New 2013 Models on display at Brisbane Truck Show. Isuzu Trucks featured one of the largest exhibits at the 2013 Brisbane Truck Show with a 15 vehicle display that offered the first public viewings of 2013 model year N & F Series ranges along with the recentlylaunched FYJ 2000 twin steer 8x4 model.

Among the enhancements, the upgraded N and F Series ranges feature an all-new Digital Audio Visual Entertainment (DAVE) unit which takes in cabin convenience and entertainment to a new level. Featuring a 6.2 inch touch screen DAVE is operated by just four buttons with the rest of the functions controlled through on-screen menus. The unit features Digital Audio Broadcasting plus (DAB+) which receives radio signals in the highest quality possible and provides access to a much wider choice of stations that

He has previously operated a variety of different make trucks, but wanted to give this new model a go as he was aware of Isuzu’s deserved reputation for outstanding reliability. The truck will operate out of Pronto’s Laverton branch.

To demonstrate the many features of this new entertainment unit, show goers experienced the technology first-hand via an interactive display module which was fitted with four fully functioning cameras, parking sensors, tyre pressure monitors and much more. All NPR, NQR and NPS standard cabs now feature Isuzu’s driver suspension seat for greater comfort, whilst passenger airbags are now standard on most F Series models adding to its all already impressive safety credentials.

Other safety improvements include cornering lamps and the adoption of rear disc brakes to the NLR medium wheelbase and all NNR models for even better braking performance.

Fisher Transport’s long term partnership with Westar and Isuzu pays dividends. Fisher Transport is another small business success story in the transport industry. Steve Fisher, Director of the company, started with one truck in 1991 whilst working for his uncle. Since 1997, starting with the initial purchase of his first Isuzu, he has built the company up to 5 drivers including himself and 6 Isuzus, all purchased from Westar. 4

Fisher Transport Pty Ltd, whose head office is in Altona, specialises in transporting hazardous goods and in particular a variety of packaged solvents such as white spirits, turps and methylated spirits. Those products are usually supplied by their group of customers in 20 litre or 200 litre drums and IBC’s (Intermediate Bulk Containers). Fisher Transport is in fact, the Melbourne Distributor for Australasian Solvents and Chemical Company (ASCC), Exxon Mobil’s National Distributor, which Steve is proud to say are their biggest and most long standing customer with a successful ongoing relationship of 22 years. Transporting dangerous goods does of course require the company to carry a high level of insurance and the drivers to have particular knowledge and skill. This specialisation and the care taken have allowed the company to

grow without any form of advertising as well as develop excellent relationships with their regular customer base.

of the newer models which have encouraged him to put in place a plan to upgrade all the fleet in the not too distance future.

The company delivers daily to customers in four zones across Melbourne metro – south east to Frankston, east to Lilydale, north to Craigieburn and south west to Geelong. Steve’s fleet allows for a spare truck to always be on hand when one of the others are in for service or repair.

“The drivers just love the comfort of the new ones and all the ‘bells and whistles’” says Steve. “Don’t get me wrong, the older ones are great” he added, “ but the newer ones are just more pleasurable to drive, with the sat nav, climate control, reverse camera, floating cab, auto weight, airbags, blue tooth – all your modern features – it just means you go home after a day of driving and feel more refreshed”.

Steve’s primary fleet consists of six Isuzu FVM1400 Longs all fitted with trays and gates and includes a mixture of previous and new models. He was initially prompted to purchase Isuzu due to their solid reputation in the trade for reliability and Steve does not waver from that. Although all the Isuzus have and still do stand the test of reliability, Steve is keen to point out the outstanding features

“They’ve gone from being good and reliable to good, reliable and comfortable!” laughed Steve. Steve’s experience with Westar’s staff over the years has been positive in every way.

Even when there have been changes of staff, the transition has been smooth and new staff members have got to know Steve and understand his requirements. He currently deals with Michael Collins. He likes the fact that Westar staff in sales, spares and service know him and value his custom. When it comes time to re-purchase he can sit down and discuss the deal without feeling the need to “shop around”. Steve’s plans for Fisher Transport are to keep growing the company in Melbourne, sticking to what they know best – dangerous goods and Isuzu!

Commitment to customer service the key to SRM Transport’s ongoing growth. SRM Transport – based in Laverton Victoria – was founded by co-owners Michael Stefurak and Josie Caruso over twenty years ago. Typical of many start ups, they commenced operations with a single truck and have steadily grown to running a fleet of seventy prime movers.


