FUSO 8.5 Tonne Canter

Size of a 7.5t. Payload of a 10t.

The FUSO Canter 8.55t truck, Exclusively by Mercedes-Benz, goes where its rivals daren’t. From open roads to narrow paths, tackling demanding tasks like construction, short-haul distribution and municipal work. All with a 6 tonne payload and fuel savings of up to 9%*.

Why the 8.5t FUSO Canter, Exclusively by Mercedes-Benz

Transporting heavy loads has never been easier with this heavy duty truck, especially with agility and DUONIC® automated dual clutch transmission. With nimble handling more associated with smaller trucks, and a large payload, this is the ultimate truck.


Technology and performance.


The engine

The even distribution of drive power between the front and rear axles ensures a high level of traction on all wheels. The all-wheel drive system can be engaged and disengaged, so making it extremely flexible and efficient. Even better off-road capability is ensured by the limited-slip differential in conjunction with the reduction gear. Fully disengaging the front wheels reduces wear and tear, fuel consumption and the diameter of the turning circle. Thanks to its broad ratio range, the transmission is able to cope with both slow off-road driving and high on-road speeds.

DUONIC transmission

DUONIC®, the world’s first automated dual clutch transmission for trucks, also improves comfort and efficiency. For you this means: convenient and fuel-efficient gear shifting without the interruption in tractive power commonly experienced with a conventional automatic transmission. The Eco Mode that we offer as standard is a further factor in helping you to drive more efficiently.

DUONIC Gearbox
Independent Suspension

Brake system

Plenty of grip on the road, maximum braking power off it. Excellent protection against dust and dirt: the front and rear drum brakes ensure an even level of braking with ABS and electronic brake force distribution (EBD).


The Canter features a high chassis load capacity. With enviable axle loads plus an optional 24 V interface, it is possible to fit a wide range of bodywork solutions.


Cab design

Our cab-over-engine concept is characterised by a short front overhang and thus excellent all-round visibility – the best prerequisities for all-wheel-drive operations and off-road manoeuvring. The crewcab provides you with up to seven full seats, two large stowage compartments underneath the rear seat bench and good legroom in all seats. The single cab offers three seats and a wide range of stowage facilities. The centre backrest of the front seat can be folded down and used to stand things on or as a desk.
