The 6X2 twin-steer tractors use Paccar’s 460hp 12.9-litre Euro 5 engine and DAF’s 12-speed AS-Tronic automated gearbox and have Super Space cabs.

Sam de Beaux, engineering director, Gist, said Gist specified Super Space cabs for driver comfort. This option increases the height of the cab by 370mm and provides additional room for bunk beds.
