Isuzu Trucks unveils new power units

Commercial vehicle manufacturer, Isuzu Trucks, has expanded its Made To Stock (MTS) Series II power unit range, which are supplied to be ‘ready to work’.

The range has been designed and rigorously tested to operate in a variety of Australian applications and conditions, according to Isuzu Trucks. “From pumping water to driving hydraulics systems, the units are available in a range of configurations and power outputs. Each power unit is put through its paces before being delivered to customers, ensuring performance and reliability.”

The headline addition to the new range is the introduction of three new six-cylinder (Isuzu 6HK1) variants, including both mechanical injection and common rail options and spanning a horsepower range from 192hp through to 284hp.

Isuzu Trucks said in a statement that in practical terms, the key upside of this expansion is efficiencies around parts commonality, especially in relation to the new 6HK1 power unit options. “Cooling packages have also been improved across the entire MTS Series II range, with new locally-developed units designed and tempered for Australian conditions. Capabilities have been boosted for higher ambient temperatures, with plate and bar construction for increased strength and a quiet high-flow fan.”

The skid bases have also reportedly been upgraded with added strength and anti-vibration mounts.

Isuzu has also reported that its locally-developed Engine Controller Pro will now be available as standard across the MTS Series II range, including engine and pump protection, programmable start/stop/run, IP65 weather-proof enclosure, emergency stop, pressure flow transducer input, 4G remote interface (optional) and LINAK throttle actuator (optional).
