Western Star adds 4900 FA configuration

Western Star Trucks has announced a new configuration option for its 4900 FA model series.

Geared toward the construction and severe-duty applications such as West Coast mixers and super dump applications, the new set-forward 109-inch BBC twin steer features a three degree wheel cut improvement over previous designs, which offers greater maneuverability for off-road applications.

The 4900 FA 109-inch twin steer is equipped with a 450-hp, 12.8L MBE 4000 engine, Eaton Fuller 11-speed transmission, and Meritor Tandem 40,000-lb front axles and 46,000-lb rear axles. In addition, the 4900 FA twin steer features shackled springs, rather than slipper springs, for a 30 percent ride improvement without compromising load ratings.

The 4900 FA twin steer also features a roomy and well-insulated cab, in addition to suspended brake and clutch petals.
