The fifth-wheel trailer coupling on most tractor trucks is movable fore and aft, to allow adjustment in the weight distribution over its rear axle(s). The result is that both the tractor and semi -trailer will have a design distinctly different from that of a rigid truck and trailer.

The mid-roof sleeper has a slightly higher and rounded roof for more headroom and space. A raiser-roof sleeper is a semi -tractor with a compartment attached to the cabin for the truck driver(s) to rest and sleep.

Some sleeper offers a premium sound system, flat-screen TV, and side storage tower. The raised-roof sleeper has the highest roof for more space and better driver comfort.

The maximum weight for a U.S. semi truck and full trailer is 80,000 pounds spread over 18 conventional wheels. Out in the wide-open spaces of Australia, however, “road trains” can have four trailers and weigh in excess of 300,000 pounds.

Recent estimates suggest 68 percent of all goods in the U.S. are delivered by semi truck, which works out to about 60,000 pounds per American every year. This year Shell’s Starship concept truck used advanced aerodynamics and hybrid motors to attain… 8.9 mpg.

Antilock brakes on semi trucks have been required since 1997, which has significantly reduced the number of jackknife crashes, in which the rear wheels of the truck lock up and the trailer swings around to an acute angle with the truck. Federal highway investigators say that these happen when a semi truck travels over a loose surface and the driver overcorrects while trying to steer it back onto pavement.

The noticeable difference between tractor units in Europe and North America is that almost all European models are cab over engine (called “forward control” in England ), while the majority of North American trucks are “conventional” (called “normal control” or “bonneted” in England ). This allows shorter trucks with longer trailers (with larger freight capacity) within the legal maximum total length.

Furthermore, it offers greater maneuverability in confined areas, a more balanced weight-distribution and better overall view for the driver. The major disadvantage is that for repairs on COE trucks, the entire cab has to hinge forward to allow maintenance access.

Conversely, “conventional” cab tractors offer the driver a more comfortable driving environment, easier access getting in or out and better protection in a collision. This format is now common across Europe as it is able to meet the EU maximum weight limit of 40,000 kg (88,000 pounds) without overloading any axle.

Individual countries have raised their own weight limit, for example the UK which has a 44,000 kg (97,000 pounds) limit, this increase is achieved by adding an extra axle to the tractor usually in the form of a middle unpowered lifting axle (midlife) with a total of 14 wheels. The lift axles used on both tractors and trailers allow the trucks to remain legal when fully loaded (as weight per axle remains within the legal limits); on the other hand, this axle set(s) can be raised off the roadway for increased maneuverability, or for reduced fuel consumption and tire wear when carrying lighter loads.

Although lift axles usually operate automatically, they can be lowered manually even while carrying light loads, in order to remain within legal (safe) limits when, for example, navigating back-road bridges with severely restricted axle loads. When using a dolly, which generally has to be equipped with lights and a license plate, rigid trucks can be used to pull semi -trailers.

The tractor/ semi -trailer configuration is rarely used on timber trucks, since these will use the two big advantages of having the weight of the load on the drive wheels, and the loader crane used to lift the logs from the ground can be mounted on the rear of the truck behind the load, allowing a short (lightweight) crane to reach both ends of the vehicle without uncoupling. Also, construction trucks are more often seen in a rigid + midaxle trailer configuration instead of the tractor/ semi -trailer setup.

Continental Europe All EuroCombi variants being considered for Europe-wide adoption maximum overall length in the EU and EEA member states was 18.75 m (61.5 ft) with a maximum weight of 40 or 44 tonnes (39.4 or 43.3 long tons; 44.1 or 48.5 short tons) if carrying an ISO container. 25.25-metre (83 ft) truck combinations were developed under the branding of Economic which influenced the name of EuroCombi for an ongoing standardization effort where such truck combinations shall be legal to operate in all jurisdictions of the European Economic Area.

The 1996 EU regulation defines a Europe Module System (EMS) as it was implemented in Sweden. The wording of EMS combinations and EuroCombi are now used interchangeably to point to truck combinations as specified in the EU document; however, apart from Sweden and Finland, the EuroCombi is only allowed to operate on specific roads in other EU member states.

