Avoids Up-Front Cost of Purchases

As you know, purchasing heavy equipment can put a big dent in your bottom line. Rather than be worried about working capital for the foreseeable future with making a big heavy equipment purchase, you can invest in a heavy equipment rental instead, saving those high up-front costs.

Little-to-No Maintenance or Repair Costs

When you rent heavy equipment, if something goes considerably wrong, you won’t have to pay for repair costs. If you rent from a reputable heavy equipment rental company, such as Hawthorne Cat, you can have peace of mind that the heavy machinery has been well cared for and will be reliable when you need it.

Protect Your Heavy Equipment

It is entirely possible that you purchase an aftermarket or generic Caterpillar part, install it, and it malfunctions, causing damage to other areas of your Cat machines. Hawthorne Cat service technicians see this frequently in Caterpillar engines. It’s best to always use Genuine Cat parts so that you can ensure your heavy equipment keeps its resale value, no further damage is done, and its structural integrity remains intact.
