Cranes for Rent - When You Should Loan Instead of Own

Author: Scott-Macon Equipment | Date: Mon, Apr 4, '16

With respect to heavy equipment, a crane is one of the largest financial decisions an independent contractor or construction company can make. A crane is also one of the most productive construction and development pieces of equipment in the trades.

Unlike most earth moving equipment, there are not comparable pieces of equipment, which are less expensive, that offer a work-around solution to a crane. A fair portion of what an excavator can do, a backhoe can as well. A frontend loader can accomplish most of what a dozer loader can. But, there is not another piece of equipment with the lift and reach of a crane. 

Still, purchasing a crane is a decision that must be calculated carefully considering the cost. Likewise, renting a crane for too long can also be counter productive. In order to determine whether it is best to rent a crane or own it, contractors and companies must do a cost benefit analysis. The first step in the process is establishing the pros and cons of own versus loan.


Terex Crane for Sale - Buying vs. Renting

Author: Scott-Macon Equipment | Date: Fri, Mar 11, '16

Making the decision between buying or renting a Terex® Crane depends on two variables: your needs and finances. Given the choice, many contractors and excavators elect to own a crane, while others forego the investment and rent for their needs. With no wrong options, choosing to rent or buy a Terex® crane for sale will deliver equal performance on your demanding work environment.

In some instances, owning a crane is essential to cutting costs and increasing profits. On the other hand, owning a crane and not having sufficient resources to keep it circulating around a jobsite is a waste.

Rough Terrain Cranes - A Productive Solution for Tough Jobsites

Author: Scott-Macon Equipment | Date: Thu, Feb 18, '16
A rough terrain crane is the choice of many hardworking industries as it is capable for any jobsite.

Unlike other cranes in its class, a rough terrain crane provides reliable service without compromising on power and security. At Scott-Macon Equipment, we offer rough terrain cranes for rent or sale based on your needs.

Advantages of Rough Terrain Cranes 

A number of design advantages make rough terrain cranes capable of maneuvering over surfaces and around obstacles that limit the movement of rubber-tire truck cranes and track hoe cranes. Rather than three or more axles -- like most rubber-tire truck cranes have, -- rough terrain cranes have two, hyper-sized axles. Both axles have a differential to propel the wheels which means rough terrain cranes are all-wheel drive. Rough terrain cranes also have over-sized tires which are significantly wider and larger in diameter than those found on a typical radial-tire truck crane.
