History[edit]

The PayStar was introduced by International Harvester in January 1972, as a construction-specific versions of the conventional Transtar.

From 1972 through 1980 the Paystar was offered in two ranges, the 5050 with mid-range engines, and the 5070 with heavy duty engines. Available as 4×4, 6×4, and 6×6 [a], they were usually straight trucks, most offered trailer brake options. Semi-tractors were also available, the F5070 had a Gross Combination Weight Rating[b] of up to 120,000 lb (54,000 kg).

By 2013 the PayStar was normally a semi-tractor, although straight truck applications were still offered. Severe service straight truck applications were handled by the Workstar series, which offered no semi-tractors. In 2013 the PayStar is only offered as a 6×4 or 8×6 with high horsepower engines.
