For the first time, the 2009 edition of the Kenworth Truck Co. medium-duty body builders' manual includes hybrid models.
The Kenworth T170, 270 and 370 and Hybrid Body Builder Manual includes detailed information on the vehicles, which the OEM noted are ideal for applications such as P&D, beverage, tow and recovery, fire and rescue, fuel hauling and utilities.
The 126-pg manual can help in spec'ing a vehicle, especially when the body builder is involved in the vehicle definition and ordering process, Kenworth said. The manual contains sections on dimensions, safety and compliance, body mounting, frame modifications and electrical for 2008 and later models with 2007 Paccar PX-6 and PX-8 EPA-compliant engines.
