Kenworth is adding a set-forward front axle configuration to its T880, the company announced at the ConcreteWorks truck show hosted by the National Ready Mix Concrete Association.  The new configuration-the T880S- is designed for fleet and truck operators in ready-mix, dump, and mobile crane applications.  Jason Skoog, Kenworth assistant general manager for sales and marketing, says the truck is available with a 114-inch BBC and best-in-class 28-inch bumper setting.  Tare weight is minimized, he adds, and weight distribution is optimized so the Federal Bridge Formula can be easily met.  The bumper setting is especially important in spec’ing Bridge Formula chassis required to stay under the 40-foot length limit.  The new T880S is available with a set-forward front axle ranging from 14,600 pounds to 22,800 pounds.  Single, tandem or tridem drive axles and a wide variety of factory installed lift axles, are among a range of options available to meet the most demanding jobsite requirements.  The T880S is standard with the 12.9 liter Paccar MX-13 engine, which provides up to 500-hp and 1850 lb-ft of torque.
