DAF at Matexpo exhibition for construction equipment
8x4 FAW chassis for the first time on display
To demonstrate its comprehensive and tailor-made product and services offering for the construction business, DAF is participating at the biennial Matexpo exhibition for building equipment, taking place from September 11 till 15, 2019 in Kortrijk, Belgium. On display at the DAF stand will be – amongst other construction trucks – the new CF FAW 8x4, which is a world-first for Matexpo.
DAF will have its 300 m2 stand in Hall 5 of the Matexpo and will have 3 vehicles on display, including the 19T LF Construction for local and regional distribution, the XF Super Space Cab for heavy haulage and new 8x4 CF FAW for a variety of applications.
The new FAW chassis – available as both CF and XF rigid – features a tridem with a double-drive tandem for excellent traction and a steered trailing axle for a turning circle of just 15.6 meters and an industry-leading maneuverability. The chassis lends itself perfectly for a tipper, concrete mixer or hook lift superstructure.
Richard Zink, Director Marketing & Sales and Member of the Board of Management of DAF Trucks: “With a market share of 20%, DAF is the obvious number 1 in the European tractor segment. We have the best offer in the construction segment as well, as DAF has a fantastic range of vehicles to suit very demand. The new FAW marks our ambition to grow further in this construction segment.”
