22 Dec 2016
We talk about Tractor Truck used on deck carrying containers, logistics company, Heavy load between 50tons~70tons, super heavy load tractor truck more than 100tons and Extreme road conditions.
1- Used on deck carrying containers: You can choose terminal-use tractor truck with side cabin. Usually the engine power is from 260hp to 290hp with low rotate speed and large torque engine. Usually traveling speed is less than 45km/h and the towing weight is less than 60tons.
2- Used for logistics company high way transportation with towing weight less than 35T: For logistic company, time is very important. So you choose truck with high speed. Because usually these trucks are traveling one first-class highway, we recommend you to use big engine power, like 320-420hp, Al-alloy gearbox with 10 to 16 forward shift, single reduction axle with small ratio less than 4, and tubeless radial tire like 295/80R22.5 or 315/80R22.5 models. Economical speed are 75 ~105 (km/h). Also you can choose air deflector and side cover plate, which can reduce the air resistance and fuel-saving when driving.
3- Heavy load tractor truck, towing weight between 50tons~70tons: We recommend you to choose tractor truck with more than 400hp engine power, double reduction axle with bigger ratio like 4.42 or 4.8, radial tire model 1.00R20 or 12.00R20. Economical speed is 75-90km/h.
4- For super heavy load tractor truck, transporting big heavy cargo and towing weight more than 100tons: Super strong truck frame, engine more than 420hp, radial tire, driving speed less than 55km/h, big drive axle ratio like 5.73, double reduction axle.
5- Extreme road conditions: we recommend all wheel drive trucks, like 4*4, 6*6, and even 10*10 if necessary.
