It is coming soon: The Western Star 47X! This truck touts many of the best qualities of the 49X by Western Star, along with features designed for concrete mixers and other vocational trucks. It’s made to haul lightweight equipment while complying with bridge laws.
Discover some of the most impressive features of the Western Star 47X.
Shorter and Lighter
At 111.6 inches BBC, the Western Star 47X has a shorter hood than the 49X. Furthermore, the 47X is 200 pounds lighter, and its cast aluminum cross members provide strength and durability without adding to its weight.
Wheel-Base Configuration Options:
Up to 415 inches (set-forward steer axle)
Up to 361 inches (set-back axle)
The design of these Western Star vocational trucks minimizes errors in the assembly stage, and Pre-punched holes decrease assembly time. The truck is assembled correctly, delivered, and ready for the road!
The QuickFit Interface System
The QuickFit Interface efficiently controls electrical functions and is easily accessible at the back of the cab. The Flex Panel design is in the dashboard, creating more space between the seats. Gauges, RAM mount prep, and more can be added to the Flex Panel, tailoring it to a customer’s needs.
The QuickFit Interface System and the CHEC system are tools giving customers the power to make parameter adjustments and perform other electrical configurations in a timely way.
