Macclesfield-based Bolshaw Industrial Powders Ltd is making one driver’s day after taking possession of a new DAF XG+ from Motus Commercials DAF – Stoke-on- Trent.
That lucky driver is Martin Shaw, a diehard DAF fan, who’s driven a succession of its vehicles over the years.
Martin explains: “I personally really like DAFs and have driven a number of DAF models in my career. The driver comfort is much better than the rest of our fleet.”
Jonathan Bolshaw, director of Bolshaw, adds: “The decision behind which truck to buy is mainly down to driver preference. Martin previously had the DAF XF but we try to give drivers the very best truck we can so now, with bigger and better cabs available, we chose the DAF XG+.”
The DAF XG+ 530 FTN is a rear-steer tractor unit, featuring Hyva tipping kit. It has a microwave, DAF digital vision system (camera mirrors), and additional Kelsa light bars. The new truck will be used for tipping work, but it will mainly be delivering Bolshaw’s products with a curtain sider trailer.
