Semi-trailer (truck), sometimes, in US, people call it 18 wheeler.
Fire engine (消防車) has water supply
(Aerial ladder) fire truck(雲梯車) has no onboard water supply, just ladder for transporting or rescuing people
Farming machines, this is just a general terminology. It involves quite a few different kind of machines.

It is called "tractor-trailer", because this kind of vehicle has TWO separate units: traitor (prime mover, has the power to pull), trailer (the cargo where stuffs for transporting are placed, no power).

It is called "semi", because the trailer only has wheels at its rear portion, without the traitor, it cannot stand by itself. It is kind of "SEMI-wheeless". (where semi = half)
