Western Star debuts new tanker truck

Working with Klein Products, Western Star Trucks has introduced a new high-capacity tank truck. The 4900XD is equipped with a Klein K650 water tank for applications including construction, quarry and mining.

Ontario, CA-based Klein Products is a worldwide manufacturer of water distributing equipment, pump systems and related components.

The truck is available in day cab configuration and includes the largest available Klein water tank for a Class 8 vehicle.

“We’re proud to team up with another premium brand to provide our mining and construction customers a highly efficient truck to tackle the harshest dust conditions,” said John Tomlinson, heavy vocational sales manager, Western Star. “Together with Klein, we’re committed to offering an affordable solution to reduce health and equipment hazards, and ultimately help our customers be more successful on the job site.”

According to Western Star, the 4900XD features an extremely low center of gravity and is available with a rollover protection system (ROPS). The truck is also spec’d with outboard cab mounts and up to 20,000 lb. front and 70,000 lb. rear suspension to maximize stability on uneven terrain and provide a more comfortable ride.

Additionally, the Klein K650 tank’s distinctive trapezoid design greatly improves rear visibility for drivers, the company added.

The 4900XD can be equipped with a fuel efficient Detroit DD15, DD16 or DDC 60 Tier III engine, each easily accessible through the truck’s three-piece butterfly hood.
