What is considered a heavy-duty truck?
Driving down the roads of Milford Center, Ohio, Marysville, Ohio, Champaign/Union/Logan, Ohio, North Lewisburg, Ohio, and West Liberty, Ohio, you have likely seen many heavy-duty trucks driving alongside you. Any vehicle that weighs more than 26,001 pounds is considered a heavy-duty truck. Some examples of heavy-duty trucks include mobile cranes, city transit buses, tractors designed to pull trailers, refuse trucks, cement mixers, and dry vans. Heavy-duty trucks are generally divided into three categories:
Class 7: 26,001 to 33,000 pounds (ex. garbage collection vehicles, livestock transports)
Class 8: 33,001 pounds or heavier (ex. 18-wheelers, sleeper cabs, dump trucks, tractor-trailers)
Class 9: Vehicles that weigh more than 60,000 pounds (super heavy/special duty truck)
Many heavy-duty trucks have large engines that run on diesel as well as have enhanced transmissions because these trucks are designed to tow large loads. Heavy-duty trucks are also seen on job sites, where they are required to carry large construction materials. They have a towing capacity of over 20,000 pounds and offer payload capacities of over 6,500 pounds - enough to haul pretty much anything that can fit in the truck's bed.
If you are in Champaign and are a fan of outdoor adventures and road trips, you would probably benefit from owning a heavy-duty truck. Mack, Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth, and even some common vehicle brands have heavy-duty trucks in their vehicle lineups.