Since 1996, when Sweden and Finland formally won a final exemption from the European Economic Area rules with 60 tonne and 25.25-metre (83 ft) combinations, all other From 2006, 25.25 m truck trailer combinations are to be allowed on restricted routes within Germany, following a similar (ongoing) trial in The Netherlands. In Italy the maximum permitted weight (unless exceptional transport is authorized) is 44 tonnes for any kind of combination with five axles or more.

Nordic Countries A truck with a swap body pulling a trailer using a dolly ; the overall length is 25.25 m (83 ft)Denmark and Norway allow 25.25 m (83 ft) trucks (Denmark from 2008, and Norway from 2008 on selected routes). What stopped Sweden from adopting the same rules as the rest of Europe, when securing road safety, was the national importance of a competitive forestry industry.

Finland, with the same road safety issues and equally important forestry industry, followed suit. The change made trucks able to carry three stacks of cut-to-length logs instead of two, as it would be in a short combination.

In the negotiations starting in the late 1980s preceding Sweden and Finland's entries to the European Economic Area and later the European Union, they insisted on exemptions from the EU rules citing environmental concerns and the transportation needs of the logging industry. The effect this major maximum weight increase would cause to the roads and bridges in Finland over time is strongly debated.

The mining company Golden AB have a standing special permit for 76-tonne (75-long-ton; 84-short-ton) combinations on select routes between mines in the inland and the processing plant in Golden, taking a 50-tonne (49-long-ton; 55-short-ton) load of ore. Volvo has a special permit for a 32 m (105 ft), steering B-trailer-trailer combination carrying two 12 m (40 ft) containers to and from Gothenburg harbor and the Volvo Trucks factory, all on the island of Singer. As the name of the project points out, it will be able to carry four stacks of timber, instead of the usual three.

The test is limited to Forgotten county and the European route E4 between the timber terminal in Overall and the sawmill in Mankind (outside Pita). It is estimated that this will give a 20% lower cost and 20-25% CO2 emissions reduction compared to the regular 60-tonne (59-long-ton; 66-short-ton) truck combinations.

As the combinations spreads its weight over more axles, braking distance, road wear and traffic safety is believed to be either the same or improved with the 90-tonne (89-long-ton; 99-short-ton) truck -trailer. In the same program two types of 76-tonne (75-long-ton; 84-short-ton) combinations will be tested in Falkland and Bohemian counties in western Sweden: an enhanced truck and trailer combination for use in the forest and a b-double for plain highway transportation to the mill in Shall.

Starting from Jan 21 2019 Finland Government change the maximum allowed length of truck from 25.25 to 34.50 meters (82.8 to 113.2 ft). New types of vehicle combinations that differ from the current standards may also be used on the road.

United Kingdom In the United Kingdom the maximum permitted gross weight of a semi -trailer truck without the use of a Special Type General Order (SAGO) is 44,000 kg (97,000 lb). Lower weight semi -trailer trucks can mean some tractors and trailer having fewer axles.

Semi -trailer trucks in continental Europe have a height limit of 13.1 ft (4.0 m). Vehicles heavier than 44,000 kg are permitted on UK roads but are indivisible loads, which would be classed as abnormal (or oversize).

Such vehicles are required to display an SAGO (Special Types General Order) plate on the front of the tractor unit and, under certain circumstances, are required to travel by an authorized route and have an escort. Although the Construction and Use Regulations allow a maximum rigid length of 60 ft (18.2 m), this, combined with a shallow kingpin and fifth wheel set close to the rear of the tractor unit, can give an overall length of around 75 ft (22.75 m).

Starting in January 2012 the Department for Transport is conducting a trial of longer semi -trailers. The increase in length will not result in the 97,000 lb weight limit being exceeded and will allow some operators to approach the weight limit which may not have been previously possible due to the previous length of trailers.

Providing certain requirements are fulfilled, a Special Types General Order (SAGO) allows for vehicles of any size or weight to travel on UK roads. However, in practice any such vehicle has to travel by a route authorized by the Department of Transport and move under escort.

