East London-based Enviro Waste has added three new trucks to its fleet of Fuso Canters, two years after it took delivery of its first 7.5-tonne model.

Enviro Waste took its first 7.5-tonne Canter two years ago, buying two more the following year.

In its newest hire agreement with Mercedes-Benz financial services, Enviro Waste added a fourth 7.5-tonner and two 3.5-tonne models to its fleet.

The new trucks are fitted with Freuhauf tipping box bodies, and the 7.5-tonne vehicle also has 500kg Dhollandia column lift.

Enviro Waste operations manager Mark Oates said it was the Fuso Canter's dimensions and payload allowance that sealed the deal for the operator.

He said: “It’s a brilliant urban vehicle. We run an intensive operation up to six days per week, and make full use of the Canter’s carrying capacity.

"Its minimal footprint and cab-over-engine design mean the vehicle is also highly manoeuvrable and ideally suited to work in tight city streets.”
