Turner DAF

Transport giant Turners has shown that the haulier is not for turning when it comes to its position as the world’s largest operator of DAF three-axle FTPs, after taking delivery of its 1,000th tractor.

The New Generation DAF XF450 FTP is part of the Cambridgeshire tanker and haulage specialist’s latest order of 69 tractor units and adds to its growing fleet of 2,000 vehicles.

Tim King, Turners (Soham) group fleet engineer, said: “We are very well acquainted with DAF’s FTP model.

“It’s the best lightweight six-wheeler on the market; maximising our payload potential.

“It’s very reliable and our drivers have always been more than pleased with the XF cab. The latest New Generation XF cab has proved a big hit,” he added, “and it’s certainly a step-change over the previous model.”

The trucks were delivered by Cambridgeshire and Suffolk-based DAF dealer, Chassis Cab.
