Fuso’s built ready

Owner Driver - - Tech Briefs -

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.
