Used DAF LF Dropsides for Sale

3.5 Average

A used DAF LF dropside truck is not difficult to locate thanks to the prolific production of this firm as well as the popularity of its vehicles amongst commercial operators. And its dropside bodies come in a range of configurations, some of which are good for all-purpose use, while others offer equipment to make them a little more specialised.

The choice of wheelbases is similarly comprehensive, especially on the second-hand market, where models no longer in production can be found alongside newer stable mates. If you are looking for a compact and manoeuvrable dropside truck, then the DAF LF range should accommodate your needs.

New and nearly new DAF LF dropside trucks come with engines that are built to the standards set by the Euro 5 and 6 regulations governing emissions for greener operation and also improving fuel efficiency by a significant amount. So if you are going to be doing a lot of miles, the savings can really start to stack up nicely.

The PACCAR engines with four or six cylinders are reliable and require minimal maintenance, which helps enhance the appeal of used models that can have a lot of miles on the clock and still be capable of covering many more without faltering.

The type of dropside body you want on a DAF LF truck depends on what you want to do with it. A standard rigid dropside body can be used to transport equipment and goods or collect and carry loose materials, bricks or any number of other products. There are dropside DAF models which have been adapted to feature curtainsider covers that keep the rear space weathertight, which could be an advantage. Some trucks will even come with built-in cranes to allow for the easy transfer of various materials to the loadspace. And as you would expect, it is important to check the state of the body of the vehicle to see that its construction remains solid and any extra features are in good working order. Smooth hydraulics, sturdy catches and an unscathed chassis are all to be desired.

The state of the cab is similarly important, as is assessing the type of equipment which is included. Some DAF LF dropsiders will feature day or crew cabs, while others offer full sleeper set-ups with one or two bunks. Although the interior looks stylish, DAF does not mess about when it comes to picking materials, and so its working vehicles are always easy to clean and maintain, even if they are used regularly. Newer models may feature benefits such as adjustable seats and steering column, an uncluttered and informative dash layout along with a powerful ventilation system which means that the interior is always at a consistent and comfortable temperature.

DAF LF dropsiders can weigh between 7.5 tonnes and 18 tonnes, with body lengths varying between 14 and 23 feet or more, depending on the specifications requested by the original owner. And with the manufacturer’s knowledge of what its customers need, you should find that there is very little to complain about, even in used models. Sellers that welcome inspection of second-hand DAF LF vehicles should be a priority.

And this prolific and popular manufacturer is well represented on the second-hand market, with models across various weight categories and with... Read more

DAF Curtainsiders

When looking at DAF curtainsider trucks, you have to assess what combination of cab and body is going to fulfil your requirements. And with used models you have the additional duty to check that a vehicle is in good shape before buying it, because the state of a second-hand truck can vary wildly even between ostensibly identical units. Curtainsider trucks from DAF encompass a range of operating... Read more

A DAF tipper truck can be a sensible investment for a variety of organisations, because when it comes to moving heavy loads of rubble, earth or anything else, there are few vehicles that can match the models from this manufacturer in terms of price and performance. Built to withstand the toughest conditions across a range of construction projects, DAF tippers feature durable bodies, reliable... Read more

DAF CF Tippers

DAF has been building CF tippers for some time, and this means that the used market is filled with potential purchases for any interested buyers. These tippers generally fit into the 26- to 32-tonne weight bracket and feature 6x4 or 8x4 axle configurations to cope with off-road use as well as cruising on the tarmac. Tipper bodies built from steel or alloy materials and featuring insulation are... Read more

DAF CF Tractor Unit

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... Read more

DAF LF Box Vans

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.

DAF LF Curtainsiders

The DAF LF series of curtainsiders can be counted on to complete distribution work with minimal effort, making use of the latest Euro 6 engines so that urban delivery routes can be completed efficiently and the stop-start nature of driving on congested roads does not hit fuel economy too hard.

DAF LF Tippers

DAF LF tippers are very common and very popular in the construction industry. But the standard tipper body is not the only configuration available on this platform, meaning you can select more specialised alternatives if this suits your operation. DAF LF tippers are built for everything from refuse collection to land management. And since the trucks are endowed with a smaller turning circle than... Read more

DAF XF Tractor Unit

A DAF XF tractor unit comes from a range that can boast some market-leading figures relating to cab space and fuel efficiency. And this is why a used XF model can make long-haul journeys fly by at a lower cost than many of its rivals. While DAF is far from being the only manufacturer in the long-distance road transport market, the XF is an enduring reminder that it might be the best in the... Read more

Mercedes-Benz Axor Dropsides

Mercedes-Benz Axor trucks with dropside bodies can be bought second-hand by anyone who wants this type of truck to add to their organisation’s fleet. The Axor has been ousted from this German manufacturer’s current range but was still a significant mid-level player until relatively recently. This means the used models have plenty more to offer drivers and come equipped with modern... Read more
