Just in! Used quad bikes at Truro Tractors

Truro Tractors has just added two re-conditioned Honda ATVs to their used stock at their Treburley depot, near Launceston.

Htrx500fm-fl-370onda TRX500FM

The first of these quad bikes is a TRX500FM on a 2013 plate.  The Foreman is built for hard work and hauling big loads.

This particular quad bike has 2250 hours on the clock, and comes in at £3,750 net. Click here top open a new page with more photos  of this ATV.

 

trx420fm-fl-370Honda TRX420FM

The second quad bike newly available is a TRX420FM.  This model is smaller than the 500 – which means it can go more places, with greater agility, and better fuel consumption.

This unit is also on a 2013 plate.  With only 650 hours on the clock, it can be yours for £3,450 net.  Click here for more.

 

Used farm utility vehicles at Truro Tractors

Truro Tractors has many more used quad bikes and ATVs for sale.  Current Used ATV Stock includes Kawasaki 4010 mules and Honda quad bikes, several of which are road legal.

If you need something a bit smaller there is also a Suzuki 400, and for the kids why not try an Apache 99cc for only £500.
