In the construction industry, the ability to complete projects efficiently and safely in high temperatures isn't just an advantage; it's a necessity. Although proper planning, management, and safety protocols play an important role in construction during extreme heat, choosing the right equipment is also crucial. 

The Importance of Heat-resistant Construction Equipment

Working with machinery that can't handle high temperatures could cause safety concerns, an increase in downtime, and lower efficiency. Heat-resistant equipment helps minimize the risk of thermal degradation, which can lead to mechanical failure and jeopardize worker safety. Our selection of heat-resistant equipment is designed to deliver unmatched performance and reliability, even in extreme heat. 

Assessing Your Heat-resistance Requirements

Determining the heat-resistance needs of your projects requires an analysis of the operational environment and material specifications. This analysis is critical in selecting machinery and materials that can withstand hot conditions without compromising efficiency or performance.  

It’s crucial to thoroughly analyze your work environment. Understanding the temperature ranges and the duration for which materials will be exposed provides a fundamental understanding for addressing heat-related issues. 

Check the material specifications to identify any potential problems before you start work. For example, building materials are typically rated for service temperature or the temperature at which they maintain mechanical properties. Materials designed for indoor use may not be rated for the high temperatures of an outdoor jobsite.  

The goal of this assessment is to ensure that these materials and your equipment can stand up to the expected summer heat.  

Advanced Heat-resistant Solutions

Our inventory includes a comprehensive selection of machines and tools that are designed to efficiently and safely complete the job, even in extreme heat. From air-conditioned tractor cabs designed for operator safety and comfort to skid-steer loaders capable of operating efficiently in the heat, Leppo Rents has you covered with equipment so you can finish the job, regardless of the temperature outside. 

Equipment with Enclosed Cabs

The JLG 1255 Telehandler offers unmatched quality with versatility and power, making it ideal for handling materials in various climates. Its enclosed cab is designed for operator comfort and protection, featuring air conditioning to keep the interior cool on hot days. With a lifting capacity of 12,000 pounds and a reach of 55 feet, it excels on all jobsites. Its advanced hydraulics and control systems enable smooth operation, reducing operator fatigue.  

The SkyTrak 10054 is another piece of equipment with an enclosed cab, ideal for hot climates. The climate controls within the cab let operators keep their immediate environment cool. With an impressive lifting capacity of 10,000 pounds and reach of 54 feet, it’s ideal for large-scale projects during the summer.  

If you’re tight on space but need a piece of equipment that provides agility and precision, the Bobcat E35 is a standout option. This machine’s enclosed cab features a climate control system as well and can keep your operators digging for hours without worrying about the heat. It offers a digging reach of 17.2 feet and digging depth of 10.2 feet, so it’s ideal for detailed excavation tasks, plus its compact size makes it easy to navigate tight spaces. Get protection from the elements while increasing productivity on the jobsite. 

Compact Loaders

Bobcat’s S650 Skid-Steer Loader is engineered for superior efficiency and durability in hot climates. This skid-steer loader comes equipped with a Tier 4 compliant engine that operates without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF), minimizing downtime and reducing long-term maintenance expenses. This machine boasts a significant increase in horsepower, improved lifting capabilities and faster cycle times, equaling reduced time the machine and operators are exposed to heat. 

The Bobcat T76 Compact Track Loader is designed to deliver performance and reliability in demanding climates. Similar to the S650 Skid-Steer Loader, this machine is also equipped with a Tier 4 engine. The T76 stands out with an advanced cooling system, which keeps the engine and hydraulic components at optimal temperatures, even during long usage in hot environments. It also boasts impressive traction and flotation capabilities, allowing it to perform efficiently on soft, uneven, or difficult terrain.  

When it comes to navigating the complexities of heat-resistant equipment and materials, it’s critical to consult with experts, like our team at Leppo Rents, to ensure that decisions are informed, strategic, and aligned with the specific goals and demands of your project.
