Air Compressors

Air Compressors

One of the most useful pieces of equipment in the industrial equipment world is the air compressor. The air compressor is a device which converts power into energy by compressing air and releasing it with force in a confined, directional area. The air can be released as needed in short bursts of power which can then be used for a range of different purposes. Air compressors are extremely versatile and useful which is why we carry a wide range of sizes and types of this category of rental equipment.

air compressor image


An air compressor uses fuel, typically from a gasoline or diesel engine to compress and pressurize air. There are many different types of air compressors which can be classified in a number of different ways. For instance, the air compressor can be categorized based on:

  • what type of design and principle of operation it uses
  • the number of stages it employs
  • according to the pressure limits it uses
  • according to its capacity
  • according to the method of cooling that it uses

There are many different uses of air compressors. It is often used to power pneumatic tools such as paint sprayers or nail guns, or simply to fill and pressurize various types of chambers. In addition to powering tools one of the most commonly seen and readily understood uses of an air compressor is to inflate something such as a tire or other tube.

One of the benefits of this type of machinery is the ability to focus and control the power. There is typically a small degree of risk to surrounding surfaces and structures and the power itself is efficient and can be well directed. Another benefit is that air compressors require very little regular maintenance.

The uses are virtually endless which is what makes this type of equipment one of the most popular to rent. We keep a large inventory of these machines to ensure that we will be able to handle your needs whenever they arise and at whatever quantity of rentals the job calls for. Our rates are very competitive and we can locate the compressor you need even if we don’t have it. We are here to serve your business in all of its equipment needs..

Air Movers

Air Movers

The Air Mover is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment found at many industrial sites. It can be used for a huge range of different functions and it often ends up being the unsung hero of the work site. However, despite the potential benefits and its high degree of prevalence, many people are unfamiliar of what exactly an Air Mover is. Furthermore, many people who use them on a regular basis may not have thought about all of their potential useful applications.

Air Movers use a truly ingenious design to maximize their effectiveness. Despite using only a minimal amount of compressed air for their power source, Air Movers nevertheless manage to have a significant effect on their targets. This is achieved through a process called the Venturi effect which in its simplest terms involves the increasing of air pressure due to its flow through a constricted pipe or tube.

Uses

There are almost an infinite number of creative, useful things that one can do with an Air Mover machine; however, by and large they can be classified into a few main categories.

Blowing: The blowing of the air from the Air Mover can achieve several things. It can be used to ventilate work areas, cool motors and other work objects, or humidify an area by spraying a mist in front of the air stream. Many of these uses are very similar to that of a traditional fan.

Removal of Fumes: One of the most common functions of an Air Mover in industrial settings is to safely remove a toxic or unpleasant fume or gas from an area.

Movement: Air Movers, by their very name, move air. Thus, they can also be used to convey lightweight objects. This is very helpful for removing lint, dust, paper scraps, leaves, and other small debris from a work area. This can also be useful if the operators are trying to sort small lightweight objects from other smaller, heavier objects which would be unmoved by the air.

Mixing and Agitation: One of the more creative uses for an Air Mover is to agitate liquid in a tank which might be desirable for a number of reasons in some settings. Air Movers are also effective for mixing air with other gases.

Drying: Air Movers are frequently used to dry water off of something, or to dry ink, paints, or other coatings from a surface.

There are many benefits to using an Air Mover machine rather than a different piece of equipment that might serve a similar function. For instance with Air Movers you can instantly start or stop the flow of air as desired. By comparison using a fan or other rotating device would require waiting for the fan blades to quit moving as well as the small amount of upfront lag time while they reach their maximum speed. This might not seem like a big deal, but if you are need very precise, controlled air movement the Air Mover is the better option. They are also a good bit quieter to run than industrial fans.

Air Movers are also safer than many other options because they do not use electricity and thus are less likely to be involved in explosions or fires. This can be a huge boon in any industrial setting. Another big benefit is that since there aren’t any moving parts they do not require regular maintenance and yet are extremely reliable. They are also safer overall than most other similar equipment.

Overall an Air Mover can be a significant help at most industrial sites. Thanks to their portability and wide range of applications they can go almost anywhere and do almost any number of things. Here at GTI we are pleased to be able to offer this useful piece of equipment for rental to customers. Please contact us for rates and other information..

Air Tools

Air Tools

Air Tool Basics

Air Tools are familiar to anyone who has worked in the construction business or in an industrial setting. Even though Air Tools are commonly used, not everyone understands exactly what they are. By learning a little bit about Air Tools, how they work, and what they do, you’ll have a better understanding of how these tools can benefit you.

What are Air Tools?

Simply put, an air tool is a mechanical tool whose action is driven by compressed air or gas. The air is supplied by a compressor which connects to the tool via a hose. Because air tools use compressed gas and air, they’re sometimes called pneumatic tools.

The Air Tools you’ll find on a job site will likely include:

  • Airbrush
  • Air ratchet
  • Sandblaster
  • Jackhammer
  • Pneumatic jack
  • Air-powered nail gun
  • Paint sprayer
  • Pneumatic angle grinder

These are just some of the most widely-used Air Tools; there are many others being used on construction sites all over the world.

What do Air Tools do?

As you can see from the list above, many common tools have pneumatic counterparts. An airbrush can do many of the same things a traditional paintbrush can and with greater speed and accuracy. A pneumatic nail gun can drive a nail into wood in a fraction of a second. Air Tools can do almost all of the same jobs that hand held tools can and many things they can’t.

How do Air Tools Work?

Air Tools are powered by a tank of compressed gas (such as carbon dioxide) or compressed air (a mixture of more than one gas). The air is passed through a hose into the tool where it is held until the action is triggered by the user. Once the action is triggered, the pressured air activates the tool’s internal mechanism. A pneumatic hammer will drive a nail and a sandblaster will begin spraying.

The passage of air from the tank to the tool is regulated by a series of valves. These valves are essential because they moderate the amount of air passing into the tool. If too much air is present there is a risk of equipment damage and if there is too little, then the tool won’t function correctly. There is often a gauge present in addition to the valve to show the operator exactly how much air pressure is present.

Once the Air Tool is connected to the gas source and the air pressure has reached the correct level, the tool can be used; under normal operating conditions this will occur almost instantly so there’s no waiting on your part. The operator must use a trigger, button, or switch to begin the tool’s action. Precisely controlling the action of the tool allows the operator to execute very detailed work.

Why are Air Tools Needed?

Because Air Tools deliver high performance without slowing down, they are an indispensable part of any modern construction site. Even home DIY enthusiasts have embraced lightweight, affordable air tools.

