Kenworth’s tradition of classic styling continues with the T909, but it offers much more than rugged long-bonneted good looks.
The T909 is versatile enough to operate in almost any application from logging to livestock, pulling a single trailer or a triple road train, where the front axle weight is critical. Whether in single trailer or multi-trailer road train configuration, on highway or the roughest outback track, the T909 has been designed and built in Australia to deliver unmatched performance in the harshest possible conditions.

Classic styling has been teamed with the highest standards of driver comfort and safety in the T909 cab design. The large one-piece curved windscreen offers a commanding view of the road ahead with excellent all round visibility.
Two-piece windscreens are available as an option for those that prefer the traditional look. Daylite doors with drop-down glass sections deliver added sideways vision and safety. 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.
The T909 is available with various integrated and modular sleeper options that offer superb levels of accommodation comfort.
We look carefully at your specific application and performance requirements and engineer the best possible combination of chassis, engine, transmission and driveline. Through Application Engineering at the design/specification phase, the features and benefits that best meet your needs can be built in at the factory level as an integrated solution, delivering life-long performance and reliability.
For example, for dangerous goods and flammable liquids haulage we build the vehicle to make it easier to comply with fuel haul requirements, using only the finest quality materials.
Rear Axle Suspensions
All Kenworth suspensions are of the highest quality with proven performance and reliability.

For mining, roadtrain and some off highway applications Kenworth offer the tough durable and low maintenance six-rod Kenworth KW6-60A suspension, renowned for its legendary longevity in the toughest conditions.
Safety is built into every T909 through Application Engineering, a design approach that also delivers optimal payloads, reliability and productivity. With the addition of Kenworth Electronic Brake Safety Systems (EBSS) the result is not only safety and proven productivity gains through being engineered to application, but enhanced accident avoidance from the comprehensive list of EBSS options available.
