Isuzu Trucks has revealed a new medium-duty dual control truck targeting the waste and recycling management industries.

The dual control F Series comes in three iterations: the FVY 240-300, FVD 165-300 and FVZ 260-300.

The models will bolster Isuzu’s current range for the waste industry, joining the current FSR 140-260 Dual Control.

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) national sales manager Les Spaltman says the new vehicles have "impressive" payload and capacity for their size and provide manoeuvrability in tight-access urban environments.

"With payload and power-to-weight advantages critical factors in our approach, these dual control solutions really stand out in the market," Spaltman says.

"Part of the rationale for selecting the FVY platform for this job was the availability of the Hendrickson HAS460 airbag suspension system in the rear.

"This industry-leading component alone represented a huge weight saving of around 500kg, as compared to more common multi-leaf steel spring suspension set-ups.

"This in itself was an operator advantage, and one of many we’ve sought to apply to this particular spec."

Isuzu will unveil the FVY 240-300 at the Australasian Waste & Recycling Expo (AWRE) in Sydney on October 30-31.

"We’re committed to delivering cost-effective, fit-for-purpose capital equipment that’s highly competitive and meets genuine need," Spaltman says.

"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 have a longstanding partnership, and we continue to offer our services and support in their efforts towards fostering better waste and recycling management."
