DAF Trucks has announced that its LF Sweeper chassis, in partnership with Johnston Sweepers, is now available with ZF’s 12-speed AS Tronic transmission.

The new gearbox option comes following demand from Johnston Sweeper’s customers and, says DAF, bridges a gap between the existing manual and fully automatic transmission options from Allison.

The wide ratio spread (10.37:1 to 0.81:1) is said to suit both local authorities and contractors, delivering low-speed control and acceptable highway speeds. The AS Tronic option is available on DAF LF with Paccar PX-7 engines at 16 and 18 tonnes GVW.

The first two 18-tonne GVW Johnston-bodied vehicles equipped with the AS Tronic option are now in operation with Go Plant and Sweeptech.

“We’ve made an already excellent sweeper truck even more appealing to a greater number of customers,” says David Price, municipal sales manager for DAF Trucks.

“The AS Tronic is a proven automated manual gearbox, and one with which our customers will be very familiar.”
