On the lookout: Top beavertail available at C&W Commercials


C&W Commercials is one of the largest independent commercial vehicle dealers in the UK. A family business formed in 2002, it now specialises in the sale of used DAF trucks to the UK and overseas. In Wednesbury we found a 2013 (63-plate) DAF FAX CF85.360 with 353,000km on the clock.

Sales manager Darren Garland says: “With a split fold ramp, winch, fall arrest and rear lift-axle/steering-axle, this truck is great for doing what it is designed for.

The vehicle has a fall arrest system on the body, which is essential for health and safety on certain sites. The truck features a split-fold beavertail ramp that allows vehicles with a low ground clearance easier access.”

This 8x2 delivers 360hp through a ZF AS-Tronic gearbox, and it is fitted with a 330-litre tank. The truck has front steel and rear air suspension and a Shawtrack body that is in good condition and fully functioning. It also has a Warrior Samurai 4,000kg electric remote-controlled winch on the front of the body, amber beacons on top of the gantry, and a reverse camera. The day cab has a radio, air conditioning and a multifunction steering wheel, and is finished in silver with a black body. The paint and bodywork condition is fine. The tyres and tread are in good order with at least 65% remaining.

The vehicle will be supplied with a full health check. It has had one previous owner and been maintained to a decent standard. It is MoT’d until June 2019 and has a six-month driveline warranty.
