Kenworth to Feature Five New Kenworth T880’s at CONEXPO-CON/AGG
Five new Kenworth T880s are the featured trucks of Kenworth Truck Company’s extensive and diverse, 10-truck vocational lineup at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 March 4-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The new Kenworth T880 entered into full production this past December. Kenworth’s booth (S-63640) will include two T880 dump trucks, a mixer and a rock slinger, all specified with the fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 engine, along with a T880 volumetric mixer equipped with a Cummins ISX15 engine.
The Kenworth T880 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated up to 500 hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. The PACCAR MX-13 provides a lightweight, fuel-efficient engine for vocational applications, including dumps and heavy haul applications over 100,000 lbs. The T880 can be ordered with a 116.5-inch BBC hood optimized for the PACCAR MX-13 engine or with the 122.5-inch BBC hood.
“The all-new Kenworth T880 is the flagship of our excellent line of quality vocational trucks,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager. “It’s available in a number of key applications that visitors to our booth can see at the show. The T880 is attracting a great deal of interest from vocational truck operators and is well-positioned in the marketplace as the construction business is expected to improve in 2014.”
The T880 also offers a 5-piece Metton® hood for easier and faster repairs, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, complex reflector headlamps, excellent maneuverability, and new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles.
“In addition to the T880s, we’re also exhibiting everything from Kenworth’s C550 twin steer bed truck and C500 heavy hauler to the versatile, medium duty Kenworth T370 in both a concrete pumper and service body application, and a Kenworth T440 tire service truck with a PACCAR PX-9 engine,” Fennimore said. “Our vocational line-up is designed for durability, low operating cost and excellent performance in challenging applications. Kenworth customers can count on Kenworth trucks to get the job done in their specific vocational application.”
