Five Construction Tools You're Better off Renting than Buying

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.

Tractor

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.

Tile Saw

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. 

Flooring Nailer

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.

Why Buy a Tool and Only use it once? Let A-1 Equipment Rental Center Help

If you own a home, then there is no doubt faced with at least a few do it yourself (DIY) projects per year.  Buying the power tools can be expensive, and if you are only planning on using them once or twice, then that tool will feel like a waste of cash.  Don’t give up your DIY dreams just yet! If there’s a rental center nearby, then you finally have a serious money-saving option.  Check out the benefits of equipment rental below!

 

  • Per Use Cost – Tool rental is a great way to fix the “per-use” cost problem of buying tools.  You figure the per-use cost by taking the total cost of the tool, and dividing it by the number of times you will be using it.  With equipment rental, you share the total cost of the tool with other customers, which is especially nice if you are only planning on using it once. 
  • Rent Anything – Did you know that you can rent almost any tool or piece of construction equipment?  Rental centers often offer tool rental along with truck rental and even tractor rental.  You can dig up your yard, haul away the dirt, and use a power tool to cut and lay new granite slabs all without breaking the bank. 
  • No Storage Problems – Power tools take up space, a lot of space.  The expensive tools need to be stored properly and can often be a hazard to your children or pets if stored near the home.  Tool rental can help prevent a storage problem and keep your home safe from power tool accidents.

Air Compressor Safety Tips

Air pressure is a very powerful force and over inflating items could cause them to explode, injuring anyone nearby with flying debris.  Knowing how to properly use an air compressor is vital before you rent one.
