Kenworth To Showcase T880 Mixer with PACCAR MX-13 Engine at World of Concrete

KIRKLAND, Wash., Jan. 15, 2014 – Kenworth will feature the Kenworth T880 with the PACCAR MX-13 engine and a mixer body in its booth (C6203) during the World of Concrete Show Jan. 21-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The new Kenworth T880 recently entered into full production.  At the show, the T880 mixer on display will include a PACCAR MX-13 engine rated at 405 hp and 1,450 lb-ft of torque, Eaton® UltraShift® Plus VMS transmission, McNeilus standard mixer body, and a 116.5-inch BBC hood optimized for the PACCAR MX-13.

The T880 has a 5-piece Metton® hood for easier and faster repairs, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, complex reflector headlamps, excellent maneuverability, and new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles.

The T880 utilizes a 2.1-meter wide, stamped aluminum cab which is robotically assembled. The quiet cab has triple-sealed and robust doors and provides a comfortable 23 inches of room between the seats. The T880 offers the premium Diamond VIT and Vantage trim levels and two interior color options of Sandstone Tan and Slate Gray.

“Kenworth is excited to show the T880 at the World of Concrete for the first time. The all-new T880 is the flagship of Kenworth’s outstanding vocational truck offering and is already attracting extensive interest from vocational operators who want a quality and durable truck with low operating cost in applications such as mixer, dump and bulk haul,” said Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager. “The T880 is anticipated to draw even greater attention as the construction business is expected to improve in 2014.”

Also available in Kenworth’s excellent vocational product line are the Kenworth T440 and W900S. Both vehicles can be specified with the Cummins Westport 8.9-liter ISL G natural engine rated at 320 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The ISL G uses a maintenance-free, three-way catalyst and is 2013 EPA and CARB compliant without the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology or a diesel particulate filter (DPF).

Kenworth’s wide range of vocational chassis configurations for standard or bridge formula-style mixer bodies include the diesel-powered Kenworth T800 short hood and W900S. Both vehicles offer excellent maneuverability and a wide range of vocational options.

Kenworth Truck Company is the manufacturer of The World’s Best® heavy and medium duty trucks. Kenworth’s Internet home page is at www.kenworth.com. Kenworth is a PACCAR company.
