LJX Tree Services takes on third Fuso Canter

Fuso Canter

Euro Commercials has delivered a third FUSO Canter to Auchterarder-based LJX Tree Services after the company saw an advert for pre-built Canters fitted with tree surgeon bodies.

Two 3.5-tonne Canter 3C13 and one 7.5-tonne Canter 7C15 have joined the LJX fleet, despite the company working more than 400 miles away from Euro Commercial’s South Wales dealership.

LJX Tree Services director Dan Kerr said: “The fact that there are 400 miles between us hasn’t been a problem. Euro Commercials has been able to provide us with the right trucks, at the right price, and, crucially, within short timeframes which have allowed us to maintain service levels to our customers – we’d have waited a lot longer if the vehicles had to be built from scratch.

“The Canter also has three full-sized seats,” said Kerr.

“This gives it a big advantage over one of its few competitors, which only has a small seat in the centre. It means we can send a team out, and they can all travel in safety and comfort. Unlike most vehicles in its weight segment, the 3.5-tonne Canter is not based on a van, so isn’t too flimsy for the job. It’s a proper little truck. The 7.5-tonner, meanwhile, is highly productive, due to its fantastic payload potential.”
