Hertz Takes the Safe Route with Fuso Canters Addition

Hertz Australia Licensee, Australian Truck & 4WD Rentals, has recently taken delivery of its first 10 Fuso Canters that come standard with AEB, Lane Departure Warning System, Electric Stability Control, dual airbags and a reversing camera. It will introduce the trucks across its fleets in Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.

All Canters, except for the off-road 4x4 model, come standard with AEB, a radar/camera system that can automatically brake the truck if it senses an imminent collision. This system can even detect, and start braking for, pedestrians.

Australian Truck and 4WD Rentals State Manager, Paul Jukes, says Hertz highly values the safety of its customers.

"We are very excited to have the Fuso Canter with AEB join our Hertz fleet," Mr Jukes says. "The safety of our customers is paramount, so it makes sense to order a truck with the best safety equipment available. Having the pedestrian detection capability of the AEB is fantastic because many of these trucks operate in built-up areas."

All Hertz Canters can be driven on a car-licence and are specified with Duonic dual-clutch automated transmissions.

"The Duonic is fantastic for us and our customers," Mr Jukes says. "It just makes it easy for our customers to concentrate on driving without having to worry about changing gears and managing the clutch. It also takes away the risk of clutch damage."

The Canter 515 selected by Hertz also features independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering, which delivers a more car-like feel, while it also boasts class-leading tare weight.

All Fuso Canters come standard with a five-year manufacturer warranty, which covers the truck for five years or 200,000km, whichever comes first.
