Construction Range


The construction sector's a tough place to make a living. In this demanding environment you need every advantage you can get and the CF range of construction vehicles has been designed to reduce your costs and give you all the productivity and performance you need.

Having balanced fuel economy payload and manoeuvrability, we have created a range of vehicles built for real driving efficiency. In either 6x4 or 8x4, DAF's total driveline philosophy ensures a perfect balance between engine gearbox and axle - giving drivers better response, more effective torque, fewer shifts and outstanding performance on or off the road.

Durability

DAF knows just how much punishment construction vehicles have to take throughout their working lives. That’s why the CF range is purpose designed to withstand the rigours of life on-site and maintain maximum productivity an all conditions

6x4 and 8x4 models feature an 8-rod bogie to keep the rear axles geometrically located for stability and maximum articulation. 8x4 models also feature DAF’s ‘non-reactive’ , low-maintenance load compensating suspension system for an even load balance on the front axles and even brake wear on diminishing loads.

  • Straight front axle for a large approach angle and maximum ground clearance.
  • All 8x4 models also come with a radiator protection plate.
  • Impact resistant ‘Lexan’ headlamps with integral indicators
  • Wraparound steel bumper, providing maximum protection against knocks.
  • Reinforced mudguards
  • Vertical exhaust and heat shield to keep it out of harm’s way.
  • High output 80amp alternator  - rapidly charges the heavy duty 140 amp/hour ‘deep cycle’ batteries,
  • Batteries designed to drain more slowly reducing the likelihood of breakdowns due to battery failure.
  • Longer time-based service periods and oil change intervals

For rapid and accurate servicing or repairs, our DAVIE XD diagnostics downloads information directly from your DAF truck’s Vehicle Information Centre. In addition, DAFs unique MultiSupport servicing, repair and maintenance options give you the flexibility to control maintenance costs over the long term. And on the road, you have the reassurance of DAFaid, our legendary roadside assistance service. It takes only 47 minutes to get a vehicle back on the road!
