QUARRY & CONSTRUCTION
Isuzu trucks have been in Australia since 1972 and during that 40 years or so, our engineers have constantly refined the model range and expanded specifications to match the needs of specific applications such as tippers and agitators. In the case of tippers, this is evident in the range of transmissions and suspensions available, and with agitators, low tare weight componentry is available such as aluminium wheels and Hendrickson airbag suspensions.
CABS FOR THOSE 8+ HOUR WORK DAYS
The moment you climb into an Isuzu cab you'll notice just how easy it is to get in and out with the full 90° opening door and conveniently placed steps and grab handles. With F, FX and Giga models, the ISRI 6860 drivers' seat with a full array of suspension and position adjustments and integrated seat belt leaves nothing wanting in driver comfort. Wide view electric exterior mirrors and expansive glass provide exceptional visibility, while an ultra-functional dash with information and entertainment options combine to make this cab arguably, the most comfortable around. Add the safety assured by R29 Cab Strength certification and a host of driver friendly features such as airbags, ABS, and traction control, it's no wonder Isuzu drivers simply refer to it as a brilliant package!
DRIVE TRAIN WITH HIGH LOAD CAPACITY COMPONENTRY
Starting with high capacity, high-torque Isuzu engines, choice of manual, automated Manual (AMT), or Allison automatic transmissions (depending on model) and Isuzu or Meritor rear axles, the engineering of Isuzu drivetrains is matched to all the rigorous demands of a working day, be that pulling out of a pit or driving in constant stop-start applications. See the range of chassis and drivetrain componentry available from all the Isuzu models suited to tipper and agitator applications. A choice of steel spring or airbag on 4x2 and 6x4 models and the toughest of them all, an Isuzu 6 rod suspension is available on 6x4 models (again, depending on the model).
