Western Star Truck Sales adds new 4700 tractor to product lineup

Western Star Truck Sales Inc has added a new 4700 tractor to its product lineup.

Since launching the 4700 truck in March 2011 to six targeted vocational segments, Western Star recognized the potential of this truck as a tractor configuration. With several fifthwheel options, the 4700 tractor accommodates bulk haul, local delivery, and construction applications.

Offered in a set-forward and set-back day cab configuration, the 4700 tractor incorporates a high-visibility hood and a variety of fifthwheel and wheelbase selections. The 4700 tractor also has one of the broadest power range offerings in a single truck model. From the lightweight Cummins ISC and ISL engines to the powerful Detroit DD13, the 4700 provides power ratings from 260 to 470 hp. Combined with several transmission offerings including the Allison automatic, Eaton manual, and Eaton UltraShift PLUS, the 4700 tractor can be spec'd for many regional and bulk haul applications.

The company also announced several new options for the 4700 product line. These include:

  • Hendrickson and Watson Chalin lift axles — Several new lift axle solutions from Hendrickson and Watson Chalin increase the customization options for vocational applications.

  • New roof fairings and side extenders — The addition of roof fairing and side extenders help to improve aerodynamic performance and maximize fuel efficiency.

  • Chalmers suspension — The durability of the Chalmers rubber spring suspension offers increased stability and traction for off-road applications, and lower maintenance costs on suspensions and other components such as tires.
