ERF Trucks For Sale

3.5 Average

Closed as a marque in 2007, ERF trucks are still the vehicle of choice for some of the UK’s biggest businesses. The used ERF trucks for sale on are still reliable when it comes to local and regional distribution and ERF’s heavy goods vehicles remain popular on the second-hand market as they provide great value for money.

ERF’s heavy trucks were built for purpose in Munich, with lighter vehicles built at its factory in Sandbach, Cheshire until 2002. The final range of ERF lorries were based on trucks produced by ERF’s owner MAN, which means that buyers looking for ERF models newer than 2007 should take a look at Truck Locator’s MAN page.

Click on the dates in the timeline below to view interesting events in ERF's history
ERF Established
ERF is established by Edwin Richard Foden, whose name the company bears. Foden designed the first steam wagon to run on steel tyre wheels in 1898, which was a huge success and greatly influenced the design of future trucks. Foden, with the help of his son, Dennis, designed and built the first diesel lorry, which went into production as the first ERF truck in 1933.
Founder Passes Away
Edwin Richard Foden passes away at the age of 80 and Dennis becomes Managing Director of ERF. The company goes public four years later.
ERF EC Range Introduced
The C Series is introduced, based on the B Series from 1974 came with a choice of Cummins engines
E Series Launched
The E Series could be fitted with either a Cummins or Rolls Royce (to become Perkins) The model numbers denoted the engine size, for example the E10 would be the Cummins L10 10-litre version.
EC Range Launched
The EC range is introduced in May 1993 and soon becomes ERF’s highest selling product ever. The company invests £14 million in order to develop the new tractor and rigid truck range.
ERF Bought by Western Star
The company is purchased by Canadian group Western Star for £27.4 million, with some ERFs bearing the Western Star badge in Australia and other countries.
ERF Bought by MAN
ERF again changes hands, this time purchased by MAN, a leading German truck manufacturer.
ECS and ECX Launched
Two new models - the first with steel cabs are launched
ECT Launched
The Austrian manufactured ERF ECT launched at Motor Show
ERF Closed
The ERF marque is retired completely.

ERF was purchased by MAN AG from the Canadian group Western Star in 2000, after increasing pressure from the PACCAR-owned DAF. MAN closed the Cheshire factory in 2002 and relocated ERF’s operations to its own factories in Germany and Austria, with ERF continuing to operate as a marque in the UK until 2007. The MAN badge was used in other markets long before this point and the retirement of the ERF brand was more about consolidation than the standard of the trucks, which are still some of the most reliable and efficient ones on the market.

In fact, ERF has maintained a reputation for quality throughout its history, opting to buy in the best parts on the market rather than produce them in house – apart from the distinctive cabs and chassis. ERFs are still amongst the most popular British lorries ever produced, being cost-effective and still comfortable.

Which ERF truck is right for me?

ERF E Series

Trucks in the E Series were named by their engine size, with the models available being the E9 (9ltr), E10, E12 and E14. The same naming convention was continued after the launch of the EC series.

ERF EC Series

The EC Series was the last true British design from ERF, with subsequent trucks coming in the form of rebadged MAN trucks from Austria. The EC Series is arguably the best choice for local and regional drivers who specifically want a British truck. It’s worth bearing in mind, though, that the newer ECs did begin to incorporate more MAN parts, which, while still of high quality, were produced in Austria and Germany.

ERF ES series

The ERF ES series of tippers and tankers is one of the most popular in its class and is a good choice for local and regional haulage.
