Isuzu fires up for AFAC19

Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) is set to display a selection of trucks and Isuzu Power Solutions products at this year’s Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council’s (AFAC) event, to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 27 to 30 August.

Isuzu will showcase its NPS 75-155 4x4 model, which is available with an automated manual transmission (AMT), described by the company as an ideal transport solution for the emergency services.

IAL National Sales Manager, Les Spaltman, expressed his excitement in anticipation of attending AFAC this year.

“It’s always a great event to attend, and with AFAC19 being held in Melbourne, we have a greater ability to showcase Isuzu’s comprehensive offering to the fire and emergency service sectors,” said Spaltman.

Alongside the trucks at the IAL stand, Isuzu Power Solutions will be highlighting a range of off-highway power solutions. The 4JG1 will be on the podium while the 3CA1 will be presented on the back of the Isuzu NPS 75-155 truck.

As the first factory-built, two-pedal, 4x4 light-duty truck, the NPS 75-155 comes with an AMT that has been specifically calibrated for Australian off-road conditions, making it, according to Isuzu, a ready-made, tailored transport solution for emergency services, including fire authorities and brigades.

Integrating technology from both Isuzu Trucks and Isuzu Power Solutions, the NPS 75-155 is custom-fitted with the 3CA1 engine for the country fire authorities, providing a capable package that can match the extreme conditions in which they operate.

IAL Head of Power Solutions, Matt Sakhaie, explains how the engines are being used throughout the industry.

“We’ve worked in conjunction with various country fire authorities to produce pumps that will be installed on the back of their fire-fighting trucks, and these you can find on the Isuzu stand,” said Sakhaie.

Isuzu Power Solutions provides reliable and fit-for-purpose power solutions for a diverse range of industries, including road transport, agriculture and emergency services.
