T680 ATD Truck of The Year
Kenworth Celebrates 90 Years of Achievement
This year, Kenworth is celebrating 90 years of industry
leadership through quality, innovation and technology.
Today, this leadership is exemplified by the Kenworth
T680 with PACCAR MX-13 engine receiving the 2013
Heavy Duty Commercial Truck of the Year award from the
American Truck Dealers (p.7). The Kenworth T680 establishes a new standard of excellence with its superior fuel
efficiency, aerodynamic styling and premium interior.
The T680, which has a 2.1-meter-wide cab, has earned
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay®
Designation and is the most aerodynamic truck in
Kenworth’s 90-year history.
The PACCAR MX-13 engine provides a lightweight,
fuel-efficient power plant designed to meet the demands
of heavy duty vocational applications.
The new T880 vocational truck is the latest evolution of
Kenworth’s quality truck line. The T880 offers the reliability and durability you expect from Kenworth. The
T880, which will be available for production later this
summer, provides modern styling, increased visibility, a
rugged stamped aluminum cab, excellent maneuverability, and the PACCAR MX-13 engine. The T880 with the
PACCAR MX-13 engine provides a wide range of horsepower ratings up to our newest rating of 500 hp with
1,850 lb-ft of torque.
For 90 years — and with more than 900,000 trucks
produced — Kenworth has played an essential role in the
development of trucks that are more reliable, fuel efficient, productive and economical to operate.
The goal has always been to build the right Kenworth
truck for each customer’s application to get the job
done…and build that truck to last. That holds true
today with featured customers Retif Oil & Fuel
Co. (p.10), Zimmerman Truck Lines (p.11), and
Valley Farm Transport (p.13).
Kenworth takes great pride in its
long history of achievement and
excellence. Our core values of
quality, innovation and technology will remain steadfast as we
continue to build The World’s
Best® trucks for our customers.

