Truck enthusiasts who have read Patrick Dyer’s book Scania at Work: LB 110, 111, 140 & 141 will know what to expect – a wealth of photographs, some from the manufacturer, some from enthusiastic amateurs, supported by interesting and informative captions as well as longer introductions which set the scene for each model.
Patrick begins by considering the early history of DAF which, although now owned by the American company, PACCAR, and with links to Leyland, has its roots firmly in Eindhoven, Holland.
The bulk of the book is given to the 2800 and 3300 ranges. The author goes carefully through the steady technical progress made by DAF trucks and shows how, with its attention to driver comfort and economy ofoperation the marque became a favourite for a wide range of trucking operations.
