DAF CF series

Built to perform


Regional, national or international transport. Smooth roads or rough terrain. It’s all the same to the DAF CF series, available either as tractor or rigid chassis in two, three or four axle models.

Unbeatable driving characteristics

Built to handle the demands of intensive use, this multifunctional chassis is a top performer in every application – from bulk or tank transport to heavy-duty work in the building industry, from garbage collection to general distribution.

The CF Series is characterized by superb driving properties and excellent manoeuvrability. A great deal of attention has been devoted to optimally match chassis design, steering, brakes and suspension. This, together with the high torque characteristics of the engines and comfortable cab design, makes the CF Series a joy to drive under all circumstances.

Comfort and convenience come as standard

Such a wide range of applications asks for different cab variants. The CF therefore comes with a choice of three cabs: a Day Cab, a Sleeper Cab and the extra spacious Space Cab, offering an interior height of 2.23 metres. All cab variants combine compact external dimensions with a surprisingly spacious interior and offer easy access, excellent visibility and an ergonomic working environment.

The CF cab is clearly designed around the driver.

Once inside the cab, the sense of roominess is evident, accentuated by the large windscreen and side windows. The intelligent use of space and high-quality materials in warm yet practical colours, creates an ergonomic environment that is both productive and pleasant.

From the fully adjustable air-sprung driver’s seat with integral headres and optional adjustable lumbar support and seat-belt tensioners, the driver has excellent access to all controls. The seats mould to the body to provide fatigue-reducing support. Extensive seat adjustment, combined with the two way adjustable steering wheel ensures the optimum driving position for drivers of all sizes.


The power to perform

The versatility of the CF is underlined by the wide choice of engines. The CF65 is equipped with the 6.7 litre PACCAR GR engine. The CF75 is powered by the 9.2 litre PACCAR PR engine, while the CF85 features the 12.9 litre PACCAR MX engine as used in the XF105. Three state-of-the-art power plants, offering power ratings from 220 hp up to 510 hp, to meet individual requirements. And all of them equipped with DAF SCR Technology for a bright future.

All PACCAR engines are designed to offer the highest standards of economy, reliability and durability. The 6-cylinder, in-line engines with smart high-pressure injection systems are cleaner and deliver high power and torque at low engine speeds.


A multifunctional chassis for a versatile vehicle

The robust CF-chassis is made of high-quality steel, resulting in an exceptionally strong but lightweight chassis for high payloads. It is completely flat, making it the perfect base for any superstructure. To make the body builder’s job as easy as possible, the main frame members are pre-drilled to ensure easy mounting of the body. A Body Builder’s Module (BBM) can also be provided to facilitate communication between the electric systems of vehicle and body.

Smart chassis design

chassis shape, layout and positioning of components is designed to minimize vehicle weight and maximize available space. Many components, such as air tanks and other brake components, are mounted on the inside of the chassis frame, leaving ample space for the fitment of crane legs, twist locks, hydraulic tanks, tool boxes and other additional equipment. The compactly designed SCR after-treatment system, including the AdBlue tank, leaves sufficient free space for large fuel tanks of up to 1,500 litres on a 4 x 2 tractor unit.


Fit for the job

The CF has compact external cab dimensions for excellent manoeuvrability in tight spaces. The low kerb weight for high payloads, sturdy design, powerful engines and broad range of chassis and axle configurations make the CF suitable for a multitude of applications, ranging from inner-city delivery and special tasks such as fire engines or tankers to construction vehicles and long-distance transport.

Axle configurations

The CF is available in a wide variety of wheelbases and axle configurations. The CF65 is available as a 4 x 2 truck chassis in a large number of wheel base variants. The CF75 and CF85 series offer many different axle configurations, ranging from two-axle tractors and rigids to three- or four-axle vehicles, single- or double driven. Trailing axles with single- or double wheels, a pusher axle as well as steered second- and trailingaxles are just a few examples of the wide choice in axle configurations.
