Ash wastes no time and orders more Daf CFs

Ash Waste Services has ordered a further two Daf CFs after taking delivery of four 32-tonne 8-wheel CFs with Heil Farid rear-end-loader bodies and Moba weighing systems for the company’s trade waste operation.

The rear-steer 8x2 axle configuration was selected to provide improved manoeuvrability.

“I’ve dealt with a good number of truck dealers over many years,” said Phil Mottershead, transport compliance manager at Ash Group, “but Imperial Commercials [in Wrexham] stands out. The aftersales support is second to none”.

In conjunction with Moba, the new Dafs are fitted with waste management software from Dataset Solutions, allowing the new Daf vehicles to identify specific ‘chipped’ bins and then, in real time, relay their weight and cost directly to trade waste customers.

Mottershead said while the group runs Volvos too and has just ordered some Mercedes-Benz Arocs hook loaders, when it came to its refuse fleet Daf's trucks remained the favoured option. 

Based in Wrexham, Ash Waste Services has recently opened a new site in Widnes. The company operates throughout North Wales, the North West and south to Staffordshire and the Midlands.
