Ex­tra tonne for Fuso tip­per

Owner Driver - - Tech Briefs -

FUSO has anounced that its buil­tready Wide Cab Can­ter Tip­per has gained an ex­tra tonne of ca­pac­ity due to a range of en­gi­neer­ing up­grades.

This has re­sulted in its gross ve­hi­cle mass (GVM) to in­crease to 7.5 tonnes and the gross com­bi­na­tion mass (GCM) to rise to 11 tonnes.

Fuso has also con­firmed the up­graded Wide Cab Can­ter Tip­per has also in­creased its cu­bic car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity by more than 14 per cent to 2.4 cu­bic me­tres. This fur­ther en­hance­ment is a re­sult of in­creas­ing the length of the tip­per body by 300mm, for a to­tal in­ter­nal body length mea­sure­ment of 3150mm.

Fuso says tip­ping is even eas­ier thanks to a larger hy­draulic lift cylin­der run­ning at a higher pres­sure (8.0MPA) and a re­vised tip­per hoist stroke that al­lows for a max­i­mum tip an­gle of 60 de­grees (up five de­grees on the cur­rent model).

“The Fuso tip­per models are well known for their dura­bil­ity and tough­ness,” Fuso Truck and Bus di­rec­tor Justin Whit­ford says. “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.”

Fuso points out that the Wide Cab Can­ter Tip­per fea­tures an I-Beam front axle for max­i­mum dura­bil­ity when op­er­at­ing in de­mand­ing en­vi­ron­ments. Fuso adds that it is avail­able with a man­ual gear­box or Fuso’s quick-shift­ing au­to­mated DCT trans­mis­sion. The choice of trans­mis­sion does not af­fect the GVM or GCM rat­ing of the ve­hi­cle.

Ac­cord­ing to Fuso, both the Wide Cab Can­ter Tip­per and its nar­row­body City Cab sib­ling are the only Ja­panese tip­pers in their class with a lim­ited slip dif­fer­en­tial as stan­dard. Also aid­ing trac­tion are chunky rear tyres de­signed for slip­pery job sites.

All Can­ter tip­per models can be spec­i­fied with 4.5-tonne GVM cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, which al­lows for them to be driven on a car li­cence while main­tain­ing a use­able pay­load thanks to the Can­ter’s low tare weight.
