FOURTRAK VALUES

Good secondhand Fourtraks sell very readily, but watch out for ones previously employed as a back-up tractor. Typical forecourt retail prices for vehicles with average mileage, a service history and in good order are:

1986 C-plate swb Commercial, power steering – £4650

1987 D-plate EL Estate – £6495

1992 J-plate EL Estate, top TDX spec – £12,000

1993 L-plate Fieldman lwb – £11,500

1993 L-plate Independent TDX – £14,750

Notes: 1. Daihatsus three-year, unlimited mileage warranty transfers with the car. 2. A few non-UK spec Fourtraks have been imported. Recognise them by their "Rocky" name, but dont shy away as differences are minimal. Finding parts and service should be OK.

The Wadhurst, East Sussex, branch of Humphries and Parks holds new and used Fourtraks and can supply all parts (01892-783055).
