Benefits of Terminal Tractor Features

Since they perform a specialized function, terminal tractors are constructed differently from their conventional cousins. From the inside to the outside, a terminal tractor’s design benefits your business in ways some other vehicles can’t:

Enhanced Worker Safety

As with operating any working vehicle, operators must meet OSHA requirements for using a terminal tractor. To help reduce the risk of injury on the job even further, the design of a terminal tractor enhances safe operations:

  • Most terminal trailers feature robust bumpers for better driver shielding during a collision.
  • Roomier cab and doors allow operators to enter and exit the vehicle more safely to adjust semitrailers. This also provides easier ingress/egress for the driver, reducing the risk of physical injury.
  • Reinforced steel cabs protect drivers during potentially hazardous jobs.
  • Strategically placed, oversized mirrors allow better rear visibility for reduced risk of collision. (Some models even feature heated and moisturized mirrors to enhance visibility.)
  • Wraparound windshield offers the operator a 360-degree view.

Operating Efficiency

Quality terminal trucks also have features that increase performance speed and efficiency, saving you time and money on the floor:

  • The enhanced hydraulics system increases productivity by improving the truck’s operation.
  • Durable exterior muffler protectors provide a shield against damage to expensive components.
  • Oversized cab and side door provide easy access to perform service and maintenance.
  • A reinforced rear axle and short wheelbase for exceptionally smooth maneuverability.
  • An electric or diesel engine designed for maximum fuel efficiency.

Ease of Use

Everyone wants vehicles on the job that work hard but are easy to use. This helps with speed and efficiency but also makes employee training simpler. Some features that make it easier to operate a terminal tractor include:

  • Automatic transmissions with pushbutton controls.
  • Fifth-wheel coupling with an auto-locking kingpin allows for easy semitrailer attachment/detachment.
  • A sliding back door offers easy operator access to semitrailer components.
