Available Single-Axle Day Cab Tractor Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Single-Axle Day Cab Tractors listed for rent in Baltimore, MD include:

Single Axle Day Cab Tractor

Single axle day cab tractors have a lower maximum cargo weight capacity but greater maneuverability and fuel efficiency than tandem axle cabs. This makes them a great choice for short or medium-distance hauls. If you have a heavy load that needs to be delivered into a congested, urban environment, single axle day cabs also work well there. Whatever you need a single axle day cab rental for, COOP can help you find the right single axle day cab tractor for your business in Baltimore.

Single Axle Sleeper Cab Tractor

With the same weight and maneuverability attributes as the single axle day cab but with a sleeper compartment attached, single axle sleeper cab tractors greatly expand the distance that they can be used for efficiently. The sleeper cab provides the ability for the driver to pull over to sleep rather than renting multiple hotel rooms on cross-country trips, saving time for the driver and money for the company.

Diesel Engine

Diesel engines have long been preferred by the industries that require hard work out of their equipment and vehicles, like the long haul trucking or construction industries. Because diesel fuel produces more energy per drop burned than gasoline, these engines were fuel-efficient many decades before fuel efficiency was an important selling point. While a fuel-efficient Prius may not be able to haul a heavy load, many diesel engines, especially those in tractors, certainly are.

Electric Engine

Electric engines have become far more popular over the past several years due to brands like Tesla and Prius, but their applications in tractors are less known but potentially more beneficial. While they are well known for their fuel efficiency and ability to reduce fuel costs, most don’t know that they also produce more torque than combustion engines because of their design. This provides more power, better acceleration, and lower fuel costs.

Single-Axle Day Cab Tractor Brands

COOP offers multiple brands of rentals in Baltimore, MD, check below for some potential brands for rent depending on availability.

Their innovations over the decades they have been in business have led to the manufacturing of efficient, reliable, safe, and productive tractors, all of which are guaranteed by the company to meet those standards. With the lightest axles in the single axle day cab market, comfortable, spacious cabs for the driver, and an advanced navigation system, it’s not hard to see why Kenworth is such a popular choice.

Volvo
