The DAF XF105 was the workhorse for long distance transport for many Dutch and European haulage companies. The series offered the biggest cab on the market, excellent engines and a good ride. No, it wasn't the most modern truck on the market but maybe it didn't need to be........
The Euro 6 ranges of DAF including the latest version are very popular and successful. The current series is offering a staggering 7% better fuel figure compared with the previous model (this shot). The only DAF is n't offering are ratings over 530 HP.
The MAN TGX equipped with the middle sized XLX cab is the most popular version. The expected revamped MAN cab will have a new roof section. This XXL version could then be a real improvement over the older one. Heating up of the cab by the sun was a real problem of it.
Mammoet Ferry Transport is depending heavily on UK transport. The Brexit is very dangerous to them and many other haulage companies. Its totally unclear what the British want, the disaster will hit them hard with or without a deal.
With the new Iveco coming soon its a question if they developed a cab system or did break it up in several weight classes with each an individual developed cab. The latter is though not very likely, development of a cab is very expensive.
A nice Volvo FH Globetrotter tautliner combo owned by Dutch haulage company G. de Jong. The current Volvo FH is dating back to 2012. It seems Volvo is busy with developing an FM successor based on the FH cab shell. Why Volvo waited so long is a mystery.
