DAF LF Series

The perfect partner for distribution


Agile in heavy traffic, easy to get in and out of, and low curb weights for class-leading payloads. With a tight turning radius and easy manoeuvrability, the DAF LF series with GVW’s ranging from 8 to 21 tonnes is the perfect partner for urban and regional distribution.
 


Designed to deliver
 
DAF’s LF series offers superb manoeuvrability, easy cab access, low kerb weights for class-leading payloads, comfort, performance and fuel efficiency. The ideal distribution truck, with GVWs from 8 to 21 tonnes. Smooth and comfortable for the driver. Reliable, flexible and economical for the operator. Furthermore, the modern design of the LF reflects your company’s image. The DAF LF series is not only ideally suited to town and country, it will also meet the needs of longer trips.


Inviting interior
 
Open the door and you immediately experience the quality of the LF interior. Indeed, the styling and standard of finish more resemble that of a luxury passenger car. The colour schemes and materials used mean that the LF cab offers a pleasant, comfortable working environment.
 
The dashboard and modern instrument panel, the adjustable steering wheel with integrated controls and optional airbag, and the well positioned handles and switches, all demonstrate how the creation of an ergonomic working environment was a key target in the design process of the LF series.
 
The wide, deep windscreen and narrow pillars provide excellent visibility. The four mirror layout provides a larger field of vision for greater safety. The LF has four-point cab mountings to maximize comfort. Noise levels are low, resulting in less driver fatigue and more safety.

 


The comfort of power
 
The LF Series is equipped with four- and six-cylinder PACCAR engines, developed to meet the latest Euro 4 and Euro 5 emission standards. Larger displacement in all versions result in up to 20% more power and torque, whilst fuel consumption is reduced. The 4.5 and 6.7 litre engines are designed to offer high levels of efficiency, reliability and durability.
 
140 to 285 efficient horses
 
The LF Series offers a wide choice of power ratings to suit every application in the most efficient way. The 4.5 litre four cylinder PACCAR FR engine is available with outputs of 140 hp, 160 hp or 185 hp and torque levels of 550 Nm, 600 Nm and 700 Nm respectively. The 6.7 litre six cylinder PACCAR GR engine offers maximum outputs of 220 hp, 250 hp or 285 hp with corresponding torque figures of 850 Nm, 950 Nm, or 1,020 Nm. Importantly, the maximum available torque is available from as low as 1,200 rpm, resulting in greater flexibility and less gear shifting.
 
EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) engine
 
Especially for inner-city distribution, there is an EEV 160 hp version of the LF available in which low EEV emission values are achieved, by optimal combustion, without the need of a soot filter.
 


 

 

Designed for high payloads
 
The chassis layout of the LF and positioning of components has been optimized, to minimize vehicle weight and optimize the available space for auxiliary equipment. More payload and lower costs per kilometre were the design criteria for the chassis too.
 
The LF-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 ideal base for any superstructure. To make the bodybuilder’s job as easy as possible, the main frame members are pre-drilled to ensure easy mounting of the body.

 


Dedicated to productivity
 
Trucks like the DAF LF series are used in many different applications, from urban and regional distribution to long distance lightweight transport and special applications such as roadsweepers, refuse collectors or fire engines. This versatility requires an extensive vehicle range to achieve greater productivity in every transport application.
 
Fit for purpose
 
To satisfy as many distribution needs as possible, the LF is available in many different gross vehicle weights, various wheelbases and axle configurations - including tractors and a three-axle rigid with steered trailing axle - and engine power options, as well as the choice of Day Cab or Sleeper Cab.
 
The LF45 is available in GVWs of between 7,5 and 12 tonnes, whereas the LF55 covers GVWs from 12 up to 21 tonnes, while offering a maximum train weight of up to 32 tonnes. In all versions, the low kerb weight ensures best-in-class payload for the highest productivity.
 
PTO programme
 
In view of the wide range of applications of vehicles in the DAF LF45 and LF55 class, there is also a demand for a PTO in this segment. For example for a fridge unit, tipper or crane drive unit. Again the LF provides tailor-made solutions with a wide range of PTO options.
