Kenworth Truck Company has produced the 2009 edition of its online medium duty body builders manual, which now includes Kenworth hybrid models for the first time.
The Kenworth T170 / T270 / T370 and Hybrid Body Builder Manual features detailed information on truck models used in pickup and delivery, beverage, tow and recovery, fire and rescue, landscaping, construction, propane, fuel hauling and utility applications.
The 126-page Kenworth manual is useful when specifying a vehicle, especially when the body builder is involved in the vehicle definition and ordering process. Early in the process, professional body builders can often contribute valuable information that helps to reduce the ultimate cost of the body installation.
The manual contains sections on dimensions, safety and compliance, body mounting, frame modifications, and electrical for Kenworth 2008 and later medium duty conventional models with 2007 PACCAR PX-6 and PX-8 EPA compliant engines. The PACCAR PX-6 engine offers the highest horsepower-to-weight ratio in the industry, and the PACCAR PX-8 engine has 1,000 lb-ft of torque for heavier loads and severe grades.
