C510 - DEPENDABLE STRENGTH
Developed to meet the needs of mine haul operations, the C510 is an off-highway truck, incorporating a 19 litre engine (600 hp/1950 lb-ft of torque) with manual transmission and a cooling capacity, which comfortably exceeds the 50ºC ambient temperatures experienced in the remote mines of Australia. A higher cab, larger radiator core and hydraulic fan drive are all part of this Australian designed package. It’s The benchmark for all heavy-haul tractor units.

Custom engineering allows each truck to be optioned to best suit its application. High tensile steel chassis rails offer a straight continuous channel and are custom detailed to suit your needs. Engineering steel, aluminium and fibreglass into one, the cab is one of the lightest and toughest cabs built and its riveted construction is easily repaired, with steel reinforcements in high stress areas. Optimisation of drive train components enables higher durability and lower fuel consumption within the appropriate operating constraints.
SUPREME DRIVER COMFORT
In a C510, drivers can meet demanding performance levels with the highest standards of comfort. Kenworth cabs are ergonomically designed, roomy and easily maintained. Heavy duty closed cell insulation minimises road noise throughout the cab and all controls, switches and instruments fall easily to hand or eye, optimising driver concentration and minimising fatigue. With a high level of standard equipment and extensive options, the best in driver performance is comfortably achieved.
SURE FOOTED AGILITY
The agility and strength of the C510 has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout Australia in some of the toughest and most testing environments.
The C510 is available in a 6×4 hub reduction tandem-drive or a 8×6 hub reduction tri-drive. The front axle is set forward, with integral power steering mounted ahead allowing maximum steering angles, and better weight distribution, on or off-road. Engineered and built using the best components – the C510’s strength, durability and reliability results in low maintenance costs and more time on the job.
