Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has recently turned over 20 brand new units of the CYZ51 10-wheeler dump truck to First Balfour, Inc., an engineering construction firm belonging to the Lopez Group of Companies, for its hauling and disposal requirements.

The CYZ51 trucks were turned over in a ceremony held at IPC’s manufacturing plant in Laguna. Said model is powered by Isuzu’s 6WF1-TC engine, which is equipped with an intercooled turbocharger and a common rail direct injection (CRDI) fuel system. Rated to make 260 PS, the Euro III emission compliant engine allows the truck to carry 10 cubic-meters of load.

This is not First Balfour, Inc.’s first acquisition of Isuzu models as it has previously purchased various Crosswind XL, and XT AUVs, D-MAX pickups, NHR-PV light-duty trucks and NQR buses since 2003.
