DAF expands its Euro VI truck range with a complete range of three-axle rigids with trailing, second steered or tandem axles. The air suspension has been completely redeveloped, enabling the applications of swap-body systems, such as the BDF, which is popular in Germany.
DAFs FAR chassis has a 7.5-tonne trailing axle to give a maximum load capacity of 13 tonnes. Consequently, these CF and XF models are meant for national and international refrigerated and frozen transport and are also particularly suited to volume and large-volume transport.
The FAS models are equipped with a 10-tonne trailing axle. The double mounting ensures a higher degree of stability, important for applications with a relatively high centre of gravity, such as with the transport of containers or livestock. The CF and XF 6×2 FAR and FAS are available with wheel bases from 4.20 to 5.90 metres.
Also new within the CF and XF Euro 6 program are the versions with a rear steered axle (FAN) for better manoeuvrability. The new Euro VI CF FAN is meant for use within urban areas, such as for refuse collection or the distribution of beverages.
In addition to a range of variants with rear steered axle, the new CF rigids will now also be produced with second steered axles (FAG). These are specially designed for applications that require both high load capacities combined with excellent yard-friendliness, such as refuse collectors with a rear loader or vehicles for milk collection. A steering axle with a maximum technical load capacity of 7.5 tonnes is fitted in front of the 13-tonne driven axle.
Customers can choose from Euro 6 eleven and thirteen litre engines.
