The Kenworth T680 on-highway truck is now standard with the JOST JSK37USB fifth wheel. JOST fifth wheels offer a simple and safe design with only four moving parts. The positive coupling design ensures a true connection, providing Kenworth drivers with the assurance of a safe coupling, according to an announcement.
JOST’s mechanism allows infinite adjustments versus notched adjustments. Wear adjustment is maintained with a single adjustment screw. The ability to perform maintenance and minor rebuilds on the JOST fifth wheel — without removing it from the chassis — assures owners of Kenworth trucks lower cost of ownership with JOST now positioned as the standard offering for the Kenworth T680.
The JOST fifth wheel has a low 60-lb. pull force handle, making operation easier for drivers. JOST offers a five-year warranty on all of its durable cast ductile iron top plates.
“We continue to add excellent products as standard equipment that further enhance the performance of the Kenworth T680. The JOST fifth wheel provides safety, durability, ease of maintenance, low cost of ownership and weight savings that benefit our customers,” says Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director.
