There is always a great selection of used Mitsubishi Fuso trucks for sale at Truckpages. The trickiest part of looking for a Mitsubishi Canter is knowing what to call it. The lightweight truck is sold new via Mercedes-Benz dealers This may sound strange, but both manufacturers share a joint parent company, Daimler. Prior to this, the trucks were sold at Volvo Truck dealerships. Still with us? The logo and Mitsubishi name and three diamond logo is used elsewhere in the UK – primarily on L200 pick up trucks. This UK business bears no relation to the truck side (like Renault Trucks and Renault Cars and Isuzu Trucks and Isuzu Pick ups).
To confuse matters further, Daimler appear to be trying to drop the ‘Mitsubishi’ element of the brand – this should work in the long run as it distances itself from the pick up manufacturer. This is why on Truckpages we list ‘Mitsubishi Fuso’ on this page and ‘Mitsubishi‘ elsewhere – the first for the Canter trucks and the second for the L200 Pick ups.
If you are thinking of buying a recovery truck, it’s worth looking at why other operators specify the truck that they have. Kingsbridge Auto Repair & Rescue have recently taken delivery of their third Fuso Canter, so they must be fans. Their new truck is plated at 7.5 tonnes, but with its 2.5 tonne spec lift and dolly which means that it can recover vehicles as large as a motorhome and as awkward as a 4x4. In addition, the crew cab allows the recovery truck to take not just the broken down vehicle, but also up to six passengers. The…
FUSO, one of Asia's leading commercial vehicle manufacturers, is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its Canter light truck.

In addition to consistent driving performance and comfort, the Canter has achieved ever-higher levels of fuel…
Just a handful of months after the trucks reveal at the IAA last September, the all-electric Fuso eCanter is rolling off the European production line. Mitsubishi Fuso’s parent company Daimler, (which it shares with Mercedes Trucks) threw a bash to celebrate the milestone. The event at the FUSO Europe production plant in Tramagal, Portugal, saw Karl Deppen, CEO Daimler Truck Asia, and Arne Barden, CEO FUSO Europe, announced another milestone for the Tramagal plant with the 250,000th FUSO Canter produced on-site. Arne Barden said: “The team is proud to build the iconic FUSO Canter here at Tramagal, now in its…
Tool and equipment hire specialist Speedy Services has taken a big step towards a sustainable customer delivery model by commissioning its first two zero-emission FUSO eCanters. The trucks are already transporting products from the company’s range based at a depot near Whitehaven, Cumbria and a branch in Warrington, where it serves a client base comprised largely of building firms.

Speedy’s Fleet Director Aaron Powell – winner of the Private Sector…
When Attridge Scaffolding needed a new 7.5-tonner, the FUSO Canter stood a good chance – as payload is king in the scaffolding game. The Fuso Canter’s leading payload, as well as the driver-friendly external proportions, make it ideal for the business. Attridge Scafffolding’s latest Canter, its first from the all-new range introduced earlier this year, arrived via the Stoke-on-Trent branch of Dealer eStar Truck & Van. Six of the eight 7.5-tonners that work from the operator’s depot in Brereton, near Rugeley, wear the FUSO ‘three diamonds’ badge. The new truck has replaced a five-year-old example from the previous Canter model…
