The second-most powerful truck in the CF65 range after the CF65.300. Sharing the same 6.7 litre PACCAR GR engine, the 280 was initially only available at Euro 4 as a 4×2 rigid and a gross vehicle weight of 18 tonnes.
The CF uses DAF’s mid- sized cab and is heavier than the smaller LF. The 18 tonne CF would be chosen over the LF version if the distances involved were greater or there was more than one person in the cab.
The CF65.280 was available as a day, sleeper or Space Cab.
