Kenworth now offers its popular extended day cab option for the W900S model, used in mixer applications. The big day cab provides an additional six inches of length and five inches of cab height compared to Kenworth’s traditional day cab. The extended model also offers two more inches behind the wheel, additional leg room, up to 21 degrees of recline in the driver’s seat, and two extra cubic feet of storage behind the driver’s seat.
Kenworth says the extended day cab option is a great incentive for mixer fleets to use for driver recruitment and retention, while helping to enhance driver performance and productivity. It’s also available on T660, T800, and W900 models.
Kenworth has also enhanced the W900S model’s maneuverability. The steering gear was moved forward ahead of the axle and longer front springs were added as part of a front end redesign that increases wheel cut by four degrees and reduces the overall turning radius.
Other W900S features include an engine that sits high in the frame and ahead of the cab for easy maintenance access; straight sections of reinforced rubber hose that are more easily available and much less expensive to replace than preformed hoses; and an electrical system designed for durability and streamlined troubleshooting.
