Interhaul reflects on Isuzu agitator

Concrete transportation business, Interhaul, has reflected on taking delivery of an Isuzu FYJ 2000 8x4 ‘agitator’ spec’d model in March, bolstering its Queensland operations.

Interhaul Founder, John Polites, said his business has been transporting concrete since 1988, and sub-contracting concrete deliveries for Nucon Concrete since 2003.

Polites told Isuzu that he believed that upholding Interhaul’s reputation and demanding workload required tough, reliable delivery trucks, which is why he chose the FYJ 2000.

The FYJ 2000 has a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 30 tonnes, 257kW at 2,000rpm and 1,422Nm at 1,400 rpm, “making it a powerful, purpose built truck suitable for a wide variety of applications”, according to Isuzu.

“The agitator model has been specified to suit the particular demands of concrete agitator work.

“The FYJ’s power is generated by Isuzu’s turbocharged and air-to-air intercooled SITEC III 350 6-cylinder, 24-valve engine, which maintains Isuzu’s renowned reliability while offering enough grunt to navigate rough terrain.”

The FYJ 2000 has an Allison 4430 series 6-speed automatic transmission as well as cruise control, Isri 6860 air-suspension seat with pneumatic lumbar support.

“The truck operates in mostly metropolitan areas, but it does some off-road driving around worksites and handles it brilliantly,” said Polites. “It negotiates heavy traffic, roundabouts, narrow streets and poorly prepared, tight access worksites with ease. The truck’s turning circle is fantastic.”

Isuzu has said that the FYJ 2000 safety features includes: driver’s side airbag with seatbelt pretensioner, Anti-lock Braking Sytem (ABS), and Isuzu Electronic Stability Control (IESC), which can automatically detect and help correct a driver’s loss of control on the road.
