The driver of the DAF CF of the company Topline is George Soulidis who shared his experience with the DAF CF truck. “First of all, I like the ease of access inside the cabin. I have to go up and down several times every day, so its low stairs make it much easier for me. I do not get tired and I think that the low cabin is ergonomic and functional for the needs of our work.
I also like that it has a lot of storage space which is easily accessible. Even the visibility from the driving position is good in all directions. On the road the number one advantage of the car I consider to be its engine. It has a good response and quickly catches high speeds. I also want to emphasize that it is very economical according to the data recorded by the trip computer. For the needs of our work, the specific horsepower and torque are ideal (449 hp and 2,300 Nm). In addition, its cooperation with the 12-speed automatic transmission is good, changing gears smoothly. In general, I consider the DAF CF a complete car in all respects. “
