One of the most keenly fought truck sales battles in Australia is within the waste and recycling industry.

A huge industry that grows as our population and our consumption, both household and personal, grows.

Isuzu has been a major player in the space over the years and the top-selling brand is looking to have an even greater presence in waste and recycling in coming years.

And the upcoming Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) in Sydney is a great place to show off the Isuzu vehicles ready to get to work in the industry.

Isuzu will headline their product showcase with the vehicle seen above – an FXY 1500 (FXY 240-350 6×4) dual control side-loader.

The Isuzu F-Series refuse truck was developed by Superior-PAK

Power comes from a 257kW (344hp)/1,422Nm rated turbo-diesel engine mated to an Allison 4430 automatic transmission.

The truck rides on Hendrickson HAS461 rear airbag suspension and there’s Meritor axles with cross-locks and an ISRI 6860 air-suspended seat.

Isuzu National Truck Sales Manager, Les Spaltman telling that the truck should prove a hit.

“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.”

The AWRE is being held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney on the 29th and 30th of August.
