New DAF Trucks for Rathcoole Commercial & Maxela

Rathcoole Commercial

Rathcoole Commercial has taken delivery of a new DAF LF 170 from DAF Ireland’s Dublin HQ. It comes with a PACCAR factory box body that’s built from the assembly line at Leyland, England.

The high spec LF series rigid truck has been designed with city driving in mind, with a high payload and a tighter turning circle. Rathcoole’s LF also features a full aero kit, luxury air driver seat, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, advanced emergency brake system, lane departure warning and rear underrun protection.

It is powered by PACCAR’s PX-4, 3.8 litre 172hp Euro 6 diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
