Thread: So I got a new truck

  1. #1

    Default So I got a new truck

    Couple days ago I came off home time (basicly my days off) to find that a new trainee in the company had misjudged a corner and taken the whole front end off my truck while I was out. While disappointed, because I liked that Truck, it was not the worst deal. I actually got quite an upgrade out of it. While my new truck is one year older, its infinitely nicer.

    I ended up with one of our company "Unicorn" trucks. (There's only like 3 or 4 of them on the company side out of almost 30,000 total company trucks, most of this trucks models went to the lease purchase, which still has a large portion of them on the owner operator side, or got wrecked)

    2014 Kenworth T660 Studio Sleeper.

    This trucks cab is massive, and easily the most comfortable I've driven to date. A standard truck has about a 60"-72" bunk sleeper, these "studio sleeper" trucks have an 86" sleeper which is about 14 inches longer and has roof skylights.

    Most the company has either freightliners or internationals due to how cheap they are very few have kenworths and like I said only 3 or 4 T660 Studio trucks remain in the company fleet the rest of the company KW'S are the newer and smaller T680 aero trucks.

    Due to how expensive these trucks are and how few they have they don't just hand the keys to anyone so I am actually beside myself and flipping ecstatic that they gave me one. Sadly it's coming up on the end of its service life In about 6-10 months, truck has 360,000 miles and the company doesn't keep any truck over 470,000. So hopefully I can talk them into selling it to me, 10 months should be enough to build a decent down payment.

    X2 if the right tools are also well equipped. To most people 14 inches is not something to jump over but when someone is packed into a 72 inch area for so long then upgraded to an 86 inch living space it makes quite a difference. Just over all the two extra cabinets means no more crap on the floor or having to dig under the bunk for "essentials" (diapers) the skylights and side windows add a lot more natural light which will improve mood, All in all the sleepers just very well-set-up. Makes changing far easier which is a God sent as I still have bed wetting issues the diapers are not optional in most cases. The narrow cab may make it slightly difficult to move to the rear cabin but also make everything in the cab accessible from the driver seat. Hell I can reach and operate the passenger window controls with a seatbelt still on from the driver seat.

    I don't think I have ever seen a truck that I Would-be willing To dive headlong into debt for.

    That is awesome man! Saw some renderings online and yeah, the PACCAR boys definitely do sleepers the best. If you're over 6ft that 86" bed must make changing a breeze. Like you said, the overhead locker is perfect for diaper storage. Do you wear all the time or just at night, and do you drive tandem? How's the performance? I know some guys think the MX-13 T660's are a bit pokey, but dead nuts reliable

    This is actually a Cummins ISX 13 equipped truck. It's got an Eaton 8-speed but it's the convertible tailshaft so it can be cheaply swapped over to a 13 speed.

    When I wear depends on stock and conditions. If I'm low I'll only wear at night, if I got plenty I will wear while driving. The only exception is I won't wear if I have to be up moving a lot. Walking don't bother me but the constant climbing up and down takes it's toll on a diaper. But I need to conserve for bed wetting first and foremost.

    Drive tandem?? I think you may be referring to team. To which, no. No I don't run with anyone else. I am a trainer but I will not do training in this truck. Far too nice and the fastest way to turn a new truck into an old truck is to set a trainee behind the wheel. I've already started talking with our company sales team and a few banks as well about starting a purchase agreement in about a year.

    Performance wise it's nice. The 8-speed may not allow for the power band to be fully utilized as most these trucks were built to accommodate 13 and 18 speed trans, but it's quiet, smooth, cab is comfortable, has the smoothest and most fluid shifter I've used. The clutch is to the far left out of the way and the fuel and brake pedals are perfect place to heel toe properly without letting off the pedals, makes for far smoother stops.

    The seat can go back behind the door frame keeping Sun out of my face and other drivers out of my business lol.

    Very much reminds me of when I was learning on my grandfathers Pete 379 and KW W900.

    I've always liked how paccar puts the clutch far out to the left congrats on the KW! What kind of fuel mileage are you averaging with it?
