Peterbilt to showcase Model 567 vocational trucks
Peterbilt Motors Company will feature its new all-purpose vocational Model 567 and several other vehicles during World of Concrete from Jan. 21-24, 2013 in Las Vegas.
“Customer reception of the all-new Model 567, which went into full production a few weeks ago, has been overwhelmingly positive. This lightweight, highly versatile vocational vehicle is an ideal fit for the concrete markets and we’re excited to showcase it at World of Concrete,” says Robert Woodall, Peterbilt director of sales and marketing. “This truck and tractor meets a concrete contractor’s every vehicle requirement, from mixing plant to jobsite.
“The Model 567 can be ordered in 121- and 115-in. BBC lengths with a wide variety of heavy-duty components and axle configurations for increased payloads and optimized weight distribution,” Woodall adds. “It has a set-back front axle that provides excellent maneuverability and a tight turning radius. Combined with the panoramic view from the cab, drivers will enjoy enhanced visibility and productivity throughout virtually every operating condition.”
The Model 567 is standard with the Paccar MX-13 Engine with up to 500 horsepower and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque and can be ordered as a day cab or with Peterbilt’s complete line-up of detachable sleepers.
Also on display will be Peterbilt’s low-cab forward Model 320 equipped with a concrete pumper and a Model 357 with a mixer body and a Paccar PX-9 Engine, the company says..
“We’re excited World of Concrete attendees will have the opportunity to see these great new products firsthand,” says Woodall. “Of course, Peterbilt representatives will be on-hand throughout the show to explain features and benefits and answer any questions attendees may have.”
The World of Concrete show will be held from Jan. 21-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
