Heavy duty truck for medium duty applications

Kenworth offers new brochure on heavy-duty T470 model truck.

Kirkland, Wash., Dec. 20, 2010—Kenworth now offers a new brochure on its Kenworth T470 model truck. The T470 provides heavy-duty performance and durability in more demanding medium-duty vocational and municipal applications, including snowplow, dump, mixer, winch and refuse.

The Kenworth T470 comes in a lighter weight configuration than a Class 8 truck with more optional horsepower than a medium duty vehicle. The T470 utilizes the same reliable and ergonomic multiplexed dash, aerodynamic sloped hood and three-piece bumper, best-in-class forward lighting with Halogen projector headlamps, and Kenworth Driver Information Center found in Kenworth’s heavy-duty product line.

The six-page Kenworth T470 brochure offers comprehensive product information, including a full page with detailed specifications for axles, battery boxes, brakes, bumpers, cab, engines, exhaust options, frame, fuel tanks, hood, interior, starting and charging, suspension, transmissions, wheels and tires, and special equipment and options.

Available as a straight truck or tractor in gross vehicle weight (GVW) ranging from 33,000 lbs. to 68,000 lbs., the T470 features modern styling, superior ergonomics and a fuel-efficient powertrain in a robust chassis. With full parent rail extensions providing maximum resistance to bending moment (RBM) from one end of the rail to the other, the T470 has a solid and durable mounting platform for snowplows, winches, hydraulic pumps and front stabilizers.

The T470 is standard with the PACCAR PX-8 engine rated up to 350 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Optional engine choices are the Cummins ISL9 engine, rated up to 380 hp and 1,300 lb-ft of torque. Axle ratings are from 12,000 to 22,000 lbs. (front), 21,000 to 30,000 lbs. (single rear) and 40,000 to 46,000 lbs. (dual rear). The T470 is available with a variety of manual and automatic transmissions.

The T470 is standard in a day cab configuration and optional with the Kenworth Extended Day Cab and 38-inch Kenworth AeroCab FlatTop sleeper. The T470 can also be ordered with an air ride cab, factory-installed power take-off (PTO) and one lift axle. Clean frame rails and an exhaust-free back of cab clear the way for quick and efficient installation of a wide range of bodies and chassis-mounted equipment.
