Canter’s a winter winner for Town Council

Banbury Town Council are confident Canter will help them through the worst of winter. “The Canter 6.5t 4x4’s all-wheel drive capability means it will still be able to get around on snow and ice. It can also access small, residential roads to deliver bags of grit, and, when fitted with its demountable plough blade and hopper, undertake snow clearing and gritting operations.”
