We are pleased to bring you our second release of the year on the 1/34 scale Kenworth T880 cab/chassis. This second version replicates Kenworth’s set-forward front axle configuration, better known as the Kenworth T880S.

This new configuration was specifically designed for fleet and truck operators in ready-mix, dump and mobile crane applications where every pound of payload delivered contributes direct to the bottom line, and where outstanding maneuverability and visibility are valued.

In addition, when payload requirements demand a bridge-law compliant wheelbase, the Kenworth T880S delivers more flexibility and operating advantages than other trucks in its class. Available with a 114-inch BBC (bumper to back of cab) and best-in-class 28-inch bumper setting, tare weight is minimized, weight distribution is optimized, and federal bridge formulas can easily be met to stay under the 40-foot length limit when utilized with a mixer body application.

The Kenworth T880S with set-forward front axle can accommodate single, tandem or tridem axle drives.  A variety of factory-installed lift axles are among a wide range of options available to meet the needs of even the most demanding jobsite requirements. Both the T880 and T880S provide clear back-of-cab options that make it easy to configure a variety of truck bodies, handle extreme loads, and allow for easy body upfitting.

The T880S has excellent visibility designed with a lower hood crown than its predecessors providing up to four feet of additional ground visibility. The 5-piece hood is made of a lightweight high-tech material, tougher and more durable than fiberglass.  If damaged, the bolt-on fenders can be replaced in less than two hours to help maximize uptime and get the truck back on the road.

Under the hood, the Kenworth T880S comes standard with the 12.9-liter PACCAR MX-13 engine that has up to 500-hp and 1,850 lb-ft of torque. Inside the cab there is a state-of-the-art control center that caters to every driver’s needs with an ergonomically designed and fully adjustable seat to ensure maximized comfort.

Our 1/34 scale Kenworth T880S cab/chassis is being paired with our McNeilus Bridgemaster Mixer to make one amazing replica. This new model combination features the authentic design of the new Kenworth T880S with accurately detailed cab interior, rotating mixer drum, flip-down tag axle, poseable chute with chute extensions, and detailed undercarriage with full drive-train details. This model features various chrome-plated accessories including grille, front bumper, exhaust stack, steps, fuel tanks and more! This impressive collectible measures approximately 14.75” long by 3.5” wide by 4.5” high and is constructed from more than 250 component parts!

We trust this outstanding replica will make its way into your collection soon!
