A reliable machine with a good bit of life left in it is my ask, that i wont need to spend a fortune on repairs after 3hr work, and one that is easy for a novice to drive, not too fussy about the brand
do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
We recently sold a 10000 odd hour ish Volvo ec140 from 2007 and it sold very fast for about 19k iirc. It wasn’t end of life actually felt in good order however it shows the bottom of the market for a good useable daily machine imo. You would want to put putting 1000 hours a year on her.
You should for 20-25 k get a decent enough yoke. I sadly have nothing at the moment
