Product Review :Kenworth T359


Reliability, Durability, Productivity
Kenworth is arguably one of the most well-known names in trucks, both within the industry and the broader community. It’s a badge which has a well-earned pedigree for durability, reliability and for operators, the all-important, productivity!
With the T359 Kenworth has delivered the ideal solution to suit many trucking applications with a tight turning circle, a short ‘bumper to back of cab’ and a range of axle configurations.
Facts and Features
The Kenworth 359 is available in 4×2, 6×4, 8×4 and 10×4 axle configurations.
The 359 model comes with Eaton FR9210B manual transmission as standard and the 359A with the Allison 3500P as standard with several other options available.
For a bonneted truck, the T359 has exceptional manoeuvrability, especially in locations where access is difficult or negotiating tight spaces is a daily necessity.
Operator safety is paramount with full suite of the optional Kenworth Electronic Brake Safety Systems available including the Electronic Stability Program. A feature of particular importance for applications such as agitators to minimise possibility of roll over if negative circumstances present.
Purpose Built for Productivity
While purpose-built primarily for metro and interstate usage, the T359 has the versatility to adapt as a prime mover, an agitator, car carrier, rigid truck and other applications.