The escort of abnormal loads in the UK is now predominantly carried out by private companies, but extremely large or heavy loads that require road closures must still be escorted by the police. In 2009, the operator Deny Transport designed and built an 83 ft long (25.25 m) B-Train (or B-Double) semi -trailer truck called the Deny Eco-Link to show the benefits of such a vehicle, which were a reduction in road accidents and result in less road deaths, a reduction in emissions due to the one tractor unit still being used and no further highway investment being required.

Furthermore, Deny Transport asserted that two Eco-Links would replace three standard semi -trailer trucks while, if limited to the current UK weight limit of 97,000 lb, it was claimed the Eco-Link would reduce carbon emissions by 16% and could still halve the number of trips needed for the same amount of cargo carried in conventional semi -trailer trucks. This is based on the fact that for light but bulky goods such as toilet paper, plastic bottles, cereals and aluminum cans, conventional semi -trailer trucks run out of cargo space before they reach the weight limit.

The vehicle was built after Deny Transport believed they had found a legal-loophole in the present UK law to allow the Eco-Link to be used on the public roads. The relevant legislation concerned the 1986 Road Vehicles Construction and Use Regulations.

The 1986 regulations state that “certain vehicles” may be permitted to draw more than one trailer and can be up to 85 ft (25.9 m). The point of law reportedly hinged on the definition of a “towing implement”, with Deny prepared to argue that the second trailer on the Eco-Link was one.

The Department for Transport were of the opinion that this refers to recovering a vehicle after an accident or breakdown, but the regulation does not explicitly state this. Reportedly, private trials had also shown the Deny vehicle had a 20% shorter stopping distance than conventional semi -trailer trucks of the same weight, due to having extra axles.

The active steer system meant that the Eco-Link had a turning circle of 41 ft (12.5 m), the same as a conventional semi -trailer truck. Although the Department for Transport advised that the Eco-Link was not permissible on public roads, Deny Transport gave the Police prior warning of the timing and route of the test drive on the public highway, as well as outlining their position in writing to the Eastern Traffic Area Office.

On 1 December 2009 Deny Transport were preparing to drive the Eco-Link on public roads, but this was cut short because the Police pulled the semi -trailer truck over as it left the gates in order to test it for its legality “to investigate any... offenses which may be found”. Having returned to the yard, Deny Transport was formally notified by Police and ROSA that the semi -trailer truck could not be used.

The fifth-wheel trailer coupling on most tractor trucks is movable fore and aft, to allow adjustment in the weight distribution over its rear axle(s). With changes in the US to the maximum length of the combined vehicle, the cab over was largely phased out of North American over-the-road (long-haul) service by 2007.

Cab overs were difficult to service; for a long time the cab could not be lifted on its hinges to a full 90-degree forward tilt, severely limiting access to the front part of the engine. The combination of eight tires on the trailer and ten tires on the tractor is what led to the moniker eighteen wheeler, although this term is considered by some truckers to be a misnomer (the term “eighteen-wheeler” is a nickname for a five-axle over-the-road combination).

Many trailers are equipped with movable tandem axles to allow adjusting the weight distribution. B-Doubles: Twin 33 ft (10.1 m) trailers in B-double configuration (very common in Canada but rarely used in the United States).

Future long combination vehicles under consideration and study for the US MAP-21 transportation bill are container doubles. The US federal government, which only regulates the Interstate Highway System, does not set maximum length requirements (except on auto and boat transporters), only minimums.

Tractors can pull two or three trailers if the combination is legal in that state. Roads other than the Interstates are regulated by the individual states, and laws vary widely.

Reasons for limiting the legal trailer configurations include both safety concerns and the impracticality of designing and constructing roads that can accommodate the larger wheelbase of these vehicles and the larger minimum turning radii associated with them. The Canadian province of Ontario, however, does have weather-related operating restrictions for larger tandem trailer setups.

This means that Australian single semi -trailer trucks will usually have 22 tires, which is generally more than their counterparts in other countries. The suspension is designed with travel limiting, which will hold the rim off the road for one blown or deflated tire for each side of the trailer, so a trailer can be driven at reduced speed to a safe place for repair.

From July 2007, the Australian Federal and State Governments allowed the introduction of B-triple trucks on a specified network of roads. True road trains only operate in remote areas, regulated by each state or territory government.

