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 of operation the marque became a favourite for a wide range of trucking operations.

The company started truck manufacture relatively late, but in the early 1970s it took an industry lead with its flagship 2800. Equipped with a wide tilt sleeper cab with two full-size bunks and a powerful, yet frugal, 11.6-litre DAF engine, it was a natural for long-haul work.

Improved through constant development, the 2800 spawned the 3300 in 1982 and the 3600 in 1985, with the emphasis on economy of operation and driver comfort – in particular the Space cab. DAF's unique mix of performance, reliability and comfort endeared the trucks to fleet managers, accountants and drivers alike.

Patrick W Dyer works in motor sport and holds a Class One HGV licence, driving whenever possible. He has written two other books for Old Pond: the Scania title mentioned above and Know Your Trucks, a pocket-sized introduction for novice enthusiasts.
