International Truck and Engine will soon be unveiling the newest model in its PayStar line – the 5900i Set-Back Axle (SBA). Its new axle configuration addresses customer needs
for front load distribution and improved maneuverability.
Powered by Caterpillar and Cummins diesel engines with up to 625 hp and built on standard 12.25-in. frame rails, the new truck also offers a lightweight aluminum cab with an aggressively sloped hood that allows good forward vision.
Other features include: a redesigned front grille for improved cooling; outside air cleaners for better air intake and reduced service intervals; upcoming standard wide-track axles for increased maneuverability; standard dual power-steering gears that require less steering effort (for front axles 14,600 lb and higher); standard ‘Whisper Cab’ sound insulation package; and a new heavy-duty front bumper with tow pin (to haul more than 80,000 lb) or tow hooks (to haul less than 80,000 lb).
The PayStar 5900i SBA is also available as a tractor, and it’s ready for ordering now but will not be officially introduced to the public until the ConExpo-Con/Agg trade show next March.
