Western Star launches new 4900XD water tanker

FORT MILL, S.C. — Western Star has partnered with Klein Products to develop a 6,500-gallon water tank truck for the 4900XD.

The truck features a Klein K650 water tank, to provide a more efficient road dust control operation for construction, quarry and mining applications.

The Western Star 4900XD is equipped with Klein’s largest available water tank for Class 8 vehicles, reducing the need for refill trips.

“We’re proud to team up with another premium brand to provide our mining and construction customers a highly efficient truck to tackle the harshest dust conditions,” said John Tomlinson, heavy vocational sales manager, Western Star. “Together with Klein, we’re committed to offering an affordable solution to reduce health and equipment hazards, and ultimately help our customers be more successful on the job site.”

The truck features a low center of gravity and is available with rollover protection technology. Other features includes a custom-drilled 3.4 million RBM steel frame chassis, galvannealed steel cab and aluminum fenders. It can be ordered with the Detroit DD15, DD16 or DDC 60 Tier III engine.
