Compact, manoeuvrable, with good body mounting ability as well as clean and economical. These qualities form the basis for the Canter’s success.
The star in terms of working load is now rolling into the 2014 model year with a number of innovations. The engines feature the latest technology, emit fewer pollutants and are much more efficient. Euro 5b+ and Euro VI make provision for the latest emissions regulations. A new weight variant with a gross vehicle weight rating of 8.55 t achieves the top performance for the new 9C15 and 9C18 models with chassis load-bearing capacities of up to six tones.
New: factory bodies with aluminium platforms and dumpers
A truck only becomes a commercial vehicle if it has a body that enables it to ideally carry out its transportation function. Complete vehicles including platforms and dumpers are now also produced at the Tramagal plant in Portugal, where the Canter has been produced for Europe for more than 30 years. In addition to a lightweight and versatile aluminium platform, Daimler’s Fuso subsidiary also offers a three-way tipper in the 3.5 to 7.5 tonne category. Customers receive functional and high-quality bodies that they can simply order as special equipment from an authorised Fuso sales partner.
Useful details make everyday working easier
From removable cab protection to a side-mounted ladder for ease of access, the vehicles feature a number of useful details that make every day working easier. Both the dumpers and the platforms are available with an underride guard, a side-mounted, foldable climbing aid or a lockable tool box. The dumpers also feature a removable front guard.
Single source for orders and warranties
Orders, invoicing and warranty cases are all dealt with in one place, saving both time and money. Fuso offers a warranty for three years or 100,000 km on the aluminium platforms and steel dumpers, as it does for the basic vehicle. The three-way tippers with swinging side panels to aid unloading can also be painted the same colour as the vehicle. The fact that the bodies are assembled at the Tramagal plant guarantees that the technology is state-of-the-art, and also allows attractive pricing.
Suitable for a wide range of applications
The Canter’s popularity is growing, whether among landscapers, conservators or builders, in short-radius distribution and in municipalities. In addition to its factory body solutions, the Canter meets all of these requirements with all different kinds of body. The Fuso Canter is a compact, highly manoeuvrable truck with a GVWR of 3.5 t to 8.55 t, a high working load, different variants in the form of 4×2 and 4×4 drive, hybrid drive, Duonic automated dual clutch transmission, three cab variants, six different wheel base options, three auxiliary drives and a hole pattern in the frame for various bodies of up to seven metres in length. Many different variants from a range of manufacturers and certified partners can be mounted, from refrigerated bodies and loading cranes to exchangeable containers, skip loaders and roll-off tippers.
