I'd be really interested to hear your first hand comparison between the two platforms once you've got a few miles on the Fuso.Here is my" in progress" build. I built the camper last year for a 450 Ford. I finally landed my Fuso dream vehicle and started building a flat bed for general truck use and to haul the camper. Getting a dog "habitat" kennel out of the deal also Locally built SIP panels are used for the camper and dog house.
Quite a difference between this COE and conventional diesel PU I have owner. I have owned several Dodge Cummins and Powerstrokes. I have owned 2WD Isuzu in the past also so I was expecting the over the wheel, straight axle ride. It is a rough ride, even on the smoothest re-paved interstates slight bump in the road are felt.I'd be really interested to hear your first hand comparison between the two platforms once you've got a few miles on the Fuso.
Truco Sur Americano...Nick Disjunkt (JIM THE TRUCK Blog) had some trouble with rocks getting stuck in the DUALS, but i cannot find the exact page on his website.
duel: a contest with deadly weapons arranged between two people in order to settle a point of honor. (i.e. nothing to do with tires )
There is also conern of being able to air down a dually tire for several reasons. Firstly, most dually tires are high load range with stiffer than SRW sidewalls, i.e. designed to carry heavy loads or you likely would not need dual rear tires. They do not air down well, the lips are different than normal truck tires and the insides of the tires can actually rub together at low pressure or high loads, causing both tires to fail.
Dually tires are for stability and for heavy loads, not for serious off road work.
