Kenworth Truck Co. announced that it now offers the Cummins ISX11.9 engine with rear engine power takeoff on the T800 and W900S models. The option is suited for selected vocational applications such as concrete ready mix, construction, crane and cherry picker, mining and oil well field service, refuse hauler and packer, and wrecker service.

“The use of the Cummins ISX11.9 with REPTO can help eliminate the need for a front-mounted or transmission-mounted power takeoff, and simplifies charge air cooler and radiator design requirements,” says Alan Fennimore, Kenworth vocational marketing manager.

The Cummins ISX11.9 with REPTO is capable to 466 lb.-ft. of continuous torque and a maximum rating of 520 lb.-ft. of torque when used for intermittent load applications. During intermittent operation, the average load may not exceed the continuous rating, and full throttle operation may not exceed 60 minutes without interruption.
