Food Supplier Chooses Isuzu N75.190(E) Rigids For Growing Fleet

Waterdene Foodservice Ltd, a Leighton Buzzard-based supplier of chilled and frozen food, fresh food, and more, recently added four new Isuzu N75.190(E) trucks to 25-vehicle fleet, which now includes 24 total Isuzu 7.5-tonne trucks. The company also plans to add two more later in 2020. Each of the trucks makes roughly 20 deliveries per day and most often works inside a 60-mile (97-kilometre) radius of Waterdene’s headquarters.

The firm’s newest N75s have dual-compartment refrigerated bodies from Solomon coupled with Carrier Supra 550MT refrigeration systems and a divider between the chilled and frozen sections, as well as three rear doors and one side door. Waterdene expects them to cover around 40,000 mi (64,374 km) each year.

The N75.190(E) has a six-speed Easyshift transmission, denoted by the “E” in the name, and is powered by a 188-horsepower 4HK1E6C-D Euro 6 engine. (Photo courtesy of Isuzu.)

“Excellent Payload”

“The Isuzu 7.5-tonne specification with the Easyshift transmission is proven to be ideal for our distribution routes, which involve a mixture of town work and travelling through narrow country lanes,” says Waterdene MD Richard Stimpson. “The compact overall footprint of the Isuzu with a Solomon body means that we can manage and contain potentially expensive vehicle damage, whilst the lightweight vehicle combination gives us excellent payload.”


The Isuzu N75.190(E) is a 4x2 rigid truck with twin rear wheels. It has a gross vehicle weight of 7,500 kilograms and supports a maximum trailer weight of 3,500 kg. Wheelbases and overall lengths range from 3,365 to 4,475 millimetres and from 6,040 to 7,870 mm, respectively.

The truck comes with an Isuzu 4HK1E6C-D Euro 6 engine as standard; it produces 140 kilowatts (188 horsepower) and 510 newton-metres of torque. The “E” in the name indicates the presence of Isuzu’s six-speed Easyshift transmission, which has both fully automated and sequential shift modes. Other variants have six-speed manual gearboxes.

The N75.190 is available with a day or crew chassis cab, but Isuzu also offers factory-configured models, including box trucks, curtainside trucks, dropside trucks, and tippers like the one pictured here. (Photo courtesy of Isuzu.)

The N75.190(E) is available as a chassis cab for easier bodybuilding and customisation; Isuzu also offers several factory-installed configurations, including box trucks, curtainside trucks, dropside trucks, and tippers. They come with several standard safety features, including central locking with remote keyless entry, lane departure warning, advanced emergency braking, and an ECE-R29-compliant cab.