If you’d like to try air tools for yourself, but aren’t aren’t ready to invest in a set of your own, consider renting the items you need. Many home improvement centers and industrial supply companies, including GTI, are happy to rent equipment to customers..

Beam Trolleys

Beam Trolleys

Why You Need A Beam Trolley

A beam trolley is a piece of equipment that makes lifting and moving heavy loads easier. It allows heavy materials to be moved safely without the risk of injury to personnel trying to lift it themselves. It is used heavily in the construction and production industries and can often be seen in use in commercial and maintenance settings. One place where it is used a lot is in factories that contain assembly lines. The beam trolley can transport items along the line quickly and easily without taking up a lot of floor space in the factory.

There are a variety of different types of beam trolleys. Each type works a little bit differently, but they all are used to lift and move loads from one place to another.

  • Non-Powered Beam Trolley: These trolleys rely on manual labor to transport loads. They are an attractive option for people looking for a trolley that is less expensive. They are usually fairly light weight and can be easily transported from place to place. There are a few different varieties of non-powered beam trolleys available on the market today. The most common types are listed below.
  • Push and Geared Travel Beam Trolleys: These trolleys contain points which can be anchored to a beam and suspended. They feature hooks that carry the load across the length of the beam. A hand operated chain is attached to the trolley and moves it across the beam. Its mechanism works a lot like the one employed in venetian blinds in that pulling and pushing on the chain moves the trolley. These types of trolleys are adjustable; some even have certain pivoting options available.
  • Wheel Guard, Anti Drop Plate Beam Trolleys: These trolleys are light weight, easy to operate and mobile. They work especially well in maintenance applications for reaching the high corners of a skyscraper. They are adjustable, allowing them to fit any width of beam. Because they do not require separate tools for installation, they are extremely convenient. There are models that are light-weight, making them ideal for use in residential and workshop settings.
  • Electric Travel Beam Trolleys: This type of trolley does not require any manual handling in order to operate. The operator simply sets the speed and other specifications and lets the trolley do the rest. These are especially useful in areas that may pose a safety hazard to personnel such as in refineries or other areas where harsh chemicals are used. Another industry where they are used is in butcher shops. Stacks of meat are moved along the line by beam trolleys at fixed time intervals. The time is set so that the chopper has time to process each piece of meat.

No matter the type of beam trolley, they all make lifting and moving heavy items easier. They can be used for a variety of different applications and can really serve to speed up production. If you are in need of a beam trolley, consider renting one from us. We are happy to outfit you with one that will fit your needs. Contact us today to discuss your options.

Beveling Machines

Beveling Machines

beveling-machines


Beveling machines provide an essential function at industrial sites because they can prepare pipes for welding and also increase safety by smoothing the rough and sharp edges. Using a machine for the job will create a cleaner, more consistent beveling of the pipe versus the more inconsistent process of using a hand grinding tool.

So you may be wondering what exactly is pipe beveling? Pipe beveling is the process of cutting an angle into the end of a pipe. The angle is typically small, usually between about 30-37.5 degrees for a steel pipe. For a PVC pipe the angle is even smaller, typically about 15 degrees. The cutting of this angle is accomplished through the use of a beveling machine.

There are many different ways to bevel a pipe and many different pieces of equipment associated with each. The process can be done slowly and painstakingly by hand using a file, or it can be done through the use of a handheld grinder. The fastest and easiest way to bevel a pipe is by using a fully automated pipe beveling machine. The end of the pipe is inserted into the machine, the desired angle and depth are set up, and then the machine automatically bevels the pipe accordingly.

There are several different reasons for making the decision to bevel a pipe. For instance beveling the pipes first helps when they will subsequently be welded. It is also helpful for attaching couplings to the ends of the pipes to join them together. Beveling is also commonly done for safety reasons and because of even because of considerations such as aesthetics.

Once the decision has been made to bevel the pipe the choice of whether or not to do it manually or with an automated machine comes into play. Manual beveling may have useful applications in some instances, but very often there are many advantages to using a beveling machine instead. For instance automated beveling techniques are typically much faster, easier, and yields more consistent, precise results. Using a beveling machine is also typically safer for the operator than doing the process by hand because the metal shavings are contained within the machine. The handheld machinery typically used for manual beveling can be considerably dangerous if accidents or mistakes occur.

If you find your own industrial project in need of some good quality beveling machines make sure to give us a call for rates and other information. We offer a variety of different beveling machines and stock several pieces to ensure that we can fill your order quickly and efficiently. Our rates are also very affordable and our rental specialists are helpful and knowledgeable. We can deliver the equipment to you and even show you how to use it when necessary.

Chain Hoists and Come-Alongs

Chain Hoists and Come-Alongs

Chain Hoists and Come-Alongs


When it comes to lifting large, heavy objects a chain hoist is one piece of equipment that you definitely don’t want to be without. Chain hoists are small, portable hoists used to lift large loads or heavy objects. These indispensable tools use the basic principles of a pulley system to change the amount of tension in the lifting chain. This reduces the amount of force the operator needs to exert, making it easy to raise an object that would otherwise be impossible to lift. In other words: it makes you stronger. Here’s how it works.

A lever or an operating chain is used to activate a lifting chain which is looped through a pulley that is attached to a stationary overhead point such as a rafter or a beam. A hook is then used to secure the object that needs to be lifted; a chain is often wrapped around the load for added safety as well. Chain hoists rated for smaller loads may be manually operated, while those rated for heavier load capacities are often operated electrically or pneumatically. Some styles may also include a mechanical load brake. This gives the operator better control when lifting objects.

Chain hoists are commonly used in auto repair shops. They enable the mechanics to quickly and easily lift engines out of vehicles so that motor be repaired more efficiently. Sometimes it is necessary to get the engine out of the way in order to replace other parts under the hood. Many do-it-yourselfers also utilize chain hoists to perform repairs on their vehicle at home. Chain hoists can also be mounted to the rafters in a storage shed or garage to lift small boats. This makes it more convenient to perform seasonal maintenance on boats or perform small repairs to the bottom of the boat.

Chain hoists are sometimes referred to as come-a-longs because they can also be used to pull joints together or move a heavy load from one point to another. They are very useful in construction and industrial applications. For example, the frame of a house can be pulled together while being raised using a chain hoist or come-a long. Machinery can be moved from one side of an industrial warehouse, woodworking worship or other large space to another. Come-a-longs are frequently used to move boats and cars as well.

