The summer season brings a period of heightened activity across various industries, particularly construction. During these months, there is a significant increase in demand for specialized equipment, presenting a unique set of challenges and opportunities. One strategic approach to combat these challenges is equipment rental, which addresses immediate needs and offers several advantages.  

Before diving into the wide selection of rental equipment available through Leppo Rents, let’s first explore how choosing to rent equipment during the summer can lead to enhanced efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and flexibility.  

Operational Efficiency

During a busy summer in the construction industry, time is of the essence. Renting equipment gives you the ability to quickly arrange and organize resources as needed to meet your project’s specific demands. Depending on your needs, purchasing equipment could be more beneficial, but renting allows you to respond to project needs rapidly. This agility is critical during the summer months when projects are likely time sensitive.  

During busy months, delays can result in significant financial consequences. Rental companies, like Leppo Rents, ensure the equipment is in optimal condition. This minimizes downtime caused by maintenance issues, enhancing operational efficiency and productivity.  


Renting equipment offers a variable cost model that can be aligned to meet your specific needs from a project and a financial standpoint. Leppo offers daily and long-term rental rates depending on your needs and the longevity of a project. This allows for more precise management of your budget, enabling your business to allocate resources more efficiently and invest in areas that directly contribute to profitability and growth.  

Access to Advanced Technology

Technological advancements are reshaping the construction industry, offering opportunities for increased efficiency and innovation. By choosing to rent, businesses can gain access to the latest technologies and newer, top-notch equipment without the significant investment of purchasing. This provides businesses with a competitive edge, allowing them to execute projects with more advanced equipment for higher efficiency, precision, and quality.  

Bobcat’s T770 Compact Track Loader, available for rent at Leppo, is equipped with a durable undercarriage, superior lift arms, maximum headroom and legroom, and unmatched machine versatility. This track loader also features Smart Cooling for efficient operations in harsh conditions.  

The JLG ES2632 provides a safe and efficient solution for working at various heights. With its compact design, it can easily navigate tight spaces while offering a working height of up to 32 feet. This scissor lift is ideal for indoor jobsites where noise and emissions need to be minimized. 

JLG’s T500J Towable Boom Lift offers a versatile solution for a range of aerial work tasks. Its compact size and towable design make it easy to transport, while its 50-foot platform height and 30-foot horizontal reach provide sufficient reach for various projects. It also features a self-leveling platform and multiple outrigger positions, ensuring stability and ease of use on any jobsite. 

Embracing Green Technology

In a world where “going green” matters and jobsites may restrict the use of heavy equipment due to environmental regulations, having access to electric equipment gives you a leg up on the competition. Leppo offers a range of electric machinery to meet these needs.  

For instance, the Bobcat E10e is perfect for jobsites with stringent emission standards or indoor operations. It delivers the same power and performance as its diesel counterparts.  

Additionally, Leppo provides electric lifts from leading manufacturers like Genie, Gehl, and JLG. These electric lifts offer quieter operation and zero emissions. Models like the Genie GS-1930 scissor lift and JLG 1932R electric scissor lift provide efficient, clean operation without compromising on performance or reliability.
