C540 - TOUGH MINING RESOURCE

With a requirement to meet the demands of off-highway operators in the mining sector, Kenworth has designed and manufactured it’s biggest ever prime mover, the C540. Capable of handling extreme heavy-duty workloads in harsh operating conditions, the C540 in conjunction with powered trailers, has the capacity to gross 500 tonne and within the range of options available, can be custom engineered to suit its application and conditions.

The C540 mining truck, in conjunction with powered trailers, has the capacity to gross 500 tonnes; the power to pull up a six to eight per cent gradient; the gearing to cruise at 70 kph for distances up to 100 kilometres on the flat, and the durability to do it all day, every day.

SITE SPECIFIC

STRENGTH DURABILITY RELIABILITY

The C540 is available in one basic arrangement: 3.3m wide for use on mine haul roads. Drive axle ratio and engine ratings options allow the C540 to be configured to suit specific haul tasks.

As each Kenworth C540 is custom engineered, within the range of optional equipment, specific vehicle characteristics vary. The operational variables due to site condition, route profile and duty cycle factors all influence the detailed specifications and operation weights.

SUPREME DRIVER COMFORT

The C540 cab is ergonomically designed, roomy and easily maintained. Heavy duty closed cell insulation minimises road noise throughout the cab and all controls, switches and instruments fall easily to hand or eye, optimising driver concentration and minimising fatigue. With a high level of standard equipment and extensive options, the best in driver performance is comfortably achieved. A ‘data pod’ at the rear of the cab provides extra space for modern telematics.

DRIVELINE

DRIVLINE DYNAMICS

The C540 has been developed from the successful and durable C510 platform to accommodate the Cummins QSK19 LTA series 19 litre engine installed with the Allison H6610 6 speed automatic transmission. The drive train package provides performance and durability, primarily in heavy haul mine road train applications. The QSK19 LTA engine uses separate cores for the engine water jacket and the air-to-water aftercooler. This dual radiator combination significantly increases the airflow required for cooling. The transmission has its own cooling package, similar in design to the main engine system, located at the rear of the cab to dissipate the transmission torque convertor or retarder heat loads. The transmission has the ability to cope with the requirement for maximum torque fast changes on the up grades, extended hydraulic retarder braking on the down grades and cruising on the flat.
