7.5 Tonne Trucks for Sale (287)

7.5 tonners have been the workhorses of the UK economy for many years and are always popular buyer’s choice at Truckpages.

Always popular for local distribution, a 7.5 tonne box truck or curtainsider is relatively easy to navigate the urban environment but with a significant load volume.

Typical 7.5 Tonne Truck Dimensions

As operators can choose from a wide variety of bodies to be fitted to their trucks – even after the European Whole Vehicle Type Approval has removed some of the choice – you can find 7.5 tonnes box vans with body lengths from as short as 14ft and as long as 26 feet. A typical, average length would be  20 to 21 feet.

The body length is dependent upon the wheelbase length as the overhang over the rear axle is important – nobody wants to see a truck performing a wheelie!

Again, heights are variable – there’s no point in having a tall box body if your payload is a heavy one, as it will create unnecessary wind resistance because you will never be able to fill it up!

More About 7.5 Tonne Trucks

Used 7.5 Tonne Truck
Note the half dropside for scaffold use on this 7.5 ton Iveco

When talking about 7.5 tonne tippers, body lengths are typically much shorter – you will normally see a 14ft to 16ft tipper body on a 7.5 tonne chassis, whilst dropsides and flatbeds are typically longer – especially those designed specifically for scaffolding work.

7.5 Tonne Truck Payloads

Here’s the problem with 7.5 tonne trucks – the payloads are not very good.  A standard DAF LF with a day cab has an unladen weight of between 3.3 and 3.5 tonnes, depending on the wheelbase (there are no fewer than eight to choose from). That leaves about 4 tonnes for the body, driver and fuel. The overall payload depends on the weight of the body, the ancillaries, (like tail lifts, refrigerated units etc.) but in general, it means that you will be looking at a payload of around 3 tonnes to get to the 7.5 tonnes GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight).

7.5 tonne tipper
Mitsubishi Canter – Low unladen weight gives good payload @ 7.5T GVW

When you compare this to a less popular 12 tonne truck, which looks almost identical to the 7.5 tonne version and weighs in at just 300kgs more, you will be able to carry 4 tonnes more than the 7.5 tonner! Most of this will be down to larger wheels and tyres – the only easy way to spot the difference these days.

So why are the 7.5 tonne trucks so popular?

The answer is that they are a lot less popular than they were 20 or so years ago.  This is all down to a change in driver licencing rules.

Who can Drive a 7.5 Tonner?

If a driver completed their driving test prior to 1996 then they have the automatic right to drive a 7.5 tonne truck.  However – to drive one professionally, they will still need to have a driver CPC.  What this does mean is that there is still a relatively large pool of drivers who are able to drive at 7.5 tonnes, but not a t 12 tonnes GVW.

7.5 Tonne Truck Market

The other reason for the decline in the 7.5 tonne truck market is operators are either upsizing or downsizing their vehicles.  We have seen that 7.5 tonnes is not terribly efficient, but operating at 18 tonnes is the most efficient way – compared to a 16 tonner, for example.

Equally if you don’t want the hassle of obtaining an operator’s licence (compulsory for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes GVW) then use a 3.5 tonne GVW van (like a Transit, for example) which can be driven by any car driver without a CPC.

Most Popular 7.5 Tonne Models

Eurocargo 75E16 7.5 Tonne Trucks (80)

One of the most common sights on the UK's roads is the Eurocargo 75E16. Iveco's bread and butter model comes with a 160hp Cursor engine and is rated at 7.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight.

With a reasonably low unladen weight the 75E16 is highly flexible and can be configured to carry out many different types of work. With the '75E16K' tipper variant, the chassis can be transformed into a tipper easily, but it is as the white box van that this model is seen most frequently.

LF45.160 7.5 Tonne Trucks (56)

You could describe the DAF LF45.160 as an everyday workhorse.  Suitable for many applications and, at 7.5 tonnes GVW can still be driven by many people on a standard car licence.

Using PACCAR's FR 4-cylinder engine, the LF45.160 was launched in 2006 as a replacement for the LF45.150. The 160 was available in Euro 4 and Euro 5 and in EEV guise from 2008 until being replaced in 2014 with the Euro 6 using SCR and Adblue. With 600Nm of torque, the 45.160 is more than up to any job thrown at...

LF150 7.5 Tonne Trucks (43)

The latest model of DAF's long-running LF series cab. All of these trucks are post-2013, Euro 6 Models with the lowest power output in the range with just 156hp from the PX-4, 3.8-litre 4-cylinder engine, (Maybe DAF should have rounded up, not down).

The LF150 is only available with a manual transmission - you have to look for the LF180 to find one that had the optional 6-speed AS-Tronic specified from new.  Same holds for a sleeper cab version - you won't find a sleeper cabbed LF150 -...

LF180 7.5 Tonne Trucks (34)

If you are looking at buying a DAF LF180 then you it will be a post 2013, Euro 6 model that you are interested in.

The problem you will have is that it is not clear from the model number what the gross vehicle weight of the truck is.

The LF180 is available as a 7.5 tonner, a 10 tonner, 12 tonner, 14 tonner and even a 16-tonne truck.  Check carefully as different driving licences are required for the heavier models.

LF45.180 7.5 Tonne Trucks (30)

Launched at Euro 4 in 2008, the 180hp version of DAF's LF45.180 was primarily used as a 12 tonner - especially for sweeper or refuse-type operations.

For operators wanting a more standard 7.5 tonner, the LF45.150 at Euro 3 or the LF45.160 at Euro 4 or 5 EEV was good enough.

The LF45.180 differed from the larger LF55.180 mainly due to the size of the wheels.  The LF45 runs on 17.5" wheels, whilst the LF55 runs on 19.5" wheels at 12 tonnes GVW. The cabs are the same, but payloads higher...

LF210 7.5 Tonne Trucks (19)

The LF210 first hit the UK's roads back in 2014 in Euro 6 form.  This 5-litre 4x2 rigid is available across a wide weight range, so be careful which particular LF210 you are looking at.
Watch the Weight
Always ask the gross vehicle weight of these trucks.  They start at 7.5 tonnes, but the 210hp engine is a little overpowered for this job, so these are rare.  Expect to see larger numbers of these trucks on the 12 tonne GVW weight mark and the rest at top weight if 15-16 tonnes.

At these...

LF45.150 7.5 Tonne Trucks (14)

The DAF LF45.150 was the smallest truck in the DAF range and helped the model to win truck of the year on 2002. Production of the 150hp version ceased at the end of 2006 when the truck was replaced by the LF45.160 with 160hp at Euro 4.

This means that the highest emissions standard the LF45.150 could have reached was the Euro 3.  A green truck by many standards, but still not allowed into many urban areas, such as London's ULEZ without a severe daily charge.

There are still plenty of...

LF45.140 7.5 Tonne Trucks (11)

DAF launched the LF45.140 at Euro 4 in 2017/8 to replace the earlier LF45.130.  This is the lowest powered truck in the DAF range and was marketed for local operation, rather than motorway work.

Expect many of these to be found wearing the red royal Mail/Parcelforce livery - they were large fleet buyers of these trucks in the day.

Could drivers actually notice the difference between the LF45.140 and the larger LF45.160? Unlikely - the engines were essentially the same, but it meant that...

LF260 7.5 Tonne Trucks (11)

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...
