Kenworth announced that two Hendrickson rear air-ride suspensions are now available as options on Kenworth medium-duty cabovers.
According to Doug Powell, Kenworth medium-duty marketing manager, the Kenworth K270 and K370 cabovers come standard with soft riding Reyco mechanical spring suspensions, “but some customers want another level of comfort and cargo cradling that only an air ride suspension can deliver. That’s where the Hendrickson suspensions fit in,” he said.
“For those hauling high-value cargo, glass or bottled beverages, we expect the Hendrickson HAS210L and HAS230L rear air ride suspensions to be a popular option. They’re the same suspension systems that are already available for our medium-duty conventionals,” Powell said.
The announcement was made in conjunction with The Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
Applications for the K270 and K370 include pick-up and delivery, lease/rental, towing/recovery, landscaping, furniture, and food processing and distribution that require a highly maneuverable truck with 16- to 28-foot van body size, stake bed, or roll-on/roll-off bed. The 63.4-inch BBC (front bumper to back of the cab) on the K270 and K370 provides a 55-degree wheel cut.
