DEFINING DURABILITY

RUGGED, RELIABLE AND TOUGH

With features primarily designed to provide years of trouble free service, the Kenworth C509 proves itself daily in some of the roughest and toughest environments on earth.

The C509 can be configured for very high GCM in mining and off road applications including remote road train, heavy haulage and mine service operations.

Supreme performance, comfort and safety come together in the C509, one of the most durable trucks on or off the road.

C509 — Defining reliability and durability.

Welcome to our Business Class interior, designed to deliver maximum driver confidence, with comfort and control in perfect harmony.

COMFORT AND CONTROL

Classic styling has been teamed with the highest standards of quality and safety in our cab design.

The large one-piece curved windscreen offers a commanding view of the road ahead with excellent all round visibility.

An unobstructed view of gauges and easy access to vital switches and controls are provided by the cleverly designed wrap around dash, enhancing driver comfort and minimising fatigue.

Convenient storage, contemporary trim, privacy curtain, a range of seat options and “Smart Wheel” fingertip access for engine brake and cruise functions, all deliver further driver confidence, comfort and control.

Kenworths work harder for longer, because they are purpose designed for their intended task, then manufactured to those exacting specifications with uncompromising quality, at our world-class production facility in Bayswater, Victoria.

We look carefully at your specific application and performance requirements and engineer the best possible combination of

chassis, engine, transmission and drivelines from our extensive range of options.

Through Application Engineering at the design/ specification phase, the features and benefits that best meet your needs can be included at the factory level as an integrated solution, delivering enhanced productivity, durability, reliability and safety.
