Kenworth has added Hendrickson rear air ride suspensions as available options on its K270 and K370 medium-duty cabovers.
The trucks come standard with Reyco mechanical spring suspensions, but to address customers that want a softer ride that an air ride suspension can deliver, the vehicles can now be ordered with the Hendrickson models, said Doug Powell, medium-duty marketing manager.
“For those hauling high value cargo, glass or bottled beverages, we expect the Hendrickson HAS210L and HAS230L rear air ride suspensions to be a popular option. They’re the same suspension systems that are already available for our medium duty conventionals,” Powell said.
Applications for the K270 and K370 include pick-up and delivery, lease/rental, towing/recovery, landscaping, furniture, and food processing and distribution that require a highly maneuverable truck with 16- to 28-ft. van body size, stake bed, or roll-on/roll-off bed. The 63.4-in. BBC (front bumper to back of the cab) on the K270 and K370 provides a 55-degree wheel cut for excellent maneuverability.
