Used DAF CF Tractor Units for Sale

3.5 Average

The DAF CF range is comprehensively configurable, but if you would prefer to pick a separate tractor unit to attach to the body of your choice, then this is an entirely viable option thanks to the number of quality used models which are available. Sitting just below the DAF XF in terms of size, a CF tractor unit is still a serious bit of kit designed for long-distance haulage and distribution duties across a number of industries.

The 40 and 44 tonne units offer room for drivers to work, sleep and spend their downtime. And with efficient engines, reliable mechanical elements and a distinctive aesthetic style, there is something to like about every CF truck on the road at the moment. So choose a used unit if this represents the most cost-effective option for your organisation.

While a DAF CF tractor unit may look good for a commercial vehicle of this kind, it has also been designed around a need to improve the aerodynamic qualities of what could essentially be seen as a moving brick that has to blast its way through vast quantities of air.

Recent models have been equipped with new mudguards, skirts and fenders to force air to flow around the truck, while the intake for the engine ensures that cooling has been optimised, meaning that fuel consumption is lessened when on the move. Air is even corralled by the vents and deflectors to reduce the build-up of dirt on the exterior of the CF’s cab, which is a clever touch that few other manufacturers have thought of, making the driver’s job even easier.

CF tractor units can come with either a 4x2 or 6x2 axle set-up, with most models benefiting from axles which are lightweight to cut fuel costs but still strong enough to handle heavy loads over long distances. Air suspension is a bonus found on newer models, making for a smoother ride for the driver and the contents of the trailer which is attached. Alloy fuel tanks are often a feature of this range, making sure that there is enough fuel on board to see the truck through a lengthy trip without having to add any extra weight to the chassis.

Sleeper cabs in the CF tractor unit range are built to accommodate the needs of the driver rather than making them wrestle with unwieldy controls in a cramped environment. And appealing and intuitive instrument panel on the dash, along with integrated controls on the steering wheel for various functions of the radio and CD player, help the driver take to the road without any fuss. Meanwhile, manual, semi-auto and full automatic gearboxes are present on used CF tractor units, letting you pick the type which will be most appropriate. The fuel-saving capabilities of the Euro 5 and 6 PACCAR engines of recent DAF CF models are worthy of note, so if a model has an MOT and a service history to support its credentials, you can buy second-hand and get all the benefits of a new purchase.
