Kenworth Truck Co. now offers a front engine power take-off (FEPTO) option for the workhorse Kenworth T800 short-hood model.

Kenworth’s new FEPTO option is designed especially for snowplow, municipal dump, mixer, refuse and crane applications. The new configuration also provides a front-frame extension for applications requiring front-mounted equipment, such as hydraulic rams or hose reels. The FEPTO configuration is available for order with Caterpillar C11 and C13 engines up to 380 hp and the Cummins ISL engine up to 350 hp.

The package provides several features that differentiate the model from Kenworth’s standard T800 short hood.

  • Extended front-frame rails are available with a 66-inch bumper setting in dimensions of 11-5/8-by-3/8, 10-3/4-by-3/8 and 10-11/16-by 1/2 inches.
  • The 950-square-inch radiator includes a modified bottom tank for PTO shaft clearance.
  • The radiator-mounted grille allows the hood to be tilted for daily under-hood inspections and prevents the grille from impacting the snowplow, pump or other front frame-mounted equipment.
  • The cab and hood are raised 31/2 inches on the FEPTO model to provide PTO shaft clearance.
