A Look at How a Generator Rental Can Help You This Winter

Tool Rental San Jose

If you live in an area where high wind gusts and heavy rainstorms periodically occur during the winter, chances are you've experienced a power outage at one point in time. Losing your power, no matter how long it may be, can be a major inconvenience, especially in this age of smartphones, tablets, and Wi-Fi. To ensure that you and your family are not left in the dark during a storm, consider renting a backup generator at your local equipment rental store.

Generators Come to the Rescue
Strong gusts of wind are usually to blame for power outages during storms because they can dislodge or damage overhead powers lines. When the power goes out, most people reach for their flashlights or candles, which work fine during short outages. If an outage lasts for more than a couple of days, you may find yourself dealing with a whole array of problems: the perishable foods in your refrigerator can spoil, and your home's indoor temperature can plummet without a working heating system. Having a backup generator on hand to power your home temporarily can really help the situation. If you have a medical device that relies on electricity, you definitely want to be in contact with your equipment rental store.

Generators Protect Your Home
Having a generator rental can really come in handy, especially if your power goes out during the coldest part of the winter season. Without electricity to light and/or fuel your furnace or space heater, the temperature inside your home can drastically drop, making your home uninhabitable and causing your indoor pipes to freeze and potentially burst.

Generator Rentals Save You Money
Unless your area experiences power outages on a regular basis, it may not be financially feasible for you to buy a backup generator, which could run upwards of $4,000. The beauty of renting a generator is that you can have access to a top-of-the-line model at a fraction of the cost to purchase one outright. Also, you won't need to worry about storing it in your home if you're tight on space.

At A Tool Shed Equipment Rental, we're committed to providing our customers with high-quality tools and equipment for rent in San Jose. Give us a call today at (800) 286-6574 to learn more about the backup generators we have in stock, as well as our other equipment and tool rentals.

Exploring the Great Benefits of Renting Tools

Tool Rental San Jose

If you're tackling a construction project, you may need to have a few power tools available to help you get through the process quicker. Certain tools and equipment, such as power drills and circular saws, may be continually used for many years. Others, such as cement mixers, may only need to be used once every decade or so. Therefore, it makes more sense to rent certain tools and equipment rather than spending the money to buy them. Here are some more benefits of renting tools.

You Can Get Your Job Done Faster
You can either spend countless hours hammering in nails and mixing cement by hand, or you can rent the equipment to do it for you in a fraction of the time. Power tools and construction equipment allow you to complete your projects efficiently and in a timely manner. They can also take the strain off of your body by doing the bulk of the physical work for you, so you're less likely to end your days with backaches, blistered hands, and sore muscles.

You Save Money
Tool or equipment rental is a great and cost-effective way to get the best tools for your project without having to buy them at retail cost, especially if they're things you won't be using frequently.

You Get to Use the Best and Most Reliable Tools
When you rent tools at a reputable equipment rental store, you have access to the best tools and equipment on the market today—the ones professional contractors and master craftsmen use. And since these tools are serviced and maintained by the rental places, you can rest assured that anything you potentially rent is in its best working condition; if it's not, you can easily exchange it for one that is, and at no extra cost.

Understanding Nail Gun Pressure Settings

In order to operate power tools properly, you must understand how to use them. Regarding a nail gun, you have to adjust the pressure settings each time you use it, which ranges between 70 psi and 120 psi. The right setting depends on the length of the brads you are using and the type of material you're working with—softer materials require lower pressure settings whereas harder materials require higher settings. For example, you may need to go as high as 110 psi to drive a brad just below the surface of oak wood.

Check out this video to see how the pressure is adjusted on a nail gun.

Genie lifts have been around since 1966. As of 2015, the company is an industry leader in the manufacturing of aerial work platforms and material lifts, offering products that are made to be highly reliable, safe, and easy to use. Genie has a vast catalog of equipment that includes their scissor lift lineup.

Genie scissor lifts are extremely helpful in construction applications, giving workers a large, level, and stable work platform to perform installation and maintenance work in high places. These lifts can be used indoors and outdoors, and they're perfect in narrow spaces. Unlike other kinds of aerial work platforms, such as cherry pickers—also known as boom lifts—that can be articulated and have a range of motion, Genie scissor lifts can only move vertically up and down.

A Look at How Home Demolition Works

Tool Rental San Jose

With the rise in national home sales in recent years, not to mention the popularity of home-improvement shows, there has been a surge in the number of homeowners and who are tackling home-renovation projects and buying fixer uppers. There are many benefits of being a do-it-yourselfer. Not only can you gain useful construction skills, you can also save money on your renovation project by doing the demolition work yourself. Here is a look at the home demolition process and how an equipment rental store in San Jose can help you get the job done.

Learning the Trade
You just purchased an older home that needs some TLC and a facelift. You want to do a bulk of the demolition work yourself, and possible some construction work, but you have no or very little home-remodeling experience. Thankfully, if you have a healthy amount of gumption and confidence in yourself, you can learn how to be a fairly decent handyperson. There are many resources available to you: how-to books, home-improvement shows, and consulting an expert at your local hardware or tool rental store.

Using Power Tools
You should become proficient in using hand tools and larger tools like sledgehammers, crowbars, and pickaxes. Better yet, make it a point to learn how to use power tools, which can be rented at your local equipment rental store if you don't happen to have them on hand. The most useful power tools you're going to need for demolition work are a power drill, a reciprocating saw, and a circular saw. For example, reciprocating saws can cut through wood and metal, which is very helpful when you're attempting to remove windows, steel railings, or stubborn cabinetry.

Consulting a Professional
When in doubt, strike up a conversation with your tool-rental specialist. He or she can match you with the right tool for whatever job you're tackling. Most rental places also sell new and used equipment—a knowledgeable expert can help you build your personal tool library.

For nearly 70 years, A Tool Shed Equipment Rental has provided our customers with the best home demolition equipment and tools for rent in San Jose and the Greater Bay Area. We are open seven days a week and have seven rental store locations to serve you. Call us at (877) 890-2963 to chat with one of our customer service specialists and to learn more about our available inventory.
