Kenworth has published a T440/T470 Body Builder manual to assist with installations on the company’s new truck models.
The manual features detailed information on vehicle dimensions, ride heights, suspension layouts, ground and power take-off clearances and frame layouts for both models. Sections include safety and compliance, dimensions, body mounting, exhaust and aftertreatment, frame modifications, electrical systems and routing.
The KW models span the upper end of Class 7 and lower end of Class 8 with gross vehicle ratings ranging from 33,000 to 68,000 lbs. Both are available with 12,000 to 22,000 lb. front axles, 21,000 to 26,000 lb. single rear axles and 40,000 to 46,000 lb. tandem rear axles.
Standard engines are the Paccar PX-8 at 260 hp with 660 lb.-ft. of torque. Additional options increase the horsepower to 350 and 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque. There is also an optional 9-liter, 2010 Cummins ISL engine rated from 345 to 380 hp and 1,150 to 1,300 lb.-ft. of torque.
The T440 in tractor and truck configurations is ideal for regional haul, city pickup and delivery, municipal and vocational applications, according to Kenworth. The T470 is designed for snowplow, dump, mixer, winch, refuse and other heavy front-axle applications.
