The Rental Show Exhibitor Products

An early look

This month Rental Management takes a sneak peak at some of the products exhibitors in all equipment segments plan to showcase at The Rental Show 2013, which will take place Feb. 10-13, 2013, in Las Vegas.

Vermeer brush chipper

The BC900XL brush chipper from Vermeer, Pella, Iowa, is designed to chip heavily branched material up to 9 in. in diameter. The BC900XL has a 9-in.-by-14-in. feed opening leading to its 33-in.-diameter disc, which rotates at 1,400 rpm and features two steel chipper knives, each with two usable cutting edges. The machine’s SmartFeed system monitors engine rpm and is designed to automatically stop and reverse the single horizontal feed roller when feeding larger, hardwood material to enhance chipping productivity, the company says. The chipper is powered by a 40-hp Kohler Command CH1000 gas engine.




Tornado sweeper

The SWB 26/8 battery-powered walk-behind sweeper from Tornado, West Chicago, Ill., has a 26-in.-wide cleaning path for cleaning carpets and hard-surface floors. “Overthrow” sweeping technology in the SWB26/8 is designed to ensure that all debris — large and small — is picked up and tossed into the hopper, the company says. The side brush also is designed to reach into corners and edges to collect dirt and debris.




BERG Toys pedal go-kart

The GranTour family pedal go-kart from BERG Toys, Lititz, Pa., has powder-coated tubular steel construction, robotic welds, aluminum alloy rims,
pneumatic tires, a professional-strength chain,
adjustable seats, independently driven pedals (forward and reverse for the driver), removable front seats and seatbelts for front passengers. Options include a trailer, canopy and child seat.




Spyder Products double-sided jig saw blade

The double-sided jig saw blade from Spyder Products, North Kansas City, Mo., is produced in Germany and features cross-ground teeth designed to provide cleaner and more extreme cutting capabilities. The company says the blade’s unique shaft form permits tight radius cuts and 90-degree turns. The blade, made from chrome vanadium steel, is available in a woodworking model and a multi-surface model.




Snorkel boom lift

The Snorkel A62JRT self-articulating boom from Snorkel, Elwood, Kan., provides a maximum platform height of 61 ft. 8 in. with a maximum horizontal outreach of 29 ft. 6 in. It also has a 96-in.-by-39-in. tri-entry platform and a compact stowed length of 27 ft. 10 in. The zero tail-swing machine is expected to go into full production towards the end of 2012.




Charnecke Tents tent washer

The tent washer from Charnecke Tents, Rosholt, Wis., is available in two sizes — a 1,000-sq.-ft. or 2,000-sq.-ft. capacity. The automated machine holds 275 gal. of reusable water, which is heated to 100 degrees. The washer is built on a frame with forklift pockets and 50 amp/240V service, single-phase electricity.




MacKissic hydraulic earth drill

The Easy Auger II self-propelled one-man hydraulic earth drill from MacKissic, Parker Ford, Pa., is designed with a wheel engagement system that permits highway towing, eliminating the need of a trailer for customer transport. The company says the patent-pending two-stage hydraulic pump system delivers up to 350 ft. lbs. of torque, 36 percent more than before. The machine can handle a range of augers from 2 in.
to 18 in. in diameter.

Point-of-Rental service module

The service module from Point-of-Rental™ Systems, Grand Prairie, Texas, integrates with the company’s Enterprise Software for Windows to automate service scheduling and routing. Service schedules are created directly from the rental contract and adjustments can be made when service requirements change. Services can be temporarily suspended, increased or decreased to meet demand.



DPL America telematics integration

The remote CAN Bus data collection wireless telematics solution via the Titan Equipment Monitoring System from DPL America, Menlo Park, Calif., allows managers to remotely monitor and access information on their machines, such as fuel consumption, RPM, idle fuel consumption, engine torque and operating speed, pressures and temperature as well as diagnostic fault codes. Equipment owners can obtain similar data from all of their assets — regardless of make — view it all from a single web interface and receive consistent fleet-wide reporting, the company says.



Action Lighting party lights

The LED G12 party lights from Action Lighting, Bozeman, Mont., have 100 LEDs spaced 4 in. apart on a clear wire. The LED globes are 18mm and operate at 9W 0.09 amps. The strings are 33.5 ft. when lighted and use weatherproof end-to-end connectors. Up to 15 sets can be connected together and the party lights are available in blue, white or pink.



JLG Industries boom lift protection

SkyGuard™ from JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., is an aftermarket accessory that provides enhanced control panel protection for boom lifts. When activated by about 50 lbs. of force, such as from a collision, the SkyGuard sensor is designed to stop all functions, the company says. The control system automatically accesses the functions in use by the operator at the time of SkyGuard activation and — for a small period of time — is designed to reverse that sequence.



CheckVideo surveillance system

The CheckVideo® self-contained, cloud-based intelligent video surveillance system from CheckVideo, Reston, Va., has a high-definition outdoor bullet camera (CV135), built-in advanced video analytics and a DVR. The CV135 two-megapixel, IP 66 weatherproof-rated IR camera includes an all-in-one power cable with the option for power over ethernet. It works with the CheckVideo Software Service to provide video surveillance as a service (VSaaS). Once installed on a site, it can be configured and managed remotely using the CheckVideo web portal.



Decorative Novelty acrylic bead column

The HLL7420 acrylic bead column from Decorative
Novelty, Brooklyn, N.Y., has a heavy-duty metal frame with chain and measures 24 in. in diameter and 20 ft. high for high-ceiling venues and large tent events.



Quest dehumidifier

The PowerDry 1300 refrigerant dehumidifier from Quest, Madison, Wis., measures 20 in. by 17 in. by
30 in. The 82-lb. machine can remove 16 gal. per day
at saturation at up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
The company says the PowerDry 1300’s heavy-duty plastic housing was designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the construction environment. The dehumidifier has 12-in. recessed wheels, an integrated hose and cord storage pocket, and can be stacked two units high for storage and transport.
