Why should you rent the Equipter? How do you rent it? The answers are quite simple. 

The RB4000 is the flagship model of Equipter machines, designed to elevate productivity on the job site by creating an efficient debris management system. This 12-foot dump trailer lift elevates your company, taking production and your business to the next level. With the capacity to hold up to 4,000 pounds of debris and easy access to the second story of residential homes, this multipurpose tool will help you get far more jobs done. 

Customers and homeowners love the RB4000 because they know their shrubs and flowers will be protected from debris. Being lightweight, the Equipter RB4000 won’t leave ruts in the yard and helps ensure a smooth roof replacement process for you and your customers.  

Explore your Equipter rental options further in this article, from why your company may want to rent it to the estimated costs of renting the RB4000. 

Why rent the Equipter RB4000?  

Get one-off projects done faster. 

Renting the Equipter helps increase efficiency on one-off jobs. If you’re a general contractor, you likely tackle various types of projects but may only need the RB4000 for a select few. Renting the Equipter for these specific one-off projects can help you save time and labor costs.  

Roof replacements aren’t often a specialty for general contractors. If you can relate, your crew may not be as efficient with setup and cleanup. Renting the RB4000 for the occasional roof replacement will help you and your crew rise above these challenges and get the job done faster.  

If you’re a restoration or renovation company, you know how time-consuming it can be to complete projects in a second story of a home or building. Not only that, it creates extra physical stress from hauling supplies and debris up and down inconvenient or narrow stairways and through a single door. One way to reduce stress and preserve manpower on these occasional jobs is to rent the Equipter. 

With a self-propelled Equipter on the job, you get rid of debris more efficiently and streamline production. It’s easy to park it and lift the portable dump container to a second-story access point. From there, throw debris directly into the RB4000’s container – no struggling down the stairs. Then, just drive it to your on-site dumpster and dump the old materials and debris. And then, drive and lift the unit filled with the supplies you need right back to your access point.  

Take advantage of renting the RB4000 for these jobs to raise efficiency, take care of your crew, and cut labor costs.  

Even homeowners appreciate Equipter rentals. Whether it’s to speed up a mulching project or to haul firewood to heat their home, this piece of equipment gets the job done efficiently.  

Try the RB4000 before you buy it. 

If you’re a leader in your company, one of your goals is to make wise decisions and investments for your business. Using wisdom will not only help your company continue doing what they’ve been doing, but it will help them do it better.  

Maybe you’ve considered purchasing the RB4000, but would like to make sure it’s right for your company. Rent it to give it a try and help you make a well-informed decision.  

Investing in a new piece of equipment may not currently be feasible for your company, whether that’s due to getting hit hard by an economic downturn or having just started your own business. Consider renting the RB4000 for jobs where it’s needed until a purchase is possible for you.  

If you’re still debating whether to purchase or rent, check out the article "Buy or Rent the RB4000," which includes a quick reference guide to help you make the best decision for your business. 

Use the self-propelled dump container only when you need it.  

In addition to the average one-off jobs, some people choose to use the Equipter RB4000 to haul materials from their local suppliers when supply delivery is on hold or delayed. This also eliminates the cost of delivery and driver tip and gives you the confidence in knowing your supplies will be where you need them exactly when you need them. 

Who does the Equipter help? 

General contractors 

General contractors find the RB4000 helpful for roofing projects or where a smoother debris management system is needed on the job. Using the RB4000 for these jobs ensures that customers’ landscapes are protected, lessens physical stress on the crew, and raises productivity. 


As a renovator, you deal with tons of debris. Hauling drywall, crown molding, and more from a building to a dumpster clogging up the driveway can be physically wearing. You also likely have stray debris that refuses to go into the dumpster as you haul everything over the first time, leaving a mess in the driveway. Using the RB4000 allows you to keep the dumpster at the curb, helps your workers save their backs, and gets the job done faster.   

Restoration professionals 

The RB4000 helps fire and water restoration professionals find an easier way to get rid of wet drywall or damaged furniture. Taking debris from a building to the dumpster or lifting supplies to a second story has never been easier with the Equipter RB4000. 


Originally called the Roofer’s Buggy, the RB4000 was specifically designed for roofers. This piece of equipment streamlines the debris removal process, saves crews from needing to haul materials up a ladder, and protects customers’ landscapes from damage and debris.  

What is the cost of renting the Equipter? 

The cost to rent the Equipter varies by location and some Equipter rental businesses offer delivery and pick-up for your Equipter rental, saving you even more time on the job. Most equipment rental companies offer daily, weekly and monthly rates.
