Turners (Soham) has added its 600th specialised Daf FTP to its fleet.

The 440hp XF tractor with a lightweight mid-lift axle joins Turners’ 1,750-strong fleet. Turners is believed to be the largest operator of Daf FTP trucks worldwide.

The Daf, purchased via dealership Chassis Cab, will cover more than 100,000km a year. 

Tim King, group fleet engineer, said: “It is probably the best lightweight truck ever.

"They are so flexible that they are the optimum truck in weight-sensitive work – and that’s why we are proud to be one of the top buyers worldwide.”
