Widnes-based bulk powder and general haulier McGuire Transport has taken delivery of its first new DAF for eight years, an XG+ 530 FT.
In addition to some general haulage and container distribution from the Port of Liverpool, the flagship 4x2 tractor will be used to transport food-grade powders across the continent.
Company owner and driver of the new truck Mick McGuire, said: “Though I’d not owned a DAF for several years, I was keen to check out the XG+ after it was unveiled last year. The exceptional value for money offered by the big DAF is impressive when compared to the competition, as was the reasonable delivery lead time. I’m not averse to trying new things and I think it’s healthy to shop around from time to time, so I placed an order through local DAF dealer North West Trucks.”
He praised the truck’s external appearance and spacious cab, describing the overall fit and finish as excellent.
“In terms of driver comfort, the lower dashboard helps dramatically with visibility and the swivel seat is by far the best I’ve ever sat in,” he added.
- DAF has built 10,000 New Generation trucks since production started last winter.
