Peterbilt has added the new PACCAR 20,000- and 22,000-pound wide track steer axles to its vocational lineup.

The PACCAR steer axle is available with standard front air disc brakes or optional drum brakes as well as suspensions and wheel end options to meet the most demanding jobs. Both axle ratings will be available in the Models 567, 520, 389, 367, 365, 348, and the 389 glider kit.

“The PACCAR steer axle continues the Peterbilt tradition of innovative and rugged products for our vocational customers who demand maximum performance,” says Kyle Quinn, Peterbilt general manager and PACCAR senior vice-president. “Whether we’re reducing total cost of ownership or increasing payload, Peterbilt is continuously looking for solutions that maximize our customers’ uptime and profitability.”

The PACCAR steer axle is ideal for the industry’s most demanding vocational applications such as refuse, construction and heavy-haul based on its combination of weight-savings technology and field-tested durability. Its innovative design provides customers valuable operational benefits such as optimal maneuverability with a turn angle of up to 50 degrees.
