DAF XF FTM (8x4) Heavy Haulage


  • Excellent traction
  • Duty based optimised driveline
  • High axle loads

The DAF XF FTM is an ideal choice for heavy haulage and exceptional loads over long distances.

Thanks to the 8x4 configuration with tridem and double driven tandem axle the DAF XF FTM provides great traction and maximum imposed load. And when the XF FTM is specified with an automated gearbox special ‘Heavy Haulage’ software settings can be specified as well, which further increases the drivability. This is especially important for the first few metres, to get a heavy combination moving in the smoothest and safest way possible. The driveline can be further optimised with the dedicated options provided by the impressive MX-11 (10.8 litre) or MX-13 (12.9 litre) engines, 12 and 16 speed Traxon and 16 speed manual gearboxes, single and hub reduction rear axles the ideal driveline can be configured to handle even the heaviest vehicles. Furthermore, thanks to the high axle loads capability, with up to 9 tonnes for the front axles and up to 2x13 tonnes with either steel or air rear suspension for the rear tandem the XF FTM can take on freight of various weights and sizes. The powerful MX Engine Brake and ZF Intarder can be specified to ensure the highest braking performance and safety on the steepest descents.
