At the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas, Peterbilt has introduced a new set-forward front axle (SFFA) configuration for their Model 567, creating an ideal truck for mixer applications.

The SFFA maximizes payloads and meets state and federal bridge law requirements, said Robert Woodall, Peterbilt Assistant General Manager of Sales and Marketing.

“The Model 567 is a low-weight leader and this new configuration will let customers take full advantage of that through optimized weight distribution,” Woodall said.

The Model 567 SFFA is available in 115- and 121-inch BBC lengths. The 115-inch model has a bumper to front axle distance of 29 inches and the 121-inch model has a bumper to front axle distance of 31 inches. These dimensions comply with federal bridge law requirements.

The model on display is outfitted with a PACCAR PX-9 engine, an Allison automatic transmission with FuelSense Technology and a McNeilus mixer body

Peterbilt also has two other trucks on display in its exhibit in booth C5172 in the Central Hall:

  • A Model 567 with a 115-inch BBC, set-back axle, PACCAR MX-13 engine, Allison automatic transmission with FuelSense technology and a Beck mixer body.
  • A low-cab forward Model 320 with a Cummins ISX12 engine, Fuller 10-speed transmission and a Schwing concrete pumper body.
