Western Star today introduced the newest addition to its purpose-built vocational line-up, the all-new Western Star 47X. The truck complements the Western Star 49X to establish the Western Star X-Series and extend the platform’s reach into entirely new vocational applications. With a standard 111.6" BBC, the 47X is well suited to regions or applications that require a shorter overall vehicle length, such as drywall trucks, and for those that need to meet federal or local bridge law requirements, such as mixers or super dumps, an optional 110.8" BBC. With the shorter hood and a wheel cut up to 50 degrees, the 47X further optimizes maneuverability for work on construction sites or operation in congested urban environments.
