Kenworth announces K270 and K370 body builder manual updates

Kenworth now offers its latest Kenworth Cabover Body Builder Manual, which contains useful information and guidelines for truck specification and design during the body planning and installation processes. The manual’s information is specific to Kenworth K270 Class 6 and Kenworth K370 Class 7 cabovers.

The comprehensive 96-page Kenworth Cabover Body Builder Manual contains detailed sections on cab and chassis dimensions, 2013 engines, exhaust and aftertreatment designs and functionality, frame layouts, chassis and cab electrical systems, body mounting, frame modifications, and routing.

“Kenworth’s quality K270 and K370 cabovers give customers an excellent selection of trucks that fit various applications,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth medium duty marketing manager. “The Kenworth manual provides information and guidelines that are very beneficial during the cabover body planning and installation processes. Early in the vehicle definition and ordering process, body builders can often contribute valuable input that may help reduce the ultimate cost of the customer’s cabover body installation.”

Kenworth says its K270 and K370 cabovers are for beverage distributors, pick-up and delivery, furniture, food processors, landscape, towing, and other urban delivery applications. A key advantage of the Kenworth cabovers over medium duty conventional trucks is a 55-degree wheel cut for a tighter turning radius and greater maneuverability for operating in crowded urban environments.