However, heavy restrictions apply to the areas where such a vehicle may travel in most states. Articulated trucks towing a single trailer or two trailers (commonly known as “short doubles”) with a maximum overall length of 19 m (62 ft) are referred to as “General access heavy vehicles” and are permitted in all areas, including metropolitan.

B-doubles are very common in all parts of Australia including state capitals and on major routes they outnumber single trailer configurations. In Australia, both conventional prime movers and cab overs are common, however, cab overs are most often seen on B-doubles on the eastern seaboard where the reduction in total length allows the vehicle to pull longer trailers and thus more cargo than it would otherwise.

New rules were introduced effective 1 February 2017, which increased the maximum height, width and weight of loads and vehicles, to simplify regulations, increase the amount of freight carried by road, and to improve the range of vehicles and trailers available to transport operators. Common combinations in New Zealand are a standard semi -trailer, a B-double, or a rigid towing vehicle pulling a trailer with a draw bar, with a maximum of nine axles.

Standard maximum vehicle lengths for trailers with one axle set are: Shown in blue in the underside view are the axles, drive shaft, and differentials.

The cargo trailer is, by means of a king pin, hooked to a horseshoe-shaped quick-release coupling device called a fifth wheel or a turntable hitch at the rear of the towing engine that allows easy hook up and release. The truck trailer cannot move by itself because it only has wheels at the rear end: it requires a forward axle, provided by the towing engine, to carry half the load weight.

Such a truck accident is called a “trailer swing”, although it is also commonly described as a “jackknife”. Jackknifing is a condition where the tr active unit swings round against the trailer, and not vice versa.

A pair of semi -trailer “Suzie” at the back of an Australian prime mover, red line for emergency/supply and blue for control Semi trucks use air pressure, rather than hydraulic fluid, to actuate the brake. The use of air hoses allows for ease of coupling and uncoupling of trailers from the tractor unit.

This is a fail-safe design feature which ensures that if air pressure to either unit is lost, the vehicle will stop to a grinding halt, instead of continuing without brakes and becoming uncontrollable. The trailer controls are coupled to the tractor through two glad hand connectors, which provide air pressure, and an electrical cable, which provides power to the lights and any specialized features of the trailer.

The faces are placed together, and the units are rotated so that the tabs engage each other to hold the connectors together. This arrangement provides a secure connection but allows the couplers to break away without damaging the equipment if they are pulled, as may happen when the tractor and trailer are separated without first uncoupling the air lines.

An emergency or main air supply line pressurizes the trailer's air tank and disengages the emergency brake, and a second service line controls the brake application during normal operation. In the UK, male/female quick release connectors (red line or emergency), have a female on the truck and male on the trailer, but a yellow line or service has a male on the truck and female on the trailer.

This avoids coupling errors (causing no brakes) plus the connections will not come apart if pulled by accident. However, the use of compression brake alone produces a loud and distinctive noise, and to control noise pollution, some local municipalities have prohibited or restricted the use of engine brake systems inside their jurisdictions, particularly in residential areas.

Some vehicles can also be equipped with hydraulic or electric retarders which have an advantage of near silent operation. Many transmission ratios means the driver can operate the engine more efficiently.

The 13-, 15-, and 18-speed transmissions have the same basic shift pattern but include a splitter button to enable additional ratios found in each range. On an automobile, the clutch pedal is depressed full stroke to the floor for every gear shift, to ensure the gearbox is disengaged from the engine.

The clutch is pressed to the floor only to allow a smooth engagement of low gears when starting from a full stop; when the truck is moving, the clutch pedal is pressed only far enough to break torque for gear changes. An electrical connection is made between the tractor and the trailer through a cable often referred to as a pigtail.

With increased efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the use of the super-single tire is gaining popularity. In 1999, tests on an oval track showed a 10% fuel savings when super singles were used.

These savings are realized because less energy is wasted flexing fewer tire sidewalls. Second, the lighter overall tire weight allows a truck to be loaded with more freight.

