Comments From The Chairman
“The DAF LF provides the best overall package in the segment of medium-duty trucks designed for urban distribution and municipal services. It offers an excellent view from the cabin, the smallest turning circle in the market, and adds a sturdy design with rugged steel bumpers,” says Michal Štengl, editor-in-chief of TRANSPORT a LOGISTIKA and chairman of the jury. The wide range of extremely efficient power trains and its high payload make the LF ideal for literally any application.
“The Czech industry has a clear unanimous opinion on who the winner is in the segment of construction vehicles,” Štengl continues. “The CF Construction. It is sturdy and ready to face any challenge of operation under tough conditions, while being extremely light and offering high payloads at the same time. New technologies and powerful drivelines, together with extraordinary levels of axle articulation, ensure excellent off-road driving characteristics.”
