Mitsubishi Fuso Introduces New 2013 Model-Year FUSO Canters

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America, Inc. (MFTA) has announced the availability of its 2013 model-year medium-duty cabover trucks. The new 2013 FUSO Canters are in production now, and the first models were displayed in the Mitsubishi Fuso booth at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, March 5-8. These trucks feature the same great lower-cost-of-ownership benefits as the 2012 models, with some additional refinements and options.

In addition to the five cab colors MFTA has traditionally offered, the 2013 Canters can be ordered in Solid Black—which helps give these trucks a striking appearance, and can save some customers from having to paint the cabs to match their company colors.

All new 2013 Canters will come standard with dual batteries, and will also include a factory-installed PTO wiring harness designed to receive an optional, matched control switch and to make connection to optional PTOs easy. Moreover, a 33-gallon side-mounted fuel tank will once again be available as a factory-installed option, and mirrors will have new, wider mounting arms that facilitate the installation of bodies with outside widths up to 102” on all Canter FE models, including the Canter FE160 Crew Cab.

BOMAG’s BW190AD-4 AM Tandem Vibratory Roller Features New Asphalt Manager II Technology

Thanks to BOMAG’s exclusive Asphalt Manager II technology, the BW190AD-4 AM tandem vibratory roller delivers continuously optimized compaction performance, regardless of operator experience.

A special front drum designed to work with the new Asphalt Manager II system automatically measures and controls compaction performance. As the material becomes stiffer, Asphalt Manager II begins to adjust the angle/vector of the drum’s output energy from fully vertical to fully horizontal. This helps ensure that optimum surface quality results are achieved, while avoiding asphalt-damaging over-compaction.

Versatile Talbert 65-Ton Spread-Axle Trailer with E2Nitro / 70-Ton Close-Coupled

The 65-ton spread-axle trailer outfitted with the E2Nitronitrogen-assisted equalizing system by Talbert Manufacturing provides haulers the versatility they need to switch axle configurations and comply with individual state road regulations. This trailer can also be operated in a 70-ton close-coupled configuration.

Haulers can use the 65SA with a close-coupled fourth axle for a 70-ton rating or a spread-axle configuration for a 65-ton rating, and the trailer’s empty weight is lighter compared to West Coast-style trailers. The trailer’s East Coast-style E2Nitro spreader features a bearing pivot and pivot lockout for backing the trailer. In addition, the E2Nitro operator can hydraulically set axle loads and keep them there in all terrains. It also allows for a 14-foot, 1-inch spread between the third and fourth axle, which is ideal for haulers traveling into states that require that spread.
