Isuzu are back with a bang
Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) will be returning to the AWRE this year to showcase their contributions to the world of waste management.
Isuzu has long held a presence in providing road transport solutions to the waste and recycling industries and the brand has enjoyed the privilege of holding the position of Australian truck market leader for 33 consecutive years.
On the stand this year, Isuzu will showcase its FVY Dual Control model, which is specifically designed for kerbside waste applications. The truck’s fully integrated, factory-backed dual control functionality has been well received in recent years, with a number of waste and refuse fleets turning to the market leader for their transport solutions.
Developed in Australia and with celebrated origins in Isuzu’s proven FSR 140-260 4×2 Dual Control model, the OEM designed, and ADR complied FS and FV dual control range presents value coupled with the brand of reliability Isuzu Trucks is famous for. Further, the OEM and body builder matched and supplied Power Take Off (PTO) system provides a reliable and precise connection between truck and waste body.
Further refinement for local application includes the factory developed engine and body control module, designed specifically for the Australian market.
On stand at AWRE 2022 is an FVY 240-300 model from the 16,500 kg and 24,000 kg GVM dual control line-up – featuring industry-leading componentry designed to deliver substantial tare weight advantages.
The soon to be released MY22 Dual control range will also feature Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a unique to market Electronic Braking System (EBS), providing superior driving performance and additional peace of mind for both operators and fleet managers.
Other key components in the FVY Dual Control models include hard-working Meritor axles, with the FVZ and FVY featuring the MT44-144 rear axle tandem set with driver-controlled inter-axle lock and cross-locks on both axles.
Brakes are Meritor Q-Plus dual circuit full air ‘S-cam’ front and rear brakes with auto slack adjusters and ABS as standard.
The Isuzu FV dual control models are backed by the brands comprehensive bumper-to-bumper 3-year, 300,000 km warranty and 3-year roadside assist. All with no hour limitation, important for the refuse market.
Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) National Sales Manager, Les Spaltman said the factory developed range had been thoughtfully designed for rugged Australian conditions.
“We have a highly competitive, low tare weight solution on offer here – one which ticks some key boxes for Australian operators,” he said.
“I’m pleased to say that since updates were introduced in 2019, we’ve enjoyed some great sales success across the dual control range, with many finding a home in waste fleets across Australia.
“What we’ve worked really hard to develop with these models is a compelling total cost of ownership argument and I think we’ve hit the nail on the head this time.”
