Tandem-Axle Day Cab Rental in Baltimore, MD

When you need to haul a heavy load and want a more comfortable ride, a tandem axle day cab is the way to go. The extra axle and set of tires on the road provide for better shock absorption than single axle models, and they also allow tandem axles to carry much heavier loads. As a downside, they have lower fuel efficiency and maneuverability than single axle trucks. Day cab means that these tractors do not have a sleeping compartment attached to the cab. If your business in Baltimore needs a tandem axle day cab rental for your needs, download the COOP app today to find one just for you!

Available Tandem-Axle Day Cab Types

Here are some possible variations of Tandem-Axle Day Cab rentals in Baltimore

Day Cab Tractor

Tandem axle day cabs are typically used when a heavy load needs to be hauled a short or medium distance, such as to or from a construction site, across town, or out of the city. The additional axle and tires built into the chassis of a tandem axle tractor allow it to carry heavier loads and give a smoother ride at high speeds, making them the only option for certain weight requirements. Whether you are looking for a single day tractor rental for a landscaping job or a weeklong rental for a construction or remodeling project, COOP can help you find the right tandem axle day cab tractor for your business in Baltimore.

Sleeper Cab Tractor

Sleeper cab tandem axle tractors have the benefit of the tandem axle to carry heavier loads and give a smoother ride, with the added benefit of a sleeping compartment for the driver to rest. The sleeper cab gives the driver the ability to be more efficient with time by pulling over to sleep when they need to. These also give the business cost savings since the driver does not have to rent a room for every night of multiple day trips.

Diesel Engine

While diesel engines are known by many to be more powerful than their gasoline counterparts, what most people do not realize is that diesel engines are also more fuel-efficient. Because diesel fuel produces more energy per drop than gasoline, these engines have long been the more fuel-efficient choice than their gasoline combustion competitors. Because diesel fuel is also cheaper than gasoline, these engines provide a great cost advantage for their drivers.

Electric Engine

With the cost of fuel rising over time, many customers and brands have been looking into electric engines for a more cost-effective mode of transportation. The trucking industry is no different, with several different brands having models on the market already with electric engines. A mistake made by many when thinking about electric engines is that they are not as powerful as diesel or gasoline, but in fact, they actually provide more torque than their combustion counterparts.
