DAF is expanding its new Euro 6 series with a full range of four-axle CF and XFrigids and tractors for special and heavy duty transport applications. DAF underlines to have a tailored solution for every transport application.

Last year, DAF commenced production of a wide range of two- and three-axle tractors and rigids with single or double drive for its new Euro 6 CF and XF models. The new four-axle vehicles also have a wide choice of configurations so that vehicle specifications can always be tailored. In addition to versions with two front and two rear axles, configurations with a single front axle and three rear axles (tridem) are also available.

The CF range now includes four-axle rigids with two steered front axles (8 or 9 tonnes) and, behind the driven axle, a dual-mounted trailing axle (FAC) or a steered trailing rear axle (FAX).

The configuration with a 10-tonne trailing axle offers a GVW of up to 37 tonnes, very useful for transporting heavy industrial machines and for shipping- and waste containers, as well as for bulk and tank transport.

The four-axle Euro 6 CF with steered trailing rear axle (7.5 tonnes) also guarantees GVWs of up to 37 tonnes. The extra manoeuvrability make it ideal for distributing construction materials and allowing a heavy loading crane to be mounted behind the cab.

8x2 rigids with tridem

Four-axle Euro 6 rigids with tridem are now available, for special applications where extra high load capacity behind the rear axles is required, for instance when transporting heavy containers or waste containers.

New in the Euro 6 CF series is a configuration (FAQ) where the tridem consists of a steered leading rear axle (8 tonnes), a driven rear axle (13 tonnes) and a steered trailing axle (7.5 tonnes) for a maximum GVW of 36 tonnes and excellent manoeuvrability and yard-friendliness. That is why the CF FAQ is often used as a heavy refuse collector, gulley emptier or for transporting heavy containers.

Available for both the CF and XF is four-axle rigid with tridem that consists of a 7.5-tonne steered leading rear axle, a 13-tonne driven rear axle and a 10-tonne dual-mounted trailing axle (FAK). This allows a GVW of 35.5 tonnes. This FAK is exceptionally well-suited for heavy-duty use within the shipping and waste container transport sector.
