Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting its latest waste management innovation at this year’s Australian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE), which will be held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney on August 29-30.
Featured on the Isuzu stand in the AWRESOME product showcase this year will an FVY developed by waste equipment experts Superior Pak.
Rated at 24,000kg GVM and 36,000kg GCM, the FVY is an ideal platform for waste applications with its brawny turbo-charged and intercooled diesel engine rated at 221kW@2400RPM and 981Nm@1450RPM.
The emission control system consists of cooled EGR with Exhaust Diesel Particulate Diffuser and is ADR 80/03 (Euro V) and EEV compliant.
“Offsetting the harsh stop-start nature of waste applications is the Allison 3500 automatic transmission and Hendrickson HAS460 rear airbag suspension both contributing to smooth and predictable operational behaviour,” IAL said in a statement.
“In addition to the Allison auto and Hendrickson rear airbag suspension, the Isuzu FVY benefits from industry-standard components, such as Meritor axles with cross-locks, Meritor Q-Plus brakes with ABS, and in the cab, the ISRI 6860 air-suspended seat.”
Inside the well-appointed cab, operators can enjoy the comfort of the ISRI 6860 seat, excellent vision and the wide array of features from the Digital Audio Visual Equipment (DAVE) unit, with standard SatNav, with options to include up to four camera inputs, reversing sensors and tyre pressure monitoring system, amongst other things, all available at an additional cost.
“One key to Isuzu’s success lies in developing reliable and efficient trucks can be adapted to broad range of applications and specifications including waste and recycling, and events like this help get the product in front of the right people,” IAL said.
“We’re continually striving to improve our offering and partnering and mixing with like-minded business and industry leaders ensures that we are exposed to the latest thinking and ideas.
“Isuzu and AWRE go back a long way and we want to continue to offer our services and support in their endeavours to facilitate better waste and recycling management.”
This year’s Expo takes place amidst great public scrutiny of current waste disposal and recycling management processes and significant shifts in thinking around waste generation and the green economy.
