KIRKLAND, Wash. — Kenworth has introduced a new, optional diesel-exhaust fluid (DEF) tank with integrated steps designed for the manufacturer’s T680 and T880 models.
With the option, the access steps to the plate are mounted directly over the DEF tank without requiring additional frame space. This placement of the steps can free up as much as 16 inches — nearly a foot and a half — of valuable frame space, which is ideal for truck operators with constrained frame-space layouts.
The resulting shorter wheelbase can further enhance the maneuverability of the T680 and T880, especial in tight urban areas or on job sites.
The option is available with Kenworth’s 21-gallon, medium-size aerodynamic DEF tanks for use with the T680 and T880. The new option is not available with full or partial chassis fairings.