Using a chain hoist will enable you to lift and move heavy objects quickly, easily and safely. As with any type of equipment, you will want to exercise caution when using a chain hoist or come-a-long. Don’t ever try to lift or pull anything that weighs more than the load size capacity that the chain hoist is rated for. This can result in a failure of the lifting chain and can result in damage to the load or serious injury to the operator. Also, no one should ever stand underneath the chain hoist for any reason. Proper use and execution of a chain hoist will make jobs more efficient and save you significant time and effort. We are pleased to rent chain hoists and come-a-longs to our customers to help with whatever task is at hand..

Compaction Equipment

Compaction Equipment

Compaction Equipment


Compaction equipment is a compression tool used on various types of material on a construction site, roadway or landfill project. It can also be used to compact and dispose waste or compress loose soil before starting the actual construction project. However, this equipment is most commonly used to compress loose soil. Therefore, your equipment selection for a more effective job should be based on the type of soil that you are working with. You should understand that all soil types are not the same. They vary and have distinctive characteristics. You have to categorize the soil material according to the grain size. There are three primary soil categories to consider when selecting the most suitable tool:

  • Granular
  • Organic
  • Cohesive
  • Semi-cohesive

For the cohesive type of soil, the grain is smaller in size and very tightly bound so it requires less force from your selected equipment. In contrast, the granular type of soil has large grains and is more spaced out so you will need a more forcible equipment to get the job done. There are different types of compaction equipment and these include:

  • Rollers
  • Sheep’s Foot
  • Vibratory Plate
  • Forward Plate
  • Rammers or Jumping Jack Tamps
  • Reverse Plate

The Tandem Vibratory Roller is used for:

  • Driveways
  • Parking Lots
  • Municipal Work
  • Sidewalks
  • City Streets
  • Secondary Roads
  • Backfill
  • Trench
  • Edges
  • Building Foundations


Rammer

This equipment is used by many contractors. It is high powered and the most effective on cohesive types of soil. Its frequency range is approximately 500 – 700 blows for each minute and offers a high level of condensation. It usually has a small diesel engine and used in 3 compaction procedures that include kneading, vibration and impact.

Forward Plate

The Forward Plate is high in frequency and low in amplitude. It is generally used on granular soils and works with a gasoline powered engine that operates at a very high speed and force. Its frequency range is approximately 2500 – 6000 vibrations for each minute.

Reverse Plate

The Reverse Plate is fitted with two eccentric plates. This allows for an even transition between the forward and reversible travel to result in an increase in force because of the combination of the two eccentric weights. This tool is used to work on semi-cohesive soil types because of its weight and forcefulness. In contrast, this machine is different from the forward plate because it can be stopped during the course of its operation for spot compaction.

Rollers

There are several types of Rollers that are primarily used to compress the soil on road construction. The most common ones used are the ride-on and walk-behind rollers.

Conclusion

For the most successful compaction, it is highly suggested that you examine the soil and get the most suitable equipment for the specific type of soil that you are working on. It is recommended that you select the largest machine and the general selection is a 50,000 pound machine, which is able to handle as much as 500 tons each day. For a larger machine such as an 80,000 pound machine, it can handle up to 1250 tons each day.

Compaction equipment can be reasonably priced if you purchase from a reputable company. You also have the option to rent one or more of this equipment to save on cost and to work it into your budget more effectively..

Concrete Equipment

Concrete Equipment

Selecting the right concrete equipment for your particular project can be quite a challenge. The enormous number of manufacturers, types of equipment and varying features can result in uncertainty as to which one to choose. You can look around your local area to find the one that is best, but here is some general information that will get you started.

The Rammer

This tool distributes a high powered force in amplitude, which makes it an exceptional tool for using on cohesive soils. Its frequency range goes up to 750 blows per minute and its force of compaction comes from its four cycle engine; gasoline or diesel, which powers the enormous piston set using its two spring sets. As the equipment jumps, it has a forward angle incline for forward travel. Rammers that use diesel engines are ideal for heavy duty projects.

There are three distinct types of compaction with this equipment that includes:

  • Impact
  • Vibration
  • Kneading

Vibratory Plate Compactors

These have lower amplitude, but a high enough frequency to work on granular soils as well as asphalt. It is driven by either a gasoline or diesel engine at great speed at a forceful compaction rate. The generated compaction force will be high depending on how heavy the plates are. The subsequent vibrations result in a forward motion, which is branded as a One Way Plate Compactor.

Vibratory Rollers

These come in various categories, which also include the walk-behind and the ride-on. However, they are ultimately broken down into other categories that include:

  • Smooth Drum
  • Rubber-tired Models
  • Padded Drum
  • Dual Steel

The smooth drum equipment is ideal for using on soil as well as asphalt. The dual steel drums are fixed on a firm frame and the vibration comes from the eccentric shafts that are located in the drums or on the frame. Padded or trench rollers are used for excavation projects as well as work done in trenches. The Rubber-tire model tends to be static and the force of compaction changes when weight is added or removed.

Concrete Mixers

A concrete mixer is used to mix concrete. This machine goes through several phases; loading, discharge, mixing and unloading. For the best results, choose a concrete mix that has key features and benefits. You want to use something that is reliable and has low maintenance for longer shelf life.

Hydraulic Concrete Breakers

It is better to use the hydraulic concrete breaker than the pneumatic one because of its cost effectiveness. It is also easy to transport and provides superior ergonomics. The power packs are matched with dependable engines and can be used to power up a wide range of tools at the fraction of the cost.

Walk-Behind Power Trowels

To choose a walk-behind power trowel, the area that you want to cover has to be considered. You also need to think about the type of concrete mix you are using, the climate conditions and any obstacles that you may encounter such as a narrow doorway. Here are some suggestions to choosing the right tool:

  • Trowel with a 24-inch diameter: is perfect to finish edges and small doorways
  • Trowel with a 30-inch diameter: is multipurpose and offers the best coverage, yet is sufficiently compacted to fit through any doorway
  • Trowel with a 36-inch diameter: provides enough coverage to use on all kinds of floors

Choosing the right machine or equipment to do concrete work is essential to achieving the best results. You can do your own research to find the one to fit your desired project. You can also get referrals from friends or family members. In the end, you have to make the right choice..

Conduit Benders

Conduit Benders

All aspects of the construction process require precision. Everything from calculating supply amounts to the placement of materials has to be carefully planned and executed. That’s why it’s so important to use tools that help you achieve the most precise results possible. Conduit benders are deceptively simple items that are actually a vital part of any major construction project. Because conduits are vital to a building’s electrical system, it’s important that installers accurately shape each portion of conduit to accurate angles. A conduit bender makes it possible to execute perfect 90 degree stub-up, offset, back to back, three point saddle bends, and more.

