Low kerb weight and high load capacity put The New LF at the top of its class, meaning pure profit for your business. With its modern, strong and light chassis, The New LF does not compromise on robustness and flexibility.
Fully optimised suspension
The New LF offers an extremely comfortable driving experience. The front suspension is fully optimised to offer the perfect balance between damping, lateral stability and stiffness. The front axles (from 3.6 to 7.5 tonnes) offer ample capacity to prevent overloading with diminishing loads. And its unsurpassed manoeuvrability is due to the fact that it has the smallest turning circle in this segment.
With a choice of different rear axles and final drive assemblies, there is an optimised LF for every application. The axles have been developed with top performance, long service life and maximum driving comfort in mind: from the lightest, 5-tonnes SR 5.10 axle to the 13-tonnes SR1344 rear axle for extra capacity on the 19-tonnes LF. A differential lock is available as an option on almost all axle variants — for maximum traction and vehicle control, whatever the circumstances.
Even greater load capacity
The LF already has the largest load capacity in its class thanks to a wide range of chassis lengths and wheel bases. In The New LF, wheel bases extend up to 6.90 metres. This results in possible load lengths of over 9 metres giving the truck even greater load capacity. Longer wheel bases also mean the vehicle can provide fuel capacity of up to 1,240 litres making it unique in its class. This gives The New LF a large operation range and enables the driver to stop for fuel where prices are at their lowest.
Superb bodybuilder friendliness
The New LF also incorporates innovations that improve bodybuilder friendliness. These include new, ex-factory Body Attachment Module (BAM) programmes that enable fast, easy installation of box bodies, tail lifts, tippers, cranes and other equipment. In addition, more combinations of wheelbases and rear overhangs offer extra flexibility. This enables the chassis to be configured in production ready for bodies and superstructures of all types.
