Misc. Material Handling (174)

When you need to lift material safely, turn to United Rentals for a variety of material handling equipment. Move 15- to 60-ton machinery with roller kits from United Rentals. Each kit comes with four machine skates, four preload pads, two steering handles and a storage box. Try our toe jacks, bottle jacks and hydraulic jacks for heavy-duty lifting for low clearance needs. United Rentals also provides hydraulic pallet jacks that are versatile with easy manual operation. Available pallet jacks have load capacities up to 6,000 lb. Come alongs (come-a-longs) are all-purpose lever hoists designed to pull, drag, lift or stretch heavy loads. The United Rentals material handling fleet also includes fishing and pulling materials, trolley beams and accessories, carts, slings and shackles.

 

FAQs

How do I lift drywall to the ceiling?

  • Rent a drywall lift from United Rentals to easily attach drywall to your ceiling. Simply place the drywall sheet onto the lift's support hooks with the finished side facing down. Tip the sheet so that it is horizontal and use the lift to raise the drywall to correct placement. Use a ladder to screw the drywall into place before lowering the lift.

Should I use a come-a-long or a chain hoist?

  • A chain hoist can only be used for lifting and lowering loads along the vertical axis. Some of the United Rentals air chain hoists can lift up to 100,000 lbs., making it a great choice for lifting heavy loads onto trucks for transport. However, a come-a-long is a hand-operated winch that can be used to pull, lift, drag or stretch heavy loads. Come-a-longs are best used in situations where you need to pull a heavy object, such as putting up a fence or removing a tree root.

How big is a drywall lift?

  • Drywall lift rentals at United Rentals measure 55" x 55" x 52" and weigh about 99 lbs. With quick, tool-free assembly, these drywall lifts can easily be folded down or disassembled for storage and handling. When assembled, one person can easily operate to lift loads of 150 lb. up to 11' to 14', depending on the model.
