With rubber matting and flooring for horseboxes and stables among its portfolio of products, Rubber Manufacturing Services (RMS) was so pleased with its first Mitsubishi Fuso Canter 3.5-tonner that it’s replaced it with another one.
The Elworth, Sandbach, Cheshire-based firm’s latest acquisition is a long-wheelbase 3C15 fitted with an aluminium dropside body courtesy of Boalloy Fastruck of Congleton. Supplied through dealer Enza, the newcomer is equipped with optional air-conditioning and reversing sensors.
The Canter is now being used to deliver products throughout the Midlands and the North of England. “It gives us a 1.5-tonne payload which it carries with ease,” says RMS director, Scott Raybould. “Going for the long wheelbase means we’ve been able to opt for a 13ft body on which we can carry two pallets of mats. Each pallet is 6ft long end-to-end. Most 3.5-tonners are not really rugged enough for what we need,” he adds. “But the Canter is a proper little truck.”
