Chassis

The chassis of the Euro 6 LF has been designed for maximum stiffness and excellent driving characteristics, a low kerb weight and ample room for positioning components. The chassis is completely flat and the electrical installation ensures maximum bodybuilder friendliness. In order to provide vehicles tailored to every application, the LF Series features a large number of variants in terms of payload andwheelbase.

High payload

Light and strong

DAF LF Euro 6 rear axleThe LF chassis is a single-wall construction, which keeps kerb weight as low as possible — high-quality steel is used for maximum strength.

For extra load capability, the 18 and 19-tonne models can be fitted with a new 13-tonne rear axle, which is important in countries where loads exceeding 11.5 tonnes are permitted on the driven axle.
 

Component layout

Practically positioned components

Components such as air tanks and the electronic brake control are practically positioned on the inside of the chassis, creating a lot of free space to mount toolboxes, support legs and spare wheel.
