The Western Star Model 4700 tractor complements the Model 4700 truck Western Star durable daycab configuration for regional-haul and vocational applications. The new tractor features several fifth-wheel options to accommodate various applications such as bulk haul, local delivery and construction. Available in a set-forward and set-back daycab configuration, the 4700 tractor incorporates a high-visibility hood and a wide variety of fifth-wheel and wheelbase selections. It also features a broad power range in a single truck model – from 260 to 470 hp – available from the lightweight, economical Cummins ISC and ISL engines up to the powerful, efficient Detroit DD13. These engine options are combined with several transmission offerings, including the Allison automatic, Eaton manual and Eaton UltraShift Plus, which Jackson says allows the 4700 tractor to be ideally spec’d for many regional and bulk haul applications.
