Canter 3.5t

The urban operator

If you’re driving and working in the crowded streets of Britain’s cities, Canter 3.5t does the job. With the smallest turning circle in its class and a neat cab width of under 2m, it gets just about anywhere a van can go – and you can drive it on a standard UK car licence, with no special training. Spacious cabs and independent suspension ensure a comfortable ride, and the longest body length in its segment means there’s plenty of room for the tools and materials of your trade. The Canter 3.5t – the real city slicker of the range.

Don’t just take our word for it

Canter competition winner gives his verdict

Jonathan Sweetland won the use of a Canter 3.5T for his building contractor business. After six months, we caught up with him to find out what he had to say. “It’s been a great addition to our fleet, it’s been used every day. The guys love driving the truck, they like the cab, like being right up front – and the visibility at the front’s great. We’d definitely consider using Canter long term for a fleet vehicle.”

Canter wins hands down

Tree Craft Arboriculturalists are impressed with Canter’s manoeuvrability and rigidity. "We're always towing chippers and plant trailers and when you're working in towns and cities manoeuvrability is crucial. We used to have real difficulties negotiating mini roundabouts, but not any longer. When it comes to trailer work, the Canter wins hands down."
