Building firm strengthens its fleet with FUSO

Essex building contractor BK Sargeant & Son is strengthening its ranks by calling up a proven tough performer, in the shape of a 3.5-tonne FUSO Canter tipper.

Based in rural Great Yeldham, Essex, the family-owned firm specialises in conversions and refurbishments of historic buildings – a role for which the Canter has demonstrated its fitness for purpose time and again.

“This is our eighth,” said director James Sargeant. “We’ve tried other vehicles in the past but for our particular set of requirements the Canter really is the ideal package.”

As a 3C15 model the new Canter is powered by a 3.0- litre common-rail turbo-diesel engine producing 110 kW (150 hp) and an impressive 370 Nm of torque which, thanks to variable turbine technology, is available from low engine speeds.

This engine drives through a smooth-shifting and fuel-efficient DUONIC automated dual-clutch transmission with eco mode, parking and creep functions. The chassis has a 2,500 mm wheelbase – the shortest of eight sizes available – and was fitted with an alloy tipping body by KMR Engineering, of Ipswich.
