The DAF LF45 was the smallest truck in the DAF range and was discontinued at the end of 2013 when the new model naming convention came into play. The truck still exists with the same cab, albeit with modernised panels and Euro 6 engines.
If you need a Euro 6 truck for entering the Low Emission Zones, then you should be looking at the Euro 6 DAF LF trucks for sale – if not, and your budget is not huge, then an LF45 will definitely still do the job.
The truck was mainly sold in the UK as a 7.5 tonner – the driver licence rules meant that anything heavier meant that there was a small pool of professional drivers to call upon. Older drivers with car licences can still drive a 7.5 tonne DAF LF45.
Despite its diminutive size, the LF45 was available as a sleeper cab and even a crew cab for recovery operation.
A highly flexible truck, it could be specified for any type of operation, from a refrigerated truck to a tipper and a box truck to a car transporter.
The LF45 shares its cab with the less popular (in the UK at least) Renault Midlum. The cab is actually made by Renault and shipped to Leyland for final assembly in the UK.
