DAF cleans up with Go Plant LF order

UK specialist municipal vehicle hire firm Go Plant Ltd has ordered 54 DAF LF 15-tonne and 18-tonne Euro 6 sweepers. Over 90 per cent of Go Plant’s sweeper fleet are already DAF LF vehicles, which usually work eight to 12 hours a day across the UK over a lifespan of 10 to 13 years each.

They are hired for a variety of self-drive, short-term rental and operated hire contracts in the public and private sectors, such as local authorities and construction sites.

The new Euro 6 trucks have been fitted with both Johnston VT651 and VT801 bodies featuring a heavy-duty, stainless steel body with water tank, hydraulically operated sweeping system and quick-change mechanism for channel and wide-sweep brushes.

To make space for the brushes, the truck’s exhaust aftertreatment system, AdBlue tank and batteries are all mounted on a gantry behind the cab, while the fuel tank is mounted in the rear of the frame protected by the rear under-run protection beam.

“DAF has been a chosen supplier for many years as we have always been very happy Paul Langham, Go Plant managing director. “The LF is purpose, and our customers prefer it too – so as we put a real emphasis on working in partnership, if they’re happy, with the reliability and running costs of its vehicles,” said exactly the right size for its then so are we,” he said.
