We’re already a third of the way through the year as we turn our attention to our March Truck of the Year entrants. We add the wonderful trucks below to the bevy of quality trucks that have entered so far in 2018.

This month’s winner, picking up $300 worth of Isuzu merchandise, is J.B.M. Logistics. 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!

J.B.M. Logistics
FYJ 300-350 8×4 Agitator

A sub-contractor, working for Boral, Jess Milano of Swan Hill moves some serious weight in his agitator day-in, day-out so his Isuzu FYJ 300-350 8×4 agitator sure comes in handy. And when the concrete pour is done, and he returns to base, with the eye-catching, schmick yellow cab, he looks like an absolute pro.

United Driver Training
FXZ 240-350

As a man who teaches the next wave of Australian truck drivers the craft, Adam Van Vegchel of United Driver Training knows what’s important when it comes to trucks. Says Adam “Price, reliability, comfort, power. I have driven just about every brand truck and nothing compares to Isuzu, that is why I now own 2 Isuzu trucks (1 crash box & 1 synchro)”

N & S Abrasive Blasting
FXY 240-350

Nathan Buckley of N & S Abrasive Blasting runs a sandblasting and painting service as well as providing a general labour and haulage service. Nathan and his wife own an Isuzu FXY 240-350 6×4. “It’s a Tilt tray and this is the second Isuzu tilt tray me and my wife have owned,” says Nathan.

Stormsafe roofing and guttering
NPR 400 Crew

Operating out of Berkeley in New South Wales, Shane Thelan’s Stormsafe Roofing and Guttering work some big jobs, requiring a truck with serious oomph. Enter Shane’s NPR 400 crew. “She’s an extra-long extended Isuzu 400 dual cab. Whether it’s getting the boys to work or down the coast camping she always gets the job done!” says Shane.

Kuranda Tree Service
FRR 500 Tipper 

From Mackay to Cape York, Kuranda Tree Service are arborists who take care of any knotty problem you might have in the tree department. And owner William Turner always brings his Isuzu FRR 500 Tipper to the task. “It’s nice and quiet, good on fuel, nice to drive, has heaps of room, and cruise control. I just love it, wouldn’t pick any other type of truck other than an Isuzu,” says William.

Adelaide City Concreting
NQR 87-190

Concreting is a family affair for Rugola brothers, Paul and Vince, who run Adelaide City Concreting. Taking them across the City of Churches is their trusty stead, the NQR 87-190. Says Paul of their trusty workhorse “it hauls a lot of forming timber and equipment for concreting but handles it all easily.”
