Environmental Recycling Australasia (ERA) has ordered a 2016 model Isuzu’s FSR 850 to join its Melbourne-based fleet.
According to ERA Director, James Bartel, the company's three FSR trucks are fitted with a West-Trans skip-loader, and the fourth will be no different.
“Isuzu deals with all of it. They send the cabin and tray over to West Trans and liaise with them throughout the whole process," said Bartel.
“The Isuzu dealers have been great throughout and the trucks are fantastic. We might do 30-40 bins a day, so we need a truck that’s strong and really reliable. The Isuzus do the job with no issues at all."
The FSR 850 offers 176kW of power at 2,400 rpm, with torque of 706Nm at 1,450 rpm.
