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 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.
