DENTON, Tex. – During the 2015 World of Concrete show in Las Vegas, Peterbilt unveiled a new set-forward front axle configuration for its model 567.
It is ideal for mixer applications and the like.
“The Model 567 SFFA (set-forward front axle) lets customers maximize payloads while helping meet state and federal bridge law requirements,” said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt assistant general manager of sales and marketing. “The Model 567 is a low-weight leader and this new configuration will let customers take full advantage of that through optimized weight distribution.”
It is available in both 115- and 121- inch BBC length. The truck displayed at World of Concrete featured a PX-9 engine and Allison transmission.
“The new axle position builds on the Model 567’s already exceptional versatility, helping customers across a wide range of applications reach higher levels of performance, productivity and profitability,” said Woodall. “The Model 567 broke new ground for visibility, maneuverability and durability. Customer reception of the Model 567 has been overwhelmingly positive and the new SFFA configuration gives our customers more choices than ever to meet their jobsite requirements and business goals.”
The Model 567 SFFA can be ordered now through Peterbilt dealerships. Production is scheduled for June.
