Anvil Attachment’s rental fleet of hydraulic and cable buckets and grapples is now larger than ever. The rental fleet is now over 30 unit’s total. These units include hydraulic buckets, hydraulic grapples, single line buckets and Anvil’s new diesel hydraulic grapple. “The number of customers requesting rental units has increased drastically in the past year,” says Kyle Watson, Anvil’s inside sales representative. Customers are looking to rent for several reasons. The most common reason is to handle a short term job, where they only have a need for a week or month, and purchasing a bucket is not cost effective. Anvil has been working hard to make material handling attachments an affordable reality to all customers.
Another popular reason customers rent from Anvil is that the company offers a ‘rent to own’ programme. Under this programme, a customer can rent a unit, and if needs change or their job lasts longer than originally anticipated, it may
become cost effective for them to purchase. Anvil will then credit a portion of the rental fees to the purchase of the unit. Anvil also offers a ‘try it before you buy it’ option.Watson added, “Depending on the model, Anvil will also build a new unit for rental if we don’t have it in stock, with our fast lead time, we can produce a grapple in as little as a week and a hydraulic bucket in two weeks.”
Anvil offers rental options anywhere from a week to a year, with most units shipping the same day ordered. Anvil’s rental fleet includes hydraulic clamshell buckets in sizes ranging from 2yd3 to 9yd3. Cable operated buckets including single line radio remote control buckets from 1/2 cubic yards to 20yd3. These include cable ‘touch and go’ buckets.
Anvil’s grapple fleet is also large, including 4 and 5 tine hydraulic grapples. Anvil also recently added its 7yd3, 6 tine diesel hydraulic grapple to the rental fleet.
