Kenworth Truck Co. says it offers an online body builders manual for its T170 Class 5, T270 Class 6 and T370 Class 7 models. The medium-duty models are spec’d for pickup-and-delivery, beverage, tow-and-recovery, fire-and-rescue, landscaping, construction, propane, fuel hauling and utility applications.
The 124-page Kenworth Medium Duty Body Builders Manual is available as a .pdf file in the Products section of Kenworth’s homepage, www.kenworth.com, under the T170, T270 and T370 medium-duty models. The manual contains sections on dimensions, safety and compliance, body mounting, frame modifications, and electrical for 2008 and later medium-duty conventional models with 2007 Paccar PX-6 and PX-8 EPA compliant engines.
The Kirkland, Wash.-based truck maker says the manual is useful when specifying a vehicle, especially when the body builder is involved in the vehicle definition and ordering process. Early in the process, professional body builders may contribute valuable information that helps to reduce the ultimate cost of the body installation.