Truck FORCE JULY 2013

General Manager, Steve Muldoon, himself a veteran of the transport industry, attributes the success of the company to a commitment to outstanding customer service and a flexible ‘can do’ attitude of the owners to all aspects of the business and dealing with customers. Today SRM Transport is involved with transporting refrigerated food up and down the eastern seaboard with a primary focus on the Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane run. The company purchased their first Western Star around seven years ago, and whilst it was the initial purchase price that attracted SRM to the Western Star brand, it has been the combination of low operating costs and resale value that has led them to acquire a further fifteen models. ‘The whole-of-life operating costs, combined with the fact that we can accommodate a whole 34 pallet payload with this particular FXB model has been a key factor in us selecting more Western Stars,” said Steve.

Western Star’s 4864 FXB Stratosphere, with its 34 inch Stratosphere sleeper cab has been specifically designed for refrigerated 34 pallet B-Double operation where swing clearances are crucial. The sides and top sleeper fairings have been shaped to allow more swing clearance between the refrigeration unit and the top and side fibreglass cabin fairings. “The Stratosphere cab with its extra space also offers a great environment for our drivers with the ability to stand up and walk through the cab to the sleeper compartment without crouching or bending. Plus, the bed is large and really comfortable which is a real bonus,” Steve went onto say. All the Stars have been purchased from Westar; Steve has known Sales Manager Neil Richardson for many years. “The service I receive from Westar is simply fantastic. Neil is someone who doesn’t just sit back in his office and let

others do the work – he gets fully involved in our business and is completely hands on. He also provides great support to his sales team and consultant James Leo,” Steve said. “This industry is built on relationships and that’s where Neil excels,” Steve added. To date there has been a mixture of engines in the Stars, but Steve says that they are now moving to consolidate to one engine brand and size – in this case the Detroit DD15 is the preferred power plant. Due to continued growth the company is planning on purchasing six new prime movers during this year – Western Stars are likely to be at the top of the list.

Budget takes delivery of first TGM 6x2 Rigid models.

The positive experience that Budget has had with their fleet of MAN Prime Mover’s has seen the three Melbourne Budget franchisees take delivery of six new TGM 23.290 6x2 models.

“Our existing MAN prime movers have proved excellent in terms of reliability, comfort and popularity with our customers. This in turn gave us the confidence to look at acquiring some additional MAN 6x2 models,” said Budget franchisee Paul Wheelton (OAM). “The other benefit we have seen recently from our MAN Prime Movers is their excellent resale value,” Paul said. Paul owns seven Budget franchises in Melbourne’s Northern and Eastern suburbs, along with four franchises on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Paul has had a long association with Budget in Australia, having previously held the position of Chief Accountant of Corporate Budget. Paul will take delivery of two of the new MAN’s, whilst the other four will be split between the two other Melbourne Budget franchisees, Rob Payne and Phil Maloney.


Truck FORCE JULY 2013

Paul’s trucks have side curtains that promote two charities that Paul has involvement with; ‘The Pied Pipers’ who raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday appeal and the police ‘Blue Ribbon Foundation’. “Both these charities have limited funds for brand building - these truck curtains, which act as mobile billboards, will really help raise the awareness and profile of these two most worthwhile organisations,” Paul added. Paul plans to make the trucks available to both charities to provide support for their key fund raising periods during the year. “An important feature of these new MAN’s is the fact that they come standard with MAN’s 12 speed TipMatic transmission. An automatic transmission simplifies the transition from what may be an unfamiliar truck, and provides customers with a more

relaxed, easier driving experience whilst ensuring less wear and tear on the trucks,” Paul went onto say. “The other key attraction of the TGM models like all MAN’s is the 60,000km service intervals. This naturally minimises servicing costs and crucially allows us to offer our renters longer rental periods before the truck needs to be returned for servicing,” Paul said. For over 27 years, Paul has enjoyed a productive and mutually rewarding relationship with Patterson Cheney Trucks. From Paul’s perspective, the key to the longevity of the relationship is the way he gets treated. “They go out of their way to look after you. If there’s ever a problem, all I have to do is pick up the phone and it’s fixed,” Paul said. “To be quite frank, whilst the MAN product is excellent it is the relationship that I have

with Dealer Principal Terry Jewson and his team at Paterson Cheney/Westar Trucks that keeps me returning time and time again to buy trucks from them,” Paul added. Whilst Paul keeps a close eye the performance of each of his branches, a large proportion of his time is taken up with a number of charitable causes. In addition to his work and support for Pied Pipers and the Blue Ribbon Foundation, Paul is also Chairman of Life Education which is responsible for drug and health education amongst primary school children. Each year the organisation takes their vital message to around 750,000 children and Paul is appreciative of the support he receives from the Patterson Cheney Group.

organisations in Australia and overseas. One of these is the ‘Bali Children’s’ Foundation’ which he set up 10 years ago after the Bali bombing. The charity’s vision is to provide an educational pathway for disadvantaged Balinese Children. It also supports various projects in associated orphanages and the broader community of Bali that include educational offerings with an emphasis on remote locations.

