DAF CF 85 tipper grab - Used Truck of the Day

DAD CF grab

The Commercial Motor Used Truck of the Day is this 2014 DAF CF tipper grab from Williams Truck Centre.

The eight-wheeler has covered an almost unbelievable 100,000km in its life so far, and despite the general appearance, is said to be in an excellent condition. It’s already got a fresh MoT on it and is backed up by a six-month warranty.

Fitted with an Atlas grab crane, the CF 85 360hp also has a Massey Maxim tipper body as well as hydraulic landing legs.

Located just outside of Liverpool, this CF tipper grab could be yours for £42,000.

Sydenhams purchases a new DAF XF from Adams Morey

Timber and builders merchants Sydenhams has taken delivery of a DAF XF 480 Space Cab, its first ever new tractor purchase.

The truck, which joins a 64-strong predominantly DAF fleet, was bought from Adams Morey.

It will be based at Sydenhams’ new Glastonbury branch, and will be used to deliver timber products and building materials from as far afield as Penzance and North Wales.

Jamie Thompson, group transport manager at Sydenhams, explained that the XF will be coupled to a tri-axle trailer, one of a handful Sydenhams inherited when it purchased the Glastonbury site.

He said: “We ran a trailer refurbishment program of the inherited trailers where we had them re-sprayed and the fitment of new curtains. They now sit in our colours and livery, which we think looks very smart.”
