WARRENVILLE, Ill. – International is expanding its PayStar vocational truck line with the addition of the PayStar 5900i Set-Back Axle (SBA) truck, designed for on- and off-road vocational applications.
The truck features a new axle configuration ideal for construction, oilfield, logging, heavy-hauling and mining applications. The set-back axle design is aimed at providing optimum front load distribution and improved maneuverability, the company announced. The newest PayStar can be spec’ed with Cat or Cummins power with up to 625 hp. The truck is built on a standard 12.25-inch frame rail chassis offering rugged performance, officials said. The truck features a lightweight aluminum cab with a sloped hood.
“Bringing the International PayStar 5900i SBA to market is a signal to customers that International is committed to providing them with trucks suited to their unique vocational requirements,” said Phil Christman, vice-president and general manager of International’s Severe Service Vehicle Center. “PayStar vehicles have proven to be reliable, durable trucks over the past several decades and this tough, new heavy-duty, high horsepower truck will extend its legacy.”
Additional features built into the newest PayStar include: a sloped hood for improved visibility; a redesigned front grille for improved cooling and styling; outside air cleaners for improved air intake and reduced service intervals; upcoming standard wide-track axles for improved maneuverability; standard dual power steering gears that require less steering effort; and a WhisperCab insulation package for a quieter cab. The enhanced cooling system is ideal for stationary high horsepower applications, the company said. The enhancements allow the truck to cool up to 625 hp in stationary applications.
