Why Protect Your Skid Steer & Excavator Equipment?

If your business offers skid steer and excavator rentals, you are already well aware of your assets' actual value. Protecting skid steer and excavator equipment is hardly optional—it's a matter of protecting people and reducing the odds that the operator of any machinery gets an injury. Not only does this reduce the possible liability or insurance negotiations you will have to deal with when an accident does occur, but it also gives you the peace of mind that it is unlikely anything will go wrong.

During the countless hours that can be spent operating a hammer, mulcher, or log processor, an accident can always happen—and when the operator who got hurt rented the equipment through your company, you could be in for a litigious nightmare.

What are Excavators commonly used for? 

Excavators are tremendous and versatile vehicles that are ideal for digging trenches, excavating mines, breaking holes, or lifting waste. They are capable of doing some serious lifting. And while they are not as versatile and easy-to-use as skid-steers, they certainly serve an essential purpose across various industries, including:

  • Road construction
  • Mining
  • Building construction
  • Forestry
  • Landscaping

Whether a project requires dredging rivers, total demolition, or the simple lifting of heavy objects, an excavator can handle those needs, which is why it is such a popular choice to aid in infrastructural improvement projects, neighborhood re-builds, and other major overhauls.
