Travis Perkins takes Fuso Canter trucks

Published:  04 August, 2010

NORTHAMPTON: Travis Perkins has added seven 3.5-tonne Canter 3C13s light trucks to its fleet with a seven more on order.

The trucks have alloy dropside bodies by Newland Coachworks, 500kg DEL Slimjim column tail-lifts, meet Euro 5 emissions limits and the Enhanced Environmentally-friendly Vehicle standard.

The 130hp 3.0-litre diesel delivers 300Nm of torque through a six-speed manual gearbox.

Liam Holland, group transport operations manager for Travis said: "With the body and tail-lift fitted, the truck still has a very competitive payload of just under a tonne. Importantly, it also offers an exceptionally high, 3.5-tonne towing capability, which makes it particularly attractive for operation within our tool hire business," he said.
