This 'Billy Cart' Doesnt Need Pushing - Isuzu FRR 500 Factory Tipper


For haulage and excavation specialist Enzo Morabito, his new Isuzu FRR 500 factory tipper is just what the doctor ordered for the timely transport of small to medium material and equipment loads.

Affectionately known as ‘Billy Cart’ a name emblazoned on the truck’s front panel the new addition provides the ‘get up and go’ power that Enzo’s excavation company, Boss Haulage, needs.

Established in 1998, the ACT-based Boss Haulage is a multi-faceted operation built around a team of professional specialists in haulage, earthmoving, road maintenance, equipment hire and materials supply.

According to Enzo, the tipper’s SiTEC Series III 205 engine, rated at 151 kW @ 2,600 RPM and with 637 Nm @ 1,600 RPM, provides that extra ‘oomph’ to transport heavy loads of various materials and equipment up to 6000 kgs.

This is Enzo’s first Isuzu and from all accounts it won’t be the last.

According to Enzo, the truck drives like a car despite its size.

"The easy control provided by the truck’s steering (power assisted recirculating ball) makes the drive quite pleasurable," he said.

"The ride is smooth and comfortable (double acting hydraulic shock absorbers on the front axle)."

The truck is painted in the Boss Haulage company colour an audacious red with orange and white pin striping which makes it an impressive looking vehicle. Complementing the cab is a dark grey tipping body also with pinstripe highlights.

Capping off the visual bonanza are chrome rims, tinted windows and a checker plate toolbox which all help to turn heads around town and advertise the Boss Haulage brand along the way.

While Boss Haulage has six other non-Isuzu trucks in its fleet ranging from medium and heavy duty vehicles, the Isuzu is a welcome addition due to the truck’s nimbleness and easy-handling; it is used in all sorts of conditions, both on and off road, with the majority of the time delivering various materials to construction sites.

Together Enzo’s tipper trucks provide the flexibility needed for doing asphalt works and delivering landscape and quarry products.

In addition to haulage, the company also specialises in earthworks, excavator and equipment hire, road maintenance and asphalt works.