Conduit Bender Basics

A conduit bender is a handheld tool a little more than a yard in length. The bender itself is a carefully shaped piece of curved metal placed on the end of the handle. This metal head bends the conduit into the correct shape while the user controls the process with the handle. Conduit benders often feature clearly marked angles on the bender head; this provides the user with an easy visual guide to refer to when they’re working. On one end of the bender head is a curved channel and on the other is a flat shelf. The channel is where the straight conduit will be placed when you’re preparing to make a bend; you’ll place your foot on the shelf to provide the power necessary to shape the metal.

Shaping Conduit With a Bender

To use a bender, first pass a length of conduit of the appropriate width through the channel on the head. The bender’s handle will be at an angle to the straight conduit. Grasp the handle and place your foot on the shelf on the opposite end of the head. Apply appropriate pressure and guide the handle through the bend. The marks on the head will help you spot when the curve has reached the correct position. If necessary, check the angle with a level before installing.

Shopping for a Bender

When you’re shopping for a bender you’ll need to take a close look at the product specifications on the package. Because consistency and accuracy are so important to electrical work, conduit benders come in a range of sizes that accommodate all standard conduit widths. The nature of the conduit bender doesn’t allow for one head to be used on conduit of any other size. Instead, it’s possible to buy bender heads separate from the handles so an interchangeable tool is created for less than the cost of purchasing an entirely new item.

Handheld conduit benders are reasonably priced and cost anywhere from around $30 – $80, depending on whether you purchase the bender head by itself or a unit that includes the long handle. Electronic benders exist and can cost several thousand dollars. These have the advantage of repeatedly bending extensive lengths of conduit with perfect accuracy every time. However, unless you’re likely to be installing a considerable amount of electrical conduit on a regular basis, a handheld bender will be adequate to your needs.

If you need a conduit bender for a single project, consider renting one instead. GTI has benders in every size and will be happy to assist you in choosing the one that’s right for your project..

Cranes

Cranes

Cranes


Since its earliest appearance in Ancient Greece and Rome, the crane has been indispensable in helping work crews construct buildings, bridges, and other structures. These machines allow people to lower and raise objects of various weights in addition to transporting them horizontally around a work zone. Understanding how these machines work can help you more clearly discern what this amazing mechanism can allow you to do.

What Cranes Can Do

These machines are capable of lifting objects weighing thousands of pounds several stories high. Considering the scope of many of today’s quotidian structures—such as massive skyscrapers and waterway spanning bridges—this fact is more than just informational. Because a crane’s almost unbelievable ability to lift and move extremely heavy objects, hoisting steel beams to the tops of a building is not a problem. Take, for an example, the tower crane, which is commonly used for large building construction. These cranes can typically reach heights of 230 feet (approximately 23 stories) with loads weighing as much as 39,000 pounds.

How Cranes Work

Cranes are an ingenious combination of many simple machines, but to understand how they work, it’s helpful to become familiar with a few terms. The jib refers to the weight bearing portion of the machine—the arm if you will. The amount of force amplification that the machine gives is called mechanical advantage. In other words, in order for cranes to be viable tools, they must provide enough mechanical advantage to allow the user to lift more weight without drastically increasing the amount of force being used.

Cranes use one or more of the following simple machines to gain mechanical advantage: Levers, used in balance-style cranes, allow the machine to lift heavier objects with less force by utilizing a fulcrum. The fulcrum is a fixed point around which the jib rotates. Loads attached to the shorter end of the crane’s arm can be lifted when a small amount of force is applied to the longer end of the arm in the opposing direction. Pulleys use cables to transfer force when the cables are wound around a fixed block and a block closer to the load. Hydraulic cylinders can be used to apply force to the load directly or to move the jib that is attached to a different carrying mechanism.

Why Cranes Are Necessary

Without the use of cranes, there would simply be no effective way to lift extremely heavy objects. Because cranes carry mechanical advantage—they allow for objects to be lifted by smaller forces—the problem of finding feasible ways to move many loads has been solved, allowing engineers more freedom when they are designing a structure. Construction projects that use heavy materials also often make for more stable structures that will last longer and that can withstand more extreme conditions.

Cranes make it possible for people to build the structures that make everyday life more convenient and centralized, helping us master the forces around us instead of being oppressed by them. Because of their simple mechanisms such as levers and pulleys, you can lift heavy objects higher with a crane so that your construction project becomes reality. That’s why we are pleased to offer you the option of crane rental. Talk with a company representative today to learn more and see how easy it is to rent cranes for your work site..

Earth Moving Equipment

Earth Moving Equipment

Earth Moving Equipment


In order for many construction projects to get off the ground, excavation is usually necessary so that buildings can have a solid foundation. Earth moving equipment is the most effective way for construction crews to prepare a site for a building because they help workers move much more earth in a shorter amount of time than workers would be able to do without them. Check out this handy guide to earth moving equipment to learn more.

The Capabilities of Earth Moving Equipment

Earth moving equipment, also known as earth movers and heavy machinery, allows you to dig out an area quickly and efficiently. Before earth moving machine technology was harnessed, the tool most commonly used to for excavation and earth moving was the shovel, plain and simple. So, say a working man in good physical condition could dig out a 5×5 hole in two to three hours. That means it would take one man eight to twelve hours to dig a hundred square feet—that is if he takes no breaks and is capable of digging at a consistent pace for the entire time. By contrast, one backhoe loader, depending on its size, could dig up to 14 feet in a single scoop, with a more than 6,000 pound carrying capacity, resulting in a much faster pace of work that requires the efforts of fewer workers.

How Earth Movers Work

The challenge for all earth moving machines is this: how can one work with basic physics to get more work done without increasing the amount of force being used? Increasing the ratio of input to output without increasing force is known as gaining mechanical advantage. In the example of the man digging above, there is little room for mechanical advantage when it comes to shoveling dirt. In order for people to be able to move more earth without increasing the amount of force being applied, an outside power source is required.

For today’s machines, this power is supplied mainly by hydraulic drives. These devices allow a small amount of force to be multiplied into a larger force through the use of hydraulic cylinders, which can give pushing forces exponential in size through linear strokes compared to the initial force used. The result is all kinds of excavators, back hoes, diggers, and even tunnel borers that are capable of displacing large amounts of dirt much faster than before.

The Necessity of Earth Moving Equipment

As you are probably starting to guess, without earth moving equipment, the digging required to prepare a site for construction would take a long time. Depending on the ease of digging, it might not even be possible in areas where the ground is especially hard or rocky. Because foundations are a necessary part of building safe and stable structures in many areas, earth moving equipment is necessary.

Preparing your site for construction is easier and much more efficient when you have the power earth moving equipment provides you with. With the right machines, you can move larger volumes of earth in shorter periods of time so that you can complete construction projects on time and keep clients happy. Because we understand how useful and important these machines can be, we are happy to offer earth moving equipment for rent to our customers..