New Kenworth T880
Kenworth Launches New T880 Vocational Truck
Kenworth Truck Company launched
the new Kenworth T880™ at the
2013 Mid-America Trucking Show
in Louisville, Ky.
“Skillfully designed and robustly
engineered, the new Kenworth
T880 builds upon Kenworth’s
distinguished 90-year heritage of
quality, innovation and technology
to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks,”
says Gary Moore, Kenworth general
manager and PACCAR vice president.
“As we celebrate Kenworth’s 90th
anniversary, the T880 represents
our heritage very well as the latest evolution of our quality product line, while also reinforcing
Kenworth’s leadership in vocational
truck performance. Vocational customers and drivers really demand a
tough and durable truck in today’s
challenging work environments,
and we are confident the
Kenworth T880 will surpass
customer expectations,”
says Kevin Baney, Kenworth
chief engineer.
“For example, the T880
features a panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, quiet cab with its triplesealed and robust doors,
5-piece hood for easier and
faster repairs, air-assisted
hydraulic clutch, complex
reflector headlamps, excellent maneuverability, and
new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles that vocational customers will especially appreciate,” says Baney. “On
top of all that, we designed the T880 with distinctively
sculpted lines that form an evolutionary, but uniquely
Kenworth look.”
The new T880 is for vocational applications, including
dump, mixer, refuse and heavy haul. Its addition will
complement Kenworth’s current vocational line-up that
includes the T800, T440, W900S and C500. The T880
4 World’s Best
will be available for production later this summer.
The Kenworth T880 is
standard with the 12.9liter PACCAR MX-13
engine. With its high-end
ratings of 500 hp and
1,850 lb-ft of torque, the
PACCAR MX-13 engine
provides a lightweight,
fuel-efficient engine option
for vocational applications, including dumps and
heavy haul applications
over 100,000 lbs. The T880 also is available with the
Cummins ISX15 engine with up to 600 hp and 2,050
lb-ft of torque.
The T880 uses Kenworth’s 2.1-meter wide, stamped aluminum cab, which is robotically assembled. The cab has
a comfortable 23 inches of room between the seats. The
T880 offers the premium Diamond VIT and Vantage trim
levels and two interior color options of Sandstone Tan and
Slate Gray.
Kenworth T880 Features
Stamped Aluminum Cab: The lightweight cab is new for
vocational applications. First introduced with the T680
in 2012, the cab’s extensive durability testing regimen
focused on achieving the highest, demanding requirements for vocational trucks. Robotically assembled, the
stamped aluminum panels are connected by Henrob™
self-penetrating fasteners to produce an extremely
durable cab with enhanced resistance to noise, vibration
and corrosion. The cab also utilizes Kenworth’s signature cowl-mounted mirrors for better visibility, increased
durability and reduced adjustment.
Panoramic Windshield: The T880 is standard with a
panoramic one-piece, bonded-in windshield with superior visibility. The T880 windshield has excellent thickness
to minimize the effect of rock incidents,
offers efficient replacement time, and
is much larger in size compared to the
T800 windshield.
Robust Door: The lightweight,
stamped aluminum door is extremely
durable and robust enough to support up to 400 lbs. The door provides
smooth airflow around the cab and
minimizes noise-inducing turbulence.
A pressure relief valve equalizes interior and exterior air
pressure to make the door easy to open and close. The
door is triple sealed against the elements and road noise.
Hood and Bumper: The new vocational hood is made
of Metton®, which is a lightweight, durable composite
material with excellent impact resistance and finished
surface. The hood, which offers easier and faster repair,
is offered in two configurations, both with bolt-on fenders. The T880 is available in a 116.5-inch BBC. It also
is available in a 122.5-inch BBC standard length. Both
include a 5-piece Metton hood. The stylish, signature
Kenworth grille is made from corrosion-resistant aluminum wire mesh for superior protection of cooling system
components. The grille’s surround is made of polished
stainless steel. With the advanced hood assist system,
lifting the hood requires just 35 lbs. of opening force. To
aid in easy serviceability and replacements, the T880 is
available with all the current T800 metal bumpers.
Lighting: The T880 is standard with dual lamp complex
reflector headlamps
which offer best in
industry performance at
a lower cost and more
durable package. All
standard exterior lights
utilize LED technology
that provides a 20,000-
hour life, which
equates to about 15
years of truck life. LED
lights are also used
extensively in the cab
and sleeper.
T880 Vocational
Options: The T880 is
available with five new, factory-installed and lightweight
Watson & Chalin lift axles, including a 10K offering for
the first time and a 20K version with a 200-lb weight
savings. Also offered are new steering gears for improved
steering feedback and increased wheelcut for greater
maneuverability.
Driver Performance Center: The
Driver Performance Center uses a
full-color, high-resolution, 5-inch
Thin Film Transistor display screen,
which includes current truck information, diagnostic data, and pop-up
alerts. The Center also displays situational-specific recommendations to
the driver which help improve vehicle
performance.
HVAC System: With industry-leading standard Automatic
Temperature Control, simply set the desired temperature
and the system maintains it. A one-touch feature provides
maximum defrost. These features keep drivers comfortable while maintaining their focus on driving.
Seats: The Kenworth proprietary seats offer an advanced
air suspension system that automatically adjusts to various driver weights. A full range of seat comfort is available to meet driver-specific preferences. For the T880,
Kenworth offers the DuraSupreme® heavy duty seat fabric
in charcoal, gray and tan.
Kenworth Dash: The dash cluster has an easy-to-read layout with nine standard gauges and 12 additional gauges
available. The switches utilize the toggling feature that
drivers prefer, while maintaining rocker switch functionality. The T880 uses new electric-over-air dash switches
introduced on the T680, and offers additional options to
aid with vocational and body builder requirements. The
Kenworth dash includes
Kenworth NavPlus®
– with hands-free cell
phone capability via
Bluetooth connections
and voice commands.
NavPlus is standard with
premium interior trim.

