This 6900XD heavy haul tractor comes to us from Crows Truck Service in Memphis, TN . It’s the very definition of custom built. With a powertrain like this, it’ll pull loads others wouldn’t even try.
The 6900XD spec’d as a tractor like this one can easily haul up to 500,000 pounds. You’ll see them in heavy haul situations, logging and anywhere else you need a badass truck like this to get things done. And for that, we’re big fans of this one that really puts the XD in Extreme Duty.
Here are the details:
- 550hp Cummins ISX bolted to a Allison 4700 transmission
- Short drive-shaft to a Spicer 4 speed auxiliary transmission
- Sisu 70K rear axles
- 21,000 front, 20,000 pusher and 60,000 Neway rear suspension
- Triple rail stretched across a 296″ wheelbase
- Klam magnetic driveline retarder mounted between the auxiliary transmission and rear axle
- Cummins engine brake
A couple of different angels to fully appreciate this hard-working truck:
Now the 6900XD, just like all Western Star trucks, is hand-built so you really have a lot of options depending on what the job is for each truck.
