Available Tandem-Axle Day Cab Tractor Types

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

Day Cab Tractor

Day cabs are mainly used for daytime local deliveries. Most day cab tractors follow the cab-over-engine design where the engines are located under the hood as opposed to the conventional ones which have nose-like bonnets. This feature gives them high maneuverability because of a tight turning radius. The design also positions the driver close to the windscreen providing better visibility for them.

Sleeper Cab Tractor

A sleeper cab tractor has a sleeper berth area often fitted at the back of the cabin making them suitable for long-distance hauling. They are operationally productive and economical since the driver sleeps inside when night falls during the journey. Some manufacturers customize their sleeper cabs with more homely amenities such as bathrooms, closets, and kitchenettes that can sustain the driver for a week-plus long journey.
