All-wheel drive T880

Rolf Lockwood

Kenworth’s flagship construction truck, the T880, is now available in an all-wheel drive configuration. The front drive axle is installed at the Kenworth factory, which speeds delivery time and saves money.

For severe-duty applications where the ultimate in traction is required, the company says the new configuration will be a welcome spec. The AWD T880 will see use in oil fields, configured as an off-road crane, in utility and construction work, and in fire/rescue duty, among other applications.

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