Fuso has let us know that their Built Ready Wide Cab Canter Tipper has gained an extra tonne of capacity.
The increase sees the Canter Tipper increase its GVM to 7.5 tonnes, GCM lifts to 11 tonnes.
The upgraded truck has also increased its cubic carrying capacity by more than 14% to 2.4 cubic metres.
What’s changed to allow for the extra carrying capacity?
Fuso tell us the extra cubic capacity is thanks to a 300mm extension of the tipper body.
While engineering upgrades including the fitment of a larger hydraulic lift cylinder running at a higher pressure and a revised tipper hoist stroke have contributed to the heavier weight capabilities.
The Fuso Canter Tipper now has a max tip angle of 60 degrees.
“The Fuso tipper models are well known for their durability and toughness,” – Fuso Truck and Bus Director, Justin Whitford
“We are pleased to announce these upgrades to the Wide Cab Canter Tipper, which will mean a lot to drivers delivering load after load who will enjoy a further boost in productivity.”
Despite the extra maximum weight capacities, operators looking to run a Fuso Canter Tipper on a 4.5 tonne GVM/car license rating can still opt for a Canter with the lower weight certification.
The Canter Tipper is part of Fuso’s recently expanded Built Ready range, check out more details on the new offerings here.
