Ken­worth T370 Now Avail­able with Fac­to­ryIn­stalled Heavy Front Drive Axles

Road Today - - Industry News -

The Ken­worth T370 is now avail­able with fac­to­ryin­stalled 18,000 lb. and 20,000 lb. front drive axles. The new of­fer­ing is tar­geted for heavy util­ity ser­vices, con­struc­tion, mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, fire and res­cue, and other spe­cialty ap­pli­ca­tions.

The Ken­worth T370 of­fers the Fabco FSD18A and FSD-20A front drive axles paired with an all-new Fabco TC548 trans­fer case for ex­cep­tional dura­bil­ity. The two front drive axles are avail­able with the PACCAR PX-9 engine rated up to 350 hp and 1,150 lb-ft of torque. Both mod­els re­quire ta­per­leaf front springs, and are avail­able with air or me­chan­i­cal rear sus­pen­sions.

Ken­worth has de­signed the front drive axle con­fig­u­ra­tions with the low­est pos­si­ble cab and frame heights. This al­lows eas­ier body ac­cess and per­mits body builder boom in­stal­la­tions to re­main un­der most height re­quire­ments in U.S. states and Cana­dian prov­inces.

In ad­di­tion, the trans­fer case oc­cu­pies frame space in­side the rails from 36 to 52 inches be­hind back of cab, which pro­vides clear space be­hind cab for body builder out­rig­ger equip­ment. The trans­fer case in­cludes an air ac­ti­vated front axle en­gage­ment switch and dash mounted in­di­ca­tor light, as well as a switch to con­trol the high and low ranges in the trans­fer case.

The T370 is avail­able with a gross ve­hi­cle weight rat­ing (GVWR) of up to 66,000 lbs., and can be spec­i­fied with manual, au­to­mated or au­to­matic trans­mis­sions. The Ken­worth T370 is al­ready avail­able in 4x4 and 6x6 con­fig­u­ra­tions with axle rat­ings from 10,000 lbs. to 16,000 lbs.
