Kenworth T880 Dump Truck

Five new Kenworth T880s are the featured trucks of Kenworth Truck Company’s extensive and diverse, 10-truck vocational lineup at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 March 4 to 8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The new Kenworth T880 entered into full production this past December. Kenworth’s booth (S-63640) will include two T880 dump trucks, a mixer and a rock slinger, all specified with the fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 engine, along with a T880 volumetric mixer equipped with a Cummins ISX15 engine.
The Kenworth T880 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine rated up to 500 hp and 1,850 ft.-lbs. of torque. The PACCAR MX-13 provides a lightweight, fuel-efficient engine for vocational applications, including dumps and heavy haul applications over 100,000 lbs. The T880 can be ordered with a 116.5-inch BBC hood optimized for the PACCAR MX-13 engine or with the 122.5-inch BBC hood.
“The all-new Kenworth T880 is the flagship of our excellent line of quality vocational trucks,” says Alan Fennimore, Kenworth Vocational Marketing Manager. "It’s available in a number of key applications that visitors to our booth can see at the show. The T880 is attracting a great deal of interest from vocational truck operators and is well-positioned in the marketplace as the construction business is expected to improve in 2014.”
The T880 also offers a five-piece Metton hood for easier and faster repairs, air-assisted hydraulic clutch, panoramic windshield for enhanced visibility, complex reflector headlamps, excellent maneuverability, and new lightweight, factory-installed lift axles.
“In addition to the T880s, we're also exhibiting everything from its C550 twin steer bed truck and C500 heavy hauler to the versatile, medium-duty Kenworth T370 in both a concrete pumper and service body application, and a Kenworth T440 tire service truck with a PACCAR PX-9 engine,” Fennimore says. “Our vocational line-up is designed for durability, low operating cost and excellent performance in challenging applications. Kenworth customers can count on Kenworth trucks to get the job done in their specific vocational application.”