Milestones
Kenworth Celebrates 90th Anniversary in 2013
Commemorating a Heritage of Quality, Innovation and Technology
Kenworth is celebrating its milestone 90th anniversary during 2013. With an excellent heritage of quality, innovation
and technology, Kenworth has provided thousands of customers with The World’s Best® trucks over the decades.
It all began in 1923 when Harry W. Kent and Edgar K.
Worthington incorporated the Gersix Motor Company as
“Kenworth”. The company name was formed from a combination of letters from the founders’ last names.
That first year, the small Seattle truck manufacturer produced 78 six-cylinder, gasoline-powered trucks. Since then,
Kenworth has produced more than 900,000 trucks.
Early Kenworth Logging Truck
Durable working trucks
Kenworth’s success and staying power in a competitive
business can be traced back
to a philosophy established
First Kenworth Diesel Truck in 1933
early in the firm’s history. The
goal was to build the right
Kenworth truck for each
customer’s application to get the job
done… and build
Kenworth Sleeper Cab from 1936
that truck to last.
That philosophy, which continues to be true to this day,
resulted in Kenworth establishing a solid reputation for
its quality, innovative and durable trucks that are driven by
state-of-the-art technology.
Kenworth was the first truck manufacturer to
install diesel engines as standard equipment in
1933, and also sold its first sleeper cab the same year. The
Kenworth T600A transformed the industry as the first truly
aerodynamic Class 8 truck in 1985. A year later, the
Kenworth T800 was introduced and is widely recognized
for serving productively in applications such as dump
truck, mixer, logger, and extreme heavy haul. The milestone
250,000th T800 was produced and celebrated last year.

Aerodynamic fuel efficiency
At the 2012 Mid-America Trucking Show, Kenworth significantly pushed aerodynamics ahead again with the introduction of the all-new Kenworth T680, the company’s
most aerodynamic truck in its history.
“Over the past 90 years, Kenworth has played an
essential role in the development of trucks that
are more fuel efficient, productive and economical to
operate. It’s the foundation that began with Kent and
Worthington delivering trucks that provide exceptional
performance,” says Gary Moore, Kenworth’s general
manager and PACCAR vice president.
“As we go forward, Kenworth’s core values of
quality, innovation and technology will remain steadfast
as we provide customers with The World’s Best trucks,”
says Moore.
In 2013, Kenworth will host many customer events to
commemorate the company’s 90th anniversary milestone
and showcase its exciting
new trucks. Stay tuned for
more announcements.

