Single-axle Day Cab Rental in Columbia, MD

Single axle day cabs are what most people may see as a standard tractor. With their single axle and two sets of wheels that vehicles are typically known to have, they weigh less than their tandem axle counterparts. Additionally, this design makes them more maneuverable than tandem axles, and they also weigh less which gives them better fuel economy. On the downside, single axle tractors cannot haul as heavy cargo as tandem axle trailers can. 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 Columbia needs to find a single axle day cab 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 Columbia

Single Axle Day Cab Tractor

Single axle day cab tractors weigh less than sleeper cab or tandem axle tractors, which makes them more fuel-efficient, especially on long haul trips. Because they do not have a sleeper compartment, these tractors are typically preferred for short to medium-haul trips. 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 Columbia.

Single Axle Sleeper Cab Tractor

A single axle sleeper cab tractor will weigh slightly more than a day cab, but provide enormous benefit for long haul trips in that the attached sleeping compartment provides a place for the driver to rest when needed. This saves both time and money by using the compartment to sleep rather than renting multiple hotel rooms on cross-country trips.

Diesel Engine

Known for being tough and dependable, 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. Diesel fuel also contains more energy per drop burned than gasoline, meaning that diesel engines were fuel-efficient long 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, are built for it.

Electric Engine

As the cost of fuel has continued to rise over the years, more and more companies and consumers alike have begun to see the benefits of electric engines. Not only do they reduce fuel costs by getting rid of the combustion engine, but electric engines also produce more torque than gasoline or even diesel engines.
