DAF at Matexpo exhibition for construction equipment

The new 8x4 DAF CF FAW will be put on display for the first time at the Matexpo exhibition for construction equipment in Kortijk, Belgium– marking DAF’s ambition to grow further in the construction sector.

DAF Trucks’ 300 m2stand in Hall 5 of the Matexpo will exhibit three vehicles, including the 19-tonne 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 axle configuration with a double-drive tandem axle for excellent traction and a steered trailing axle providing a turning circle of just 15.6 meters and industry-leading maneuverability. The chassis lends itself perfectly for tipper, concrete mixer or hook lift bodywork.
