DAF Tractor Units for Sale (248)

DAF are the UK’s runaway market leader. As you would expect therefore, DAF tractor units are extremely popular on the UK’s used truck market. The new generation XG and XG+ is the DAF range of  tractor units to have for long distance work – the recently redesigned and aerodynamic cabs make it the premium choice of tractor unit. The successful XF model continues but sharing the new generation cab with the XG, albeit in slightly smaller, everyday form, whilst the practical DAF CF Tractor unit is typically used for more local operations – although this cab is also available as a Space Cab so should not be dismissed out of hand – think of the extra payload available! Both models can be specified as 4×2, 6×2 or 6×4 tractor units, although by far and away the most common on the UK’s roads and in Truckpages for sale is the 6×2 version.

If you are hoping to enter into any of the low emission zones now or in the near future, then you need to consider buying DAF tractor units made after 2013.  These not the XF105 and CF85 models, but the versions distinguishable by the larger headlights and the more simple model descriptions, for example XF460 (note the missing ‘105’).

These later models are all at Euro 6.

It is worth explaining the chassis layouts available and the extra terms given by DAF for their tractor unit chassis. Read more below.

Popular DAF Tractor Unit Models

Older Models

There are still plenty of DAF XF105 tractor units available for sale – remember none of these are at the Euro 6 emissions standards so beware if buying these for operation near a low emission zone like the ULEZ.

Previous Generation XF

If you are after a Euro 6 DAF tractor unit then forget the XF105 – it has to be a post 2013 model now called just ‘XF’. Most popular amongst these is the XF510 – recently updated to the XF530 with the earlier, pre 2018 model fleet option being the XF460.

The CF Tractor unit was better known as the CF85 until 2014 where, like the XF, it lost a few numbers and now is simply known as the CF followed by the power output.  The most popular of these Euro 6 versions are the CF440 of the CF85.410 in old money.

New Generation DAF Tractor Units

Appearing on the used market in larger numbers are DAF tractor units with the new generation XG, XG+ and XF cabs that have been designed according to the revised regulations on cab sizes. This means larger cabs as long as the additional length benefits the aerodynamic performance of the tractor units. These cabs really broke new ground when launched and have proved highly successful in terms of sales numbers and improved fuel consumption. The new DAF XG or XF tractor unit should be your choice of second hand tractor unit if you can find on e and afford one!

Explaining the DAF Tractor Unit Naming Conventions

So, we know that a DAF XF460 is a 460 horsepower DAF truck with an XF cab.  Most of these types of trucks were sold as tractor units – so why are there always more letters involved when advertised by a (knowledgeable) DAF dealer?

It’s all about the axle configuration.

Here goes an explanation:

  • FT = 4×2
  • FTT = 6×4
  • FTG = 6×2 with steering midlift axle
  • FTN = 6×2 with steering rearlift axle
  • FTP = 6×2 with smaller, fixed midlift axle
  • FTR = 6×2 with single mounted trailing axle
  • FTM = 8×4 (2 drive and 2 steer axles)
  • FTS = 6×2 with twin wheels on extra rear axle (looks like a 6×4 but only the first rear axle drives)
