DAF now offers several new options for its lineup of vocational trucks, which are well-suited for construction operations. Examples include a new 10-tonne front axle designed to support heavy cranes mounted behind the cab and a lighter-weight 7.5-tonne non-steered trailing axle with a die cast, ultra-rigid housing and a load capacity of 26 tonnes. DAF is also offering a range of new vehicle configurations, which it hopes will help continue its success in the market segment.

Heavy Class Leader

“DAF has been the undisputed leader in the tractor-unit segment in Europe for many years now. We ended the year as the second largest truck brand in Europe with a market share of 16.6% in the heavy class,” said Richard Zink, director of marketing and sales and member of the board of management at DAF Trucks. “This is why we intend to make ourselves an even more prominent contender in the rigids and construction vehicle segment. This is a segment with considerable growth potential for DAF. We offer a strong range of robust chassis and axles, efficient drivelines and comfortable cabs. DAF provides the best truck for every application.”


CF & XF Options

The DAF CF is now available as a 10x4 rigid truck with a steered pusher and double-drive tandem axles. It has a net payload of 30 tonnes, a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 49 tonnes, and a tipper chassis with conversion by Estepe, a truck conversion specialist based in the Netherlands. The XF now has the option for an 8x2 rigid model with a steered trailing axle, two steered front axles, and a GVW of 37 tonnes and as an 8x4 FTM tractor with a combination weight of up to 120 tonnes and a GVW of 41 tonnes. There are also CF and XF 8x4 FAW tridem trucks available with double-drive and steered trailing axles and gross payload capacities of 27 tonnes.