Electric Tools

Electric Tools

Electric tools play an important role in many industries. Generally people consider construction trades as the main users of power tools, but they come in handy for every day household projects and home repairs that range in from simple to complex. Nail guns, screwdrivers, saws, drills, and sanders are all examples of power tools that can be plugged in to an electrical outlet. The electricity provides the tool with power making work a lot quicker, and the finish more professional than tools that are not electric. Power tools can also be battery operated so you don’t have a cord to contend with, but usually you sacrifice a significant amount of power for the convenience of a cordless tool.

What Electric Tools Do

Electric and manual tools perform the same functions. Each tool has a particular use and can come in handy for a variety of tasks. A nail gun, for example is used to install nails. The benefit to using a nail gun over a hammer is that it takes a simple squeeze of the trigger to secure the nail in place. If you’re using a hammer you would first have to position the nail, tap it in to place, and then pound it in the rest of the way. With a nail gun you position the gun over the area that you wish to nail and then squeeze the trigger. That’s it. It’s quick, efficient, and fun to use.

In addition to providing faster completion time on projects, a power tool can also produce more professional results. If, for example, you were to use a nail gun to build a wooden fence, not only would build time be significantly quicker but the finished product would appear more uniform and attractive. Instead of having a few nails here and there that were bent and folded down into the wood because you had to manually pound each one in yourself, the nail gun would provide precision insertion with little effort and fewer errors.

How Electric Tools Work

An electrical outlet must be supplied in order for an electrical power tool to work. Simply plug the cord into an outlet and the electrical power that is supplied with cause the tool to operate. As mentioned above, there are battery operated power tools but the power supplied from a battery just isn’t as forceful an electrical source. The power tool would still function and would probably get the job done, but it might not be as professional looking or as quick.

Why Electric Tools Are Needed

Tools have come a long way. Rudimentary tools that were used anciently might be unrecognizable for many folks today, especially when they are compared to electric power tools. A power tool is almost a necessity nowadays, particularly if you’re working on a big project. Hammering individual shingles in a roof can be done so much faster with a nail gun. Commercial companies that perform roofing services need to have electric tools in order to complete jobs in a timely manner and to keep up with competition.

Electric Tools Can Make Work Easier

Power tools can make it easier to complete a job. While they perform the same basic function as non-power tools, they make it possible to complete the job in a lot less time and with more professional looking results. They are a necessity for commercial construction companies in order to stay on schedule and within budget. If you’re not looking to purchase electric tools anytime soon, companies that offer tool rental are happy to lease them..

Generators

Generators

A generator is a device that can be used to supply an electrical current even when there is a power outage. Before voltage inverters were invented, the power source came from DC or AC service. Today a generator provides electricity from an internal combustion engine that runs on diesel oil or gasoline. The motor can also be powered by water falling from a stream (hydro-electric power), or by steam that is heated to extremely high temperatures.

What a Generator Does

A generator supplies electrical power in the event of a power outage. It can provide electricity so basic needs can be met. If you take time to think about it, our homes and buildings are equipped with some pretty sophisticated electronic equipment, including appliances, security systems, and office equipment. But what happens when the power goes out? All of these devices that we have become so dependent on shut down and we become prisoners of our own home or offices.

In a home setting, a generator can provide the peace of mind that there will always be a source of power even when natural disasters strike and power lines cannot transmit electricity. Many households are looking in to the purchase of backup generators for emergency needs. They can be particularly essential if you live in a home with elderly parents or young children, if you have a small home based business that needs to run without disruption, or if you have a medical need that uses an electrical power source and it cannot be interrupted.

How a Generator Works

How a generator works really depends on the kind of generator that you purchase or rent. Some have internal combustion engines, and they require a fuel source like diesel, propane, or gasoline in order to make the motor turn. They can be started in a way similar to starting a lawn mower by following these steps: 1. Fill the fuel tank
2. Open the fuel valve
3. Find the partial choke and activate it
4. Pull the recoiling rope
5. Allow the generator to run for a few minutes
6. Position the choke to “off”
7. Insert power cords into the generator outlets

Some generators have an electric start and firing it up may be a little different to the method outlined above. If you have any questions, be certain to refer to your owner’s manual for guidance.

Why Might I Need a Generator

Many people regard a generator as an emergency preparedness item, something to provide power in the event of a failure in the provision of utilities. It can be an essential item particularly for homes with individuals who have medical needs and they depend on electricity to supply those needs. If there are power outages in the heat of the summer both the elderly and young populations can really suffer. A generator can provide the security that no one in your household would have to suffer from interruptions in electricity. If you are in the construction business, a generator can also be useful.

How to Access a Generator

A generator can give you the peace of mind that you will always have a power source even in a natural disaster. Some individuals go and purchase them outright, but if you’re holding on to your cash there are still options available. Taking a trip to the tool rental shop is one way that you can access a generator. They are available for rent, so if you have generator needs don’t hesitate to stop by..

Hoses and Hose Fittings

Hoses and Hose Fittings

One of the absolute most basic pieces of equipment at any industrial site is the hose and the various hose fittings. In fact these items are so common and basic that many people don’t even think about them when they consider equipment. It’s very easy for the hose and hose fittings to merely disappear into the background and be forgotten. However, hoses and good hose fittings have a crucial role to play in most industrial settings and it would be a mistake to discount their importance.

Hose Fittings


The Purpose

At its most basic, the purpose of a hose is to transfer one flowing substance from an original point to a new destination. If the substance needs to flow through multiple hoses, or from a piece of machinery into a hose then that is where hose fittings come into place. Hose fittings are designed to ensure that there is a good connection between two hoses or between the hose and piece of machinery or other chamber. Having a good hose fitting will prevent leakage and ensure that a correct, steady pressure is maintained.

While that is the most basic definition of a hose and hose fitting the specifics can vary quite a bit based on the particulars involved. For instance a hose may be used to transfer a huge range of different things, including both liquids and gases. A hose will be an integral part of many different pumps and compressors and will also be present in most types of engines. The hose fittings will be used around these hoses and equipment to ensure that a good connection is made and that no leakage will occur.

The Uses

Hoses are used for a wide number of different pressures. Some hoses are designed to have a very high pressure substance flowing through them while others are made for low or medium pressure. In all cases it is essential that the hose does not crack or burst and that it allows the flow of substance at the proper pressure. Many hoses will also be designed to allow the substance to change pressures. Having the proper hose fitting is essential in these types of situations because the hoses must stay attached even if the pressure is increased. That makes the job of the hose fitting all the more important. The hose fitting itself must also be able to survive and retain its working integrity in the setting in which it is used. For example it shouldn’t rust or crack as a result of weather conditions.

