The Mitsubishi Canter 75C15 is a 150hp 7.5 tonner sold through the Mercedes Truck dealer network when new.
This good all-rounder has an excellent payload and competes well in this regard with the similar-looking Isuzu N75.
This is the lower-powered model at just 150hp – there is a 180hp version also available for those looking for more grunt.
Typically bought for high payload, relatively local, operations, expect to find recovery bodies, beavertails and tippers fitted to the Canter 75C15 chassis – nearly always with an automatic transmission.

Running a lightweight tipper on a Tarmac job around London needs the best payload. It was the Fuso Canter’s ability to carry as much as a tonne more than a ‘traditional European’ 7.5 tonner that sealed the deal on a replacement for the outgoing Canter for UK Surfacings. Ready for high-payload work - the pair of new Canters at 7.5 and 8.55 tonnes GVW The 7.5-tonne Canter is light enough to offer an exceptional body and payload allowance of just under 5.0 tonnes.
