Hi Guys, Just got myself a new Duster Laurette 4x4 in silver. Will be used off road most weeks as part of my work. Had a Ssangyong Kyron before this but it was 5 years old and had been worked hard. Hope that this will be able to keep up for a couple of years at least. Passed its first test of being able to sleep in the back while at work!!

Hope everyone is well.

Hi, thanks. I work as a Duke of Edinburgh Award Development Officer but I also have a first aid training company of my own teaching mainly outdoor courses. Then in my spare time I also help out with a bit of tree cutting.

Quick update on the off road capabilities for those of you that are wondering. In a word BRILLIANT! ! Used it for 3 days in mud, shingle and cut down forest areas on the side of Ben Lomond and I was well impressed so was a couple of farmer mates who normally drive Ford rangers and Toyota hiluxs. Will try and remember some pics next time but if your thinking bout 4x4 instead of 4x2 then I would say do it.

that's great to hear, i was always curious of how good or bad it was. what other off-road vehicles have you driven in the past?

Goes without saying I had a go of the mates Ranger and Hilux but others include shoguns, x trail, LandRover 90 and 110 lwb and swb. Discovery, Range Rover ssangyong kyron, the odd polaris, quad and argo! Also a couple not worth even calling 4x4s
