The trucks on these pages are all 18 tonners – that is to say 4×2 rigids with a variety of body types.
18,000kgs (18 tonnes) is the maximum gross vehicle weight possible using a two-axle truck. This is because the rear, drive axle can take a maximum of 10 tonnes and the front, steer axle 8 tonnes.
For operators requiring greater payloads from a rigid truck can increase this through the addition of an extra axle, (giving a 6×2 configuration) which can add a further 8 tonnes payload. Operating at less than 26 and more than 18 tonnes GVW is less efficient, so trucks running at 22 tonnes, for example, are very rare.
Use the filter to select a particular make or model of 18-tonner from our listings.
these trucks are very popular for distribution operations. They are lighter and easier to manoeuvre than a 26 tonner as there is less ribber in contact with the ground when turning.
Modern 18 tonners handle with a car-like feel when sitting behind the wheel – despite the fact that is could be fitted with a 30ft body of any description.
So, expect to see many 18-tonne box vans and 18 tonne curtainsiders in the Truckpages listings. You will find fewer examples of 18 tonne tippers, as operators prefer running a minimum of a 6×4 at 26 tonnes, but ideally an 8×4 at 32 tonnes GVW.
Most trucks on sale today are of good quality and most truck dealers are raising their game to provide excellent service. So buyers look to other areas to help make their decisions over which truck to buy. Proximity to the dealership, relationship with the salesperson or, as in the case with Hako Machines, brand image.

Daf will start to manufacture their fully electric, 19-tonne LF at their factory in Leyland from May this year. With a payload & body allowance of 11.7 tonnes, this compares favourably with a 18-tonne CF. With a 5.4m wheelbase, a diesel-engine CF300 (220kW) weighs in at 6,762kgs giving a body and payload allowance of 11,238kgs – the Road Vehicles (Authorised Weight) and (Construction and Use) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 allows an extra one tonne on top of the standard 18 tonnes GVW for electric trucks. So, even a DAF LF at 18 tonnes with the smaller 7-litre PACCAR diesel at 290HP…>
The LF55.220 is the second most common truck model for sale on the Truckpages website. This excellent choice of trucks means that you should be able to find the LF55 with the right body and the right length.
The LF55.220 was discontinued in 2014 and replaced by the 'LF' without the '55' designation. This means that over time this truck in the 12 to 21 tonne range will shrink in numbers and the popularity of the Euro 6 LF will increase in the used truck market.
The 220 in the model...
The earliest examples of the CF75.310 for sale at Truckpages are the trucks from the launch year of 2005.
These Euro 3 trucks were upgraded for the 2006 model year (sold in 2007) to either Euro 4 or Euro 5 & EEV (DAF went early on the Euro 5 option).
The CF75.310 was discontinued at the Euro 6 replacement year of 2014 and was directly replaced by the 7- litre PX-7 CF320 or the 11-litre MX-11 engine CF300 rated at 300hp or the CF340 rated at 340hp.
The CF75.310 used the 9.2 litre...
Used examples of the Axor 1824 can be found for sale starting from 2007 until the model's discontinuation in 2014 with the advent of Euro 6.
At this time the whole Axor range as discontinued and replaced with the (short-lived) Antos range at Euro 6.
The Axor 1824 was a favourite amongst the grocers, so expect to see lots of 26ft box bodies or refrigerated bodies on these 18-tonne chassis.
Fitted with the Mercedes 6 cylinder, 240HP engine, the Axor 1824 used SCR and Adblue to reach Euro...
The 180E25 Eurocargo was available as a Euro 5 truck and the same model name available as the more recent Euro 6. Truck buyers should therefore be extra careful when looking at this particular model and make sure that it is the correct version they are considering.
Euro 5 vs Euro 6 - How to tell?
This is very straightforward with the Iveco 180E25 as the Euro 6 version has the more modern, 'smile' to the front of the cab that features in both the Euro 6 Daily and Eurocargo...
Launched at the time of the 2000 facelift, the first examples of the DAF CF65.220 for sale in the UK was in 2001 at Euro 3.
Available only as a 4x2 rigid, the Model had a facelift at the introduction of Euro 4 in 2005/6. Using the 6.7 litre PACCAR GR engine, it was the lowest powered in the CF65 range at Euro 4 and 5 (EEV).
Truck buyers could also opt for the more powerful 250 or 280 versions of the same engine, all of which used SCR and AdBlue to reach Euro 4 and 5.
The CF65.220 was...
The Elite 2 was made by Dennis Eagle from 2003 until it was replaced by the Elite 6 at Euro 6 at the end of 2013.
Remember that the highest emission standard these trucks will meet is Euro 5 EEV - for an increasing number of UK Towns and cities you will need a Euro 6 truck.
There are always plenty of used Dennis Elite trucks for sale on Truckpages, you will often find them with Dennis Eagle's own Olympus refuse body fitted.
Plenty of choice as far as the gross vehicle weights and axle...
The TGM 18.250 is a very popular option in the UK. The high-powered 250HP 18 tonner from MAN. has been available in the UK since Euro 4/5 with examples available from 2011.
Look for post-2013 models to make sure that you are buying a Euro 6 version as they look similar to the earlier models.
Used MAN TGM 18.250 Trucks
The 250hp variant outnumbers all other MAN TGM trucks in the UK used truck market - in fact there are more of this variant than all the others added together. Looks like...
The LF220 is the 220hp Euro 6 version of DAF's LF can be used. This is a high powered truck and would usually be seen at operating up to 18 tonnes GVW, although available across the range from 7.5 tonnes and upwards.
Powered by the PACCAR PX-7 rated at 223hp (164kW), it was replaced in the DAF model line up by the LF230 in 2017/18 using the same 7-litre, 6-cylinder PX-7 PACCAR engine but with some improvements to the efficiency and a power rating of 234hp (172kW).
Always a good choice of the 250hp 4x2 DAF CF65.250 rigid trucks for sale at Truckpages.
These trucks were phased out at the end of 2013 - if you a re looking for a more recent DAF middleweight, then you should be considering 2014 (Euro 6 new shape) onwards models, such as the LF250 or LF260 or the larger-cabbed CF250 or CF260.
The P230 was Scania's lowest powered truck in the P Series range. Available from the launch in 2005 until the replacement at Euro 6 by the P250.
Great 18 tonner for local work if you are not looking for a high-powered version for distance or tipper operation, the 230hp variant has plenty of power to complete the job.

