Small Truck, Big Payload

Your perfect partner to carry heavy loads to places that other Light Commercial Vehicles can't go. With a 1.6 tonne body and payload allowance, 2 metre cab width and a metre of load space gained with no bonnet, the Canter 3.5t gives you loads more space.

The Canter is the most versatile truck for whatever the road may take you.


The Canter 3.5t handles with ease, even in tight conditions. As a genuine all-rounder it has the longest body length of the segment and thus affords many individual body options. With a cab width of only 2 m you can get through narrow streets, where others can’t. All cabs offer ample space, and the independent suspension makes for good ride comfort and dynamic handling. In every respect the Canter 3.5t has what it takes - going where no other light truck dares to go.


The engines in Canter 3.5t: A clean solution​

The Canter 3.5t sets new standards in technical terms. Starting with the diesel engines with state-of-the-art common-rail technology and variable nozzle turbine technology, they all deliver high torque right from low engine speeds.


The Perfect Partner for the Job

The Canter 3.5t is your perfect partner on a mulitiude of tasks, giving you the capacity to carry bigger loads to places other Light Commercial Vehicles can't go, while remaining a precise and manoeuvrable truck. Some of the industries which the Canter has helped are:


The FUSO Canter for Landscaping - Time to grow your business

The compact Canter 3.5t expertly navigates tricky, narrow paths and tracks in parks and woodland while carrying more than bonneted LCVs.

 “The fact that it does not have a bonnet meant we were able to specify the bodies we needed yet restrict the overall length of the vehicles. This makes life a lot easier for our crews, particularly when they’re working in built-up areas.” - Founder of TR33, Tree Surgeons


The FUSO Canter for Building & Construction - Time to build your business

Small but tough, the Canter 3.5t carries heavy loads and has great driver visibility, making it perfectly suited to construction work on site and off.

“Before placing the order I discussed the auto ’box with my drivers and they were dead against it,but the dealership brought a demonstrator over for them to try and both were very quickly won over – they love the transmission now... we use them to carry building materials, aggregates and rubble, as well as pull trailers occasionally. It’s a tough job but the Canter is well-built and robust enough to take the punishment.” - Founder of Pollard & Co, Builders

“Another thing I really like about the Canter is its manoeuvrability. As well as being very agile, the Canter also has a fantastic driving position. You sit right over the front wheels, which means visibility is excellent. The cab is roomier too, and the suspension on the new seat is very welcome." - Co-founder of B & N Brickwork
