Holdsworth Foods, a temperature-controlled food distributor based in Tideswell, Derbyshire, recently purchased six Isuzu N75.190 rigid trucks. The company added its first Isuzus in 2015 and now has more than 45 vehicles from the marque. All told, the company’s fleet consists of 140 refrigerated trucks in the 3.5- to 26-tonne range, and with the newest additions, Isuzu now takes up the lion’s share of Holdsworth’s 7.5-t dual-compartment fleet.


Each of the new 7.5-t Isuzu N75s features an Easyshift automatic transmission and a Carrier Pulsar 600MT refrigeration unit paired with dual-compartment bodywork from Solomon. The dual-compartment body allows for storing frozen products in the rear and refrigerated ones in the front. The trucks also feature liveries commemorating Holdsworth’s 50th anniversary. The company expects the trucks to accrue more than 50,000 kilometres per year while working from its Evesham and South Wales depots. The trucks are covered by five-year repair and maintenance plans.


Proven Reliability

“With an excellent payload and proven reliability within our fleet, the Isuzus have become a hugely successful fixture within our transport distribution operation,” says John Hudd, operations manager at Holdsworth Foods. “Not only are they good all-round performing vehicles, but also, most importantly, we have had extraordinarily little down time in the five years since we took our first one.”

More Isuzu N75.190 Details

The N75.190 is a versatile vehicle available as a chassis cab or crew cab chassis in box, curtainside tuckaway, dropside, or tipper truck configurations. Regardless of type, every model is a 7.5-t, 4x2 rigid truck with twin rear wheels and a maximum trailer weight of 3,500 kilograms. They also share the same 4HK1E6C-D Euro 6 turbo diesel engine with a diesel particulate diffuser (DPD) system and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) that produces 140 kilowatts (188 horsepower) and up to 510 newton-metres of torque.


Transmissions are another differentiator between N75.190 trucks. Some come with six-speed manual synchromesh MZZ6F gearboxes, while others feature Isuzu’s six-speed Easyshift transmission, which has a fully automatic mode as well as a sequential shift mode for added flexibility for the driver. Safety features include a lane departure warning system, advanced emergency braking, and a cab that stands up to the ECE-R29 strength standard.
