Following the success of his previous book, Scania at Work, Patrick Dyer takes a close look at another favourite of long haul drivers, DAF. Although now owned by the American company, PACCAR, and with links to Leyland, the roots of DAF trucks are firmly in Eindhoven, Holland. The company started truck manufacture relatively late, but in the early 1970s it took an industry lead with its flagship 2800. The 'Supercontinental' version, with its wide tilt sleeper cab with two full-size bunks and its powerful 11.6-litre DAF engine was a natural for long-haul work. The successor 3300 and 3600 models took the company into the 1980s, running alongside Scania and Volvo as a long-distance driver's favourite. The 330 hp engine suited it for the heavy-duty special transport that became a feature of the period. Patrick W Dyer, author of two books for Old Pond - Scania at Work and Know Your Trucks - works in the automotive industry and is based in Essex. His new book is rich in photographs from the 1970s and '80s.

Patrick Dyer's eighth book in the 'at work' series takes the reader on a journey with ERF, England's last independent truck manufacturer, between the years 1975 and 1993 with the B, C, CP and E-series trucks that the Sandbach based company produced in the face of overwhelming competition from foreign manufacturers.Apart from the renowned economy, reliability and longevity of the products, the B, C, CP and E-series truck ranges were all linked by the remarkable SP cab, which combined a steel cage with bolt on SMC panels. The system was so revolutionary that ERF patented it. The low cost of design and manufacture allowed it to update and improve its cabs with each series.ERF B, C, CP & E-series at Work draws on over 200 fine photographs from the manufacturer and trucking enthusiasts, which combine with the informative text to tell the remarkable story of these ERF products through some of the most turbulent years of the company's existence.

Patrick Dyer's ninth book in the 'at work' series marks a return to Scania to study the 3-series trucks produced between 1988 and 1996, with the emphasis on the 113 and 143 models. In much the same way as these trucks evolved from the previous 2-series and LB (1-series) so too does the book, taking the story forward from the previous titles covering those ranges.For Scania, masters of the modular system and evolutionary engineering processes, the 3-series represented the pinnacle of development for designs born decades earlier. Industry recognition of its achievement came early with the range being awarded the Truck of the Year title in 1989.With over 200 photographs provided by the manufacturer and enthusiasts, Scania 113 & 143 at Work charts the story of the 3-series through informative text in the popular and familiar style of previous 'at work' titles from the same author.

The Transcontinental was an audacious attempt by Ford to challenge the best heavy truck producers in Europe. Developed by a dedicated team of designers, based in Essex, England, the truck was a masterpiece of proprietary component engineering. Engines from Cummins, gearboxes from Fuller, axles from Rockwell and an award-winning cab from Berliet all came together in a dynamic package, which shattered the performance test records of the industry magazines in 1975. Always intended as a fleet machine, the big Ford instead gained the image of the 'premium flagship', often rated alongside established leaders such as the Scania 111 and Volvo F88. Heavily revised in 1978, the Mk 2 remained in production until 1983. Although the Transconti never made a profit for Ford, this big lorry which was magnificent to drive remains a memorable model, loved by truckers and truck enthusiasts alike. To celebrate the Transconti, Patrick Dyer has gathered over 200 photographs to show the truck in its full glory over the years and in a variety of liveries and locations. Each photograph has an extensive caption. When read together these give the complete story of the introduction and development of the model. There is extensive information on bodywork and engine specifications, the little differences that changed over time and the details which made the model so special to those who drove it. Photographs show the trucks at work abroad and there are shots of them on the production line. To set the Transconti in context, Patrick also considers the models which came before and after. Patrick's informative and friendly writing style gives the impression of sharing this story with a fellow enthusiast. The entertaining foreword is by George Bennett. 'The Ford Transcontinental at Work by well-known trucking author Patrick W Dyer is an absolute belter: 11/10 on the BLB anorak scale.' Biglorryblog
