Isuzu N75.150’s Maximum Protection & Flexible Chassis Essential For National Museums Liverpool

From oil painting to botany specimens, National Museums Liverpool regularly transports fragile and environmentally sensitive objects among all eight museums under its jurisdiction. It was important, then, for the organisation’s newest distribution vehicle (a 7.5-tonne Isuzu N75.150 rigid with Bespoke Bodies bodywork) to provide a constant internal body temperature of between 18 and 20 degrees Celsius, adjusting automatically depending on the outside conditions.


Load Protection

“Everything about this conservation truck has been designed specifically to ensure that the load being carried has the maximum protection at every stage of the journey,” says David Crombie, senior painting conservator at National Museums Liverpool. “For this reason alone, this Isuzu is specified to an extremely high level, covering everything from an optimum heating system and a chassis with minimal vibration, through to its ability to load and unload using a range of different access methods at each of our venues. Most importantly, it also fully meets the criteria of our GIS indemnity insurance for goods in transit.”


The temperature-controlled body features a system of rails and tie bars for securely holding crates or wrapped objects in position, as well as a mix of padded rails and load lock and wooden rails in both the floor and ceiling to safely secure fragile items. Externally, the N75.150 rigid is equipped with an Anteo 1000-kilogram, 2 metre cantilever tail lift that has the extra reach to accommodate larger crates and load boxes.


Specifications

The Isuzu N75.150 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 N75.150 is available as a chassis cab for easier bodybuilding and customisation; Isuzu also offers several factory-installed configurations, including dropside trucks and tippers.


The truck comes with an Isuzu 4JJ1-E6-D engine as standard; it produces 110 kilowatts (150 horsepower) and 375 newton-metres of torque between 1,600 and 2,800 rpm. The manual six-speed gearbox is standard, but customers can also select the Isuzu six-speed Easyshift transmission—the exact choice of National Museums Liverpool.
