On March 3, 2015, Kenworth announced that it will now offer heavier front axles for its T370 class 7 model.
“The Kenworth T370 is already an extremely versatile truck, but now with the new 18,000-pound and 20,000-pound front axles, customers can put more weight on the front ends in fuel hauling, dump, mixer, utility and crane applications,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing director. “This also allows more payload in a shorter BBC truck package – something our vocational customers will find attractive.”
The 18,000-lb. and 20,000-lb. axles are available with the PACCAR PX-9 engine rated up to 350-hp and 1,150 lb-ft of torque. The package includes a heavy duty, cross-brace reinforced front frame assembly. Bolted cross members and either 10-3/4-inch frame rails, or 10-5/8-inch frame rails with inserts complete the chassis package. Iron hubs, drum brakes, and dual-power steering gears, along with a power steering cooler, are part of the spec package.
