Anvil Expands Rental Fleet of Buckets and Grapples

Anvil's Rental Fleet of Buckets and Grapples 

Anvil’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 they offer a “rent to own” program.  Under this program, 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.  A customer can rent a unit, test it, and make sure it performs for their situation and material, prior to purchasing the unit.  This allows the customer to make sure this product is the perfect match for them with minimal cost and commitment.

Mr. 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.  And most units can ship the same day ordered.  Anvil has customers all over the world and has had rental units in South America and other countries.

Anvil’s rental fleet includes hydraulic clamshell buckets in sizes ranging from 2 cubic yards through 9 cubic yards. Cable operated buckets including single line radio remote control buckets from 1/2 cubic yards to 20 cubic yards.  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 7 cubic yard, 6 tine Diesel Hydraulic grapple to the rental fleet.

ISRI OPENING NIGHTISRI DAY 2

“Wow”, the most common word heard in the Anvil booth at the ISRI trade show.  Pictures and video don’t do justice to the massive Diesel Hydraulic grapple which Anvil is displaying at the ISRI trade show in Orlando.  When you see this grapple in person you get a feel for the size and power this grapple demonstrates.  Anvil is having a great show with lots of foot traffic through their booth, some from customers, and some from people who are just curious about the largest grapple they have ever seen.  One gentlemen simply stared at the grapple for about fifteen minutes, he stated he “didn’t have a machine large enough to handle that grapple, but wanted to buy one just because it so cool.”  Several people stop by just to have there picture taken with the grapple.  Anvil is also displaying a 1 cubic yard 4 tine hydraulic grapple, a 1 cubic yard 5 tine hydraulic grapple and a multi-purpose two over three grapple.

Anvil Rebuilds 4 Tine Hydraulic Grapple with a Touch of Patriotism

Posted by Anvil Attachments on Fri, Feb 01, 2013 @ 04:00 PM

4 Tine Hydraulic Scrap GrappleWhen a retired US Marine, who now owns and runs a scrap yard in south Mississippi, made a special request for his four tine hydraulic grapple, Anvil obliged.  The former Marine requested that Anvil make his grapple a little “Patriotic”.  Anvil went beyond a little patriotic and gave the four tine orange peel hydraulic grapple the full Red, White and Blue treatment.  The hydraulic grapple, pictured above, was in the shop for a rebuild as it had been through tough usage, moving scrap metal, cars and more.   This job was typical of an Anvil complete rebuild, starting with full disassembly, sandblasting and testing of the hydraulic system.  The next step was to replace the worn and damaged parts. These parts consisted of upper and lower pins and bushings, tine pins and bushings and tine teeth. All of the grapple's hydraulic hoses and fittings were replaced.  A missing cylinder guard was replaced, and all gouges and cracks were welded.  When it was time for paint, Anvil painted the tines blue, cylinders and cylinder covers red and the head assembly white.  Anvil has painted custom colors in the past, as they currently have a LSU purple and gold clamshell bucket in the rental fleet and has painted Saints black and gold buckets and grapples as well.