Retif Oil & Fuel
Ready To Roll
New Kenworth T880 with PACCAR MX-13 engine is put to the
test by Gulf Coast petroleum distributor
Retif Oil & Fuel is a petroleum products distributor
serving New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region since
1964. With a fleet of more than 70 trucks, about half
Kenworths, the company delivers bulk petroleum and
retail packaged products, and provides on- and off-site
refueling services to commercial and industrial customers.
“In our fleet, Kenworths are outperforming all other
trucks,” says Operations and Fleet Manager Chad Harris.
“We’re moving toward an all-Kenworth fleet.”
The fuel distributor depends on Kenworth T800 and
W900 tractors to haul full-load, 80,000 lb. tankers
everyday, running routes up to 350 miles radius.
Kenworth T800 “box trucks” distribute packaged
petroleum products around the Gulf Coast region,
while single axle Kenworth T370s with tankers handle
localized deliveries.
President and Owner Kenny Retif, left, and Operations and Fleet Manager Chad Harris
“The T370s are powered with PACCAR PX-8 engines,”
says Harris. “They do a nice job for us.”
“Kenworth equipped the T880 for us with an Eaton
UltraShift® PLUS transmission and lightweight components — aluminum fuel tanks, rims, bumper — anything
that will save a few pounds. If I can cut 1,000 lbs. off the
weight of the truck, that’s 1,000 lbs. more fuel I can
haul.”
New Kenworth T880 with PACCAR MX-13 engine
Wider cab, better visibility
Past experience with PACCAR engines made it an easy
decision for the company last year to join the Kenworth
test program running a new Kenworth T880 Day Cab
with the new PACCAR MX-13 engine.
“The new T880 with
PACCAR MX-13 engine has
performed quite well.”
— Chad Harris
“The new T880 with PACCAR MX-13 engine has performed
quite well,” says Harris, who worked with Kenworth of
South Louisiana to spec horsepower and torque at 485
hp and 1,650 lb-ft, respectively. The PACCAR MX-13
significantly enhances fuel efficiency and performance
utilizing the latest common rail, fuel-delivery system,
which uses controls to regulate the fuel in a central
manifold, compressing only the amount of fuel mixture
needed to ensure the lowest possible fuel consumption,
emission and noise levels.
10 World’s Best
Inside, the T880’s wider aluminum cab delivers additional
weight savings while providing more roomy comfort for
drivers. “Whatever creature comforts our drivers want
inside their trucks, we’ll get it for them,” says Harris, who
appreciates the Driver Performance Center, sleek new
dash, comfortable seats and advanced interior lighting
that come standard in the T880 Day Cab. “Every driver
here who runs a Kenworth loves it.”
Outside, the sleek new design and lower hood provide
better driver visibility and fuel efficiency. The new fivepiece hood reduces repair costs, while the stainless steel
grille helps protect critical cooling components, improve
performance and lower maintenance costs. Overall,
the new T880 offers enhanced aerodynamic efficiency
over the T800.
“It’s critical that we maintain reliable trucks that are
always ready to go,” says Harris, who relies on Kenworth
PremierCare® Connect to help manage and control the
fleet’s operating costs. “We don’t have an excess amount
of equipment, so I need every truck. Our PremierCare
software lets us capture our costs, so we know what we
really need to spend our money on. From my point of view,
I can save $100,000 in annual fuel costs by trading some
of our other trucks for aerodynamic Kenworth trucks.”
Zimmerman Truck Lines
Long Distance Reliability
Pennsylvania fleet likes fuel-efficient T680 with PACCAR MX-13
engine for driver comfort and lower cost of ownership
We’re fortunate that we don’t have much turnover. Our
trucks play an important part in driver retention.”
When it came time to put long-term reliability to the test for
the Kenworth T680 with the new PACCAR MX-13 engine,
Kenworth turned to Zimmerman Truck Lines. Driver teams
here can easily log 250,000 miles on a truck each year.
“Don’t believe us?” asks the Zimmerman website. “Talk to
any driver from ZTL and they will tell you it is true!”
In addition to the new T680 with PACCAR MX-13 engine
and Eaton UltraShift® PLUS transmission, Zimmerman took
delivery of five new T660s in 2012. Going forward, he
expects to purchase more T680s, which take Kenworth’s
long tradition of superior aerodynamics and fuel economy
to a new level of achievement.
“Kenworth has always
proven to cost less per mile
over the life of the truck.”
Lower cost of ownership
— Mark Zimmerman
From coast to coast, across mountains and deserts, week
after week, through all kinds of weather, “the T680 with
PACCAR MX-13 engine has been reliable and is performing
very well,” says Chief Operating Officer Mark Zimmerman.
“The power’s there, the torque’s there, the speed’s there.
And it’s nice and quiet. Drivers are quite pleased with it.”
Dependability and driver comfort
Between its two trucking divisions — vans and flatbeds —
Zimmerman Truck Lines could easily grind through trucks
quickly. With 175 trucks, mostly Kenworths, Zimmerman
feels he’s found the right truck for life-cycle durability and
cost of ownership, especially for demanding coast-to-coast
routes.
“Along with driver satisfaction, the actual cost-per-mile is
what drives our purchasing decision,” says Zimmerman.
“Sale price, fuel mileage and resale value all play a factor,
but the one thing we’ve always looked at and use as a gauge
when purchasing trucks is what it costs us, per mile, for the
life of the truck. Maintenance costs of Kenworth trucks are
lower than other brands we’ve had, and the quality workmanship is much higher. Kenworth has always proven to
cost less per mile over the life of the truck.”
As for service after sale, says Zimmerman: “The service we
get from Kenworth of Pennsylvania is exemplary. They are
definitely a first class operation. It’s true that you get what
you pay for. Kenworth has always treated us very well.”
“The T600 series has been a workhorse in our fleet since
the 1980s,” says Zimmerman, who admits running other
trucks over the years. “The T680 is the newest
evolution of that. It’s roomier and
more fuel efficient, consistently running between 6.6 and 7.0 mpg. The
steering, visibility, and everything that
goes with it, is a plus. Drivers appreciate the comfort and ride.”
Teams especially like the extra-roomy,
76-inch integrated sleeper with 60
cubic feet of storage and full-height
wardrobe cabinet. “Our drivers are
our number one resource,” says
Zimmerman. “Team drivers spend a
majority of their time in their trucks.
The most important thing we can provide them is a quality Kenworth truck.

