Kenworth T880 now available in all-wheel drive

Kenworth’s T880 construction truck is now available in an all-wheel drive configuration, the company announced. The front drive axle is installed at the Kenworth factory.

“For severe duty applications where the ultimate in traction is required, our new configuration is a welcomed spec,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth’s marketing director. “We see our all-wheel drive T880 being used in oil fields, configured as an off-road crane, in utility and construction work, or used with municipalities and fire/rescue. The Kenworth T880 represents the ultimate in toughness and durability for all applications.”

The Marmon Herrington MT-22 front drive axle is available in a 6×6 or 8×8 Class 8 configuration with a capacity rating up to 22,000 lbs. The all-wheel drive configuration requires a Fabco transfer case, and can be specified with Fabco’s 1-speed TC-142 or 2-speed TC-143 transfer case, depending on customer requirements.
