PRODUCTIVITY, EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT OR BOTH?
When choosing machines to rent, think about which kind of technology you’d like to try.
›› Measure payload and cycle time by machine and by operator, delivering the data you need to optimize production, identify training opportunities and reduce loading and hauling costs.
›› Improve the speed and accuracy of certain machine functions—like grading and compacting—so you can finish jobs faster with less rework.
EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES:
›› Provide location, fuel burn, utilization rates and operator data to help you cut costs, protect your fleet, plan training and get full use from your equipment assets.
›› Track hours, health and maintenance issues so you can maximize uptime and control repair costs.
Some companies prefer to test one type of technology at a time.
Others appreciate the synergies that can be achieved by trying it all. The choice is yours.
MORE REASONS TO RENT
The ability to try before you buy is a great reason to rent. Here are some others:
- Ready to work. Low-hour, well-maintained rental machines can be on the job earning revenue fast.
- More flexibility. Supplementing your core fleet with rental machines can help you quickly adapt to changing project requirements or customer expectations.
- ￼￼￼￼No maintenance costs. Most rental agreements cover all the maintenance expenses, including Preventive Maintenance (PM).
- ￼No storage costs. Get machines delivered when and where you need them, then call for a pick up when you’re done.
- ￼No capital investment. Pay for the use of the asset, not the asset itself, ￼and free up your capital for other priorities.
- More borrowing power. Rental keeps your balance sheet strong because payments are recorded as expenses, not liabilities.
- Lower emissions. Late-model rental machines typically feature newer engines that meet tougher emissions standards.
DON’T GO IT ALONE
Get your equipment dealer involved before you rent. Work with a professional who can:
- Explain the technology options simply and clearly
- Help you choose the right size machine and work tools for the job
- Interpret the data you capture
- Provide information about short-term rental and lease-purchase options
