Attachment Rentals for Paving

Government spending on paved roads, bridges and highways totals around $80 billion every year, according to the National Asphalt Pavement Association, and even more money is spent on private paving. In such a large and essential industry, having the right machine attachments is key to maintaining your company's competitive edge.

Renting is a smart, hassle-free way to get the equipment you need while keeping costs down. Learn more about the types of attachments needed for paving and how to rent them below.

Types of Attachment Rentals for the Paving Industry

Professionals in the paving industry use a variety of machines and attachments to get work done. Three of the most common are:

  • Cold planers: A cold planer is a machine that uses a high-speed drum and cone-shaped bits to remove old concrete and asphalt before resurfacing. Different cold planer attachments come in different widths and maximum cutting depths to accommodate different job requirements.
  • Compactors: Compactors are tools used to flatten a base layer of asphalt during a paving project. There are different types of compactor attachments, including compaction wheels, vibratory drum compactors and vibratory plate compactors. The performance of each attachment depends on the width and amount of force they exert.
  • Saws: Saw attachments are used for road expansion joint cuts and asphalt patch cutting. Like cold planers, they feature varying widths and maximum cutting depths.

Many times, these tools are used in combination with skid steers, which are compact machines with arms that allow for various attachments. They are also used with wheel loaders, excavators and backhoes.

Renting Attachments for Paving Projects

Attachment rentals save money and time by allowing companies to access equipment while eliminating the need for maintenance and long-term storage. To benefit from an attachment rental, you need to find a rental store you can rely on.

Here are a few factors to look for when choosing a heavy equipment rental provider:

  • Flexible rental agreements: With a flexible rental agreement, you'll only pay for the amount of time you actually need the attachments.
  • Well-maintained machinery: Check out the equipment in person before signing an agreement. A dependable dealer like The Cat® Rental Store will examine equipment carefully and perform necessary maintenance at both check-in and check-out.
  • Helpful support services: Make sure the rental dealer you choose offers the support services you need to stay productive. This should include quick response when machines malfunction and operator training adapted to your team's schedule.
