Test-driving Kenworth’s T680 with integrated 52-inch sleeper
By David A. Kolman
When Kenworth offered me the opportunity to put its T680 tractor with the new 52-inch integrated sleeper through its paces, I jumped at the chance.
It was one OF those early evenings made for trucking. The sky was clear blue. The air was crisp. My dispatch was an eight-hour round trip drop and hook. No fingerprinting freight for a change.
I’ve been on a quest for a good many years now, as you regular Road King readers are aware. For those who aren’t, my pursuit has been to find an affordable, reasonable-looking, used cabover tractor. It will be my project truck.
As you regular readers of my Road King columns and blogs know, I love cabover-over-engine (COE) tractors. I’ve been a cabover devotee ever since I spied my first one as a young child. Hence my nickname: Cabover.
