FAQs About Scalers

United Rentals has an extensive lineup of needle scalers for rent. A needle scaler, sometimes called a needle gun, is ideal for removing rust, mill scale and old paint from metal surfaces. The needles automatically adjust themselves to the contours of irregular surfaces and can strip an area down to bare metal in seconds. Pneumatic air scalers are used in metalwork applications for home and auto repair, adding texture to stone, creating non-skid surfaces and more. Whether you need to rent a needle scaler air tool for a day, month or year, United Rentals has you covered. Browse our listings below.

Can pneumatic scalers handle different types of coatings?

Pneumatic scalers are specifically designed to handle a wide range of coatings. Whether you need to remove paint, rust, epoxy or other stubborn substances, pneumatic scalers provide the power and efficiency required to achieve excellent results.

How do pneumatic scalers work?

Pneumatic scalers rely on compressed air to power their rapid, high-impact chiseling action. The air is directed into the scaler, transferring the energy to a set of rotating or reciprocating chisels. This process allows the scaler to efficiently remove coatings, rust and other stubborn materials from surfaces.
