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.

Make Deconstruction a Breeze by Renting Demolition Equipment from A Tool Shed


You embark on a remodeling project to enhance and enrich a space for your own enjoyment, but demolition can be just as much fun when you have the right tools. There’s just something about wielding a giant hammer that gets the blood pumping; it’s hard work, though, and some surfaces need the extra power of heavy-duty demolition equipment. Rent the demolition tools you need from A Tool Shed, offering northern California’s widest selection of rental equipment, including the following:

Demolition Hammer: You’ve seen construction workers use this kind of hammer to break up concrete, but they are useful in demolishing any type of hard surface. We offer three different degrees of force—35 lbs., 45 lbs., and 60 lbs.—for you to choose from based on the task at hand.  Operating a demolition hammer requires a strong grip and attention to safety. Here’s a tip: Start on the edges of a floor to avoid debris issues later.

Bushing Tool: Use a bushing tool attachment with your hammer in order to rough out, carve, or texture masonry, concrete, or asphalt. Bushing tools can also prepare a concrete or asphalt surface for resurfacing. This tool’s multiple tips spread out the force exerted onto the surface when you want to add texture or remove just a portion of the material. Pick one up at A Tool Shed; we’ll pay the sales tax.

Sledge Hammer: A sledge hammer is one of those classic multi-purpose, must-have tools for demolition. For jobs that don’t require the power of an electric demolition hammer, use a sledge hammer instead for more accuracy. Be sure to wear safety goggles, gloves, and a hardhat to stay safe from debris. Use proper form when using a sledge hammer to utilize the head’s weight and save your back from undue strain.

Take advantage of A Tool Shed’s electric demolition hammers and tools by stopping in at one of our six convenient locations. Call us at (831) 359-4769 to learn more about how our 60 years of experience and outstanding inventory can provide you with the right rental tools for your project.
