Rental Equipment Show
The Rental Show is the American Rental Association’s annual convention and trade show for the equipment rental industry. It features construction/industrial equipment, general tool/homeowner equipment and party/special event equipment, as well as rental-specific seminars and industry networking. The Blakley Equipment Company was there in full force to check out all the new and exciting machines in the pipelines of some of the biggest aerial equipment manufacturing companies.
We saw many new lines of boom lifts, scissor lifts, and other types of equipment from well known brands such as Snorkle, JLG, Genie, and SkyJack. There were man lifts of every shape and size on that convention center floor, it was nice to see that all the big name companies came out in force this year.
There were also many smaller lesser known companies showing off their new man lifts at the Equipment Rental Show. Companies such as Nifty Lift, Haulotte, and others.
It was great to see the new equipment, but even more important it was great to walk around and get new ideas on rental equipment that we can purchase and rent to our customers. There were Generators, Tow Behind Lifts, and Light Trucks that we saw at the show that we think will make a good addition to the Blakley Equipment Fleet. There were also great machines by Terex, and Volvo. Terex showed us great line-ups of skid steers and tracked loaders that were out of this world. With options that are normally scene in a high end sports car, the little machines simply can’t be beat.
All in all the show was out of this world, and we all really enjoyed it. It’s shows like this one that give Blakley the Opportunity to continue to offer the best equipment rentals in New York.
