The Braden brand from Paccar Winch has introduced new direct bolt-on utility winch bumper options for Paccar Medium Duty Trucks as part of its UBX20 and PD18 Utility Bumper and Planetary Recovery Winch Systems.
Available now for Kenworth and Peterbilt Aero and Vocational models, the patented designs allow the bumpers to be attached directly to the chassis frame for installation. The newest additions to the UBX20 and PD18 replacement bumper lines for utility fleet applications feature mounting bolt patterns matched specifically to these new Kenworth and Peterbilt Medium Duty models for the Class 5-7 segments: Kenworth T480, T380, T280, and T180, and Peterbilt 548, 537, 536, and 535. There is no need for custom mounting brackets or welding, the company says. Maximum winch line pull ratings are 20,000 pounds.
