Kenworth Truck Co. is making a new heavy-duty front frame assembly available as an option on its T370 medium-duty models. The assembly makes it easier for body builders to install customer winch bumpers, the company said.
“The T370 front frame option assembly package especially targets customers, such as utilities and municipalities, that operate medium duty winch trucks,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth medium duty marketing manager. “This option simplifies and standardizes the installation of specialty winch bumpers and further expands the benefits and value of the Kenworth T370 for customers.”
The new Kenworth T370 option includes durable Austempered ductile iron (ADI) cast front drive brackets, 3/8-in. thick steel front adapters, enhanced radiator crossmember assembly brackets, and C-channel front frame sections that can accept a winch bumper. The bumper adapters can be used with other specialty bumpers commonly installed on utility, overhead automobile haulers, and fire and emergency vehicles.
Rams Horn tow hooks are provided for vehicle transport. The T370 must be specified with front springs rated at 13,200 lbs. or more, and may be ordered with either a front or non-front drive axle.
