Now in its 33rd year, AgFest draws an average of 60,000 people from all corners of Australia who are involved in, or passionate about, agriculture.

With around 700 exhibits at the event, brands and businesses from every agricultural application imaginable come to showcase the latest technology and developments in machinery and equipment throughout the three-day festival.

Rod Best, Engine Sales Manager at Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL), says demonstrating Isuzu’s off highway engines to the agricultural sector is a huge priority for the business.

“We exhibited at AgFest last year and were overwhelmed with the positive response we received,” he said.

“People were extremely welcoming, and I think it was clear that Isuzu engines – which we continue to enhance and refine through rigorous testing and development – bring a competitive, highly efficient product to the industry.”

Isuzu increased its product offering with a bigger and more impressive line-up of products on display.

“We’ll be bringing a custom-built marquee and stand featuring a cross-section of the range so we’ll be hard to miss at the event,” Mr Best said.

“As well as upsizing our exhibition real estate, we’ve increased the number of products on display, covering just about every vocational application.”

A mixture of two-cylinder, three-cylinder, four-cylinder and six-cylinder models will be on-site for attendees to inspect, and experienced off-highway engine experts will be available to field all application queries.

“When it comes to farming, or any business, it’s imperative to make sure they have the right product for the right application.

“We’re aiming to empower our customers by supplying the engine solution that is most suited to their specific needs,” Mr Best said.
