There are some construction tools that aren't worth buying if you have an equipment rental store nearby. Even a project that's going to take a few weeks to complete won't warrant spending hundreds of dollars on all of the equipment you'll need to get the job done.
Here are five construction tools you're better off renting than buying.
Anytime your construction project requires excavating, you'll maximize your efficiency by renting a tractor. Unless you need a tractor for commercial use, you don’t need to buy a tractor. Renting a tractor will be more beneficial for small projects.
A tile saw is crucial to your new tile flooring project, but such a specialized saw is not worth buying for one project. Save a few hundred dollars by renting this tool.
Concrete Troweling Machine
You wouldn’t want to buy a concrete troweling machine if you only need to repave the driveway. Concrete tool rentals are especially handy for single jobs because you don’t need to store the troweling machine once your job is complete. And, tool rental companies allow you to rent tools for as long as you need in order to get the job done.
Airless Paint Sprayer
Painting can be a hassle, especially if you’re using a pan and roller. An airless paint sprayer can speed up the time it takes to paint a room or even several rooms. Once again, don’t bother purchasing this tool. Tool rental companies offer this tool all year long. If you need to touch up the paint at some point, you can rent the airless paint sprayer again.
A flooring nailer is another good tool to rent. Anytime you're looking for a highly specialized tool, you'll save money by renting the tool.
