Metroll a leading Australian manufacturer and supplier of roofing, cladding, rainwater, structural and fencing products, has taken delivery of a new Fuso Fighter 2427 for steel delivery in the Dubbo area.
The new Fuso Fighter 2427 Fighter will service an area of 300km rides from Dubbo centre covering different terrain from the hilly country of the Blue Mountains to the flatter region of the central west.
Metroll Dubbo General Manager, Cary James, says that each Metroll location provides feedback on its various equipment including trucks to head office so that a holistic decision can be made on product selection.
“The trucks are chosen on past performance,” he says. “The Fuso Fighter has done a great job for a long time, so we have stuck with it.”
The Metroll Dubbo team is very pleased with its new 2427 Fighter, which has now been on the road for around six months.
The truck was ordered through Hartwigs in Dubbo, which organised for the truck to be specified with a custom body designed for metal delivery, including a Hiab crane that can be used to safely unload the cargo in compact delivery spaces.
It is rated to 23-tonnes and runs a 7.5-litre four-cylinder diesel that generates 270hp and 784Nm of torque. Metroll opted for the driver-friendly Allison automatic six-speed transmission, while a nine-speed Eaton manual transmission is also available.
