Kenworth to Host T300 Chassis Update Seminar on March 2 at NTEA's Work Truck Show

February 24, 2003

Kenworth Truck Company has announced it will review Kenworth T300 enhancements and features during its Chassis Update Seminar on Sunday, March 2, at The Work Truck Show in Atlanta. The Kenworth T300 session is being offered in conjunction with The Work Truck Show, which is sponsored by the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA). The session goes from 3 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. "The science of specifying a truck is constantly evolving," explained Mike Parrish, Kenworth medium duty product marketing manager. "New components and features are continually being offered and they can provide big productivity benefits to our customers. This seminar takes a look at these developments, plus offers key spec'ing tips. It will be an interactive seminar as well - on hand will be Kenworth engineers to help in the presentation and answer technical questions." According to Parrish, Kenworth has added new options which make the T300 even better suited for vocational applications. "Especially in crane, dump and utility applications," Parrish said. "We've added a heavier front-axle option (14,600 pounds) and frame inserts which makes the T300 a true workhorse. In addition, we now offer an air accessory package for trucks spec'ed with hydraulic brakes. We're also discussing exhaust options for Cat's new C7 engines, and we'll delve into driver comfort issues - we recently began offering crew cabs and extended cab options for the T300." In addition to truck spec's, Kenworth will examine new financing programs for body builders available from PACCAR Financial. These programs can be tailored for upfitters' own specific needs to help grow their business. The T300 is available as a straight truck or tractor in a variety of wheelbases, with single or tandem axles, air or hydraulic brakes, in GVWs from 26,000 to 54,000 pounds. Kenworth Truck Company, a division of PACCAR Inc, is a manufacturer of heavy and medium duty trucks. Kenworth's Internet home page is at
