The new 124-page Kenworth Medium Duty Body Builders Manual aims at T170 class 5, T270 class 6, and T370 class 7 trucks normally used in pickup and delivery, beverage, tow and recovery, fire and rescue, landscaping, construction, propane, fuel hauling, and utility applications.

It contains sections on dimensions, safety and compliance, body mounting, frame modifications, and electrical systems for Kenworth 2008 and later medium-duty conventional models with 2007 Paccar PX-6 and PX-8 engines.

The manual is useful when spec’ing a vehicle, especially when the body builder is involved in the vehicle definition and ordering process. Professional body builders can often contribute valuable information that helps to reduce the ultimate cost of the body installation, Kenworth notes.
It’s available as a ‘pdf’ file in the Products section of Kenworth’s homepage ( under the T170, T270, and T370 medium duty models.
