Which Equipment do you use since more than 30 years and it's still fine?

My Coleman "green box" and mantle lantern both turned 40 last summer.
Still convenient. Kids are gone so I've bought a Coleman 533 single for my own outings.

I've been using a butane cartrige unit in power failures that I bought in Australia in 1969.
Not the greatest heat output but 100% reliable.

Don't you use it or did you replace every single piece of it, or is it a car from the sixties?

My brother has to buy a new Ford Transit motor after he used his brand new Defender for round about 180 thousand kilometres.
That had been more 3 years than 30 !

Ferguson TE20 Tractor made in the UK early in the 1950s.

Hopefully the Stihl will prove as durable as the Brit kit! ;)

Janne, his Defender is fine!

It's just the Ford Engine in it, that's broken.

God bless America!

its a late 80's defender. engine change because the old one was a non-turbo diesel and it was gutless, i rebuilt and dropped a 200tdi diesel engine in. Apart from service items, and the odd wheel bearing etc its all original. Its my second car and as such only does about 5000km a year.

defenders after the TD5 (about 1999) are shite.
