Fuso has upgraded its Built Ready factory tipper range with a two-way tailgate and additional standard features for its popular Canter 815 model.
It has also turned up the volume and increased the space inside the load area from 2.4 cubic metres to 2.6 cubic metres.
The Canter 615 City Cab and 815 Wide Cab tippers have the best payload in their respective classes and can both be driven on a car licence. The 615 tipper has a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 6000kg and the 815 tipper has a GVM of 7500kg.
Both trucks can be classified with a 4500kg rating if they are to be driven by car licence holders.
The headline change for the Canter 815 tipper upgrade is a new factory two-way tailgate that replaces the fixed top-hinged tipper rear tailgate section.
Being able to fold the rear tailgate out of the way will bring big advantages in certain applications that require larger items to be unloaded.
Customers can be assured of Fuso quality thanks to this feature coming straight from the factory.
The tipper trays for both the 615 and 815 Canter tippers both feature fold-down sides for extra convenience.
Other upgrades for the 815 Canter tipper include a hydraulic body lock, for additional safety and stability when loading and unloading machinery, grab handles and steps, rope rails and additional tray capacity.
Both the 615 and 815 Canter tippers come standard with a Limited Slip Differential, perfect for work on slippery and potentially uneven building sites, and grippy lug tyres.
They also feature what Daimler claims is a best-in-class turning circle and feature a full suite of safety technology including Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and hill-hold brake feature.
The Fuso AEBS system uses radar technology to enable automatic emergency braking in the event of a potential collision and can even begin braking for pedestrians.
The latest revisions further increase the appeal of the Canter 815 tipper according to Alex Müller, Fuso Truck and Bus Australia Director.
“We are happy to respond to Australian demand for a two-way tailgate for the Canter 815 and believe this addition will make it easier for our customers to get the job done,” he said.
“Our Canter tipper models already have the best in class payload and turning circle and advanced active safety systems, but these upgrades make the 815 an even more attractive proposition,” said Müller.
“The fact that both of these trucks can be specified as car-licence models if required means they have a very wide appeal.”
The 615 and 815 Canter tipper models feature class-leading 30,000km service intervals and a manufacturer’s warranty that covers the vehicle for five-years or 200,000km, whichever comes first.
