Trucking operators require that their daycabs feature the highest levels of comfort on the road. A comfortable driver is more productive and better able to focus on safety and job performance. Driver comfort translates to driver retention! For this reason, fleet operators across the country are reviewing the latest daycab trucks for sale and paying close attention to the latest daycab innovations. To help operators understand these improvements, this article will focus on three of the recent innovations.
Kenworth designs daycabs with such superior interior quality they make drivers forget they are actually working. The interior of the new T880 features an extremely spacious and quiet, state-of-the-art control center. The new design comfortably accommodates any driver, regardless of their size. This spacious cab size helps drivers rest comfortably while driving and helps minimize stress placed on their backs and spines from having to hunch down.
The driver controls within the vehicle are also now closer to the driver’s seat. This helps to minimize stretching-related injuries and gives drivers a greater degree of vehicle control. The center console of the T880 vehicle has been fitted with two 12-volt outlets to safely and simply store and charge cell phones and other electronic devices during the journey.
Each element of the T880’s design is driver-focused. Take, for example, the placement of the air conditioning system and heater motors. These are mounted on the firewall to minimize the noise in the cabin and allow for a more peaceful driving experience.
Operators can make more effective choices for their long-term fleet needs by learning more about the latest daycab innovations.