How GTI Rental Can Help

Having the proper hose for your task is one of the most important parts of safety and effective operations. Not all hoses can withstand all types of substances and pressures and using the wrong hose or using a hose that needs to be replaced can lead to a very hazardous situation. By the same token using the incorrect hose fitting, or using a hose fitting that is worn out can also yield dangerous, or at the very least sub par results. That is why GTI is so pleased to be able to supply our customers with a huge range of various, high quality hoses and hose fittings..

Hydraulic Marine Tools

Hydraulic Marine Tools

Hydraulic tools are extremely popular and pervasive in industrial settings because they are so effective and powerful. A hydraulic tool is one that is powered by liquid power. It is in direct contrast to pneumatic tools which are powered by air. People rely on hydraulic tools to perform a wide variety of very important industrial functions and they are also the tool of choice for many underwater, marine projects.

An hydraulic marine tool is simply an hydraulic tool which is used for underwater purposes. These types of tools can include things like drills, pumps, grinders, saws, and an array of other categories. Many people are surprised by the diversity of these categories and often wouldn’t expect them all to be able to operate in a similar manner. However, not only do hydraulic tools exist for all these options, hydraulic tools are an extremely good choice for these marine jobs because they are so powerful and they hold up well and function normally in underwater settings. Frequently hydraulic tools are a much better option for marine projects than any other type of tool.

Hydraulic tools work through the principle that force applied to one point in the system will travel through the liquid and be applied to another point in the system. A series of cylinders and hoses allows the flow of the liquid and the resulting force. The force itself can be manipulated and greatly increased through altering the size of the cylinders, chambers, and hoses, and their relative positions to each other. This makes hydraulic tools extremely powerful and efficient. Marine hydraulic tools work under the same principles but are designed to do so underwater.

The application of hydraulic tools to underwater, marine settings is extremely important and beneficial because underwater operations become inherently more difficult and potentially dangerous. With an underwater project it is much more difficult for workers to access the site and to do so with the same dexterity and flexibility that they would enjoy above the water’s surface. In addition the water pressure, marine life, and the chemical processes of the water itself make the environment more hostile to effective operation. That is why hydraulic tools which retain their integrity and power, even underwater, are so crucial to so many industrial work sites.

GTI is very pleased to offer a wide variety of different hydraulic marine tools for rental to our customers. We also keep our inventory well-stocked and we make it a point to have an array of different options because we know that it isn’t always easy to anticipate exactly what will be needed and we never want our customers to have to do without or to have to wait for a long period of time for a tool to become available. Please contact our rental specialists for more information..

Hydraulic Torque Wrenches

Hydraulic Torque Wrenches

The hydraulic torque wrench has truly revolutionized the way large bolts are handled at the industrial level. This extremely useful and popular tool is designed to deliver a predetermined amount of torque to a nut with a properly lubricated fastener. They offer many advantages in terms of accuracy and performance and they are an indispensable part of many industrial tool kits.

The hydraulic torque wrench was first introduced in the 1960s. It was invented by George A. Sturdevant in Houston, Texas. Since that first, early model the hydraulic torque wrench has undergone quite a few changes and advancements. It has continued to evolve in ability, style, and function, making it an even more valuable and useful tool than its earliest predecessor. Today’s wrenches are smaller and lighter weight which makes them more effective in a number of different settings which might involve limited space or more delicate surfaces and structures. n addition to the weight and size advancements, the technology has also evolved to allow the operation of multiple tools from a single power pack. This greatly improves the speed and efficiency with which a job can get done. Plus today’s hydraulic torque wrench is able to swivel a full 360 degrees which gives it an amazing range of motion.

A hydraulic torque wrench is defined as a wrench which applies torque using only hydraulic power and which must be self ratcheting. In addition to these criteria the torque wrench must also have the ability to accurately determine the amount of torque applied to the bolt. This power and accuracy gives the hydraulic torque wrench a strong advantage over many other tools. It is also much quieter to operate than a pneumatic impact wrench which would be capable of delivering a similar amount of torque. This added benefit helps keep noise pollution down which is great if the work is being done at a business or residential site. Even if the work is being done at a regular industrial site the added quiet helps cut down on some of the noise pollution present and makes for a more pleasant work environment. In addition to being quieter than the pneumatic impact wrench it is also lighter weight.

Hydraulic torque wrenches are extremely accurate tools and typically function within a 3% range of precision. This accuracy and precision makes them a great choice for jobs that require consistent, repeated results. This gives them a distinct advantage in industrial settings because that precision and accuracy is highly desirable and it is often very essential that the outcome be highly similar across all bolts.

Here at GTI we are very pleased to have hydraulic torque wrenches available in our inventory of rental equipment. These rental wrenches are a huge advantage to our customers because it avoids the necessity of having to purchase the expensive tool as well as store and maintain it. We feel that our customers can greatly benefit from this convenience and we are always available to answer any additional questions or address other concerns that you may have in regards to the hydraulic torque wrench..

Impacts

Impacts

The impact or impact wrench is a very common type of industrial tool. In addition to the names already listed it may also be called the impactor, an air wrench, an air gun, a rattle gun, a torque gun, or a windy gun. Regardless of its name, this tool refers to a socket wrench power tool that is designed to deliver a high amount of torque with minimal exertion by the user. This is accomplished by the device storing kinetic energy in a rotating mass which is then suddenly delivered to the target. This useful tool is seen very frequently in industrial settings and provides a very valuable service.

The impact wrench can use a number of different power sources with the most common being compressed air. However, electric or hydraulic power is also frequently seen and in recent times cordless electric impact wrench have become increasingly popular. Impact wrenches are available in a full range of standard sizes and generally can be used for jobs requiring nuts and bolts as small as 1/4’’ up to as large as 3.5’. The tool acquires the kinetic energy it uses by rotating a mass within the tool. When the energy is abruptly discharged this results in a high impact torque being applied to its target. Typically the target will be a nut, bolt, or screw and by absorbing the delivered energy the target will be tightened or loosened as desired.

This tool comes in a wide variety of options and in addition to being available in a full range of sizes it can also be seen in several different styles. One of the most common styles is the “pistol grip” although “inline” and “butterfly” options are also frequently seen. As stated above the impact wrench may also use a come as a pneumatic tool, hydraulic tool, or electric tool. The different styles and power sources all come with their own unique advantages and disadvantages in terms of weight, maneuverability, power, noise, and comfort. Many users also have their own personal preferences which they may feel outweighs small advantages or disadvantages.

