Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Proace in the forest

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

My name is Wolter. I'm a professional arborist living in The Netherlands. 

Last month I've put my signature under the contract to buy a Toyota Proace Worker 4x4. And as I did when purchasing my other cars I searched the internet to find an appropriate forum to learn more about my new car to be. 

To be... In this case it'll be a wait until at least August/September. 

Untill then my trusted Ford Transit Custom will have to keep doing the job. 

Why the Proace 4x4? In the last year my work has shifted from being a climbing arborist in the urban regions to more teaching for one of the forestry schools here in The Netherlands. This means getting into the forests with a trailer with a ****load of chainsaws and other equipment that the students use during the day. Was my Custom up for that job? Well, surprisingly better than the Transporters I owned. But still every now and then I got horribly stuck in nowhere land. 

Having owned a Lada Niva and driving the schools Defender I knew that a 'real' 4x4 was not my cup of tea. I like big boot with a low floor is my thing. 

After owning two Transporters I knew that I really didn't want a Synchro. Tord was no option either. They don't do a 4x4 Custom. So the search ended at the Peugeot/Citroën/Opel/Vauxhall/Toyota brotherhood that worked together with Dangel 4x4.

This will probably be the last van I'll buy, so I'll treat myself with somthing nice.
