pairs are no problem. We have been building this up over the last 5 months. Should be home tomorrow. The original order was a Isuzu but we had a real bad run on a new Isuzu that was just out of warranty that cost us $11000 in repairs in a month 2 different issues.

Thats real pretty Greg, and takes 2 up! Special!
Sad about the Isuzu issues, but you can luck out with any make. We got a bad Sube, and everyone else loves theirs.
Hopefully you will have a better run from the Fuso.
Cheers, Matt.

a friend just bought a Fuso, with a swing crane behind the cab. He's very happy with it so far, delivering timber packs to building sites. I hate to say this also on here, but his last truck was an Isuzu. Lets just say he changed brands.

We have a older Isuzu frr525 its about 7 years old now with half a mil on it trouble free, 2 hinos 5 years old that I am not keen on but I don't drive them much. With more ks then the frr600 Isuzu no dramas. The frr600 was serviced by Isuzu its whole life. It did 3 gearboxes before it did 18000 km all under warranty then the 4th gearbox at 25000km then they did a upgrade no dramas rom there so 5 gearboxes later fixed :D The radio falls out off the dash the put a new one in every second service under warranty still as they warrant new parts 150000km rom when fitted. They asked what we do with it for this to happen but it runs hiway work very little off hiway. 220000 KM turbo computer problem $6000 turbo replacement, 5000km later injector pump failure $6000 replace injectors $5000 I wrote a nice letter to Isuzu told them how pleased I was the older 1 and this truck was disappointing they blamed the government for the euro 5 laws. I responded to this and there reply was it is a old truck and things need to be replaced. Bad timing on there behalf as I had a order for the new Isuzu hence the fuso. I have cost them a sale on a new truck so far and will continue to do so. I have a sticker going on the back window.
CAUTION THIS ISUZU CONSTANTLY BREAKS DOWN.
The problem is the new truck replaces a mack that has 3 time the ks that the ishitsu has on it.

That's a shame the Isuzu is not too good. Lemon maybe... That gearbox problem is a really bad one.
My friends had a whole list of problems also. The last being a $3000 injector pump i think, repair bill the day before he had to take it as the trade in on the Fuso.

The amount of money it takes to keep a truck on the road is massive. I never had any idea what they cost to run, let along break downs, before talking to my friend about his.

Repairs bills are the killer that's why we keep our leet serviced to the date and reasonably new and unload them before they cost to much in repairs. Hence why I am peed with this truck.
Hence the saying poor people cant afford old machinery.
