Tough, strong and loves the rough stuff


Working in the rough terrain around mining sites brought Isuzu’s 4X4 NPS 300s to the top of Wiring Harnesses Australia’s list when their next service vehicle fleet upgrade was due.

WHA needed something that was a bit tougher and could carry a higher payload than Land Cruisers.

When specialist mining services provider Wiring Harnesses Australia needed to upgrade its fleet, the company chose Isuzu's four-wheel-drive NPS 300s.

"We needed something that was a bit tougher and could carry a higher payload than our existing Land Cruisers," Wiring Harnesses Australia (WHA) owner Aaron Bradshaw says.

"The company was also looking for something that had a four-wheel-drive system and was able to operate in rough terrain, especially around the mine sites."

The NPS 300 4x4s, with their GVM of 6,000 kg (now standard with 6,500 kg GVM), were ideal, according to Bradshaw.

Mt Isa-based WHA supplies wiring harnesses and auto electrical repairs to the local mining industry and the rest of north-west Queensland.

Bradshaw says the company is meeting the high demand that is stemming from the mining industry and the two new Isuzu trucks match the company's promise of quality and reliability.

The trucks are both fitted to mine specifications which include service bodies that have a galvanised and painted tray as well as four large alloy toolboxes. The bodies also feature a light-weight - but strong - roll-over protective structure (ROPS). The companies NPS 300 4x4s are fitted with electric start diesel air compressors for air tools, cleaning equipment, general auto electrical parts and air conditioners.

The trucks also have a 100-litre water tank for cleaning and an electric water pump for washing down air conditioning units and components.

The feedback on the trucks has been positive.

"Our team really enjoys driving the trucks on a daily basis," Bradshaw says.

"The comfort of the contoured adjustable driver's bucket seat has been a big talking point amongst the drivers."

"We are very happy with the vehicles so far and plan to purchase some more Isuzu trucks."
