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.

Following development and exhaustive testing the new HD+ 90i PH will be available in 2017. The first road roller with hydraulically assisted hybrid powertrain on the market is exceptionally fuel-efficient, quiet and environmentally friendly.

Hamm displayed a prototype of a hybrid powertrain for the HD+ 90i tandem roller at Bauma. The innovative concept has been developed to save fuel costs and maintenance effort. This new development combines the traditional internal combustion engine with a hydraulic accumulator. The internal combustion engine covers the base load while a hydraulic accumulator meets peak loads.

The Bomag BW120SL-5 tandem vibratory roller’s intelligent vibration control delivers optimum compaction with minimal passes

The BW120SL-5 tandem vibrator roller is powered by a 25-hp (18.5-kW) Kubota diesel engine that meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards without requiring a diesel particulate filter.
The BW120SL-5 tandem vibrator roller is powered by a 25-hp (18.5-kW) Kubota diesel engine that meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards without requiring a diesel particulate filter.

Offering high 4,320 vpm (72 Hz) vibration frequency, the BOMAG BW120SL-5 tandem vibratory roller features Intelligent Vibration Control (IVC) to increase compaction efficiency. With IVC, the exciter system guarantees consistent compaction of the material with reliable results achieved in minimal passes. Adding the optional BOMAG Economizer to the roller removes the guesswork out of compaction and eliminates over-compaction by measuring and displaying material stiffness via a simple-to-read LED light gauge on the dash.

Large drum diameter on the new BOMAG BW206AD-5 tandem vibratory roller improves surface smoothness

The new highway class BOMAG BW206AD-5 tandem vibratory roller boasts a larger, 55.1-inch (1,400-mm) drum diameter than previous 84.1-inch (2,135-mm) drum models to deliver a smoother finish and improve mat quality. Its large drum diameter puts more impact surface area in contact with the asphalt to help prevent mat pushing and shoving and eliminate the potential for bow waves in front of the drum, even when working at higher speeds on tender mats.
