Single-axle Day Cab Rental in Baltimore, MD

Single axle day cab tractors have several components that make them unique. Firstly, the single axle refers to the standard number of a single axle and two sets of tires. The single axle makes these tractors weigh less than their tandem axle counterparts, and the two sets of tires make them more fuel-efficient than tandems as well. The day cab means there is no attached sleeping compartment, which makes these tractors a great choice for short or medium-distance hauls. If your business in Baltimore needs to find a single axle day cab tractor rental for your hauling needs, download the COOP app and join the platform today to find the right option.

Available Single-axle Day Cab Types

Here are some possible variations of Single-axle Day Cab rentals in Baltimore

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.
