Tough enough for the Australian outback and the highway, the traditional T909 is one of the best of the Kenworth line.

 

Kenworth DAF Melbourne is offering a 2015 T909 prime mover for sale. With Eaton 22 series Ultrashift transmission, Meritor RT46-160 diffs, and Airglide 460 suspension, this all-rounder is versatile enough for the highway or roughest outback track.

It’s powered by a 550hp Cummins ISXe5 Euro 5 engine with a torque rating of 1,850 lbft. The ISXe5 can be equipped with Advanced Dynamic Efficient Powertrain Technology (ADEPT) – a suite of electronic features that interact with Eaton AMT’s, dynamically adapting to operating conditions to enhance fuel economy with no impact on productivity.

The truck has travelled 1.4 million kilometres and had a full in-chassis rebuild at the 780,000-kilometre mark.

This prime mover used to be a part of a leading operator’s fleet. This was one of three Kenworth trucks the business traded in for new ones at the dealership. The other two are 2013 Kenworth K200 ‘Big Cabs’ which are also available for purchase.

With 97-tonne GCM, this T909 is suitable for a single or multi-trailer configuration. Designed, engineered and built in Australia, the T909 delivers unrivalled performance in the harshest possible conditions, while providing the driver with a safe and comfortable environment.

This 6x4 configuration T909 has a traditional full-length bonnet and drop-front frame, designed to house a large radiator for superior cooling in the hottest of conditions.

It also features polished aluminium quad square fuel tanks and a long chassis for maximum fuel tank space.

This T909 also has a Groeneveld auto greasing system and Airtec weight scales, LED headlights, alloy bulbar and wheels.

Kenworth’s Electronic Brake Safety Systems (EBSS) further enhance vehicle control and accident avoidance.

Inside the 50-inch sleeper cab, the Daylite door design delivers excellent field of vision from the driver’s seat. The cab features a Viesa cab cooler, double bunks and the wraparound privacy curtain to make rest periods more comfortable. It also features soft plush upholstery in the traditional studded pattern.

The Kenworth premium seats further enhance driver comfort and safety.

The large curved windscreen offers a comfortable view of the road ahead with excellent all-round visibility. A wrap-around instrument panel allows an unobstructed view of gauges and provides easy access to controls. The adjustable steering column features a Kenworth ‘Smart Wheel’ with fingertip controls for important operating functions such as engine brake and cruise control. The overhead console includes two storage compartments with provision for vehicle information displays and radios.

Asking price is $215,000 including GST.
