“Fleets and truck operators purchasing new Kenworth T370s can now benefit from the automotive-like feel, lightweight design, ease of maintenance and superior performance offered by Bendix front and rear air disc brakes,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth medium-duty marketing manager. “This new Kenworth option also offers extended brake change intervals, reduced stopping distance and weight reduction compared to drum assemblies.”

The Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes have a two-pin floating caliper design that provides a more stringent overall dimension accuracy and consistent force distribution. According to Bendix, the ADB22X design also significantly reduces brake fade with no degradation of stopping power.

The air disc brakes are available for a single rear axle with a GAWR of 19,000 to 23,000 lbs. with Hendrickson HAS air suspension or dual rear axles with a GAWR up to 40,000 lbs. with Kenworth AG400L suspension. Front axle coverage includes 10,000- and 12,000-lb. capacities.

In December, Kenworth announced that it was making Bendix ADB22X front air disc brakes standard on its Class 8 tractors and trucks. The front air disc brakes were previously available as an option on Kenworth Class 8 models.
