He's really trying to sell this......

I'm looking for a telehandler at the minute so I've been browsing all the usual channels for the last month or so.

I came across this one, its the right spec and comes in under budget but you wouldn't touch it with a barge pole would you? I'd hate to think what kind of "care" the rest of the machine has had.

Oh I don't know. Nothing a jet wash couldn't handle!

These things are pretty basic. Diesel engine and hydraulics. Can imagine Manitou genuine parts are an arm and a leg though. What kind of money do these things go for?

This one is 20k.

I understand its just a clean but it makes you wonder how he's looked after the rest of it.

Cheers fella, I've actually seen that one but I'm looking for something a bit newer. I bought our New Holland tractor off that lot 10yrs ago.

Ooooh! A "what's the best stuff to clean my telehandler" thread.
Some fairy power spray, elbow grease & it'll come up like new😄