The main reason that impact tools are so popular, however, is the same regardless of which type of impact tool is being discussed. For the most part the impact tool is designed to offer an effective delivery of force while saving the tool operator energy and force. In other words the impact wrench is specifically designed to make work easier when it comes to fastening or unfastening nuts, bolts, or screws. The impact wrench is extremely well suited to this task and for that reason it is one of the most popular and pervasive tools seen in any worker’s arsenal of tools.

We are very pleased to offer the impact wrench for rental to our customers. We have a wide variety of different impact wrench options to ensure that you and your team can get the best tool for the job. We also keep our inventory well stocked and well maintained to ensure that the tool is available when you need it and that it arrives to you in good condition..

Industrial Air Conditioning

Industrial Air Conditioning

When people think of an industrial work site it is likely that the images that come to mind include a dusty or fume-filled area that is also very warm, or even downright hot. Of course industrial work sites need not been uncomfortable, unpleasant places, but there is some truth in this mental image due to all the heavy machinery being operated and the dust and debris being stirred around. That is why industrial air conditioners are such an important piece of equipment to have on hand in work sites.

An air conditioner is designed to keep humidity levels stable – either humidifying or dehumidifying as needed – while also removing dust and debris from the air. In addition to these important functions one of the most commonly understood and most frequently thought of purposes of an air conditioner is to cool the room or area and make it more comfortable for the people present. These services are never more important than they are when it comes to an industrial setting precisely because these settings can get so hot, dusty, humid, or dry, so fast thanks to all the equipment being run and work being done.

An air conditioner works by moving air over cooling coils. These coils contain liquid coolant and as the air circulates around them it is cooled. In turn the coils absorb some of the heat from the air, and as a result the liquid coolant changes to a gas state. The coolant gas then moves through the coils to the air conditioner’s compressor where it is once again cooled into a liquid form. While the gas coolant moves to the compressor, more liquid coolant travels through the coils to replace the displaced gas coolant, thereby creating a stable system. The air conditioner’s output is measured in tons and this is actually a term and measurement which derives from the early days of room cooling in which ton blocks of ice was used to cool a room. In this way it is similar to the term ‘horse power’ in cars which refers to how many horses could generate the amount of power being discussed.

An industrial air conditioner will have a much larger ton load output than a smaller, home air conditioner. This will in turn mean that it can effectively cool a larger, hotter area. This is extremely important to keep workers from becoming overheated. As mentioned above the air conditioner will also remove many unwanted materials from the air which will in turn make it more pleasant and safer to breathe. The cooling and dust removal done by an industrial air conditioner is even likely to benefit the equipment present in the site because it will help prevent the equipment from becoming overheated and will also help prevent it from becoming clogged by dust and debris.

GTI is very pleased to offer industrial air conditioner rental to our customers as a service. Thus industrial air conditioners can be rented in peak summer time conditions or when a big project must be undertaken quickly, and then can be returned without the unnecessary expense of outright buying and storing these units. We keep our air conditioners in excellent condition to ensure maximum performance and efficiency. Please contact our rental specialists for more information..

Manlifts

Manlifts

The manlift is an essential piece of equipment at many work sites. It is designed to efficiently and safely raise and lower people from level to another. This may seem like a basic task, but it considerably saves on the time and energy that would be expended using a traditional ladder. This is especially true if the work being done requires frequent ascents and descents. Since we understand how helpful this item can been to our customers we are pleased to be able to offer it as one of our equipment rental options.

The manlift consists of a vertical piece of equipment that is placed near the various landings that will be ascended or descended by workers and other visitors to the worksite. The machine powers a revolving belt with handles and platforms attached to it. When someone wishes to go to a different level they simply step onto the platform and hold on to the handles for safety. The hoist is designed to rotate at speeds that can safely be maintained while people step on and off of the machine.

Since the manlift equipment consists of many motorized moving parts proper safety and maintenance are very important. It is essential to make sure that the machine is properly lubricated and that all of the moving parts are safely secured. Furthermore people riding the manlift should always face the belt and only one person should ride on each platform. Following these safety precautions will ensure that no accidents occur and that the manlift remains in good condition.

As stated before the manlift saves quite a bit on the time and energy of the workers. This is especially true for long ascents that need to be made frequently and particularly if the person riding the manlift is also carrying or wearing a lot of tools and equipment. It is much easier on people to ride the manlift than to use a ladder and of course it is more practical to install and use than any kind of temporary stairs or elevator.

Here at GTI we make rental of the manlift as easy and economical as possible. We also make sure that all of our machines are safe, well-maintained, and in great condition. We can also get them to your worksite quickly. Please contact us for rates and other information regarding the rental of this vital piece of equipment. .

The Power Of A Mini-Excavator

Don’t let the “mini” in the name mini-excavator fool you. These machines still pack a big punch despite their small size. They look and operate much like their regular-sized counterparts, but on a smaller scale. This article will discuss some of the key features of mini-excavators and the advantages of using one on your next project.

What is a Mini-Excavator?

A mini-excavator is a piece of machinery that is used to dig up dirt, soil and rocks. It is used heavily in construction and farming projects. From digging ditches to general landscaping, this little machine can do it all. It is particularly well suited for digging trenches for pipes and cables and digging foundations for building extensions.

Parts of a Mini-Excavator

There are a variety of parts available that attach to the mini-excavator in order to handle different jobs. Many models are designed so that the attachments can be fastened to the machine quickly and with little effort. They slip right into position and are locked in place using pins. There are no tools required. Some of the most common attachments include buckets, forks, backhoes and box rakes. These parts come in a variety of different styles for specialized jobs, but you can also find ones that are for multipurpose use.

Advantages of Using a Mini Excavator

  • Ability to Work in a Small Area: The main advantage of using mini excavators is their small size. They can fit into tight spaces that a regular sized excavator cannot. For example, if you are interested in making a small fish pond in your yard, a regular excavator might be a bit of an overkill. Besides that, it might not fit though your fence into your backyard. Because of its small size, a mini-excavator is well-suited for home improvement projects.
  • Cost: The cost to buy or rent a mini-excavator can be a lot cheaper than a regular sized excavator. They also usually do not require as much fuel to run them. With the price of fuel rising every day, the savings can really add up. Since they are such versatile machines, they can do the work of a number of different machines just by placing different attachments on them. This saves you from having to buy a different machine for each task. If you run your own business, these savings can be passed onto your customers and allow you to be in high demand because of your reasonable prices.
  • Ease of Use: A mini-excavator is operated by one person. It is fairly easy to handle, even by the novice operator. It is able to navigate through rough terrain and climb inclines with ease. When it needs to be moved from work site to work site, it can be placed on a trailer and hauled behind a pickup truck.


