When should you rent an excavator? What are the benefits? How do you go about doing it?

Every day question when you are planning your fleet for the next project.

So we have summarised 4 main reasons and benefits of renting your next excavator with TSL!

Before we proceed, the very very first question you need to ask yourself is..


What is the expected operating profile like for your excavator?

How many hours will you be running this excavator in the next 12 months?

If your answer is probably less than 2000 hrs, then it might make more economical sense to rent an excavator from TSL.


Reason #1 - You dont need to own an excavator

If you rent an excavator, it means that you will not need to own one. With a yearly operation of less than 2000hrs, you are probably operating about 11 hrs for 6 months. For the other 6 months, you will not have any work for the excavator and you will have to keep it somewhere. But as well all know, Singapore land is general small and expensive. 

Apart from finding a temporary home for the excavators, you will also need to ensure that the excavator is well maintained. Parts purchase and storage is required and you will also need to train up a team of technicians who are familiar with the excavator. 

Unfortunately, with the scarce land and lack of manpower in Singapore, it is not always feasible to keep a big machine that will not be used for the next 6 months at least. 


Reason #2 - You dont need to maintain your own excavator

As mentioned earlier, maintaining your own excavator will require you to store parts and have a team of technicians. It might not make much sense at all!
