Western Star 6900 XD HET

Notes: Western Starís 6900 XD HET (Heavy Equipment Transporter) is a semi-tractor based upon Western Starís heavy off-road civilian truck range. It is a conventional-layout semi-tractor, resembling many civilian designs, with the engine up front under a hood and of all-steel construction. The standard cab layout is a driver and two passengers, but versions exist which allow four extra passengers or a sleeper cab. Transmissions are normally manual, but automatic transmission is available. The suspension is 6x6 with single tires up front and double tires on the rear two axles; the tires have a central tire inflation system. The truck has a spare tire at the rear of the cab as well as two recovery winches with a capacity of 25 tons each.

Western Star was acquired by Freightliner (a part of Daimler/Chrysler) in 2000. Production of Western Starís trucks was transferred to Freightlinerís Oregon plant in 2002, though this truck is still used only by Australia.
