    Benefits Of Renting A Carrier Before Purchasing

    As your one stop shop for crawler carrier rentals and purchases, Rig Source strives to make the process as simple as possible. Over the years, we’ve learned that our customers appreciate the benefits associated with renting before buying. Two of the biggest benefits are the ability for customers to familiarize themselves with new equipment and at the same time tryout the crawler carrier they’re considering buying.

    Maybe you’re not too familiar with crawler carrier products or maybe you haven’t seen the full scope of tracked carrier capabilities, but renting before you buy provides you the time and practice to learn.

  3. Drilling Rig Remount Services – Fast, Efficient & Customized

    August 13, 2014 by Rig Source Inc.
    Your heavy duty drilling equipment can only go as far as its mount will take it which is why Rig Source offers drilling rig remount services to broaden your range.

    Remounting drilling equipment is quite typical in the drilling industry, and drillers will often times remount the same drill rig numerous times throughout the course of its life. They do this to ensure accessibility and dependability of their rigs. No driller wants downtime, and by having their drill mounted to the most versatile vehicle will get them where they need to go will help eliminate downtime.

    Why Go Through The Hassle Of A Drilling Rig Remount?

    Wayne Nash, a contributing author for the National Driller wrote a piece on drill rig remounts called, “Considerations When Remounting a Drilling Rig.” In his article, Wayne came to the conclusion that drilling rigs need remounts throughout their lifetime for two main reasons.

    • Drill rig technology doesn’t change rapidly which means drill rigs usually outlast the trucks they’re mounted on.
    • Road or field conditions make use of trucks completely obsolete so alternative mounts such as tracks become a necessity.

    Both his points solidify the need for reoccurring remounts, but finding experienced individuals to complete the task successfully or sometimes just the time to get it done can be difficult.

    Rig Source Gets It Done

    Rig Source specializes in remounting and servicing drill rigs. In fact, providing drillers with custom drilling rig remounts has played a huge role in the company’s success.

  4. 5 Perks to Vacuum Excavator Rentals

    April 9, 2014 by Rig Source Inc.

    When it comes time to start a new project it is imperative to gather the right equipment for the job at hand. In the past, construction crews would rely on heavy duty backhoes to move dirt, and there is no doubt it works. However, there were a lot of risks associated with using this type of equipment which is why the industry has made the switch to vacuum excavators.

    Vacuum Excavators have proved themselves in the industry for a number of reasons of which I’d like to share with you so you can determine if vacuum excavator rentals are right for your next project.

    1. Reduce Risk of Damage – Vacuum excavators digTruck and Track Mounted Vacuum Excavator Rental holes using an air pressure “air knife” which breaks up the dirt so it can then be sucked out from around utility lines creating less opportunity for accidental damage to pipes, cables or road base in the discovery process.
    2. Fast & Efficient – Using air allows crews to locate utilities quickly and safely, is easily transported, and keeps the dirt dry so it can be reused immediately for backfilling.
    3. Multi-Purpose – Using a Vacuum excavator is more than just drilling because the unit can also be used for clean up to keep surface areas clear of drilling fluid returns and eliminates mud disposal.
    4. Accommodating Size – Vacuum excavators are available in various sizes and can be mounted to trailers, trucks, or tracked crawler carriers to give them full access to all types of terrain.
    5. Vacuum Excavator Rentals – The biggest perk to vacuum excavator rentals is that these units can be rented without having to invest in a long term commitment. When your job is done, you turn in the keys, and go on with the remainder of your project.

    These tips came straight from highly experienced heavy equipment rental coordinator, Bryan Sarsfield. Bryan gathers this information from you, our customers, on a daily basis so he can improve on providing you the most up to date and quality equipment that you are looking for.

    So the next time you’ve got a new project underway, consider a Vacuum Excavator rental for all the perks it offers. It’s time you start work smarter and not harder!
