The CF is the most popular model of DAF tuck converted for use as a crane truck. These Euro 6 models are able to travel inside the low emission zones - for the older models then search under the LF55 crane trucks.
A favourite of builders Merchants big and small, the large groups have tended to favour DAF trucks over the years.
This is why you will still find plenty of older, pre-Euro 6 CF75 models on Truckpages.
Our Verdict - DAF CF Euro 6
If you can afford them, however, it is always best to opt for the Euro 6 for UK operation as it will make your truck purchase more future proof.
There are more DAF LF Box trucks for sale at Truckpages than any other body type. The LF is made into twice as many box trucks as the second most popular, the curtainsider.
Not only this, there are more LF box trucks than any other DAF model - in fact there are more DAF LF box trucks for sale than box trucks in ANY make or model.
So, if you are a newcomer to the transport business and you are looking for the popular choice of box truck, then a DAF LF should be high on your list.

If you are looking for a lightweight curtainsider, then the DAF LF should be the obvious choice. Popular when new, there are always plenty to choose from in these truck pages.
When considering which particular Euro 6 DAF LF to opt for you need to think about the type of work the curtainsider will be put to. For long distance operations a higher power version would be most suitable, whereas for local multi drop distribution, the most popular LF150 City is man enough for the job.

The LF is a popular choice for fridge and freezer truck operation. There is always a good selection on these truck pages.
For 7.5 tonne refrigerated box truck operation locally, then the LF150 should be the tool of choice with the 4 cylinder PX-4 engine rated at 150hp. Longer distance operators should consider the more powerful version of the same engine in the shape of an LF180.
The LF range goes right up to 18 tonnes GVW - It's great for local distribution to maximise payload, but for distance refrigerated transport, operators tend to opt for the larger CF cab.
