Peterbilt Improves Model 567

Peterbilt Model 567

Peterbilt says its Model 567 workhorse is more versatile than ever with several new enhancements, including expanded PTO functionality when paired with the PACCAR MX-13 engine. That spec will feature several improvements, particularly appealing for applications where extended PTO operation is required, such as refuse, oilfield, and construction work. PTO options are compatible with all MX-13 horsepower and torque ratings.

Among the new enhanced PTO features, regeneration of the diesel particulate filter (DPF) can take place during PTO operation. As well, shifting gears during mobile PTO operation does not limit torque output; PTO operation time can be logged for reporting purposes; owners can activate external notification of impending DPF regeneration; and there’s remote throttle capability while in PTO mode.

Additionally, says Pete, body installation is facilitated through easy access to databus signals from the optional 12-pin, B-can connector found at the end of the frame or back of the cab or sleeper.

The Model 567 has always been available with factory-installed electric-over-air PTO controls to help enable customer-installed, transmission-mounted PTOs. The company also offers an extensive variety of factory-installed Fabco and Namco split-shaft PTOs for higher output applications.

Peterbilt also introduced an in-cab battery box option that has a disconnect switch with lock-out/tag-out capabilities. It’s said to be ideal for vocational customers who need additional frame-rail space, with the battery box positioned under the passenger seat, helping protect it from potential jobsite damage. It’s specifically designed to hold AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries and is standard with steel hold-downs.

The lock-out/tag-out feature helps stop battery drain and provides an additional safety measure during service and repairs by preventing the truck from accidentally starting.
