Here’s a Hot Tip: Isuzu Versatility Is Second To None

Equipped with versatility and a ‘can-do’ attitude, the broad range of Isuzu factory tippers is ready to get to work tackling any challenge.

With eight models to choose from, Isuzu tippers feature the qualities that have made Isuzu Australia’s number one truck range for the past 25 years.

GVM ratings range from 4,500 kg to 10,400 kg, load capacity from 2.0 cubic metres to 3.8 cubic metres and with a choice of single or crew cab models, the renowned ability of Isuzu tippers to manage rough conditions makes them ideal for many work-types, perfect for landscapers, nurseries, local councils and more.

There’s even an all-wheel drive model, the NLS 200. With its narrow cab and 2.0 cubic metre tipper body the NLS excels in low traction conditions often found on work sites.

Organisations nationwide have praised the present range for its ability to be driven virtually from the dealership showroom onto the worksite*.

Fleet Procurement Manager, Glen Reece, said the NLS 200 has been an invaluable addition for the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.

“The Isuzu provides us with a vehicle narrow enough to park in the middle of the road for median strip maintenance,” he said.

“Our team can load straight onto the back of the truck without disrupting traffic.”

The Isuzu Tipper range credentials have been built up over many years.  A positive experience with an NPR 300 Tipper led Scott Wallace of Priority Tree Care to invest in further Isuzu trucks.

“The NPR 300 Tipper is used to tow a stump grinding machine. With its drop sides it makes loading the grindings and wood a lot easier,” Scott said.

“We purchased the NPR 300 Tipper in 2004 and have had no dramas with it. We decided to follow suit with the new truck (a 2013 FRR 600) and opt for another Isuzu.”

For Enzo Morabito, from ACT-based Boss Haulage it was the comfort and convenience features that came up trumps.

The company uses its FRR 500 Tipper to transport loads in its haulage, earthmoving, road maintenance, equipment hire and materials supply business.

Mr Morabito said his Isuzu FRR 500 was an enjoyable ride.

“The easy control provided by the truck’s steering makes the drive quite pleasurable, while the ride is smooth and comfortable,” he said.

Factory-built peace of mind

The hardy features and creature comforts that have made Isuzu Tippers popular with these operators are available ready to drive away from Isuzu dealers, as the models are factory-built.

The high quality ShinMaywa tipping bodies feature robust 3.2mm all steel deck plate construction, fast 20 second up and down hydraulic hoist, auto release and two-way tailgate.

Power is provided by proven Euro V-compliant Isuzu SiTEC Series III engines, while inside the cab the generous appointments complemented by the digital audio visual unit with its big 6.2 inch touch screen and a host of features.

Finally, all Isuzu tippers are backed up by comprehensive Isuzu warranties and supported by the industry leading Isuzu Care program.
