Attractive design: sturdy yet friendly
Important for a truck that operates in city areas: a friendly appearance. The design of a distribution truck has to be sturdy as well. The DAF Design team combined both. The LF exterior however offers more than just a great look. It contributes to efficiency, uptime, comfort and safety.
Three compact cab variants
The DAF LF series is available in three cab variants:
- a day cab with a length of 160 cm
- an extended day cab with a length of 200 cm
- a single bed sleeper cab with a total length of 200 cm
The cabs have a compact width of 2,130 mm, which benefits the maneuverability in urban distribution, especially in combination with the small turning circle (wheel angle 50 to 53 °, depending on the cab variant).
Depending on the model and country specification, the cab is mounted on the chassis with flexible rubber V-mountings on the front and with coil springs with integrated shock absorbers at the rear or with coil springs on all four points. Coil springs are standard on versions with a sleeper cab, as well as the 18-tonne variant and various tractor models.
