Day cab trucks are, as the name suggests, for shorter haul loads where the driver is home every night. There is no sleeper bunk on a daycab. Generally, day cab trucks do not put on the high miles or run continuously, as a sleeper truck will because they are used for much shorter distance hauling and usually home every night.
These are Class 7-8 trucks with GVW of 26,001 pounds and greater. Our heavy-duty daycabs offer industry leading group clearance. Our many customers who rely on daycabs as part of their business include general freight companies, owner operators, construction operators, retailers, farmers and more.
Applications can include food service delivery, hauling refrigerated goods, hauling dry goods from distribution centers to retail stores in-city, a wide variety of construction applications that require day cabs with wet kits and farm applications to name a few.
Maxim Truck & Trailer sells a broad variety of day cabs including single axle and tandem axle configurations and a wide variety of wheel base lengths. Engine power includes International A26, Cummins ISX, Cat and Detroit engines with horsepower ratings of 350-600 horsepower. Transmission options include automatic and manual transmissions with 13-18 speeds. Our units come with and without wet kits. No matter the application, Maxim has the right new or used day cab for you.

When it comes to new heavy duty truck models, we sell International trucks. However, we also carry used Volvo, Peterbilt, Kenworth, and Freightliner trucks from time to time (and many other truck brands as well).
Our trucks in stock include brand new International Truck units including International LT, International LoneStar, International HX and International RH daycabs as well as later model Internationals like the Prostar, PayStar, 9900i and 9400i units. We also stock trade-in units from Peterbilt, Volvo, Kenworth, Mack and Freightliner, nearly new rental units from our large rental fleet and high quality off-lease units from our national lease fleet. We offer more variety and more inventory than most dealers in Canada because we are a new International Truck Dealer with many locations that sell new units coupled with a large Lease and Rental Fleet that is continually generating high quality used inventory. Most units come with a complete service history and build sheet line set.
The new International Truck daycab models have distinctive features that include enhanced fuel economy and enhanced driver comfort and visibility. If you haven’t driven a new model International truck lately, come to Maxim for a test drive.
Our popular daycab add-ons and customization include backup lights, fenders, hydraulic wet kit, beacons, moose bumper, headache rack, electric kit for electric tarps, engine and cab heater systems and extended warranty packages.
Should I buy a day cab or a sleeper?
The biggest thing to consider when deciding whether or not to purchase a day cab tractor or a sleeper tractor is travel distance. Unless you or your drivers are travelling cross-country distances where overnight arrangements are required, you should stick with a day cab.
The main reason is because, in general, day cabs are more fuel efficient. Studies have shown you can save up to 10 per cent more money on gas when driving a day cab in comparison to a sleeper. This is because the sleeper portion of the truck takes away from the aerodynamics of the vehicle, and thus, causes the driver to use more gas in order achieve the same speed they would normally achieve driving a day cab.
So if you own or work for a company making deliveries where the driver can go there and back within the same day - day cab trucks are definitely the right call.
What are my day cab purchasing options?
Your options include buying, leasing and renting with flexible lease and rental terms to meet your business and financial needs.
On-site financing is available on our entire inventory. We understand the unique needs of those purchasing or leasing transportation equipment and we’ll find the best financing solution for you and your business.
