DAF Trucks at Tip-ex & Tank-ex 2018

DAF Trucks

DAF Trucks will be showcasing its latest LF and CF-series models at the forthcoming Tip-ex & Tank-ex 2018 Show at the Harrogate International Centre, Yorkshire. The model ranges will both be exhibited with ‘Construction’ specifications designed for the rigours of on-/off-road applications. DAF will also showcase CF 450 FAD eight-wheeler fitted with steel muckaway Thompson tipper body and A DAF LF 260 FA 18-tonner.

New CF 450 FAD

This CF Construction model from DAF Trucks provides a 250kg payload advantage compared to its CF predecessor. This weight saving is achieved predominantly with an SR1132T single-reduction tandem-axle fitted with disc brakes, a redesigned exhaust after-treatment system, aluminum air-tanks and a redesigned steering system.

The New CF Construction model is designed with straight beam front axles to offer high ground clearance and approach angle. The 5.7m wheel-base features a Day Cab, a PACCAR MX-11 engine with standard MX engine brake and standard 12-speed, automated TraXon gearbox with on / off road software.

Mounted on its chassis, Thompsons has fitted its Loadmaster Lite body complete with Auto-Loc ‘R’ Tailgate, two-tier cab shield, electric blue mesh sheeting system, PM Onboard 4 Point 1155 weighing system, side and rear under run protection and Binotto TFC 145 front-end tipping gear. Chassis and bodywork result in an impressive 12,560kg unladen weight.

New LF 260 FA

The chassis of LF 260 FA ‘Construction’ is an 18-tonne GVW utility vehicle that features a permanently mounted Econ, twin-chamber hotbox, five cubic metre designed specifically for road patching work. The 4.15m wheelbase Day Cab chassis is powered by a PACCAR PX-7 260bhp engine coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox.

New XF Low Deck Tractor

The XF Super Space Cab low-deck tractor unit will no doubt be a popular attraction although not usually used in the construction sector. The truck features a specially commissioned artwork by air-brush artist Adam Haden, which depicts DAF vehicles throughout the 90-year history of the company.
