Peterbilt unveiled a major new product configuration aimed at concrete contractors and other weight-conscious applications during the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas this week.   

Its Model 567, in production for just over a year, now enjoys expanded versatility and utility in a new set-forward front axle configuration. It lets customers maximize payloads through optimized weight distribution.      

Like the set-back axle version, the Model 567 SFFA is available in both 115- and 121-in. BBC lengths. The 115-in. model has a bumper-to-front-axle distance of 29 in. and the ‘121’ makes that distance 31 in. These dimensions were carefully engineered to maximize maneuverability, says Pete.

Both the set-forward and set-back front axle configurations of the Model 567 are standard with the PACCAR MX-13 Engine with up to 500 hp and 1850 lb ft of torque. The truck on display at the show sported a PACCAR PX-9 engine, an Allison automatic transmission with FuelSense technology, and a McNeilus mixer body. Both models are available as day cabs or with Peterbilt’s complete lineup of detachable sleepers.       

The Model 567 SFFA is available to order now, with production scheduled for June.
