Canter 7.5t / 8.55t

The workhorse

If you need to make fewer journeys, or carry more materials per trip but you still need an easy-to-drive, agile truck that’s at home in city streets, the Canter 7.5t delivers a market-leading payload. Developed for congested, urban environments, and with a load bearing capacity of five tonnes, it’s the Canter that lets you carry more.

If you’re looking for even more payload, the Canter 8.55t offers over a tonne extra. This weight lifter gives you all the capability of the 7.5t plus crucial carrying power. Yet the Canter 8.55t is still less than 2.2m wide and highly manoeuvrable, allowing access to zones restricted to the 10t limit.

Canter can deliver under pressure

Got a tricky drop-off to make? Not sure if you’ll be able to squeeze through? With Canter, you can. Its short wheelbase, narrow cab and small turning circle means you can manoeuvre into the narrowest of spaces. The low cab and deep side windows provide excellent visibility, making it perfect for urban use. Plus loading/unloading is easier with a low load compartment sill and frame height. The Canter 7.5t’s market-leading payload (up to 5.01t, or 6t with the 8.55t model) means you can carry more. And there are plenty of customisable extras, such as tail lifts or refrigerated bodies.

Construction

Canter can carry more

The Canter 7.5t has the best payload on the market for its vehicle class (up to 5.01t) – and if that’s not enough for you, its big brother, the Canter 8.55t, offers an additional tonne. Strength doesn’t mean that you miss out on manoeuvrability either: developed for congested, urban environments, both models are less than 2.2m wide and highly manoeuvrable, allowing access to zones restricted to the 10t limit. It’s your perfect construction partner.

Landscaping

Canter can make your work easier

Looking for a comfortable ride, a roomy cab, manoeuvrability and the best payload on the market? With the Canter 7.5t you can have it all. And if you need even greater carrying capacity, the Canter 8.55t offers an additional tonne of payload. Plus Canter’s low-bed platform makes it easy to transport equipment such as ride-on mowers. If you prefer a trailer, that’s no problem either, with a towing capacity of up to 3.5t.

Don’t just take our word for it

Canter performs for Purity Brewing Co

The Good Pub Guide’s Brewery of the Year for 2018 runs three 7.5t Canters. According to Logistics Manager Ian Back: “The Canter’s great strengths are its body and payload allowance, which we make full use of, and its outstanding reliability. We bought our first a couple of years ago and it hasn’t missed a beat. This robust engineering and build quality have proved invaluable in enabling us to meet our delivery commitments to customers.”

Proper Oils deliver with Canter 8.55t

Three bespoke-bodied 8.55t Canters are oiling the wheels of success for West London-based business Proper Oils. Managing Director Stephen Hurton says: “These new trucks have enabled us to increase efficiency within our cooking oil delivery and waste oil collection service, by adding more ‘drops’ to each route. They are superbly manoeuvrable and very easy to drive, while the DUONIC gearboxes also help to improve safety by leaving our staff free to concentrate fully on traffic conditions, rather than worrying about which gear they’re in.”
