Isuzu And AWRE Back With A Bang

Isuzu And AWRE Back With A Bang

Isuzu Trucks will return to the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE) this year to showcase its contributions to the world of waste management.   

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) has long had a presence in providing road transport solutions to the waste and recycling industries and the brand has enjoyed the privilege of being the best-selling Australian truck maker 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. 

Total Control 

Developed in Australia and with celebrated origins in Isuzu’s proven FSR 140-260 4x2 Dual Control model, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) designed, and ADR compliant FS and FV Dual Control range presents value coupled with the 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.

The Works  

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 brand’s comprehensive bumper-to-bumper three-year, 300,000 km warranty and three-year roadside assist. All with no hour limitations, important for the refuse market.   

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.”  

AWRE will take place on the 24th and 25th of August at the International Convention Centre in Sydney. Tickets and information can be found at the AWRE website.
