Benefits of a Cab-Over
The unique design of a cab-over chassis gives a number of benefits to drivers and companies, not to mention bystanders who may be near a vehicle while it’s in operation.
The primary benefit of a cab-over is visibility. Since the engine is located directly below the cab, it doesn’t obstruct the driver’s view of the surrounding area. Along with a wide windshield, this allows operators a panoramic view of their surroundings, increasing safety for pedestrians and other drivers nearby. Naturally, this can reduce the likelihood of accidents, minimizing liability for your organization.
The more compact design of a cab-over also increases maneuverability, allowing the driver to make tighter turns.This facilitates driving within cities, including on streets that would normally be too restrictive for large trucks. Contrast this with traditional trucks, which have a much wider turning radius due to the extra space out front needed to house the engine, and it’s clear why cab-overs might be preferred for local applications.
Finally, cab-over trucks are excellent for upfitting to your fleet’s requirements. They can be fitted with a flat bed for general hauling, waste-handling equipmentfor refuse collection, or trailers for short-haul moving. While not necessarily well outfitted for long-haul applications, cab overs tend to be highly versatile when it comes to most municipal and short-range commercial requirements.
