KIRKLAND, Wash. February 19, 2009 There is an old saying that the job isn™t finished until the paperwork is done. Kenworth is making that job a bit easier thanks to an optional workstation now available for its T660, T800, W900 and C500 models in day cab and extended day cab configurations.
Located between the driver and passenger seats, the workstation offers nearly 2 cubic feet of space for storage of files, books, small printers and laptops. When opened, paperwork can be completed on a 140-square inch writing surface. When closed, the 100-square-inch top hosts a cup holder, and a pencil tray. Two 12-volt accessory power outlets are built-in to provide power for computers and other devices.
The workstation is yet another Kenworth option available to help drivers become more productive and comfortable in their Kenworth Class 8 trucks,â€ said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales. This option has already been very popular for Kenworth T170, T270 and T370 medium duty trucks, and we expect it also will do well with Kenworth Class 8 models.â€