The CF220 is the lowest powered truck in DAF's CF range. Launched in 2014 with the Euro 6 upgrade, the CF 220 replaced the ageing CF65.220.
The 220 was popular with local distribution operators - usually configured as a 4x2 box truck or curtainsider. This CF model therefore competes with the smaller-cabbed LF220 and similar as they will be lighter, use the same PX-7 engine and therefore have a better payload - sometimes critical in local distribution operations.
When replaced in...
The 250 horsepower CF is just about the best selling of the Euro 6, (post 2013) CF range. The model was superseded by the CF260 in 2017/18 when the facelift was carried out.
Using the 7-litre PACCAR PX-7 engine with EGR and SCR, the CF250 requires the use of Adblue.
the CF250 was sold mainly for distribution duties and is most frequently found in the used truck market as box truck or curtainsider running at 18 tonnes GVW.
As usual with DAF, there's plenty of choice of model variants...
The 250hp 6.7 litre PACCAR GR165 engine powering the LF55.220 was popular amongst operators when bought new.
This is the second most popular variant of the LF55 line after the 220hp version. The 250 is a popular choice as an urban tractor unit - running at a gross combined weight of up to 28 tonnes for the 17,5" wheels and 32 tonnes with the 22,5" wheels.
Other common uses are as municipal vehicles where extra power for the pto is needed - think gritters, sweepers etc.

These 1824 Actros trucks are the workhorses of the range. 18 tonne rigids at Euro 6 (after 2013) are used mainly for local distribution.
The Actros took over from the discontinued Antos brand at the 18-tonne weight range around 2015/16 so if you are looking for a slightly older model, you should consider the Antos (from 2013 to 2015/6).
If you are looking for an older-still 18-tonne Mercedes truck, then the earlier model was called the Axor. this was phased out in 2013 to make way for...
The 9.2 litre CF75.360 was not as well loved in the UK market as the larger 12.9 litre CF85.360. Whilst the cabs were identical, the additional torque available from the larger engine (1450Nm vs 1775Nm at lower revs) mad the CF85 a more popular choice.
The CF75 version was available as a tractor unit in the UK, but only as a 4x2 which represents a small percentage of the UK market. As a result, most of the 75.360 trucks were sold as 6x2 distribution trucks at 26 tonnes although you can...
If you are after a high payload, high powered 18 tonne DAF, this is the model for you. With the smaller LF cab (the CF is larger and heavier).
Available in this 260hp power output across the weight range from 8 tonnes to 18 tonnes GVW, the Euro 6 LF260 will usually be found as an 18-tonne rigid - but sometimes even as an urban artic with train weights of around 25 tonnes.
The LF260 is essentially a facelifted version of the LF250 - superseding the earlier model in 2017/18 with a more...
The DAF LF250 model was built for the right hand drive markets from 2014 until the 2017 facelift replaced the model with the increased power and more fuel efficient LF260.
Available across a broad weight range from 8 tonnes to 18 tonnes GVW, used examples of the LF250 will usually be at 18 tonnes GVW.
Usually configured as a rigid, the LF250 is also available as an urban artic with a 13 tonne gross weight and a train weight of around 25 tonnes.
Other power outputs are available for the...

The LF230 was launched as a replacement to the LF220 in 2018. Using the same 7-litre PX-7 PACCAR engine as its predecessor, DAF were able to squeeze some additional efficiencies from the facelifted version, improving fuel consumption.
The LF230 is available right across a wide weight range from 8 tonnes to 18 tonnes GVW, so it is important that you ask about the gross vehicle weight of the truck if it is not included in the advert.
All of the LF230 trucks are Euro 6 and therefore...
The Euro 6 DAF CF260 first appeared in the 2017/18 facelift of the CF range, replacing the CF450. This saw an increase of around 10hp in the 7-litre PX-7 engine to 264hp.
Other improvements were made at the time of the facelift, so if you are looking at a 2017 model, it's worth sticking with the 260 over the 250 as fuel consumption was improved at the time.
The 260 is typically configured as an 18-tonne 4x2 rigid truck for distribution purposes, so used examples that we see are box...
Used DAF CF65.280 Trucks
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 4x2 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,...
