King Lifting has taken delivery of five new DAF XF 530 FTT 6 x 4 tractor units that have been specially adapted for a 150-tonne capacity.
The units are fully compliant with the latest Euro 6 Emissions standard – including the latest onboard diagnostic systems to ensure ongoing compliance. The trucks feature a fuel-efficient setting, which is automatically selected, and the engine will shut down after five minutes of idling.
Electronic vehicle stability control (VSC) improves directional stability, providing additional roll over safety. Furthermore, the direct vision system, which consists of blind spot and rear-view cameras, as well as ultra-sonic sensors enhances the safety of vulnerable road users.
Managing Director, Tristan King, said: “A focus on acquiring units that prioritised fuel efficiency and drivability was important to consider. As a responsible and sustainable business, we take seriously our role in reducing our impacts on the environment and we know that this is important to the businesses we work with too.”
King Lifting was established in 1982 by chairman Bob King and is currently the UK’s largest family-owned crane rental company.
