Over 80% of the American population depends on trucking deliveries for their goods and services.  A slew of services can’t be provided without commercial trucks either.  Day Cabs are one of the most versatile and valuable types of work trucks that are suitable to meet the needs of a multitude of provisions. 

All About Day Cabs

 Day Cabs are trucks without sleeper cabins.  They have a single compartment tha tis over the truck engine.  They sport a 30% to 40% tighter turning radium than conventional trucks do which gives than a huge advantage in certain fields of work.  There are cab-forward, flat nose, cab-over, and forward control types and are also a number of names they are called but all in all, a Day Cab is defined by a truck without a sleeper compartment.

The engines are mounted to either have a semi-hood or flat-face versus a regular hood like conventional trucks.  The engines are in front of the driver, unlike most other trucks.

Day Cabs are ideal for local drivers who don’t need to sleep in the back.  Because they don’t have a sleeping compartment, the cab is smaller and therefore, they get better mileage and cost less.  Drivers of Day Cabs have greater visibility than drivers of Sleeper Cabs do.
