Kenworth Medium Duty Trucks Add Factory-Installed Front Frame Brackets for Winch Bumper
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., March 8, 2011 – Kenworth Truck Company will add durable, factory-installed, front frame brackets for easy winch bumper installation on Kenworth T270 and T370 trucks. The announcement was made in conjunction with The Work Truck Show this week in Indianapolis.

The Kenworth front frame bracket package will provide strength for downward loads as great as 8,500 lbs. for a boom rest or cab guard, and up to 16,000 lbs. in the upward direction for outriggers. This frame package can help reduce customer upfit cost, and is compatible with popular bumpers used by winch customers.

“Kenworth’s new front frame bracket package especially targets utility and municipal customers that choose to operate Kenworth medium duty winch trucks,” said Doug Powell, Kenworth medium duty marketing manager. “With this product addition, we’ve standardized and simplified the installation of specialty bumpers commonly used in the fire and emergency vehicle markets.  This package will further enhance the value of our T270 and T370 4x4 models introduced in 2010.”
