Attachments for Concrete Jobs

Concrete is a strong, versatile building material used for everything from paving roads to constructing dams in many construction and public works projects. Whether a project requires you to pour new concrete or cut through the old, your company needs the right machine attachments to get the job done.

Essential Types of Concrete Job Attachments

Concrete jobs require specialized machines and attachments. Some of the most common attachments in the concrete industry include:

  • Hammers: Hammer attachments are used to facilitate efficient demolition of reinforced concrete. These tools can be silenced or non-silenced, and some are capable of delivering an impact frequency higher than 1,500 blows per minute.
  • Saws: Like hammers, saw attachments are used to break through existing concrete. A good saw allows your team to perform patch cutting, utility trenching and road expansion joint cuts. Varying widths and maximum cutting depths accommodate different project specifications.
  • Compactors: Compactor attachments allow you to flatten raw soil and gravel before pouring concrete. There are three main kinds of compactor attachments manufactured by Caterpillar: compaction wheels, vibratory drum compactors and vibratory plate compactors. Width and compaction force influence the performance of each type.
  • Mixing buckets: For projects that require you to pour concrete, a mixing bucket attachment is essential. These buckets use paddles to mix material continuously and allow operators to place concrete right where it's needed.

Hammers, saws, compactors and mixing buckets are most often used with skid steers. They can also be attached to wheel loaders, excavators and backhoes. You can rent a machine configured with the concrete job attachment you need or rent the attachment separately. Both options can prove beneficial depending on what heavy machinery you have on hand.

Finding the Right Rental Attachments for Your Next Concrete Job

Renting equipment for concrete jobs can help you complete work effectively while reducing costs and maintenance requirements. Here are a few tips to finding the right rental attachments:

  1. Evaluate your needs: Before you choose a rental provider, determine what you need from your rental equipment. Consider which attachments you want, how long you need them and what you're willing to pay.
  2. Check equipment condition: Once you've found a prospective dealer, check out the equipment in person. Your rental provider should examine the condition of the attachment and perform regular maintenance, preferably at both check-in and check-out.
  3. Ask about service offerings: You want your rental provider to offer more than a large attachment inventory. To minimize downtime and promote safety, look for a company that offers fast response in the field and convenient operator training.
