All three models now feature engines that comply with the new 2007 EPA standards.
Each model also offers new features and options.

The W900S mixer's new front-end design provides 4 additional degrees of wheel cut for tighter turning. It also can be ordered with an extended day cab that provides more storage and driver comfort.
The T300 dump truck boasts a heavy-duty chassis, and now features the new PACCAR PX-8 medium-duty engine, which meets the 2007 EPA standards.
