SOUTH AUS­TRALIA’S Ryan Dolan has won Isuzu’s NLR Ser­vi­cepack Mil­wau­kee Tools com­pe­ti­tion.

Isuzu Aus­tralia (IAL) and Mil­wau­kee Tools part­nered up in the first half of this year to run a com­pe­ti­tion com­pris­ing an Isuzu Ready to Work (RTW) NLR 45-150 Short Wheel Base Pre­mium Ser­vi­cepack and $10,000 worth of Mil­wau­kee Tools. Dolan’s to­tal prize pack­age has a re­tail value of over $80,000.

The on­line com­pe­ti­tion, an­nounced on March 1 this year and fin­ish­ing on April 30, was open to any­one over the age of 18.

Dolan’s cus­tom-painted Ser­vi­cepack in Mil­wau­kee red with white lo­gos comes com­plete with seven cen­trally lock­able stor­age com­part­ments, a fully pow­der­coated steel ser­vice body, che­quer­plate floor, 2500kg rated tow­bar and a re­vers­ing cam­era. The prize also in­cludes dealer de­liv­ery charges, on-road costs and one year of reg­is­tra­tion.

With a 4500kg GVM and over 1600kg pay­load ca­pa­bil­ity, the truck is able to be driven on a car li­cence. It also comes with an au­to­mated man­ual trans­mis­sion (AMT).

The Ser­vi­cepack holds a cache of Mil­wau­kee tools stowed in the seven LEDlit tool com­part­ments.

IAL Trucks’ na­tional sales man­ager Les Spalt­man says he was de­lighted to pass on news of the win.

“The over­whelm­ing re­sponse to the Ser­vi­cepack com­pe­ti­tion tells us the model has ev­ery­thing they want by way of fea­tures and ben­e­fits, and is a gen­uine stand­out ex­am­ple of our pre-bod­ied RTW range,” he says.

“Part­ner­ing with the likes of Mil­wau­kee tools ob­vi­ously sweet­ened the deal for those who en­tered. It was clearly a much sought-af­ter prize pack­age, and one we’re ex­tremely proud to have of­fered to our cus­tomers.”

Isuzu says the NLR Ser­vi­cepack’s folded steel body con­struc­tion keeps equip­ment se­cure in even the harsh­est con­di­tions, while the driver also ben­e­fits from safety fea­tures such as sta­bil­ity con­trol ( IESC), hill as­sist, ASR trac­tion con­trol, ABS and four-wheel disc brakes. The 4JJ1 in­ter­cooled turbo- diesel en­gine puts out 110kW, with 375Nm of torque at 2800rpm.

Isuzu’s NLR 45-150 AMT short­wheel­base Ready to Work Ser­vi­cepack was on dis­play at the re­cent Bris­bane Truck Show.
