Add Some Muscle to Your Big Project with the Power of a Forklift

Fork Lift Isolated

For the do-it-yourself enthusiast who likes to take on big projects that involve the movement and maneuvering of heavy building materials, renting a forklift is a necessity. Human labor can only get you so far—for the sake of efficiency and safety, it’s best to call in some backup. If you’re moving pallets of bricks, slabs of stone, or hunks of metal, a forklift offers you the advantage of 8,000 pounds of steel and a diesel engine. Here’s why you should rent a forklift:

Lifting Strength: The average person can lift upwards of 100 pounds to their hips. The average forklift lifting capacity is around 4,000 pounds—this vehicle can lift a load more than 15 feet in the air. That’s quite a difference! Their lifting capacity makes forklifts critical to warehouses and distribution centers, but also versatile enough for home projects. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a load that a forklift can’t handle.

Maneuverability: You’re legally able to drive a forklift if you have a driver’s license, but you may need a practice run or two to get the hang of its rear-wheel steering. Rear-wheel steering, along with a forklift’s compact body design, allows the vehicle to maneuver around tight corners and into areas that other load-bearing equipment can’t. Just take it easy on the steering wheel.

Attachments: Lifting pallets isn’t the only function a forklift can carry out. Attach a truss boom to extend your forklift’s reach and use it as a crane. Do you need to clear away snow, dirt, waste, or bulk materials? Attach a bucket to the front end. You can even transport rolls of carpet with a carpet pole attachment.

If you need some added muscle to help you complete a big project, call A Tool Shed at (831) 359-4769 to take advantage of our forklift and forklift attachment rentals. Come into one of our six locations in northern California to learn more about the wide selection of equipment and tools we have available to rent.

Bringing in the Big Guns: Signs It's Time to Rent Heavy-Duty Equipment

Forklift Loading

Why spend all day using a hoe when you can rent a tiller and get the job done in less than an hour? The right tool applied to any task saves you from unnecessary toil and strain. For those jobs that are just too much for the tools you have at hand, call in reinforcements by renting heavy-duty equipment specifically designed to make mincemeat of challenging tasks. Find your nearest equipment rental service when:

Normal Tools Won’t Do

Every household should be equipped with the right tools to handle everyday tasks, like a hammer, screwdriver, and shovel; you’ll frequently encounter situations when these tools provide a tremendous advantage over just using your hands. However, for jobs in which the benefits of basic tools become outweighed by the enormity of the task, you should rent higher-powered tools.

You Encounter Heavy Loads

For bigger projects that require the management of bulk materials or heavy objects, do your body a favor and rent a forklift or comparable lifting equipment. If you’re dealing with bulk materials, such as a pallet of bricks, you’ll want to position the pallet as close as possible to where you need the materials. However, that pallet of bricks weighs close to 3,000 pounds, so you’ll need the help of mechanical intervention.

You’re Undertaking a Large-Scale Project

If you’re envisioning a project that requires a multitude of involved tasks, or you have a single task that seems insurmountable, renting the right equipment will get the job done faster and better. If you’re remodeling your backyard by adding a garden, a fountain, and decorative stones, renting a heavy-duty tiller and forklift will help you complete all these tasks more efficiently. If all you have to do is dig, an excavator can get the job done in no time.

Find the right tool for the job at A Tool Shed’s six locations in northern California. Call us at (831) 359-4769 for more information on our heavy-duty equipment such as forklifts, excavators, demolition hammers, tillers, and much more.
