Kenworth’s T880S has a set-forward front axle configuration, designed for ready-mix, dump and mobile crane operations. The truck is available with a 114-inch BBC and 2l8-inch bumper setting, important in specifying a Bridge Formula chassis required to stay under the 40-foot length limit. Operations can specify a mixer tapered (114-inch BBC), dump tapered (115.5-inch BBC) or straight box bumpers (117.5-inch BBC) in a variety of finishes and materials. Removable and cast center-mounted tow hooks are available, depending on bumper selection.

Other units on display: A total of five T880S trucks in different configurations will be at the Kenworth booth.
