Kenworth Truck Co. has unveiled a new front engine power take-off (FEPTO) for the Kenworth T800.

The T800 FEPTO is designed for municipal and vocational fleets that require a front engine PTO for snowplow, dump, mixer, refuse, crane and other applications. This configuration also provides a front-frame extension for applications requiring front-mounted equipment, such as hydraulic rams or hose reels.

The extended front frame rails are available in sizes of 10 3/4 in. by 3/8 in., 11 5/8 in. by 3/8 in., and 10 11/16 in. by 1/2 in. with a 66-in. or 73-in. bumper setting. An optional front engine PTO crankshaft-driven adapter can be ordered.

The T800 FEPTO utilizes a new hood designed to provide an increase in cooling module size without having to raise the cab height. The grille is mounted to the 1,440 sq.-in. radiator in a fixed position, allowing the hood to be tilted for daily under-hood inspections and helps prevent the grille from bumping the snowplow, pump or other front frame-mounted equipment.

The vehicle is offered with a 2010 Paccar MX engine rated up to 485 hp. and the 2010 Cummins ISX11.9 up to 425 hp. The truck can be specified with Allison automatic or Eaton manual and UltraShift Plus transmissions.
