With a wide assortment of tractors to browse and rent, COOP is an excellent choice if you need to haul a heavy load but do not want to buy your own tractor.

Tandem Axle Tractor
Tandem axle tractors are named for the second axle and set of wheels that are included tandem to the front wheels. That additional axle and set of wheels allow tandem axle tractors to haul heavier loads than a single axle. The additional tires also provide a smoother ride and increased shock absorption but will increase weight and reduce fuel efficiency.
Single Axle Tractor
A single axle tractor only has one axle and two sets of wheels. This makes them lighter and more maneuverable than the tandem axle, but they cannot carry as much weight as the tandem. 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
With a sleeper compartment attached to the cabin, sleeper cab tractors can be cost and time-efficient. This sleeper cab allows the driver to pull over and rest on long-haul trips, rather than needing to find a hotel for every night of a long trip. Different variations of 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 has always been associated with toughness by truckers and non-truckers alike for a very long time. Mack may be the only brand whose logo you will see on t-shirts when far away from truck stops or trucker hangouts because of that dependability that the brand represents. Although their powertrain is known to be able to provide their trucks the ability to handle heavy loads for high mileage that other tractors cannot, technology has also been a leading factor for the Mack tractors remaining on the top five list of US tractors for so long. Mack trucks are also highly customizable, meaning you may have many different choices for options when you choose to rent a Mack tractor on our COOP platforms!

An even more cost-effective strategy is to use the COOP platform to rent sleeper cab tractors for your long-haul needs rather than buying a truck yourself!
