Fuso’s 515 City Cab factory tipper is now equipped to carry an additional half-tonne of payload, the company says.
The change means the urban tipper is the only narrow cab tipper rated at 6-tonne (GVM), Fuso states.
It is the only Japanese tipper model to come with an integrated strengthened chassis to support the tipper tray and mechanism, rather than a separate sub-frame.
This brings the advantage of a lower tare weight, as well as a lower centre of gravity, the manufacturer says.
As with other Canter models, the tipper comes with five-year manufacturer warranty.
"The 515 City Cab tipper has been a great compact truck for operators who sometimes need to operate in tight environments," Fuso Truck and Bus director Justin Whitford says.
"With an additional 500kg of payload, it is now an even more appealing proposition, especially when you consider Fuso’s low running costs, our free first service offer and our five-year warranty."
For those who need more space in the cab, Fuso also offers the 715 Wide Cab Tipper.
Both the narrow cab and wide cab models feature tough tipper trays that are fitted in Japan and are equipped with tipper-specific front beam suspension and powerful front disc brakes with twin calipers.
Fuso factory tippers come with a limited slip differential (LSD) for superior traction on slippery and uneven surfaces.
The models are available in five-speed manual transmission or a Duonic dual-clutch transmission.
The Canter models come with a standard touch screen multi-media system featuring a satellite navigation system that comes with three-years of free map upgrades.
The screen also displays footage from a reversing camera that is now fitted as standard on most Fuso models.
The Canter manufacturer warranty covers five years/200,000km or 4000 operating hours, whichever comes first.
