Kenworth will feature its vocational flagship Kenworth T880 with a McNeilus 10.5-cubic yard mixer in its booth (C6212) during the 2015 World of Concrete Show Feb. 3-6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Kenworth will showcase four of its construction models, including the T880 Vocational Truck with the PACCAR MX-13 engine. The T880 was recently selected as the 2015 ATD Truck of the Year by a panel of commercial trucking journalists and a professional driver. It was ranked high for exceptional handling, power, torque and outstanding visibility from the driver’s seat.
The T880 mixer at the show is specified with an Allison six-speed transmission, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, Hendrickson 46,000-pound rear suspension, panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, and 5-piece Metton hood for easier and faster repairs. It utilizes a 2.1-meter wide, stamped aluminum cab, which is robotically assembled. The quiet cab has triple-sealed and robust doors and provides 23 inches of room between the seats.
Also featured is a W900S with a ConTech 10.5 cubic-yard mixer in a pink paint scheme to support breast cancer awareness. The W900s mixer is powered by a PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 405-hp, driven through an Allison 7-speed transmission, and equipped with front and rear air disc brakes.
A compressed natural gas-powered T440 with a standard 10.5 cubic-yard McNeilus mixer, 320-hp Cummins Westport ISL G natural gas engine and Allison 6-speed transmission also will be displayed. A medium duty T370 outfitted with a Putzmeister 20Z pumper, 350-hp PACCAR PX-9 engine and an Eaton 10-speed transmission completes Kenworth’s World of Concrete lineup.
