5. Articulated Dump Truck
An articulated dump truck (also known as a rock truck) is a common equipment rental due to how expensive it is to own and the space required to store them. Because of this, renting these machines is typically more efficient for projects of all sizes.
The rock truck’s ability to move around on rough terrain, move materials in bulk, and maneuver in tight spaces makes it a guaranteed way to increase productivity. You can read more about this equipment in our article about the articulated dump truck.
4. Scissor Lift
The scissor lift is a popular machine to rent because of the valuable purpose it has on job sites that require heavy objects to be lifted up high. Scissor lifts are important because their proper use diminishes several safety hazards such as falls or back pain from improper lifting.
Because of this, they are a staple for many different jobs including roofing, industrial construction, and many tasks even outside of construction. Read more about scissor lifts and their purpose.
Because of its versatility, the backhoe is a go-to piece of equipment to rent. It is sometimes referred to as the swiss army knife of heavy construction equipment because of its ability to be used for numerous jobs. Backhoes are typically used for landscaping jobs such as moving boulders, gravel and dirt. More information on backhoes and how to use them here.
A bulldozer, often referred to as a dozer, is a great machine for rough terrain. They are an extremely common rental option because they are a staple for construction and mining jobs.
