O.A.F /Nicolas Tractomas Heavy Haulage units

This picture was taken about seven or eight years after my last entry of large loads on Teesside. Uk .This was about the last time I saw Heavy Haulage Tractors like this, the next one after this was controlled by two men holding what looked like remote control units for model cars!Needless to say I soon put my camera away!

Chris the lead truck is actually a O.a.F not a Daf.
O.a.f trucks are often mistaken for Daf trucks by a quick look at the grille badge.
Oaf is a Austrian based truck manufacturer which is owned by Man and is a division of such and has been since 1938. O.a.f was originally started by Fiat but as mentioned Man acquired such.
O.a.f trucks are mainly heavy haulage and military trucks.
Wikipedia has a lot of information on such as does google in general with links to O.a.f themselves.

The rear truck appears to be a Nicolas Tractomas which was a manufacturer of Heavy Haulage units..
They used the same Renault /Ford cabin on extreme haulage units.

Many thanks for the info Richard. I have only ever seen one other O.a.F other than this and that was a crane. The Nicolas Tractomas behind is the same one that I sent in sometime ago now in Sunters of Northallerton livery. I have a few more pics of this outfit which will appear in due course.
