If you are trying to explore options to complete your shipment or transportation project, you must consider the two most popular hauling and towing options. We have listed down information on highway trucks and light or medium trucks.
Highway trucks can have a towing capacity of about 20,000 pounds. They have a payload capacity of about 6,500 pounds, which means highway trucks can haul virtually anything that can be fitted in the truck bed. Highway trucks have powerful and heavy duty engines, ranging from 390-450 horsepower which enable them to cover larger distances while carrying heavy loads. Highway trucks, as the name reads, are ideal for broad and wide highways and roads.
Uses of highway trucks: Highway trucks are often used to haul goods from one place to another. But mostly, these heavy duty trucks are used to transport heavy loads, goods, products, and materials over a considerable distance. Highway trucks can easily ship containers, boxes, bundles, and other loads of raw materials and finished goods. They are also used at construction sites and near the iron and steel, and oil factories to carry heavy loads of raw materials from one part of the site to another.
Highway truck models: International ProStar +122 and +125, Western Star 4900SB, Kenworth T800, etc.
Light or Mid Truck
Light or mid trucks have a towing capacity of around 12,000 pounds and a payload capacity that ranges from 1,500 pounds to 3,000 pounds. These trucks have powerful engines ranging from 275-350 horsepower which make them perfect for transporting goods to long distances. As they can carry fewer loads, they can still travel long distances because of their powerful engines.
Uses of light/mid trucks: Light or mid trucks include vans, pickups, and sport utility vehicles. These trucks are majorly used for personal or light commercial tasks like hauling or towing smaller loads. Light or mid trucks are used during house relocation to relocate furniture, house accessories, potted plants, electronics, etc. As pickup trucks are also classified as light or mid trucks, they have a variety of uses.
Light/Mid Truck models: These are some truck models that we have in our inventory – Ford F-250 and F-350, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500, RAM 2500 and 3500, etc. If you wish to buy them before they are sold, contact us at the earliest!
