Kenworth Truck Company has released the Kenworth 2015 Heavy Duty Body Builder Manual for its T680 and T880 models.
The manual offers useful information and guidelines for truck specification and design during the body planning and installation processes.
The comprehensive, 192-page Kenworth manual contains detailed sections on overall dimensions, exhaust and aftertreatment, frame layouts, body mounting, electrical systems, frame modifications, and routing.
The new manual can be especially useful when specifying a new Kenworth T680 or T880, particularly 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 can help reduce the ultimate cost of the body installation.
The Kenworth T680 family’s configurations include the 76-inch mid- and high-roof sleepers, 52-inch mid-roof sleeper, and day cab. The Kenworth T680 with the PACCAR MX-13 engine received the 2013 ATD Heavy Duty Commercial Truck of the Year award.
The Kenworth T880 family includes day cab, 52-inch sleeper and 76-inch mid-roof sleeper configurations. The Kenworth T880 with the PACCAR MX-13 engine recently received the 2015 ATD Commercial Truck of the Year award.
