¾ Ton Diesel Rental Truck

Our wide selection guarantees you’ll find the right vehicle. In your research, you may see diesel trucks listed by the ton. This classifies trucks by their payload capabilities, otherwise known as the maximum amount of weight they can hold in the cargo and passenger areas. It’s important to know, however, that this classification has become very flexible.

Often called a “heavy-duty truck,” the ¾ ton option offers more power and towing capabilities than smaller trucks and is a good middle-ground option for anyone whose diesel rental truck needs include heavy lifting. A popular example of this type of truck is the Ford F-Series.

1 Ton Diesel Rental Truck

This top-of-the-line diesel truck can tow anywhere from 35,000 to 37,000 pounds and has a weight capacity of up to 7,800 pounds, depending on the make and model. The Ford, GM, and Ram 1-ton diesel trucks push more pound-feet of torque than their gas-powered counterparts.

1 ½ Ton Diesel Rental Truck

If you’re looking for even more power and payload and towing capabilities, consider a 1 ½ ton diesel rental truck. It offers a heavier duty option that can haul more but still falls under the weight limit where CDL requirements kick in. They typically come as a chassis cab that you then upfit to your needs. Examples include the Ford F450, RAM 6500, and Chevy 5500.
