Fuso’s built ready
FUSO HAS INTRODUCED an extensive Built Ready range which it says will enable customers to start work immediately, saving them from potentially long wait times. The line-up includes eight different models that can be purchased with bodies already fitted, including Canter tippers, trays, fridge trucks and pantechs, as well as the larger Fighter tipper and tautliner.
“Fuso wants to make it easier for our customers to do business, so we have developed the Built Ready range that covers a wide range of applications,” Fuso director Justin Whitford says.
“We know that our customers would rather be out there getting the job done than waiting for a body to be built up.”
According to Fuso, the Built Ready Canter tippers are sourced directly from Japan, while the other Built Ready bodies have been developed with leading Australian truck body builders and are made in Australia.
“We have been working on this program for quite some time because we wanted to get this right,” Whitford continues. “The quality of these bodies is excellent and we know the design and features will be appreciated by customers who use these trucks all day, every day.”
The Built Ready range includes two Canter tippers – a city-friendly 515 City model with a standard cab (six-tonne GVM) and a 715 Wide Cab (6.5-tonne GVM). For those customers needing to tip more on each run, Fuso has the medium-duty Fighter tipper with a GVM of 11 tonnes.
Fuso says it has catered for tradies with two Canter tray models – the 515 City Cab and the 515 Wide Cab, both boasting alloy trays with drop sides, removable racks and a heavy-duty floor.
Fuso is targeting delivery customers with a Canter 515 Wide Cab Pantech model, available with fibreglass gloss reinforced panels or lighter honeycomb fibreglass construction. Fuso adds that the truck also features a sturdy chequerplate floor, an interior LED light and a Dhollandia tuck-away lift.
In addition, Fuso is offering a Canter 515 City Cab model with a Thermo King fridge, styrene sandwich panel construction, a non-slip fibreglasson-ply floor and a kerb-side door with fold-down step. This model can be used for either frozen or refrigerated cargo.
A Fighter tautliner model is also part of the Built Ready range and is offered with a choice of 10-, 12- or 14-pallet bodies, again featuring a chequer-plate floor plus white curtains with black pelmet and lift-out hanging gates.
