Working through its local dealer, Highway Motors Inc., Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America leased a Canter FE160 cabover with dry van body to Black Dog Salvage Inc. in Roanoke, Va., for use in its architectural salvage business. The salvage company featured the Fuso Canter on an episode of the TV-series Salvage Dawgs on the DIY Network.
Black Dog Salvage’s Canter FE160 work truck helped hosts Mike Whiteside and Robert Kulp lead their crew in dismantling and salvaging floors, doors and a complete staircase from the Old Stagecoach Inn, a historical building near Abingdon, Va., that had been damaged by a tornado.
“We’re very pleased that the team at Black Dog Salvage has chosen a Fuso truck to help fulfill their truck transport needs,” said Josh Tregear, MFTA’s manager of marketing communications. “They’re a great group to work with, and they’re dedicated to saving historically interesting and valuable architectural treasures that would otherwise fall victim to demolition. We look forward to a long relationship.”
According to Mike Whiteside, co-owner of Black Dog Salvage, “The Fuso is a great truck for our needs. It’s done everything we’ve asked of it, and it’s economical and easy to operate.”
