Dual control kerbside range meets industry needs

Isuzu’s new dual control waste and refuse truck line-up with four models available, plus wheelbase options has arrived when the company said it is optimistic about the future.

Isuzu has told Inside Waste that, with calls from the industry for greater productivity throughout its operations, this release of low tare weight dual control waste solutions has been timely.

According to the company, it has already taken multiple orders for the locally developed dual control units from customers throughout the country.

The 16,500 kg and 24,000 kg GVM dual control models feature robust componentry including Hendrickson airbag rear suspension, which delivers substantial tare weight advantages – a key advantage in this demanding application.

Robust suspension

Meanwhile, the FVZ dual control models use Isuzu’s robust 6-rod and trunnion taper leaf type rear suspension, offering excellent levels of cross-articulation for work in tough terrain common to this unforgiving application.

The reduced tare weight coupled with the Isuzu commonality of parts adds additional advantage in this tough application.

The Isuzu FVZ dual control range also specifies market leading chassis and driveline componentry as well as varied wheelbase options and in cab appointments, making for an extremely competitive proposition.

Isuzu Trucks Dual Control range includes:

  • FSR 140/120-260 Dual Control (14,000/12,000 kg GVM)
  • FVD 165-300 Dual Control (16,500 kg GVM)
  • FVY 240-300 Dual Control MWB & LWB (24,000 kg GVM)
  • FVZ 240-300 Dual Control MWB & MLWB (24,000 kg GVM)

Isuzu said that its scope of vehicles can meet a variety of opportunities from a surge in demand for last mile delivery or supplying solutions to the needs of trade and emergency services applications.

The conclusion of 2019 also marked 31 consecutive years of Australian truck market leadership for Isuzu. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company said that the network remained fully operational and ready to meet the needs of its customer base.