If you are looking for a piece of machinery to help with your landscaping or farming tasks, look no further than a mini-excavator. We have a great selection of machines available for you to rent today..

Skidsteers

Skidsteers

The skidsteer loader is one of the most versatile and unique pieces of equipment on any work site. It is a small, compact piece of equipment that is nevertheless extremely powerful. Some people may recognize it by the term “Bobcat;” however, this term is inaccurate since Bobcat is a specific manufacturer and doesn’t refer to the machine itself. The skidsteer’s lift arms can be used to change out and attach a variety of different equipment making it useful for many different purposes. It derives its name from the fact that when it turns it is designed to skid. We are pleased to offer this useful machine as one of our rental options.

The skidsteer is typically a vehicle with four wheels. These wheels are mechanically locked on each side in synchronization with each other. The left drive wheels and the right drive wheels can be driven independently of each other. By rotating the left and right wheel pairs at different speeds this results in the machine turning by skidding. The benefit of this seemingly unusual turning technique is that it allows the machine to zero-radius, “pirouette”style turning. This makes it extremely extremely maneuverable.

The other big benefit of the of the skidsteer is the versatility of its lift arms. Various different types of equipment can be attached to the lift arms though the standard is the conventional bucket most often used is excavating. In addition to the bucket though, the skidsteer can also attach things like: a backhoe, angle broom, dumping hopper, trencher, roller, hydraulic breaker, sweeper, pallet forks, auger, stump grinder, ripper, tree spade, mower, snow blower, tillers, tilt, grapple, wheel saw, snow blade, cement mixer, and wood chipper machine. As you can see the possibilities are almost limitless and to top it all off many models are now being designed with automatic attachment changer mechanisms which make the changing process much easier.

Skidsteers are great whenever power, a compact size, and high maneuverability are called for. Their power often enables them to eliminate the need for larger excavating equipment. This has the added bonus of allowing these smaller pieces of equipment to fit into much tighter spaces than their larger counterparts would. They are often used for digging under an existing structure for purposes such as adding a basement or any other type of underground work.

We are very pleased to offer the skidsteer as one of our most rented pieces of rental equipment and we keep a sizable fleet to make sure that we have enough machines to meet your needs. Please let us know if you need a representative to come out and meet with you to determine the scope of the project and the number of machines needed. We can help you determine the length of time needed and the packages we offer to help you get the job done..

Specialty Bits

Specialty Bits

drill bits


Most everyone has a variety of different standard twist drill bits in their arsenal of tools. These common drill bits are ideal for small household tasks and are capable of creating pilot holes and drilling through a variety of materials including wood, metal and plastic. More complex tasks such as drilling through tile, thick wood, bricks, and/or concrete however, will require specialized bits. It is imperative to choose the correct drill bits for the task at hand to quickly and efficiently complete professional projects to get the job done. Here are a few different types that are available to rent or purchase.

Diamond Bits

Also referred to as tile bits, diamond bits are used to drill through materials such as porcelain tile. They can be used in a standard drill, but they must be operated on very slow speeds to prevent slipping. The bits must also be supplied with water or a cutting fluid constantly to prevent the material from breaking.

Masonry Bits

Masonry bits are typically made of tungsten carbide and used in conjunction with a hammer drill. There are some multi-purpose masonry bits that can be used in either a standard drill or a hammer drill, but most are considered contractor grade bits and can only be used with a hammer drill. Contractor grade masonry bits usually have a hexagonal shaped shank rather than the standard cylindrical shaped shank found on ordinary drill bits. They can be used to drill through hard materials such as brick, concrete and stone. Whether you are building an outdoor fireplace or simply hanging lights, masonry bits will make quick work of drilling through the hardest surfaces.

Cobalt HSS Bits

These precision drill bits are manufactured from solid cobalt alloyed steel and can be used at high speeds to drill through high tensile steels including stainless steel, bronze and welded seams. They are very handy for installing stainless steel countertops or putting metal wall art together.

Auger Bits

Auger bits are designed to drill holes through very thick, hard lumber. They feature a screw thread which draws the bit into the material and eliminates the need to push, as well as a single-spur cutting edge that scribes the circumference of the hole for a smoother finish. The drill bit also features large flutes that remove woodchips from the hole. Auger bits are frequently used for building log furniture or wood mantels.

Plug Cutters

These bits are used in a drill press to make plugs from wood that will conceal screw holes. The most common sizes of plug cutters are 3/8-inch, ½-inch and 5/8-inch. You can then stain and varnish the piece you are building for a seamless look that preserves the grain and color of the wood.

These are just a few of the many different types of specialty drill bits that you may want to take advantage of on your next industrial project. It is important to select the right size and type of bit for a more professional looking job. You will also want to use the correct RPM for each type of bit. We are pleased to offer option of renting bits to make your job more efficient and professional looking..

Welding Machines

Welding Machines

Essential in almost all industrial settings is the practice of welding. Welding involves binding two materials together. Typically these two materials will be made of metal; however, it is also possible to weld thermoplastics. Since welding provides a strong, solid way to bind surfaces and structures together it is invaluable to many companies. Since we are aware of how important and vital the ability to weld things together can be it comes as no surprise that welding machines are one of our most rented pieces of equipment.

Welding works by melting part of the workpieces as well as adding a filler material. This creates a molten pool of metal than then coalesces into a strong, solid, joined surface. Welding is in contrast to soldering and brazing which join surfaces together only through the use of a lower melting point filler material without melting the workpieces at all.

There are many different types of welding however by far the most prevalent type of welding in modern times is arc welding. There are various types of machinery which can be used for arc welding and they are generally classified based on their power supply. These include:

  • Transformer
  • Generator and Alternator
  • Inverter

However, in addition to these types of arc welding machines there are other types of welding which use different processes. Gas welding was actually the precursor of modern welding and is still in use in some areas. There is also a more recent type of welding that uses energy beams. This method of power is used for laser beam welding and electron beam welding.

Welding is a fundamental functionality on many industrial sites. Welding can even be done offshore or underwater to repair rigs, boats, and other equipment. In fact welding can even be done in outer space which means it will very likely continue to have applications even in the space age.

With so much potential benefit and so many varied uses for welding machines we are very pleased to offer a range of different welding machines available for rental. We keep our rates as affordable and easy as possible and you can order multiple machines, or different types of machines as needed. Please contact us for more information on your heavy equipment rental needs. Whether it is a large crane or a small welding machine, we will be more than happy to help you get the job done. As always…if you are unsure what machine best fits your job’s specific needs, just give us a call and we can send someone out to assess the project and determine the right machine for the work..
