Portable Generators

Honda Portable Generators

A number of hurricanes, earth quakes, ice storms, and early snow storms in recent weeks have probably put preparedness on your radar screen. Along with an emergency plan and a three-day supply of food and water, you might want to consider adding backup power at your home. Approximately 800,000 people were without power after the most recent snow storm.

Wheeled, portable generators are our biggest sellers. We only carry and recommend Commercial Grade Honda powered units with Recoil Start. These unit can be run once a year and still fire up when you need them. they have low maintenance requirements and the best reliability in the market.

Portable models we carry are 5,000 to 7,500 watts—enough to power plug-in appliances, gas or oil heat, and lights. A 6,000 watt generator will give you one 20 amp 220 circuit and a 7500 watt will give you one 30 amp 220 circuit to tie in to your power-transfer switch.  Don’t opt for a smaller unit. A 4300 watt to 4500 watt for a 20 amp 220 will push the generator to 100 percent duty cycle burning the fuel tank up quickly which means more trips out side to fill the tank. The bigger units have larger tanks and a longer run time.

Generator Tips

  • You will need plenty of fuel on hand, since filling stations often shut down during blackouts and most home-sized models use 11 to 18 gallons of gasoline per day. You’ll also need to preserve that fuel with stabilizer and store it in a well-vented shed or other area, away from the house and any ignition source. Never store the fuel in the house.
  • Always install a transfer switch to connect the unit to your home’s wiring system. Never connect a generator directly to your home
  • Never fuel your generator while it’s running
  • Keep a running generator at least 15 feet from your home.

Honda Power is the right choice for emergency power & Blakley Equipment is the best choice for all your equipment needs.

Forklift Rentals

Forklift Westchester County

Rentals VS Purchase

Many customers ask, “why rent a forklift when I could just buy one”. Well I have complied a list of reasons why renting is a better option than purchasing.

Advantages of Renting Forklifts Long Term (Beyond 12 Months)

  • One monthly payment includes truck, interest and negotiated maintenance costs
  • Budgeting is much easier and accurate with one monthly payment
  • Lines of credit or cash remain available for more important business costs.
  • Maintenance costs are now controlled and not subject to increases or overcharging by the dealer
  • Supervisory time spent making sure planned maintenance and other repairs are completed on time is reduced
  • Supervisory time spent approving repair invoices and running reports on forklift costs is significantly reduced
  • Clerical time spent issuing checks and filing invoices is significantly reduced
  • Upgrading is decided in advance which eliminates exposure to costly major component repairs
  • Dealer is now responsible for completing repairs on time and in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines
  • The cost of parts, the labor cost per hour or travel time costs from the dealer are no longer relevant
  • The cost of shop supplies, environmental levy’s or fuel surcharges may no longer be relevant
  • Much easier to “trade up” into a different truck if business conditions change or if the truck is no longer suitable
  • Forklift fleet stays up to date with the latest in cost efficiency, productivity and safety enhancements
  • Customer employed resident forklift technicians can now focus on production equipment and facility maintenance
  • Productivity gains should be realized from a more efficient, up to date, well maintained fleet of forklift trucks
  • Liability exposure with your insurance company will be reduced
  • Downtime costs may be reduced if properly negotiated with the dealer at the start of the rental period
  • Financial return on assets ratio will be improved because the forklift asset is removed from the balance sheet

This list may seem long, but these are just some of the reasons why you should consider renting equipment instead of purchasing it.

Aerial Equipment Rentals NY

Equipment Rentals – NY

These days, contractors are always looking for cost effective and alternative ways to accomplish tough tasks and projects because of the difficult economic climate.  When it comes to installing, windows or glass in high rise building projects, it is important to ensure the safety of the workers assigned to do this job  and it is also important to save as much time and money as possible. This is why most contractors consider to use a boom lift rental If you are not familiar with what boom lifts are, these are hydraulic powered aerial lifts that, as the name implies, lift people to elevated heights easier than ladders and scaffolding would be able to manage. A worker will stand inside the bucket at one end of the lift which is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle. These types of lifts are designed to allow workers to reach a wide area since they can move in many different directions.

While it is possible to buy a new or used lift  most people prefer to rent them instead. Renting these machines has a lot of advantages. To begin with, unless you have a permanent need for these types of lifts, you are better off just renting them on an as needed basis. The first of the many advantages of renting these types of lifts is that because you do not own the aerial lift, there is no need for you to pay for the lift’s repair and maintenance costs. The equipment rentals company is responsible for ensure that the machine you rented is in prime condition and  it is their responsibility to pay for the repairs and maintenance of the lift that you rented from them if something goes wrong.

But you need to remember a few things before you go ahead and rent an aerial work platform from any old company. First of all, there are a lot of aerial equipment rental companies that are doing business these days so it will be a good idea to shop around to different rental companies before you make up your mind about which company to do business with. Make sure that you have set a budget for the rental before you consider any company. Determine how long you are going to need the boom lift since this is how the rental company is going to come up with the rental fee quotes that they are going to give you. Gather quotes from two or three different rental companies and compare which ones provide the most affordable services and have the best customer service.

Manlift Tips

Manlift Yonkers

Manlifts are machines that lift a person or a number of people into certain heights so they can perform certain tasks and move around easily. They are safer and better than ladders or scaffoldings since it gives workers a certain security, comfort and mobility. But these lifts, just like any tools, can be dangerous if they are not used properly. Accidents involving these machines usually cause serious injuries, if not fatalities to the user or to individuals unlucky enough to be close by when the accident happens
In order to protect operators from getting into an accident, there are certain things that they need to understand. They must realize that there are some things that should be done and remembered before operating these machines.
There are primarily two kinds of manlift categories namely the articulating boom lifts which can move vertically and horizontally and the scissors lift that can only move vertically or up and down. These machines have differences when it comes to operating them. Operators must have proper training regarding the machines that they are going to use before allowing them to do so. Individuals without training must not be allowed to operate these machines because they are dangerous and can cause accidents.Learn the limits of the lifts. Learning the limits of the lift means understanding what the lift can and cannot do. Many people think that just because these are machines, they can do anything. This is wrong. Machines have limits that should not be challenged because they might not be able to handle it. Knowing the limits mean understanding its capabilities and not forcing it to do a job that it cannot actually do.

Before using the machine, do a safety check in order to be certain that it is still in proper working order and can be used without trouble. Checking the machine beforehand and determining its condition is vital to the safety of the crew. You do not have to wait before something bad happens to know when something bad will happen.
The secret to safety is being prepared for the things that might happen. Preparing for the things that might happen and preventing bad things from happening go hand in hand. For more information visit to our site at http://BlakleyEquipment.com
