale so they might be a bargain price if you don't mind taking a hit on the wear and tear.

    My 58 plate has just been sold, it is a cracker I wanted to buy it myself but funds and another vehicle prevented me. It is SN58 FDF, if you see it for sale I can give you the full history. A lot of others I wouldn't touch with a barge pole

    I believe a dealer bought a few, no idea what it fetched. One to look out for though, it is a cracker

    I would concur with ranger22 that on the whole there a good buy, they get well looked after, I guess it slightly depends on geography as to the life they might have had before, they go to wholesale auction nationally so could end up anywhere and you'd not know if it had been in Scotland, Devon or Suffolk, I know round here they're often doing very low speeds most of the time relative to mileage and aren't doing masses of road miles, so wear on the engine may vary...
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink
