Fourth generation haulier Campeys of Selby has taken delivery of seven new generation DAF XG 450 tractor units, with 12 more scheduled to arrive before Christmas.

Featuring FTG 6x2 mid lift axle configurations, the vehicles are being supplied by Ford & Slater with aftersales support from Pelican DAF in Normanton.

Campseys said it was already seeing an average fuel economy return from the 450bhp XGs of over 11mpg and expectations are high that this will improve further.

“We’re really impressed with the DAF XG’s economy,” said transport manager Harry Campey.

“11.0mpg straight out of the box is excellent for our operation, and that’s only going to get better once they’re bedded in.”
