With their formidable engines and high torque capabilities, ISUZU ensures that farmers can transport their goods with ease, even across rugged terrains.

Trucking power

The NPS 300 Crew Cab 4×4 with a Rooftop tent is truly remarkable! This unique custom-built grey Crew Cab, adorned with dark badging, boasts a 3,000mm x 2,200mm flat deck, enhancing its versatility. Equipped with side toolboxes, side access ladders, a chrome nudge bar, and spotlights, it’s designed for both style and functionality. The addition of a rooftop tent makes it perfect for adventurous excursions. Plus, its adjustable tow hitch ensures flexibility for towing various items as needed.

The NQR 500 equipped with a hooklift system offers remarkable versatility. Its adaptable design allows for seamless transitions between a dropside unit and a dedicated firefighting module. Essentially, this setup eliminates the need for separate dropside and firefighting trucks, streamlining operations and maximising efficiency.

The FXR 17-360, outfitted with a cattle body, meets the versatile needs of farmers seeking a truck capable of functioning independently or as part of a truck drawbar combination. Powered by a fuel-efficient 265 kW (360 hp) engine, this 4×2 freighter provides ample performance while conserving fuel. Its multi-purpose cattle body is primarily utilised for transporting livestock, offering farmers a practical solution for their transportation needs.

Versatility, style and comfort

Among ISUZU’s impressive lineup is the D-MAX, a versatile bakkie that embodies the spirit of hard work and resilience. Whether it’s navigating through narrow farm roads or transporting equipment and supplies, the D-MAX excels in meeting the diverse needs of agricultural operations. With its rugged design and exceptional towing capacity, the D-MAX – including the Arctic AT35 and all-new X-RIDER models – proves to be an indispensable asset for farmers looking for dependable, yet stylish, vehicles.

For the farmer’s wife seeking comfort and capability in one package, the ISUZU mu-X offers the perfect solution. Combining the ruggedness of a traditional bakkie with the comfort of a luxury SUV, the mu-X redefines versatility on the farm. With its spacious interior, advanced safety features, and impressive off-road capabilities, the mu-X ensures that farmers can tackle any task with confidence and ease.
