Cheap Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter Trucks for Sale

Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter Specifications

Main Characteristics

The Mitsubishi Fuso is a truck with a good balance between practicality and livability. The Engine is made by Daimler AG (the parent company that also makes Mercedes), which means a mixture of fuel efficiency and power, with very little vibration and engine rumble. These characteristics make the engine excellent for long distance hauling.

The ride is comfortable, with air suspension included for the front to improve cabin comfort. It is spacious with comfortable seats which include height tilt adjustment and a reclining back seat for the passenger. There is a driver side airbag, and safety belt pre-tensioners. The cabin is also air conditioned and heated making it ideal for most weather conditions. Front air suspension is included to make the ride more comfortable even over bumps and rough road, with a steel rear suspension and a semi-elliptic leaf stabilizer bar.

The Fuso is available in different body styles, including the standard flat standard chassis, a dump truck variation (the tipper), a semi-truck, a mixer, and even a simple crane. It is excellent for cold storage delivery trucks as well. Cab options include the short or the full cab, with the full cab having more space and better storage.

Load Capacity

Different models are capped at different load capacities. Custom body makers however can construct bodies that are capable of carrying loads higher than 4 tons, depending on the buyer’s needs. Fuso fighter load capacities are classified according to models. This is because certain models have a larger engine capacity, with more power and therefore a higher load capacity.

The entry level load capacity is 4 tons and the smaller models are capable of hauling up to 5 tons. These trucks are suitable for medium sized hauling that cannot be done using pick-ups or vans. They make excellent grocery vans, delivery trucks, and moving vans, because they are the right balance of load capacity, fuel efficiency, and truck size, for city driving.

Mid-level trucks are capable of carrying between 5 and 8 tons. This makes them ideal for hauling cargo between cities. Larger Fuso fighter models are capable of carrying between 8 and 15 tons, which make then ideal for cargo delivery between states. They are also best suited for dump truck and cement mixer bodies.

Here is a table to help in identifying the load capacity by the Fuso Fighter model

Models and Engine

The Mitsubishi Fuso Fighter range comes with the option of several engine models, with some engines being used on different vehicle models. The engine model also determines the amount of power it produces, with options starting from 200 HP. There are also 220 HP, 245 HP, 255 HP, 270 HP and 280 HP Fuso engines available. Built by Daimler, Fuso fighter engines are renowned for their reliability and ease of driving. They come with the option of naturally aspirated or turbocharged. All the engines in the Fuso fighter range are 6 cylinder.

This is a quiet engine with low vibrations and driving noise, making it ideal for driving long hours. It comes with a Selective Catalytic Reduction system (SCR) which actively controls emissions by injecting a liquid agent into the exhaust of the engine, through a special catalyst. This allows the entire system to remain cooler when running, which in turn increases the time the engine can run before requiring service. Depending on the engine model, service intervals can be as long as 30,000 kilometers or 600 hours of running. This is a great way of reducing operating costs.

Engine models are easy to determine from the model number of the truck. This can be done by observing the fifth digit in the model number (See model code guide below). Here are the different engine models available and the vehicle models they are attached to.

L stands for the 4×4 version of the Fuso. The letter N stands for the 6×2 version, with Q representing the high floor version of the 6×2 Fuso.
  • The third letter represents the type pf cab attached.
    with 4/6 representing a full cab with a cabin bed equipped, and 3/7 standing for a short cab.
  • The fourth digit stands for the vehicle rank.
  • The fifth letter is used to show the engine that comes with the truck.
    The number 2 indicates that the engine equipped is a 6D16-T, while the number 5 represents a 6D14 or a 6D14-T engine. The number 6 represents a 6D15 or a 6D15-T engine, the number 7 a 6D16 engine, and finally, the number 8 indicates a 6D17 or a 6D-17-t engine. Sometimes the digit is a letter, which means could mean a different engine. The letter F represents the 6M60T engine, while an H or a G indicates a 6M61 engine. The letter R means that the truck comes with the 4M50-T engine.
  • The sixth digit represents the length of the wheel base.
    The more advanced the letter of the alphabet, the longer the body.

Number of Nuts

The various Fuso fighter models come with different axles, depending on the load capacity, and engine. The entry model 4 ton variations for instance, come with a reverse Elliot “I” beam front axle, which is capable of carrying up to 4.1 tons.

This starts off at 6 nuts for the smaller trucks, which are ideal for hauling cargo around populated areas. These also make excellent frozen foods delivery trucks. Medium sized trucks on the other hand come with 8 nuts to suit their larger wheels and load capacity. The larger Mitsubishi Fuso models come with ten lug nuts per wheel.
