LAS VEGAS -- Peterbilt launched a new set-forward front axle configuration of the vocational Model 567, made for mixer and other weight-conscious applications. The truck was revealed at the World of Concrete show.

The Model 567 SFFA is designed to maximize payloads and meet state and federal bridge law requirements. It is available in 115- and 121-inch-BBC lengths. The 115-inch model has a bumper to front axle distance of 29 inches; the 121-inch length has a bumper to front axle distance of 31 inches.

The dimensions were designed to maximize maneuverability while providing a wheelbase that complies with bridge law requirements. The truck on display at the World of Concrete expo is equipped with a Paccar PX-9 engine, an Allison automatic transmission with FuelSense technology and a McNeilus mixer body.

Both the set-forward and set-back front axle configurations of the Model 567 are standard with Paccar MX-13 engines with up to 500 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque. Both versions are also available as a day cab or with Peterbilt’s lineup of detachable sleepers.
