    Has anyone viewed the safety test on uTube?. Proace auto brakeing wrecks a car and sends pedestrian to the Pearly Gates.

    With this question, the least you could do was to post the link to the YouTube film.

    Don't think the UK has the 4x4.

    Thought so. But I was hoping for some response from the other (non UK) members. I know, it's a long shot to post here, but this is Europe's biggest Toyota forum.

  3. 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.
