Light vs. Heavy Duty Trucks

T&A Truck Specialist, Inc in Tampa, FL services all kinds of trucks, regardless of weight class. From small trucks to semi’s, we’ve got you covered. For the sake of curiosity, however, what classifies a truck as light or heavy duty?

The answer isn’t technically as simple as one or the other. Trucks are classified by categories, being labeled as grade 1-8 depending on their weight at maximum capacity, with 1 being the lightest, and 8 being the heaviest. This system encompasses everything from the Ford Ranger to the biggest commercial semi.

For most intents and purposes, you can consider any truck below 26,000 pounds “light duty.” these trucks don’t normally pull a trailer, don’t have air brakes, and don’t require a CDL. Any truck over 26,000 pounds requires a special license and is subject to other regulations.
