Watson and Chalin steerable pusher axle, factory-installed transmission power takeoff (PTO) and auxiliary split-shaft PTO, and front and rear Bendix air disc brakes.

We certainly appreciate the efforts of Kenworth and its employees to provide us with excellent trucks that get the job done in our tough, demanding applications in the oilfields.”
