Hailed as the Best XF ever in British and European trucking. It is classed as the benchmark for long-distance transport, developed for maximum transport efficiency. With powerful PACCAR MX-11 and MX-13 engines, refined for maximum efficiency, the vehicle also boasts a well-thought through chassis, an attractive exterior design and a spacious comfortable interior for drivers. No surprise that all the mainstream operators are using them to draw a wide variety of trailers.
You’ve seen the cab pulling livestock trailers, rigid 40 ft trailers, curtainsiders, and flatbeds and now we see it with a gleaming piece of new tooling in the shape of the cylindrical tanker. Our 1:76 scale (OO scale 18.2 cm long) DAF XF Euro 6 Cylindrical Tanker is in the William Nicol livery and is a very welcome addition to the extensive Oxford Haulage range.
