As we’ve touched on above, the 6×2 tractor units are now more flexible than the 4×2 configuration, which is currently limited to lighter loads. The three-axle tractor unit is by far the most common configuration in the UK, and when combined with a three-axle trailer, you essentially have an ‘artic’ with a combined weight of 44 tonnes (GTW). It’s a workhorse and ideal for a wide range of haulage applications, allowing hauliers to maximise fuel economy, primarily when operated on well-maintained, paved roads. In a 6×2 configuration, only one of the two rear axles receives power. Having fewer drive axles means less rolling resistance, which improves fuel efficiency — giving you the “most bang for your buck”. Suppose you’re looking to upgrade your existing 6×2 tractor unit or need to upgrade to this axle configuration to haul heavier payloads. In that case, we may be able to help, giving you the most competitive rate for your existing 6×2.
