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.
