Good morning Western Star Nation. It’s wild Western Star Wednesday so let’s get pumped up ….Western Star style.
Check out how Schwing concrete pumpers have made changes to adapt to the conventional cab chassis on this Western Star 4800 SB. This hard-working truck splashed with Omaha orange paint sports a 410HP Detroit Diesel DD13 super slugger bolted to an Allison 4500 series transmission. That combo turns over a set of Meritor 46K double lockers floating on a 20K flat leaf front axle, a 13K pusher, and Hendrickson Haulmax 46K rear suspensions. Bendix disc brakes are on all 4 corners to ensure this workhorse can stop at every job site.
Thanks to Les Yoder from Jenkins Diesel Power Inc. in Springfield, MO for sharing this “Pumped up” Western Star!
