When you have a heavy job to do, but you do not have the right Cat equipment, it can be a long, hard haul. Renting equipment is a great way to get the job done without spending a lot of extra money on purchasing items you may only use a few times. There are many benefits to renting pieces instead of buying them. Here are just a few to consider.

Why Rent Caterpillar Equipment?

-Cost – When you rent a heavy piece of equipment, you only have to pay a small cost to use the item for a certain length of time. You can then return it and go about your business. IF you only need to use the equipment for a brief amount of time, renting is a great options.

-Liability – If you rent equipment and you need a heavy equipment part, the rental company will be in charge of getting that piece to you. When you own these items, finding heavy equipment parts can be a pain and can cost you a lot of time and money.

-Connections – When you have a good relationship with an equipment rental company, you will have access to other heavy equipment items you need. You might have some equipment of your own and you might rent at times as well. When you have a good connection with a rental company, you can get access to things like used CAT parts for sale in case you need something along those lines.


Renting Caterpillar equipment is a great way to try new items out before you make a decision to purchase something. Whether you only need the equipment for a little while or you just want to test it out, renting is a good way to go. You can use equipment and get the job done and then hand it back over for someone else to deal with the maintenance and upkeep on it. If certain jobs require equipment you don’t have, renting is an option. If you work with a company for parts already, contact them first to look into rental options.