Shannon Noll enjoys his versatile Isuzu D-Max. Well known and much loved Australian performer Shannon Noll has recently taken delivery of a new model Isuzu D-Max 4x4 LS Crew Cab as a replacement for an older model Isuzu Ute.

Shannon, who is now an honorary Victorian living with his family 50kms out of Melbourne, is the brand ambassador for Patterson Cheney Isuzu Ute. He has found plenty of uses for his new Ute, which he says is a major step up from the previous model in terms of creature comforts.

The D-Max really fits the bill for Shannon’s family. As well as being useful around the family’s small acreage where they keep a few horses, sheep and cows, the Ute can be used with a box trailer to pick up wood, feed and other bits and pieces needed to keep things running smoothly.

Shannon keeps pretty busy and following delivery of the new D-Max late last year, undertook a tour of country Victoria with his band.

“It tows really well with a box trailer – in fact so well you wouldn’t even know the trailer’s there.” Shannon commented. “Also, my kids are mad keen footy players, so we can get the whole family in the Ute and off we go.”

The space of the D-Max’s Crew Cab allows Shannon to get to and from gigs, sometimes with equipment loaded in the back and sometimes accompanied by a band member or two. The freedom to be able to drive himself is something Shannon really enjoys. The canopy on the back of the Ute means the equipment gets to and from the gigs safe, sound and dry. The comfort of the new D-Max is particularly important to Shannon, who suffered a setback last year when competing on the hugely popular Dancing with the Stars. Shannon was forced to leave the show way too early and undertake emergency surgery to his spine which then required many weeks of rehabilitation. Shannon, with his sense of humour still firmly in place, says he can drive in the D-Max for several hours and still get out and walk upright! “The comfort of the seats is on another level” said Shannon. He is also very impressed with the fuel economy of D-Max’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel. “I fill it up and it just keeps going and going. I can get 1,300 – 1,400 kilometres out of a tank which is great for all that country driving,” he added.


Truck FORCE JULY 2013

Shannon speaks highly of his purchase experience with Sales Manager, Paul Leggerini and the entire team at Patterson Cheney Isuzu Ute. “Those guys really looked after me,” enthused Shannon. “In fact the whole team bent over backwards for me all the way and I am so pleased with the vehicle. I loved the old one, but this one is a real step up. I can’t speak highly enough about the efforts they went to for me,” he added. Shannon does a lot of work behind the scenes for a number of charities which he loves to do but is very humble about. One specific charity he does like to draw awareness to is ‘beyondblue’, which was his chosen charity whilst on DWTS. ‘beyondblue’ do a lot of important work with farmers battling depression in this time of change, which is something that is close to Shannon’s heart. Shannon is currently working on a new album which will hopefully be out later in the year. There will be a lot of fans waiting for that and to see Shannon rolling up to some gigs in his super comfortable D-Max!

Truck FORCE JULY 2013


THE PATTERSON CHENEY GROUP Our truck customers are familiar with the Isuzu, Western Star and MAN brands. But what many people don’t realise is just how many other leading automotive brands fall under the Patterson Cheney umbrella. In addition to the aforementioned truck brands, today you can look to Patterson Cheney for Honda, Holden, Toyota cars and recreational vehicles, Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars and Vans, Isuzu D-MAX, as well as Honda lawn, garden and power equipment products. And there are a couple of very good reasons why it’s worth talking to us if you’re in the market for any of the above brands. Firstly, because our buying power is so big, we can pass the savings on to you as well as offering you a great range of competitive finance packages. Secondly, you’ll experience the same great service that you’ve come to expect from any of our ‘other’ Dealerships – we didn’t get this big without looking after our customers, no matter if they’re buying new, used, parts, service or finance. All our staff have an absolute commitment to customer satisfaction – they know what they’re talking about, so you can rely on their advice. So if you’re in the market for one of the brands above, your first stop should be to talk to your existing truck sales consultant who will point you in the right direction.
