Hire a 44 tonne tractor unit (6 x 2 ) with a sleeper cab, ideally suited to high payload distribution work including shipping containers, with the option for the driver to rest during journeys if required to do so.
The 3 axle (6 x 2) tractor unit has a mid "lift axle" that can be lifted off the ground using hydraulics, to save fuel and tyre-wear when running empty or part-loaded.
Why hire a 6 x 2 tractor unit as opposed to a 6 x 2 rigid truck ? (one that isn't towing a trailer)
Both trucks have 6 wheels on the ground and both can suspend two wheels when traveling light.
The benefit of hiring a tractor unit is the additional weight allowed by the number of axles on the trailer it is pulling.
Trailers can have one, two or three axles (and some with more axles for specialist requirements). Each additional axle on a trailer increases the GTW (Gross train weight) which is the weight of the tractor unit and the trailer and the load.
If the trailer has three axles when combined with a 6 x 2 tractor unit, it increases the total weight by an extra 4 tonnes to 44 compared with a 6 x 2 rigid truck GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) of 40 tonnes.
The 44T tractor unit is business hire only and driver must hold a valid operator‘s licence.
