This impressive rig fires up with a Detroit DD13 470HP engine, thrusting an 8LL gear box to mesh the 46K Meritor axles. This all rides smoothly on 20K front springs and 46K AirLiner rear suspension. The 4500-gallon propane tank and equipment travel the back roads of Iowa on the 232” WB and 130” O/H, making deliveries to homes and businesses in need of propane throughout the state.
The 4700SB, or set-back axle, is one of the best trucks on the market for reliable, heavy-duty hauling. With its available Eaton Fuller 10-, 11-, 13-, 15- and 18-speed transmission and a wheelbase of up to 300″, this highway monster always delivers the goods on time. And with a WABCO 4S/4M and 6S/6M ABS and roll stability control, it’s also one of the safest rides out there.
Check out that Viper Blue Pearl paint sure looks great with the chrome. Nobody’s going to miss this shiny propane rig blazing down the highway.
