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.

Run More Types of Mix, Improve Production and Save Fuel

If the dryer exhaust is too hot, then the plant wastes fuel while shortening bag life.
If the dryer exhaust is too hot, then the plant wastes fuel while shortening bag life.

Efficient and consistent drying is one of the biggest challenges in operating an asphalt plant. For example, open graded friction course (OGFC), stone mastic asphalt (SMA), or High RAP and RAS can cause high baghouse temperatures. Furthermore, virgin or low RAP mixes, dense graded mixes and warm mix cause very low baghouse temperatures. For these reasons, plant operators have found it very hard to do everything without physically changing the drum flighting – plus the consequences of these temperature changes can spell real trouble.
