Complete Package

From attributes such as durability and reliability, through to class-leading safety technology and aftersales support, the RTW N Series range is an out-and-out Australian favourite, and for good reason.

Beyond the varied range of top quality, pre-built turn-key bodies, there’s a huge selection of cab chassis platforms on offer, providing a fit-for-purpose transport solution for just about every trade application imaginable.

As always, safety remains a top priority with all light-duty 4x2 N Series RTW models bearing the next generation of trucking safety with Isuzu’s intelligent Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).

Hosting a range of innovative safety features, ADAS includes Advanced Emergency Braking system (AEB) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning system (LDW) and unique to Isuzu, the Traffic Movement Warning (TMW) feature, just to name a few.

Pioneered in 2006, Isuzu RTW range simply does it best for Australian tradespeople. Be it the industry leading three-year warranty on the body or the enormous range of drivers’ licence, two-pedal variants, Aussie tradies everywhere are calling time on their utes and realising genuine business efficiencies on offer within the Isuzu RTW range.

More With Less

Amongst those is sole trader Rob Toohey from Perth who runs a pressure cleaning business and recently took delivery of an NLR 45-150 Traypack.

“I had a ute and a trailer before and it was a pain in the neck because someone would call me up and offer me a small job and I’d be thinking to myself, ‘well, that’s half an hour of work just to hook up and detach the trailer when I’m finished,’ and a lot of times I’d turn it down,” Rob said. 

“Now that I have everything in the truck, when anybody calls me with a small job, I say, ‘yeah, I can be there in 15 minutes.’ Boom, go do the job and come back. It’s brilliant.”

Onwards & Upwards

On the NSW-Victoria boarder 23 Carpentry continues to grow its business and truck fleet.

The business, which ranges as far south as Melbourne and north up to Sydney, has added the displacement NQR 87-190 AMT Tipper to its range of smaller NLR Tippers.

“We already had a range of Isuzu NLR Tippers, which are very convenient for the staff to drive on a car licence, but we needed something specifically to transport machinery and materials to job locations,” explained Managing Director Paul Seaton.

“The NQR Tipper ticks all the boxes—it’s able to carry the load we needed and comes with a 3.8 metre tray, so we can use it for delivery to forklift material on and off.”

Large & In Charge

Up in the medium-duty segment, Brisbane-based landscaper Mariner Rood recently invested in a larger Isuzu FSR 140-260 Tipper for his Revive Landscape Construction fleet - to meet with growing demand and reduced down time.

“I can fit about seven cubic metres in each load, so that works out to four-and-a-half loads. In my old truck that would have taken 11 loads!” Mariner said.

“There’s less trips and less hours you've got to spend on the road. That's pretty much the reason I bought it… I go and pick up the bobcat. I can just fill the truck up, put the trailer on, chuck the machine on, and I can go home from there.”

Peace of Mind

All new Isuzu trucks within the Ready-to-Work range (with the exception of 4x4 models) are covered by Isuzu’s industry-leading 6-year warranty on the cab-chassis and 3-year warranty on the body, plus 6-years of Isuzu’s 24/7 Roadside Assist.
