Metal recycler Alwin Limited has taken delivery of a new DAF XF 530 FAW a rare 8x4 rigid with XF cab.
The new unit, the company’s third XF rigid supplied Motus Commercials, has an XF Comfort Cab and has been specified with a 10-tonne front axle for improved capacity and steered trailing axle as well as an automatic rear-axle lifting which help to improve the turning circle and manoeuvrability.
David Rowlingson, Alwin Limited MD said: “We’ve continually purchased DAF’s for our fleet as we trust the brand and the superb back-up we get from our local dealer Motus Commercials Halesowen is an important consideration. We chose the XF cab as our drivers do a lot of long-distance work and a larger cab with all the features that come with it provides the ultimate driver comfort.”
The XF FAW has also been fitted with a Hiab Multilift hook loader and Multilift Hook Top Sheeter and has an additional light bar and air horns.
“The truck is a head turner out on the road and the tridem chassis with double driven 1360 tandem axle provides ultimate traction when operating off-road,” Rowlingson added.
