OIL & GAS

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOOD ENOUGH WILL DO. NOT IN OUR WORLD.

In this business, time is money. That’s why Western Star builds oilfield trucks to deliver reliability and durability when you need it most — always. Great cooling packages, durable cabs, great off-highway performance and smart designs that make field repairs easier, so you can get up and going — and making money – faster. From the manueverable 4800 to the extreme duty 6900, Stars have become known as power players in the oil and gas industry.

MUNICIPAL

IF YOU THINK IT LOOKS GOOD NOW, WAIT TILL YOU CHECK ITS ROI IN 10 YEARS.

There are trucks, and there’s the right truck. Western Stars are handbuilt from the ground up to be just that: the right truck. They’re engineered to work, and built for the long haul. No excuses. No complaints. What’s more, Western Star has an entire line of work trucks that can be customized to do whatever you need. With the many configurations available, from dump truck to crane, you can build the right truck to meet the needs of your municipality.

MININGS

SOME TRUCKS DABBLE IN THIS BUSINESS. OURS ARE BRED FOR IT.

Tough doesn’t begin to describe a Western Star mining truck. But it’s a good start. A full line solution for your mine, from the maneuverable 4800 up to the extreme duty 6900, Stars deliver where it really matters: the bottom line. Our trucks are hand- constructed using premium materials and high-quality components. That means they’re not just built to last — they’re purpose-built for your kind of operation.

CONSTRUCTION

SOME KIDS LOVE TO BUILD THINGS. SOME NEVER STOP.

Western Star can relate. That’s why you’ll find an edge with a Western Star construction truck. Each one is handbuilt to your specs, with a heritage of durability and reliability to get the job done. Whether you choose the 4700, 4800, 4900 or 6900, you’ll find options to build the perfect dump, mixer, crane or just about anything else you need. Western Stars work hard and never give in. Just like the people who drive them.

TOWING & RECOVERY

YOU CAN LEND THEM A HAND. AND QUITE A NUMBER OF OTHER FEATURES.

For you, there are only two types of jobs: big and bigger. Make sure your fleet is equipped to handle both. Western Star trucks for Tow & Recovery applications are handbuilt from the get-go with one purpose: getting people — and your bottom line — into better places. The 4700 is our newest addition, but brings all the versatility and reliability you’ve come to expect from us. And if your work demands the most extreme truck available, take a look at the 6900 — the ultimate in towing and recovery vehicles. Or if you need something in between, we have that covered, too. That’s just how Western Star is.

LOGGING

OF ALL THE HAZARDS IN LOGGING, THE SCARIEST ONE IS COMPROMISE.

Logging operations run with demanding schedules and in even more demanding conditions. You need a truck that’ll show up, ready to work, day in and day out. Handbuilt, with thousands of customization options, a Western Star means you get to build the truck you need for the job. You can choose a severe-duty cab and from a variety of heavy-duty truck components including Allison® transmissions, planetary axles and the TufTrac® suspension. After all, you never compromise. Your truck shouldn’t either.

HEAVY HAUL

You never know when you’ll be called to do the impossible. Best to be prepared.

There are big hauls. And then there are your hauls. No matter how heavy, extreme, wide or unusual, you can build a Western Star to take on massive loads. With two base models to choose from, the 4900 or 6900, you’ll be able to handle the most extreme heavy hauls with ease. That’s because Western Star offers the most powerful, heavy-duty engine options from Detroit Diesel® and Cummins®. So no matter what you choose, it means no excuses, and no compromises.

BULK HAUL

Western Star builds trucks with the rarest of instruments. Western Star calls them hands.

Whether you’re in for a week-long trip or an out-and-back day haul, make sure your truck is up to the task. Western Star bulk haul trucks are built to last. Plus you can spec every Western Star truck to be as light as it is tough. Choose from multiple engines, 109″, 110″ or 123″ BBCs and thousands of other options — allowing you to get the dependable truck you need, hand-built to your specifications.

AUTO HAUL

A person’s vehicle is their pride and joy. Sounds familiar.

This is a special kind of haul. Which is why Western Star auto haul trucks are perfect for the job. Whether it’s cars, boats, or something completely different — with the tried and true 4900, and a ton of sleeper and customization options like our ultra low roof sleeper, — you can spec the ultimate hauler for even the most demanding job. Plus, knowing you’re driving the best-built hauler in the business will give both you and your customer peace of mind.
