Kenworth’s tradition of classic styling continues with the T909, but it offers much more than rugged long-bonneted good looks. With the capacity to handle 615 peak horsepower engines, the T909 is versatile enough to operate in almost any application from logging to livestock, pulling a single trailer or a triple road train, where the front axle weight is critical.
Whether in single trailer or multi-trailer road train configuration, on highway or the roughest outback track, the T909 has been designed and built in Australia to deliver unmatched performance in the harshest possible conditions.
