Peterbilt has added the Paccar 20,000- and 22,000-pound wide track steer axles to its vocational lineup, the company announced.

The Paccar steer axle is available with standard front air disc brakes or optional drum brakes as well as suspensions and wheel end options to meet the application’s demands. Both axle ratings will be available in the Models 567, 520, 389, 367, 365, 348, and the 389 glider kit.

The axle is designed for demanding vocational applications such as refuse, construction, and heavy-haul, featuring a combination of weight savings technology and durability. The steer axle is also designed for high maneuverability with a turn angle of up to 50 degrees.

“The Paccar steer axle continues the Peterbilt tradition of innovative and rugged products for our vocational customers who demand maximum performance,” says Kyle Quinn, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar senior vice president. “Whether we’re reducing total cost of ownership or increasing payload, Peterbilt is continuously looking for solutions that maximize our customers’ uptime and profitability.”
