Waste glass purchaser and recycler URM (UK), has taken delivery of seven new specialist Daf multi-wheel rigids for its South Kirkby-based fleet.
The order includes a CF 440 FAQ chassis - an 8x2 tridem configuration with lift-and-steer capability on the second and fourth axles - with a double-skinned, half-tailgate bulk tipper body from Weightlifter and HMF crane.
There are also four CF 440 FA 4x2 drawbar skip-loader outfits, a CF 400 FAX eight-wheel rear-steer bulk tipper and a CF 370 FAN 6x2 rear-steer tipper with crane. URM’s 36-strong all-Daf fleet comprises 44-tonne artics, skip-loader draw-bars and roll-on-roll-off units.
Fleet engineer Dave Bellamy praised the close support the company receives from local Daf dealers F&G Commercials and Imperial Commercials.
“We get exactly the right truck for our requirements, they know what we want and it’s a real partnership”, he said.
“Our latest Daf tridem is ideal for collections from pubs, clubs and supermarkets in the area, and is proving even more manoeuvrable than the existing rear-steer Daf eight-wheeler on the fleet.”
