Tandem-Axle Day Cab Rental in Columbia, MD

Tandem axle day cabs are built with an additional axle and set of tires, located behind (tandem to) the front set of wheels. 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. The only downside of tandem axle day cabs is that they have lower fuel efficiency and maneuverability than single axle trucks. Day cab tractors do not have a sleeping compartment attached to the cab. If your business in Columbia 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 Columbia

Day Cab Tractor

Because day cab tractors do not have a sleeping compartment attached to the cab, they are typically preferred for a day-long hauling of cargo. The additional axle and tires built into the chassis of a tandem axle tractor allow it to carry heavier loads, which makes them a great option for construction companies who need to move equipment to their project sites. 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 Columbia.

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. These also give the business cost savings since the driver does not have to rent a room for every night of a multiple-day trip.

Diesel Engine

Diesel engines have long been known to be tough, powerful, and dependable. What most people don’t understand is that diesel engines are also far more fuel-efficient than gasoline, as diesel fuel contains more energy in every drop than gasoline does. Because diesel fuel is also cheaper than gasoline, these engines provide a great cost advantage for their drivers.

Electric Engine

Trucking brands are starting to come out with electric engines, as increasing fuel costs have been driving the cost of transportation up for a long time and cutting into the industry’s profits. With one already available from Peterbilt, the trucking industry can expect to see many more appear in the near future. A mistake made by many when thinking about electric engines is that they are not as powerful as diesel or gasoline, while they actually provide more torque than their combustion counterparts.
