Used Yard Trucks for Sale
Designed to move semi-trailers within freight yards, yard trucks allow for easy maneuverability to move units faster than a typical tractor and substantially increase operator efficiency.
Because these vehicles accommodate a hydraulic lifting fifth wheel, the operator can lower trailers and disengage the fifth wheel, without getting out of the cab or cranking the landing gear.
Our Yard Trucks – also known as Yard Dogs, Spotter Trucks, Yard Jockey, Mule - are designed to move freight within a cargo yard or warehouse facility. Typical inventory: Ottawa yard trucks.
Off Road Units: Maximum road speed 25 MPH. All models. Speed requirements in excess of 25MPH require DOT/EPA automotive certified engines.
On Road Units: Road speed of over 33 MPH requires FMVSS 121 and ABS brake systems.
