Used TrucksThe word ‘trucks’ can cover a wide variety of vehicles, with an equally wide variety of uses and specialisations. Trucks vary in size and power, but they tend to share the same general structure: a cab, a chassis, a cargo hold, an engine and a drive train. The cab is the part of a truck where the driver sits, and so contains the apparatus necessary to operate the vehicle; the steering wheel, the clutch and so on. There are two main types of cab, but almost all trucks in Europe and the UK use the Cab-Over-Engine (COE) configuration, whereby the driver is situated above the front axle and the engine.
Trucks for sale in the UKMost trucks for sale in the UK which are of medium size and upwards utilise four-stroke diesel engines, supplemented by a turbocharger and an intercooler or charge air cooler, both of which escalate the vehicle’s power by increasing the density of the air entering the engine. Smaller trucks for sale in the UK will most often use an automatic transmission, or a manual transmission with a synchromesh; a device which utilises a cone clutch to bring the teeth into synchronisation. Larger trucks for sale in the UK tend to rely on manual transmissions, sometimes with synchronisers, and sometimes without.
Used Trucks for saleUsed trucks for sale today consist of a steel, or steel/aluminium, frame that is made up of two C-shaped rails held together by transverse beams. These frameworks are called ladder frames due to their resemblance to a ladder. The rails consist of a long vertical part, or two if boxed, and two shorter horizontal flanges. The height of the vertical portion balances against vertical flex when weight is applied to the top of the frame, an effect known as beam resistance.
