On these pages you will find all rigid trucks for sale at Truckpages. This is regardless of weight, axle configuration and body type. A rigid truck is everything that does not have a fifth wheel and tow a semi trailer. The list can be as diverse as a 7.5 tonne box truck to a 32 tonne bulk tipper. It is a good place to start your search if you want to ensure you do not have to trawl through all the tractor units, trailers, vans and plant on the main listings search. Use the filters to refine your rigid truck search further. We suggest selecting one (or more) body types that you are interested in.
The most popular brand of rigid truck in the UK is without doubt DAF rigid trucks – especially their lightweight LF range and their middleweight CF range. You can tell roughly the gross weight of a rigid by looking at the number of axles. If it has two axles it cannot weigh more than 18 tonnes loaded without some kind of trailer towed behind. Next check the size of the wheels – the larger the wheels and tyres the heavier the weight. An 18 tonne rigid will have the same size tyres as a full sized 44 tonne tractor unit, whilst a 7.5 tonner will have much smaller ones. If there are three axles, chances are the rigid will be a 26 tonner (although it could be anywhere between 18 and 26 tonnes). Four axles make it a 32 tonne rigid.

We are seeing increasing numbers of DAF’s new generation XF and XG cabs on the UK’s roads. Now it is the turn of the latest XDC cab to roll out in numbers. Now there is a multi axle version available for tipping use, they should become a commonplace sight on the building sites of the UK. One of the first eight wheeler XDC trucks has headed off to Staffordshire-based waste disposal, skip hire and bulk haulage operator, Potteries Waste. The model is an XDC 450 FAD 8x4 tipper and joins a DAF-exclusive fleet of more than 20 vehicles. Potteries Waste…
The good news for the environment is that a national food wholesaler and distributor, Reynolds Catering Supplies, has put a new, zero-emissions DAF LF Electric at 19-tonne GVW into service for multi-drop deliveries around Leeds. However, the order also included no fewer than 29 diesel DAF trucks. The truck will be saving around 70 to 80 tonnes of CO2 every year, but think of the CO2 reductions from thirty of these trucks. We all understand that the electric trucks are still in their infancy, but they will need to grow up fast at this weight range, as they will be…
If you are investing in specifying and building an expensive crane truck it is important to make sure that the chassis is the right specification and comes from a premium brand.

Supplied by Michael Walsh, Sales Executive at McCarthy Commercials, the new FH is powered by Volvo’s D13K engine, delivering up to 420 hp and 2,100 Nm of…
