Available Single-Axle Day Cab Tractor Types

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

Sleeper Cab Tractor

These types of tractors have a sleeper cab area where the driver or crew can sleep or rest after long hours of driving. Different truck-manufacturing companies customize these tractors with sleeper cabs of different sizes. Single axle tractors with a sleeper cab are very common in businesses with heavy hauling needs.

Day Cab Tractor

This type of single axle tractor is made to maximize comfort in the cab area. Since they don’t have a sleeper compartment, day cab tractors are used for daytime deliveries. They are also fuel-efficient since they lack additional amenities that add to fuel use. Some of them have rear windows for all direction visibility which adds to their usability, especially in urban centers.

Electric-powered Single Axle Tractors

This is a single axle tractor built with regenerative braking which prevents wear. This feature also gives additional power to launch hence decreasing fuel consumption by up to 15%. When the tractor is going downhill, the axle powers the generator which then stores the generated electric power in the ion battery.  The disadvantage of this tractor is that weight is increased by 400-500 pounds.
