Tandem Axle Tractor
Slightly different from the standard tractor, a tandem axle has a second axle and set of wheels located directly behind (tandem to) the front axle and wheels. By having an additional axle and set of wheels, tandem axle tractors can haul heavier loads than a single axle. The second set of tires also provides a smoother ride and increased shock absorption, but also adds weight and reduces fuel efficiency.
Single Axle Tractor
There are only the standard two sets of wheels and one axle on a single axle tractor, making them lighter and more maneuverable than the tandem axle. 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
Sleeper cab tractors can increase both time and cost efficiency, as they have a sleeper cab attached to the cabin. The driver can use this sleeper cab to pull over and rest on long-haul trips, rather than needing to find a hotel for every night of a long trip. Some 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.

The Mack brand of tractors may be the most recognizable brand in the world by both drivers and non-drivers. Owned by the same parent company like Volvo, Mack trucks are always associated with toughness and dependability, but non-Mack owners may not know that their technological innovations are also an important part of the company’s popularity with truckers. The Mack powertrain was born through a relentless dedication to building trucks that could haul heavy loads while withstanding the brutal mileage of long-haul trips. Mack trucks are also highly customizable, meaning you may have many different choices for options when you choose to rent a Mack tractor on the COOP app!
