Anyone working in construction knows that a company’s ability to complete a project on schedule determines whether it succeeds or fails. Selecting the appropriate machine for your project is critical, so be sure you have the required specifications before contacting a heavy equipment rental company. Renting a machine and bringing it to the job site only to discover that it is the wrong size or that you are missing an important attachment is the last thing you want to do.
A little research can go a long way in saving you time and trouble.
When renting an excavator, forklift, or wheel loader, it’s important to consider the heights the equipment will need to reach for any particular operation. Verify with your rental facilitator that the machine you’re assessing can reach your maximum and minimum height requirements before relying solely on the online specifications. Knowing if you’ll be working on a level, smooth surface, or a rocky surface makes it easier to decide whether you need tracked equipment or if a wheeled machine would do. This information could also determine the tire tread your project will require.
