DAF Yes or No?

Les Smith introducing a new truck manufacture to its fleet! DAF trucks will run along side the existing IVECO and MERCEDES fleet.



The trucks Les Smith has acquired are 5 brand new 2019 DAF XF 480 6×2 Tractor units. This new truck proves to deliver a standard for transport efficiency resulting in lower fuel consumption, 7% lower in fact compared to previous models. DAF takes the reputation of the Euro 6 trucks a major step further while increasing return per kilometre and reducing environmental impact. More power, more torque, more aerodynamic with high efficiency rear axles have resulted in more fuel efficiency. A win win win for everyone! DAF has supplied the truck with a lot of standard features to aid and improve the drivers comfort and convince including lane assist, reverse warning system, high spec spacious interior, automatic climate control and full air suspension.


The trucks are all wearing the Les Smith livery ready to represent as well as fitted with the Brigade camera and Sensor system and vehicle tracking (Supplied and fitted by Halls Electrical) to qualify for the FORS Silver Standard.



We will be doing comparisons to see which truck between the 3 manufacturers are most beneficial for our long term future for the environment, drivers and customers.