Valley Farm Transport
Regional Advantage
California agricultural hauler prefers aerodynamic,
fuel-efficient T440s to help boost its bottom line while
improving driver productivity and comfort
Inside a conference room at Valley Farm Transport is a
retired 1928 Kenworth truck. It stands as a testament to
an appreciation of Kenworths throughout Kenworth’s
90-year history, which comes from a company with its
own 50-year history of providing reliable service hauling
agricultural products throughout Northern California.
“I always liked Kenworth trucks,” said the late company
founder, Bob Nickum, who was quoted in a 2005
World’s Best article. “I liked the looks, the durability,
resale and weight.”
“With Kenworth, our
operating costs are lower,
product reliability is higher
and we get excellent
— David Nickum
resale value.”
Bob’s son, David Nickum, is president and CEO of Valley
Farm now. Like his father, David works with Tom Bertolino,
dealer principle at NorCal Kenworth-Sacramento, to spec
the most reliable, cost-effective trucks available for regional
bulk transport
Lightweight and durable
“A few years back, we sat down with Tom and Kenworth
engineers and asked, ‘Is there a way to make a lighter T800,
or a beefier T300?’ recalls David Nickum. “We didn’t need a
lot of horsepower, a big transmission or sleeper. We wanted
something that could be operated in city or country
environments, and most importantly, is lightweight and
durable. The goal was that it would be a regional truck —
about 85 percent of hauls are within 100 miles.”
“Running a fleet of durable, lighter weight trucks is
a big deal for us,” says Nickum. “Hauling bulk products
like tomatoes, rice and almonds — that’s money that
goes right to our bottom line.”
According to Kristian Damkier at the Sacramento
Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, “Valley
Farm Transport, through its fleet modernization program,
has reduced NOx emissions by 45 tons per year, the equivalent of removing 12,000 cars from the Sacramento region.”
“In California, due to CARB regulations, this is a time of
intensive capital spending among fleet operators,” says
Nickum. “Kenworth turned that into a positive for us. We’re
able to buy new T440s that are not only lighter weight but
offer significant capital advantages.”
Reliable trucks, low-cost operation
Reliable equipment is key to Valley Farms’ success, particularly during harvest season, which runs 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. “We can’t afford to have trucks break
down,” says Nickum. Out on the road, Kenworth trucks
present a quality image that has helped shape the company’s reputation for reliable service.
“Our drivers are paid by the load, so they appreciate the lightweight aspect, as well as the comfortable, quiet, spacious
cab. And the aerodynamic, sloped hood gives them better
visibility when they’re going down dirt roads, through fields,
and maneuvering around ditches and culverts,” he said.
“With Kenworth, our operating costs are lower, product
reliability is higher and we get excellent resale value,” says
Nickum. “That’s a testament to the kind of partnership
we’ve enjoyed over the past 50 years, where we can sit
down with Kenworth engineers and stakeholders, and find
solutions that benefit both companies.”
By 2010, Kenworth engineers introduced the versatile
T440, perfectly suited for regional operations. That’s
when Nickum began replacing some of the older
T800s and W900s in his 150-truck fleet with
T440 Day Cabs. Last year, alone, the company
added 16 T440 Day Cabs with Cummins ISL9
engines and lightweight aluminum wheels on
the front and drive axle. By the end of 2014,
Nickum says, the company will have
50 T440s in the fleet.

