NEED a scissor lift, boom lift or telehandler for your next project? Force Access is a national rental business that transports equipment to and from construction sites around the nation on the back of its 30-plus fleet of light and medium-duty trucks, which includes five lowloaders.
The organisation is a specialised equipment provider, with three divisions and over 4,000 pieces of equipment. The company is renewing its truck fleet and just purchased 13 new Isuzus based on prior experience with the brand.
These include four medium-duty FVD 1000s and two FRR 500s, adding to another seven Isuzus which arrived in August. The new acquisitions have been fitted with remote-controlled tilt slides by Sydney-based body builder Suburban Towing & Equipment.
The new FVD 1000s feature Allison automatic transmissions, while the FRR 500s are equipped with automated manual transmissions (AMTs). Isuzu’s automatic and automated variants are designed to help reduce overall running costs across the life of the vehicles, eliminating clutch-related gearbox issues.
The 10,400kg-GVM Isuzu FRR 500 produces 151 kW of power at 2600 RPM, and 637 Nm of torque at 1600 RPM; the larger FVD 1000 has a GVM of 16,500kg and produces 221 kW of power at 2400 RPM, and 981 Nm of torque at 1450 RPM. Both models feature the ISRI 6860 air suspended driver’s seat, hill start aid (HSA), and an ECE-R29 compliant cab.
Force Access’s range of special equipment includes scissor lifts, boom lifts, man lifts, telehandlers, and more.
