Available Tractor Types

On the COOP platform, common variations of Tractors listed for rent in Columbia, MD include:

Tandem Axle Tractor

Tandem axle tractors are named for the second axle and set of wheels that are included tandem to the front wheels. That additional axle and set of wheels allow tandem axle tractors to haul heavier loads than a single axle. The additional tires also provide a smoother ride and increased shock absorption but will increase weight and reduce fuel efficiency.

Single Axle Tractor

A single axle tractor only has one axle and two sets of wheels. This makes them lighter and more maneuverable than the tandem axle, but they cannot carry as much weight as the tandem. As a tradeoff, they are also more fuel-efficient, saving you money on long-haul trips where every gallon of fuel matters.

Sleeper Cab Tractor

With a sleeper compartment attached to the cabin, sleeper cab tractors can be cost and time-efficient. This sleeper cab allows the driver to pull over and rest on long-haul trips, rather than needing to find a hotel for every night of a long trip. Different variations of sleeper cabs even come with restrooms and other amenities, making for a very comfortable driving experience. Sleeper cab tractors are typically used for long-haul trips but can be used for daily hauling and deliveries as well.

Tractor Brands

As one of the most popular tractor brands on the planet, their tractors are preferred by drivers all around the globe for their powerful yet fuel-efficient engines. In addition, a great driver experience has made Freightliner extremely well-regarded among drivers and tractor enthusiasts alike.

Volvo

As a company that has been manufacturing for the transportation industry since 1928, Volvo has the experience and reputation that is hard to beat. Their reputation is so great, in fact, that they can charge higher prices for their models than similar competitors based solely on that reputation. As the second highest-selling tractor manufacturer in the world, their commitment to safety and innovations in the driver experience has led this brand to be favored by truckers all over the world.

International

As a leading global producer of vehicles for all duty and cargo types, International trucks are some of the best that a driver could ask for. International tractors are known worldwide for an unwavering commitment to excellence, and many of their tractors come with the option of International or Cummins brand engines. The Lonestar tractor from International has a unique aerodynamic design that provides optimum fuel efficiency, along with International brand quality and reliability.

Mack

The Mack brand has always been associated with toughness by truckers and non-truckers alike for a very long time. Mack may be the only brand whose logo you will see on t-shirts when far away from truck stops or trucker hangouts because of that dependability that the brand represents. Although their powertrain is known to be able to provide their trucks the ability to handle heavy loads for high mileage that other tractors cannot, technology has also been a leading factor for the Mack tractors remaining on the top five list of US tractors for so long. Mack trucks are also highly customizable, meaning you may have many different choices for options when you choose to rent a Mack tractor on our COOP platforms!
