What are the Advantages of Construction Equipement Rental?

If you have a big job, you are probably looking into the need for construction equipment. The next question is straightforward: Should I buy or look into construction equipment rental?

Here is what you need to know about some of the most important pieces of equipment for the majority of construction projects and whether buying or renting is the best option for you.

Boom Lifts

Boom lifts are also known as cherry pickers or aerial work platforms. They are versatile pieces of equipment that are great for all kinds of commercial projects, as well as miscellaneous projects like tree trimming.

Boom lifts let workers get to high areas, often in places that would otherwise be difficult to access. They are quite easy to operate. A single worker can operate one for most projects.

Height varies, but for most projects, a 60 foot or shorter model can do the job. These lifts can be driven on the highway from job site to job site, which is extremely convenient, especially for companies with a variety of smaller contracts.

When are Boom Lifts Useful?

  • Picking fruit. Historically, boom lifts have been associated with picking fruit, hence the name “cherry picker.” Boom lifts can easily navigate rows of trees in an orchard and allow workers to pick large amounts of fruit. They are much safer than having to climb ladders balanced on uneven terrain while carrying heavy baskets of fruit.
  • Service overhead cables and structure. Boom lifts are great for working on phone lines, elevated bulbs, high gutters, etc. They can delicately put you wherever you need to be on an elevated structure.
  • Trimming trees. Just as boom lifts are great for picking fruit, they are perfect for cutting off branches. Boom lifts can get workers up into the canopy to trim branches without having to put the tree at risk by climbing it.
  • Elevated exterior construction. Boom lifts can make it safer and easier to install siding, paint, or otherwise work on the exterior of a home or business. They are also great for working on windows and shutters.

Reach Forklifts (SkyTraks)

If you need to move a lot of material in a small amount of space, a reach forklift is a tool that you need. This handy piece of equipment is great for general material moving and anything else for which you’d need a forklift, as well as being capable of working within small spaces.

If you need to stock or access products from a tall shelf or stack, a reach forklift makes the job quick and easy.

When to Use a Reach Forklift

  • Warehouses with narrow aisles and tall shelves. The narrower your aisles and higher your shelves, the more inventory you can stock in the space. Reach forklifts let you safely fit more in your warehouse while retaining easy access to it and making stocking a breeze.
  • Materials need to be moved short distances. Companies with high turnover may receive shipments as frequently as every day at times. A reach forklift is an excellent choice if you need to move a lot of products over short distances.

The SkyTrak Difference

We have both gas and electric powered scissor lifts. They’re great for lifting vertically. Anything manpower would have to lift otherwise, scissor lifts can handle. They can work on any terrain, indoors or outside.

When to Use a Scissor Lift

  • Provide an elevated work area. A scissor lift can give you an elevated work area if you need to work on a ceiling or high walls of a job site.
  • Access storage. A scissor lift is a great and convenient way to reach very high shelves frequently to access materials or merchandise.

Mini Excavator

If you have a project that would be a huge job if using manpower but isn’t quite enough for a larger piece of equipment, the mini excavator is a perfect choice. They are surprisingly power-packed for their size.

Projects that need a lot of strength but don’t have a lot of maneuvering room can be taken care of smoothly with mini excavators.

  • Moving material. These convenient little excavators are great for moving snow and debris.
  • Excavation. Dig holes and trenches with ease, even in smaller spaces. These excavators are perfect for a backyard pond or home patio project.
  • Small demolition work. Mini excavators are sensitive enough to perform even delicate landscaping and garden tasks and work well on all kinds of terrain.

Skid Steers

If you have a lot of varied jobs to do, a skid steer is a superb option. They are a great choice if you only want one piece of machinery for a wide array of farm, warehouse, or business jobs. If you are looking into construction equipment rental for your skid steer, make sure that they have the attachments that you need.

These machines are surprisingly small for how much they can accomplish. They are compact, powerful tools for moving and excavating all kinds of sites. Various attachments make this an amazingly versatile piece of equipment. Choose between the standard bucket, excavation attachments like a tiller or ripper, or even construction tools like a cement mixer.

  • Debris removal. Take care of large amounts of brush and general cleanup across acres of a construction site.
  • Light excavation or demolition work. Excavate an area of sod or vegetation with a tiller or ripper and haul it away in the bucket.
  • Road maintenance or snow removal. Excavate a site and mix concrete to pave, all with one piece of equipment.
  • Landscaping. Attachments like a stump grinder, wood chipper, or tree spade make this an ideal choice for all kinds of landscaping. If you need to move farm or warehouse materials, pallet fork or bale spears may come in handy.
