DAF launches new lift-up axle model at Brisbane Truck Show

Bianca DeMarco - Wednesday, June 07, 2017

PACCAR Australia has used the Brisbane Truck Show to give industry a sneak peek at the new DAF FAP LF 280 model, touted for release later in 2017.

Showcased alongside the newly launched 510hp version of the DAF CF85, the new LF variant comes with a lift-up axle to ensure it can handle heavier loads while still providing fuel and tyre wear benefits when running with lesser loads. The 'pusher' design is said to be especially useful when negotiating uneven surfaces, such as spoon drains.

Also on the technology front, the 280HP PACCAR engine is backed by a ZF nine-speed manual transmission. The LF also has a comprehensive suite of braking and stability controls on board, including EBS, ABS and ASR.

With its modern European styling and 'optimal manoeuvrability', PACCAR Australia said the new model was ideal for regional and city distribution work.

The unit's low chassis weight is meant to provide additional payloads, while DAF also placed value on easy cab access and car-like driving characteristics in a move to align the LF 280 with the current e-commerce and parcel delivery boom.