New York City Turns Others

Kenworth Hybrids Help Lower
Emissions and Save Fuel
New York City’s Department of Sanitation, Parks
Department, and DOT, have all been early adopters in the
use of hybrid vehicles since their inception.
The city’s sanitation department began running hybrid
Kenworth T370s in 2009, and currently has nine in use as
rack trucks, delivering parts to five borough repair shops.
Five other Kenworth T370 hybrids are used as delivery trucks
– shuttling tires to different service locations.
The Kenworth T370 hybrids, purchased through Gabrielli
Kenworth, feature the PACCAR PX-6 engine rated at 240 hp
and 560 lb-ft of torque. “We’re seeing up to a 30 percent
improvement in fuel economy over non-hybrid delivery
trucks,” said Spiro Kattan, supervisor of mechanics for the
New York City Department of Sanitation.
14 World’s Best
NYC Parks
Department operates 17 Kenworth
T370 hybrids –
eight have rack
bodies with lift gates, and the rest feature 5-yard dump
bodies. The hybrid dump trucks haul dirt, sand and clay
to ball fields, and are used for general assignment work.
Nine Kenworth T270 hybrid “bucket trucks” are in service
for the New York City Department of Transportation. All
but one of the Kenworth hybrids are configured as
35-foot working height bucket trucks – five are used to
hang signs around the city, while the others are used for
painting overpasses, inspecting small bridges, and for
electrical repairs. “We’re expecting our hybrid trucks to
pass 30 percent in fuel savings over our non-hybrids,”
said Dan Malone, with the city’s DOT Fleet Services
Administrative Office. The Kenworth hybrids join 54
other T370 non-hybrids in the field for the department.

Monarch Beverage
Commits To CNG
Kenworth T440s
“Every year, our fleet of trucks consumes nearly 1 million gallons of
diesel, but in 2015, we’ll be using
less than 100,000 gallons,” says
Fred Dufour, senior vice president
for Monarch Beverage in
Indianapolis, Ind. With Monarch
Beverage’s decision to convert its
fuel source to compressed natural
gas (CNG) for 85 percent of its
fleet, the company expects to save
60 percent in its overall fuel costs
each year. “That translates to a twoto three-million dollar savings in
fuel per year,” says Dufour.
Indiana’s largest beer and wine distributor, Monarch delivers 15.5 million cases of beer each year and
another 1 million cases of wine.
“Two years ago we purchased two
Kenworth T440s with the Cummins
Westport ISL G engine, and a preproduction Kenworth T660 with the
new 12-liter Cummins ISX12 G
engine,” he says. “We ran the
trucks hard, amassing more than
100,000 miles on each. Since the
CNG cost was just 30 percent that
of diesel, the money we saved on
fuel was substantial. We figured the
payback for the up-cost on CNG
equipment to be 2.3 years.”
That’s when Dufour moved forward
with additional Kenworth T440s
with CNG. “We have been running
27 of the T440s since June of 2012
and they’re doing great,” he says.
“Our drivers have been very excited
about the Kenworth T440s – they’re
great trucks to drive. We have
placed additional orders for
Kenworth T440s, and by 2015, 90
of our 105 trucks will be CNGpowered.

Kenworth K500s
Moving Oil Well Rigs
in West African Oilfields
Kenworth produces a wide range of trucks
from Class 5 up to large, off-highway trucks
used in demanding oil field applications
around the world. Kenworth’s plant in
Renton, Wash., recently produced two large
Kenworth K500 COEs (cab over engine) –
a winch tractor and an oilfield bed truck –
to move oil well rigs for Shell Gabon in
western Africa. These trucks both utilize
136,000-lb planetary rear axles, the largest
ever placed on a K500. Customers, such as
Shell, select the K500 for its shorter wheelbase and excellent maneuverability. This
allows for smaller turning radius surrounding
each wellhead, and minimizes the ecological
effects on the jungle environment.

Kenworth Showcases New 2013
PACCAR MX-13 Engine, Mixer Trucks
at World of Concrete
The new 2013 PACCAR MX-13 engine made its trade
show debut this year at the World of Concrete Show,
Feb. 4-8, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The new
12.9-liter engine offers a range of 380 to 500-hp and
1,450 to 1,850 lb-ft of torque. The high end horsepower
and torque ratings are an increase over those previously
offered for the 2010 PACCAR MX engine, which the
PACCAR MX-13 replaces in 2013.
The new engine is available for the Kenworth T800, T880
and W900 typically selected by vocational customers, in
addition to Kenworth T660, T680 and T700 aerodynamic trucks for over-the-road applications. At the show, the
PACCAR MX-13 was displayed in a Kenworth W900S
mixer rated at 380 hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque and
equipped with an Allison 4500RDS 6-speed transmission
and Con-Tech mixer body.
Also on display were Kenworth’s latest vocational product
line for ready mix operators and construction businesses.
Five Kenworth mixer trucks were exhibited, including two
natural gas vehicles — a T440 and W900S. Both natural
gas vehicles were specified with the Cummins Westport
8.9-liter ISL G engine rated at 320 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of
torque, Allison 4500RDS 6-speed automatic transmission
and McNeilus mixer body.
Other Kenworth mixers included a T800 short hood with
PACCAR MX engine, Allison 4500RDS 6-speed transmission
and Beck Industrial mixer body, and a W900S California
lightweight spec mixer with a Cummins ISL9 engine rated
at 380-hp and 1,300 lb-ft of torque, an Eaton

