Equipment rental stores rent hundreds of different things to people that need them, but if you haven't checked out what they offer recently, you may discover that they have some pretty cool things you can rent. Here are two unique tools that you may want to rent at some point, and each of these has the potential to help you complete your project faster.

Magnetic Sweeper

A magnetic sweeper is a tool that is used to pick up metal objects. It is easy to compact and easy to use, and it will make your job a lot easier and faster. A magnetic sweeper is something that you push along the ground. It can be used outside or inside, and most sweepers are light-weight. They contain strong magnets on the bottom, which is why they can pick up metal.

As you push it around, the device picks up all metal objects it comes in contact with, including:

  • Nails
  • Screws
  • Bolts

Renting a magnetic sweeper is a great idea after finishing a remodeling job, or any other type of construction project. It will help you clean up the yard and driveway, and you can also use it on indoor floors. Picking up all metal objects will make the house and yard safer and will help prevent injuries and damage.

Electric Conveyor Belt

Another cool item you can rent is an electric conveyor belt. A conveyor belt is something that is used to transport things, and this particular type is used for moving sand, gravel, and other loose objects from one place to another.

If you have to do any type of job that requires moving gravel or small objects from one place to another, this tool could make your job easier. Electric conveyer belts come in different sizes and widths. Some have flat surfaces, while others have edges or lips on them. The edges are necessary if moving sand or loose objects, but the types that are flat are great for moving things such as bricks or blocks.

You can set up the conveyor belt inside or outside of a house or building. You can also set it up to help you take items from a basement out of a house, or to take items from outside into the basement.

If you haven't visited a tool rental store lately, it might be time to go. These stores offer so many different things to rent, and you may end up finding some unique items that would help make your projects easier.
