Last week we covered Peterbilt dump truck models currently in production, now we move on to Peterbilt’s brother brand, the Kenworth. Both truck types fall under the Paccar banner, so it will be interesting to see how the Kenworth dump trucks compare.
As with the Peterbilt truck models, the Kenworth models are ordered numerically and we only include the ones still in production. For example, you can still purchase a used T660, but their production halted in 2017.
The T270, a true Class 6 vehicle rated at 26,000 lbs GVW, is available as a dump truck and can be configured for non-CDL operation to broaden your pool of drivers.
Start with a versatile, rugged, and reliable chassis capable of tackling the toughest jobs. Then add advantages like contemporary aerodynamic styling, great visibility, excellent maneuverability, a driver-pleasing premium interior, and quick single point daily maintenance checks. These are trucks you can count on.
The Class 7 T370, as a dump truck, offers a GVW range from 26,001 to 66,000 lbs. It is a multi-dimensional performer to suit almost any load.
The T370 comes with state-of-the-art engine options for maximum power with excellent fuel economy and longevity, a wide range of axle and suspension capacities optimized to your loads and your roads, and many different manual and automatic transmission choices for just the right gearing no matter how long your driver has spent behind the wheel of a truck.
The T440 features modern aerodynamic styling, excellent visibility and maneuverability, superior ergonomics, and a fuel-efficient powertrain – all, in a robust chassis design meant to deliver more value over the long-haul or short-haul.
The PACCAR MX engines, axles, and PACCAR 12-speed automated transmission were designed from the ground up to work seamlessly with Kenworth trucks. Put them in a Kenworth truck, and the T800 possesses the strength and versatility to tackle whatever task your business can throw at it.
The next time your job load requires maximum effort, dispatch the one truck that’s equipped to handle it: your Kenworth T880.
The T880 has the strength, stamina and operating economy you need to get the job done. Trucks at this size are becoming bulky, so these larger trucks are better when maneuverability is not a top priority over raw power.
Since its initial production almost sixty years ago (1961), the Kenworth W900 has been a standard in heavy-duty trucking, but it can also be used as a dump truck to carry heavy loads, say, from a quarry to a construction site on the other side of the county.
As with the sister T800 (and most vehicles on this list unless specially modified), the W900 comes with Paccar powertrains to give the truck it needs to complete the haul.
Presence, power, and personal style wrapped in a world-class design that redefines the long hood conventional. For professional drivers, the W990 represents the ultimate reward that stands for their dedication and sense of pride.
The video above shows the W990 hauling livestock, but the W990 is more than capable of working as a dump truck. When it comes to Kenworth hauling, it is hard to get much better than this.
Paccar purchased the Kenworth business in 1945 and has been utilizing the brand strongly since. No matter which model you purchase as a dump truck, you are sure to get a dependable vehicle that can get your jobs done.
