Peterbilt Motors Company showcased three ready-to-work Model 567 mixer trucks at the 2016 World of Concrete in Las Vegas from Feb. 2-5.
Peterbilt introduced the Model 567 SFFA last year with full production beginning in July. The set-forward front axle configuration provides customers with optimized weight distribution to maximize payloads while helping meet state and federal bridge law requirements. The Model 567 SFFA is ideal for mixer and other weight-conscious applications, according to the company.
The SFFA configuration joins Peterbilt’s Model 567 set-back front axle, the company’s popular vocational truck and tractor. As wtih the set-back axle version, the Model 567 SFFA is available in both 115- and 121-inch BBC lengths. The 115-inch BBC has a bumper to front axle distance of 29 inches and the 121-inch BBC has a bumper to front axle distance of 31 inches.
The three Model 567s that were on display at World of Concrete are powered by PACCAR engines. The Model 567 is standard with the PACCAR MX-13 engine with up to 500 hp and 1,850 lb.-ft. of torque.
Two of the trucks feature the new PACCAR MX-11, a lightweight, fuel efficient 10.8-liter engine with up to 430 hp and 1,550 lb.-ft. of torque, according to the company.
The Model 567 is available as a day cab or with Peterbilt’s complete lineup of detachable sleepers, including the new 58-inch sleeper.