One of the major disadvantages of the super singles is that they are currently not as widely available as a standard tire. With dual wheels, the remaining tire may be overloaded, but it will typically allow the vehicle to be safely stopped or driven to a repair facility.

In Europe, super singles became popular when the allowed weight of semitrailer rigs was increased from 38 to 40 tonnes. The majority of super singles sold in Europe have a width of 385 mm (15.2 in).

The standard 385 tires have a legal load limit of 4,500 kg (9,900 lb). (Note that expensive, specially reinforced 385 tires approved for 5,000 kg (11,000 lb) do exist.

Their market share is tiny, except for mounting on the steer axle.) Three split skirt concepts were verified by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide fuel savings greater than 5%, and four split skirt concepts had EPA-verified fuel savings between 4% and 5%.

Skirted trailers are often combined with Under run Protection Systems (underside guards), greatly improving safety for passenger vehicles sharing the road. Crash test of an underside guard at 30–40 km/h (19–25 mph); the truck platform at head height has been prevented from slicing through the windshieldUnderride protection systems can be installed at the rear, front and sides of a truck and the rear and sides of a trailer.

A Rear Under run Protection System (RUNS) is a rigid assembly hanging down from trailer's chassis, which is intended to provide some protection for passenger cars which collide with the rear of the trailer. Public awareness of this safeguard was increased in the aftermath of the accident that killed actress Jayne Mansfield on 29 June 1967, when the car she was in hit the rear of a tractor-trailer, causing fatal head trauma.

The bottom rear of the trailer is near head level for an adult seated in a car, and without the underside guard, the only protection for such an adult's head in a rear-end collision would be the car's windshield and A pillar. The underside guard provides a rigid area for the car to contact that is lower than the lip of the bonnet/hood, preventing the vehicle from squatting and running under the truck and ensuring that the vehicle's crush zones and engine block absorb the force of the collision.

These additional barriers prevent passenger cars from skidding underneath the trailer from the side, such as in an oblique or side collision, or if the trailer jackknifes across the road, and helps protect cyclists, pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. In Europe, side and rear under run protection are mandated on all trucks and trailers with a gross weight of 3,500 kilograms (7,700 lb) or more.

The NTSB has recommended that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) develop standards for side underside protection systems for trucks, and for newly manufactured trucks to be equipped with technology meeting the standards. In addition to safety benefits, these underside guards may improve fuel mileage by reducing air turbulence under the trailer at highway speeds.

Another benefit of having a sturdy rear underside guard is that it may be secured to a loading dock with a hook to prevent trailer creep “, a movement of the trailer away from the dock, which opens up a dangerous gap during loading or unloading operations. The B Condition may be removed upon the driver proving the ability to drive a constant mesh transmission using the clutch.

Category C ( in Greece) is required for vehicles over 7,500 kg (16,500 lb), while category E is for heavy trailers, which in the case of trucks and buses means any trailer over 750 kg (1,650 lb). A bus that is registered for no more than 16 passengers, excluding the driver, can be driven with a D1 license.

In New Zealand, drivers of heavy vehicles require specific licenses, termed as classes. A Class 1 license (car license) will allow the driving of any vehicle with Gross Laden Weight (GLOW) or Gross Combination Weight (GCB) of 6,000 kg (13,000 lb) or less.

Taiwanese sign prohibiting heavy trailers Road Traffic Security Rules () require a combination vehicle driver license (Chinese : ) to drive a combination vehicle (Chinese : ). Drivers of semi -trailer trucks generally require a Class A commercial driver's license (CDL) to operate any combination vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (or GCR) in excess of 26,000 lb (11,800 kg) if the gross vehicle weight rating (OVER) of the towed vehicle(s) is in excess of 10,000 lb (4,500 kg).

Various types of rail flat bed train cars are modified to hold the cargo trailer or container with wheels or without. The system allows the cargo to switch from highway to railway or vice versa with relative ease by using gantry cranes.

The large trailers pulled by a tractor unit come in many styles, lengths, and shapes. Some common types are: vans, reefers, flatbeds, sidelights and tankers.

These trailers may be refrigerated, heated, ventilated, or pressurized, depending on climate and cargo. The purpose of this is to help adjust weight distribution over the various axles, to comply with local laws.
