Chassis Frame Layout
Kenworth trucks can be built to a variety of wheelbases with components mounted onto the frame to suit your needs. The strength and weight distribution of each frame is enhanced by locating the various parts so that loads are evenly spread and fuel tank capacity can be maximised.
Battery boxes are positioned to minimise the length of battery cables for ease of starting and to ensure the batteries are subjected to the lowest possible shock loads.
