Based in Newquay, Fourwinds Garage added its first Isuzu truck in 2018, and the reliability of the trucks for recovery duties has led the firm to add a new one each year. The latest addition is an N75.190 crew cab chassis fitted with an aluminum-side bed body. Fourwinds Garage’ Isuzu recovery trucks include a wide range of chassis, including twin-deck bodies, powerlifts, and day cab slide beds, as well as the latest crew cab slide bed.
“Not only are they a good, reliable truck for us as a business, but all the drivers also really enjoy driving them,” says Fourwinds Garage Director Dave Henwood. “With Isuzu, the whole package we get is first-class and matches our requirements.”
Ready For Emergency Response
Fourwinds Garage specialises in recovery and roadside repairs as well as a wide range of car services from MOTs and engine diagnostics to van repairs and servicing. The recovery trucks in the Fourwinds Garage fleet operate seven days a week, and over their planned 10-year working life, each vehicle is expected cover 500,000 miles (805,000 kilometres), so reliability is a must. The fleet of recovery trucks also work closely with the AA, Green Flag, and Britannia Rescue. “Over the past 2 years, none of the Isuzus have ever let us down,” Henwood says.
The Isuzu N75.190 is a 4x2 rigid truck with twin rear wheels. It has a gross vehicle weight of 7,500 kilograms (16,500 pounds) and supports a maximum trailer weight of 3,500 kg (7,700 lbs). Wheelbases and overall lengths range from 3,365 to 4,475 millimetres (132 to 176 inches) and from 6,040 to 7,870 mm (238 to 310 in.), 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 N75.190 is available as a chassis cab for easier bodybuilding and customisation; Isuzu also offers several factory-installed body configurations, including box, curtainside, dropside, and tipper options.
