SPI­DER STRUTS ITS STUFF

Geelong Advertiser - Motoring - - USED CARS -

GET a load of this one.

Fuso has un­veiled an amaz­ing con­cept for new truck in­spired by a gi­ant spi­der.

The big black and red rig was built to wow crowds at the Tokyo Mo­tor Show and fea­tures boom cranes at­tach­ments that can dig, drill, grab bite.

Just like in­sect, Fuso Spi­der has eight limbs. How­ever, in this case, four of them are legs and four are arms.

The out­rig­gers that ex­tend out from the truck body to give it max­i­mum sta­bil­ity.

arms ar­tic­u­lated cranes that can be fit­ted with a wide range of at­tach­ments carry out al­most any task and are ca­pa­ble mov­ing up down as well side to side.

Fuso fit­ted the show truck with a post-hole auger, bale grap­ple, log grap­ple and a bucket that could be used to pick up wood chips, dirt or other ma­te­rial.

It also fea­tures dra­matic black red paint scheme a lit­tle too sim­i­lar to red­back spi­der for Aus­tralians.

Adding the Spi­der’s pres­ence is ro­bust bull­bar and four large driv­ing lights.

The Spi­der is based on Ja­panese version of Aus­tralian FV Heavy truck, which called Su­per Great in its home mar­ket.
