The following are products recently introduced to the rental market, as well as models which have undergone significant changes.
Rain for Rent HH-125c
The HH-125c four-inch pump from Rain for Rent is specifically designed to produce larger flows and higher discharge heads for mining, dewatering projects and temporary fire protection systems. Because the versatile HH-125c can handle solids up to 3 inches in diameter, it can also be used as a sewer bypass pump. The pump is capable of producing flows up to 1,400 gpm and discharge heads up to 360 feet. Mounted on a galvanized trailer and skids to protect against rust and corrosion, this equipment has a nearly maintenance-free surface.

Max USA SuperFramer SN883CH/34
The SN883CH/34 SuperFramer features a compact design and only weighs 6.8 lbs. and is 30 percent smaller than many conventional tools. Equipped with a selective trigger system, the tool comes in a single fire mode, but when a pin is removed, it becomes the patented Max Anti-Double Fire trigger system so the tool can be contact or single fired with no adjustments. Features include open nose for easy jam clearance, dial adjustable depth control, pointy teeth on contact, maintenance-free end cap filter and comfortable rubber grip.
MBW Universal Vibratory Platform for Excavators
MBW's boom-mounted vibratory platform can be fitted with an assortment of vibratory wheels or vibratory plates, depending on soil type and work area constraints. Whichever compactor is affixed to the vibratory platform, the combination of vibratory forces (10,000 lbs. CF) and down pressure (to 33,000 lbs.) makes quick work of the compaction task at hand. Vibratory plate and wheel options for the Universal Plate are available in 24- and 36-in. working widths.
Leading Edge Single Pointed Ripper Bucket
The Single Pointed Ripper Bucket (SPRB) is a new-style ripper/bucket combination for excavators and backhoes that allows the operator to easily rip rock, coral shale, caliche, decomposed granite, limestone, sandstone, asphalt or frozen ground with the maximum breakout force. It can also pry out and carry stumps or boulders, rip a clean narrow V trench for laying utilities, as well as scoop and load material. The SPRB is a patent-pending design that allows the operator to own a relatively inexpensive Single Pointed Ripper plus allows the operator to scoop and remove ripped debris without requiring a tool change or machine change to use another bucket.
