Truck of the Year


Where does the time ago? We’re already a third of the way through the year as we turn our attention to our April Truck of the Year entrants. The quality is high as we wind our way down that road to trucking glory, and bragging rights.

This month’s winner, picking up $300 worth of Isuzu merchandise, is Tamborine Skips. All monthly winners of course go into the running to win the end of year Grand Prize – a $6,000 visa cash card.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter your Isuzu today!

Tamborine Skips       

Adam Pearson from Tamborine Skips loves his road beast, the Isuzu FRR 110-260. “I bought the FRR in February from Mark at Gold Coast Isuzu. We fitted a Westrans Skip lifter on it and added some stickers. It’s a perfect truck for carting Skips up and down Mt Tamborine with 260hp being more than enough, and a manual gearbox for better engine braking coming back down again. It’s effortless to drive and is a great matchup to the Westrans DS60.”

The Ceiling Company

Whether it’s residential or commercial building, Brett Hall is bringing his skills and those of his staff at The Ceiling Co to bear all over town. And when they arrive at a job they do so in their beloved NPR 275.

Routley’s Bakery

Sam Routley sent us this snap of his Isuzu FRD 110-260, a truck that carries some popular Australian cargo in the form of pies and sausage rolls. But just like a pie needs sauce, this truck has some tasty additions in the form of “a custom-built body, aluminium floor, Thermoking fridge unit, and 1500kg tailgate lifter. This truck can move some pies and sausage rolls.”

Empire Logistics Management

With simple but smart looking livery, Empire Logistics Isuzu FXY 2500 10×4 cuts an impressive figure as it’s driving through the streets of Sydney. Whether it’s moving timber, scaffolding or formwork, interstate or locally, entrant David Parkers enjoys the “tri axle twin steer” and “massive rear-vehicle Palfinger loading crane” which can lift 1.8 tonne @ 10 metre.

Evolution Building Co

Andrew Cagnacci is no ordinary builder, as the name of his business suggests. Servicing high-end builds, Andrew is taking his business to the next level with his beautiful looking Isuzu NLR 200 Tipper. “From day one it’s been a dream to drive,” says Andrew “I’ve driven other Japanese trucks and this is the only one that feels like a car.”

Bullet Proof Roofing

Providing reliable service to customers in the building game is what it’s all about for Bullet Proof Roofing Director, Mark Snell. His Isuzu NLR 458-150 Tipper is helping Mark deliver the goods on-site. “The Isuzu’s great to drive, it has a very good turning circle and it thrives with a full load,” says Mark.
