Isuzu to showcase new heavy lifter at AWRE

Isuzu Australia (IAL) is exhibiting its latest waste management heavy lifter at the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE), which will be held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, 29-30 August 2018.

According to IAL, AWRE brings together the “latest thinking around waste and recycling, and the products that are employed in the waste collection, processing recovery and recycling processes”.

IAL will present a truck developed by waste equipment company, Superior-PAK, in the AWRESOME product showcase.

The FVY, rated at 24,000kg gross vehicle mass and 36,000kg gross combination mass, is reportedly an ideal platform for waste applications with its “brawny” turbo-charged and intercooled diesel engine rated at 221 kw at 2,400 RPM and 981 nM at 1,450 RPM. The emission control system comprises 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.”

IAL National Truck Sales Manager, Les Spaltman said Isuzu was pleased to be supporting AWRE in 2018.

“One key to Isuzu’s success lies in developing reliable and efficient trucks that 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.

“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,” he said.
