DAF boosts Powerday urban vehicle of the future 13 April 2015

Family-owned recycling and waste management specialist Powerday, in Harlesden, has taken on a new DAF LF 250 FA skip-loader chassis specified for what the firm sees as a safe inner city truck of the future.

Equipment includes: a Hyva skip-loader body operated via new wireless remote control technology; a four-camera live streaming monitoring system; filled-in side-underrun protection; and DAF telematics.

Powerday, which is FORS Gold accredited and has CLOCS Champion status, says that DAF was instrumental in spearheading the next generation of Powerday vehicles.

"DAF is fully committed to what we want to achieve," states transport manager, Bill Cox, "and, together with Hyva, we have brought to fruition a vehicle which is not only Euro 6 compliant – the first on our fleet – but a truck that fits our vision of the urban vehicle of the future."

Powerday has previous experience of DAF, having taken 15 LF 18-tonne skip vehicles in 2011.

"Our prior DAF experience has been very positive indeed," comments Cox, "and, from an operational point-of-view, our drivers appear extremely impressed with how the DAFs handle themselves around town."
