Lighter Canters added

Two years after commissioning its first 7.5-tonne 7C15 Fuso Canter, East London-based Enviro Waste is now running a pair of 3.5-tonne models from the light truck range, supplied by Mercedes-Benz dealer S&B Commercials.

The two 3C15s are powered by an economical three-litre common-rail turbo-diesel. This high-torque unit – 370Nm is available over a broad engine speed range – comes with an engine brake as standard. It produces 110kW (150hp) which, for Enviro Waste, is transmitted to the road via a smooth-shifting Duonic dual clutch automated gearbox.

All three Canters are fitted with tipping box bodies by Fruehauf; the larger truck is additionally equipped with a 500kg Dhollandia column lift.

Operations manager Mark Oates commented: “We run an intensive operation up to six days a week, and make full use of the Canter’s carrying capacity. Its minimal footprint and cab-over-engine design mean the vehicle is also highly manoeuvrable and ideally suited to work in tight city streets.”
