Versatile application of Canter

How can Mitsubishi Fuso's canters be used?

In addition, many people who are considering buying trucks, including canters, would like to ask many questions.

From here, we will introduce the use of canters and frequently asked questions about truck purchases.

Light trucks can be purchased at a low price.

Light trucks are trucks that meet Japan's unique light vehicle standards and have a lower maximum carrying capacity and horsepower but can carry up to 350kg of luggage.

The "Refrigerated truck" equipped with an aluminum van on the truck bed as a cooling device can transport fresh ingredients.

Since the temperature of the truck bed can be kept at about 0〜5℃, frozen foods such as meat, fish, and ice cream can be transported in a fresh state.

A double cab is a truck that has more than two rows of seats and can accommodate more than 4 people.

Normal trucks can only accommodate two people, but the advantage of double cabs is that the number of persons can be increased, and they can also carry luggage.

The difference is that diesel engines use light oil and gasoline engines use gasoline. Diesel engines spontaneously ignite by injecting fuel in a mist into the air when it becomes hot after compressed. Gasoline engines, on the other hand, burn a mixture of compressed spray gasoline and air by igniting sparks with a spark plug. You can keep a car cheaper with gasoline, and diesel engines are a bit more expensive than gasoline. Most of the trucks that carry a lot of luggage are diesel engines because their horsepower is stronger than gasoline engines.

Wing body or flat body trucks can efficiently load and unload luggage.

By opening the side of the luggage compartment, the wing-body can be used to carry heavy luggage without forklifts and reduce problems such as having dirt, damage, and scattering while carrying luggage, as with flat bodies.

On the other hand, a flat body is a truck loaded with a flat type truck bed.

There is a risk that the luggage will be contaminated by exposure to rain and wind because the truck bed does not have a roof. It is characterized by high versatility because there are few restrictions on the dimensions of the load and the method of loading and unloading.
