KW T880’s all-wheel-drive option

Kenworth’s flagship construction truck, the T880, broadened its application reach with new availability of an all-wheel-drive configuration. The front drive axle is installed at the Kenworth factory, which speeds delivery time and saves costs for customers.

“For severe duty applications where the ultimate in traction is required, our new configuration is a welcomed spec,” said Kenworth Marketing Director Kurt Swihart. “We see our all-wheel-drive T880 being used in oilfields, configured as an off-road crane, in utility and construction work, or used with municipalities and fire/rescue.”

The Marmon Herrington MT-22 front drive axle is available in a 6×6 or 8×8 Class 8 configuration with a capacity rating up to 22,000 pounds. The configuration requires a Fabco transfer case, and can be specified with Fabco’s 1-speed TC-142 or 2-speed TC-143 transfer case, depending on customer requirements.
