Contract hire and rental company NRG Fleet Services, based in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, has taken delivery of a new Daf LF 6x2 rigid urban refuse truck.

The truck was built as a 4x2 16-tonner before being converted to 3-axle configuration by axle specialist Estepe, increasing its weight to 22.5 tonnes.

The LF, which has a payload of 10 tonnes, has a 5-speed Allison automatic transmission and Geesinknorba GPM4 refuse collection body. It is Clocscompliant and equipped with an extra nearside window panel, sidescan technology and Cyclear system from ISS, which alerts both driver and cyclist when the two are in close proximity.

NRG sales director Alan Ellison said: “For urban refuse collection, it strikes the optimum balance of weight and manoeuvrability.”
