Twelve FUSO Canter for the Dutch Town of Houten
The municipality of Houten, Netherlands, has put 12 FUSO Canter - 4 Canter trucks with crewcab and 8 with single cab - into municipal service.
“This is the second series of FUSO trucks that we have bought,” says Arie Koning, project manager for the municipality of Houten. “We already know for ourselves that these are robust vehicles suitable for a wide range of applications. Practical experience has proved that reliability and ease of maintenance are the particular strengths of this brand.”
The vehicles have been fitted with platform bodies from a local bodybuilder. The 4 Canter 3S13 models are also equipped for winter maintenance operations. On top of the usual tasks they perform on public traffic routes, they are also capable of coping effectively with black ice.
“We've been out spreading salt 33 times so far this year already,” adds Mr. Koning. “The FUSO’s small turning circle means that we can clear the cycle paths in our municipality without any problem at all.”
Next summer, the vehicles will be used for municipal operations such as parks maintenance.
The fuel-efficient Euro VI engines of the FUSO Canter are an important element of the Town of Houten’s sustainability concept. Their low emissions mean that the vehicles are ideal for use in the municipality’s built-up areas.
