The CF cab is clearly designed around the driver.
The CF comes with a choice of Day Cab or Sleeper Cab. Both variants combine compact external dimensions with a surprisingly spacious interior and offer easy access, excellent visibility and an ergonomic working environment.
The sense of roominess inside the cab is accentuated by the large windscreen and side windows. The intelligent use of space and high-quality materials create an ergonomic environment that is both productive and pleasant.
From the fully adjustable air-sprung driver’s seat with integral headrest and optional adjustable lumbar support and seat-belt tensioners, the driver has excellent access to all controls. The seats mould to the body to provide fatigue-reducing support.
Extensive seat adjustment, combined with the two way adjustable steering wheel ensures the optimum driving position for drivers of all sizes.
A multifunctional chassis for a versatile vehicle.
The robust CF-chassis is made of high-quality steel, resulting in an exceptionally strong but lightweight chassis for high payloads. It is completely flat, making it the perfect base for any superstructure. The main frame members are pre-drilled to ensure easy mounting of the body.
Smart chassis design
The chassis shape, layout and positioning of components is designed to minimize vehicle weight and maximize available space. Many components, such as air tanks and other brake components, are mounted on the inside of the chassis frame, leaving ample space for the fitment of crane legs, twist locks, hydraulic tanks, tool boxes and other additional equipment.
The power to perform.
The versatility of the CF is underlined by the wide choice of engines. The CF75 is powered by the 9.2 litre PACCAR PR engine, while the CF85 features the 12.9 litre PACCAR MX engine as used in the XF105. These state-of-the-art power plants, offer power ratings from 250 hp up to 510 hp, to meet individual requirements.
All PACCAR engines are designed to offer the highest standards of economy, reliability and durability. The 6-cylinder, in-line engines with SMART high-pressure injection systems are cleaner and deliver high power and torque at low engine speeds.
Fit for the job.
The CF has compact external cab dimensions for excellent manoeuvrability in tight spaces. The low kerb weight for high payloads, sturdy design, powerful engines and broad range of chassis and axle configurations make the CF suitable for a multitude of applications, ranging from inner-city delivery and special tasks such as fire engines or tankers to construction vehicles and long-distance transport.
The CF range includes a 6x4 truck tractor and 8x4 rigid with hub-reduction axles. We also offer solutions to meet specific tasks and Euro 5-compliant trucks.
