DAF has built LF box vans to aid the distribution capabilities of various businesses for many years. And the used market is home to many models from this range, encompassing a range of body features, engines and wheelbases. While long-haul trucks are built for optimal efficiency on motorways, an LF box truck is better suited to taking on narrow urban streets, congested dual carriageways and twisting country lanes.
Because the LF family is so extensive, there are usually a lot of different second-hand models on offer. This makes it important to get a through rundown of the specifications to make the selection process easier.
There are three different cabs available on a DAF LF box van, with the standard day cab sitting alongside an extended day cab and a full sleeper cab. Some used models offer double-bunk sleeper configurations, meaning that they are surprisingly well suited to long-haul use in spite of the relatively compact size of the truck itself.

For the current LF generation, the width of all cabs is kept to 2.13 metres, which is intended to allow for ease of movement through tight gaps. Since the turning circle is also small, a DAF LF box van will have no trouble in towns and cities.
Cab comfort levels are generally good, even on older models that may not benefit from all the technology that is featured in modern LF box vans. Visibility is also excellent, and some vans will come with electric mirrors and even reversing cameras, which are a welcome sight for safety-conscious organisations and operators.
The driveline of a DAF LF box van will usually be supplied with a PACCAR engine, the latest iteration of which has achieved a Euro 6 rating for emissions. Service intervals are moved up to 60,000 miles thanks to the design innovations this offers, which is something that used buyers should consider as an asset. Manual and auto gearboxes are featured on various second-hand LF box vans, with efficient shifting allowing for further improvements to fuel efficiency.
From 7.5 tonnes to 13 tonnes, LF box vans are a capable alternative to the CF and XF ranges from DAF. And there are various body additions that can be found on used models, including a rear tail lift and roller shutter. Some models will have sliding side panels to increase the access points available on the body. And the tail lift mechanisms will usually tuck away neatly so that they do not add to the length of the vehicle. You should be aware that not every second-hand LF box van will necessarily have a tail lift present. And if one is on board, it will need to b tested to ensure that it works as advertised.
A used DAF LF box van which has all the paperwork covering its service history, as well as being able to stand up under inspection, will make a good investment. The lightweight but strong chassis, modern engines and generous cab space are all advantages of this range.