“You couldn’t find a more corrosive
environment for a truck to operate,”
said John O’Leary, Clintar’s vice president of operations. “We look at it as
emergency service – when our customers need salt and an ice-free lot,
they need it now and we must deliver
with equipment that’s reliable. With
its aluminum cab and the way we
spec the truck with as much aluminum as possible, along with undercoating for added protection, it’s
proved to be very reliable and a great
truck at resisting the ill effects of salt
and salt spray.”

“Employees are our greatest asset.
We want to give them the best equipment and we feel we’re doing that

Glider Kits Now Available
from Kenworth
Kenworth Offers New Dual
LNG Tank Configuration
Gliders are a great alternative for fleets and owner operators with the tools and service technicians to bring a solid
and existing powertrain back to life in a ‘brand new truck’.
The Kenworth glider models feature the latest amenities
and updates in each of the three models (T660, T800 split
fender and W900L). The truck model year of the glider will
be determined by the donor chassis, as long as two of the
three major powertrain components (engine, transmission,
and drive axle) are utilized from the donor chassis. See
your Kenworth dealer for more details about Kenworth
glider kits.
By equipping a Kenworth T800 with dual LNG fuel tanks,
operators now have the option of running the truck up to
700 miles on a single fueling. This option doubles the operating range of a typical LNG-powered Kenworth T800
equipped with a single LNG tank, making the truck a better
choice for long haulers with slip-seat or drop-and-hook operations, and for regional haulers whose drivers travel long distances, but still return home at the end of their shifts. The
Kenworth T800, when equipped with the Westport GX, can
be ordered in a gross combination weight (GCW) of up to
80,000 lbs. for over-the-road operation, with additional ratings exceeding 100,000 lbs. available for certain applications.
For the T800, the GX engine is available in power ratings from
400 to 475 hp and torque ratings from 1,450 to 1,750 lb-ft.
For fleets and owner operators who want to make
old trucks ‘new’ again,
Kenworth is now offering
glider kits for the T660,
T800 (split fender configuration) and W900L models. All sleeper sizes are available. The gliders are designed
to be mated with customer-supplied EPA 2004 engines
and matching transmissions, and the gliders can be spec’d
from Kenworth to best meet the fleet or driver application.
Kenworth is expanding its
extensive line of industry-leading green products by offering
factory-installed, dual liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel
tanks on Kenworth T800s
powered by the 15-liter
Westport GX engine.
Watson & Chalin offers an excellent product line of its popular,
steerable Tru-Track Alumilite family through Kenworth.
• SSR (Super Short Rail) is now available through Kenworth Truck
Company in our SL0893 (8K), SL1093 (10K) and SL1190 (13.5K) suspensions
• A new 20K steerable with all of the benefits of our SL2089 and SL2055
combined into ONE model: SL2065
These new pusher axles are initially available with the Kenworth T880 and T680.
With all of the benefits of our Tru-Track Alumilite family, SSR is now available at
Kenworth. Our super-short rail design allows for more compact packaging when
frame space is limited. You can expect to receive the same superior performance and
warranty support in these new offerings. The Watson & Chalin-Kenworth team has
listened to your needs and we’re pleased to make this new model available.
The new SL2065 raises the bar for a high capacity steerable lift axle. Utilizing
proven bushing, arm and torque rod designs, the SL2065 is our most high roll
and laterally resistant steerable suspension. And when it comes to weight
savings, the SL2065 is over 200 lbs lighter than the SL2089 and more than
60 lbs lighter than the SL2055. Tough, durable and ready to work!
