International WorkStar


Brains and Brawn


Just because the job is demanding, doesn’t mean the work has to be. On the outside, the International® WorkStar® brings all the muscle to the roughest environments. Inside, its large, comfortable cab offers drivers high-visibility and operability to expertly tame even the most grueling of worksites.


When the job takes you 50 feet into the air, you need a truck that will keep you well grounded. With an exceptional range of power, axle and cab configurations, plus integrated Diamond Logic® system controls, an International® WorkStar® puts all the features you need well within reach.

Heavy Haul

When hauling heavy loads, there’s no room for second guessing. With its broad range of proven and reliable powertrain options, durable single and double-frame rail offerings and a rugged wide track front axle with up to a 50-degree wheel turn angle, confidence comes standard with every WorkStar®


You, better than anyone, know a structure is only as good as its foundation. That’s why every WorkStar® is built on a huck-bolted frame and cross-member system to deliver maximum vocational durability and a number of frame-rail options, all designed to withstand even the harshest of job site conditions.

Streets & Sanitation

In the refuse business, there’s no room for a throwaway rig. So we packed the WorkStar® with high-durability features proven to stand up to rigors of the job, together with driver-centric comforts and controls for a smooth ride and easy operability along every route.

Fire & Emergency

Being prepared for everything, means being ready for anything. When the call comes, the WorkStar® is there with all-wheel drive performance and robust power to take you where other trucks can’t go, plus Diamond Logic® programmable safety features to automatically protect equipment and ensure years of reliable service.


Supplying your customers with essential utilities is no small feat. Which is why the International® WorkStar® is no small truck. Maximum durability and all-wheel-drive mobility take you anywhere you need to go. While a spacious, quiet cab and ergonomic controls make it comfortable to get there.

Proven Power.

From the trusted performance of the Cummins ISL9 to the beefy durability of the Navistar N9 and N10 and on to the big bore muscle of the N13, the WorkStar® offers the right engine for any configuration and for every job.


A Lightweight Heavyweight.

With its single-frame rail system, you'll enjoy a responsive lighter weight chassis that still delivers a high strength-to-weight ratio plus easier chassis modifications.

Higher Power.

With available radiator placement above the frame rails, you get a cooling system that accommodates uninterrupted front engine power takeoff (FEPTO) for maximum ground clearance and durability in both on- and off-road environments.

Extend Your Capabilities.

A single-frame rail system, including a 3.35 rbm single frame rail that gives multiple options.  Available front frame extensions easily modify your application, moving the bumper forward for mounting pumps, winches and other equipment.

Corrosion Resistant Cab.

Built to last, a five-step paint process helps prevent cab corrosion and fading. Own your truck with confidence with a 12-month unlimited-mile warranty for paint and a 60-month unlimited-mile warranty for cab corrosion.

Optimum Chassis Strength.

Give it all you’ve got; this truck can take it. A nearly indestructible huck-bolted chassis boasts greater clamping load that won’t loosen under pressure. Meaning more time on the job and less time in the shop.

Driver Satisfaction

Any Extreme. Any Time.

Year-round jobs demand year round performance. Clear sightlines offer improved visibility in harsh environments. Available heated windshields prevent snow and ice accumulation on wipers and cowl.

Off Road. On Site.

Standard set-forward and set-back axle configurations give you up to 50-degree wheel cut for maximum maneuverability both on the street and in rugged environments.

See More. Do More.

Easily navigate job sites with best-in-class visibility from an available sloped hood (not available with FEPTO placement). Improved sightlines offer confidence and better maneuverability.


Electronic Stability Control.

Available electronic stability control ensures HX® Series vehicles maintain steadiness and steerability during heavy brake applications and braking on slippery surfaces. Providing drivers with improved safety and greater confidence behind the wheel.

Air Disc Brakes.

An available option for both front and rear applications, air disc brakes provide shorter, surer stops, better braking feel and more braking power for improved safety. All while offering longer lining and rotor life and requiring less maintenance.

Bendix® Wingman® Advanced.

An option on select WorkStar® vehicles, Bendix® Wingman® Advanced combines collision mitigation and stability technologies that are designed to assist drivers in rollover, collision and loss-of-control situations.
