Find Yard Spotter Truck For Sale
A yard spotter truck is a truck used to move trailers around a shipping yard. When maneuvering around a shipping yard, it’s important to be able to relocate containers quickly and efficiently and a yard spotter truck is built to do just that. Though most are not appropriate for a long haul, they are far easier to manage, as there is a hydraulic fifth wheel that makes it simple to load and unload. Additionally, a yard spotter truck lacks the sleeping compartment that is typical in tractors and makes them cumbersome to use for short transport in the yard.
Yard spotter trucks are made by brands such as TICO, Autocar, Capacity, Ottawa and others. They can be found in models that are for yard-only or that are DOT approved for short transport on the roadways.
