Peterbilt Motors Company has set a company production record for its Model 320.
The low-cab-forward vehicle, suited for vocational markets including refuse, construction, tanker and fire service applications, is designed to facilitate specialized body installations, provide a comfortable work environment and the durability required to operate in extremely harsh conditions, Peterbilt says.
“We are very proud to reach this Model 320 production milestone, increasing our production by 33 percent over the previous record year, which serves as an indication our customers recognize the benefits and value this product offers,” says Bill Kozek, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice president. “Peterbilt is a leader in developing solutions for the vocational markets, and the Model 320 is a unique product that spans a wide range of applications, from inner-city streets to landfills, and from jet fuels to concrete pumpers, where the worksites require excellent visibility for operators, reliability to operate day in and day out, and the durability to withstand the rigors of the jobs they perform.”
The Model 320 offers a full range of axle selections in single, tandem or tri-drive configurations, Peterbilt says, plus a full complement of tag and pusher axle options and a tandem steer front axle configuration rated at 36,000 lbs. For heavier applications, the company says optional frame liners are available.
