Heavy Construction

Heavy Equipment Rentals from Altorfer

Important jobs require specialized equipment that can deliver performance and productivity at a low operating cost. Often, renting is the best way to achieve this. When you rent an excavator, backhoe or other construction equipment from Altorfer Inc., you are getting a quality Cat® machine that’s been designed to deliver the working advantages you need to succeed in a difficult economy.

As the exclusive Cat dealer serving eastern Iowa, northern Missouri and central Illinois, we have an extensive inventory of rental heavy construction equipment that’s been meticulously serviced to the company’s highest standards. Count on us for equipment and attachments that will drive productivity on any job site.

The Smart Choice for Today’s Construction Crews

Renting an excavator or other construction equipment is the smart choice for any temporary equipment need. While this includes one-off jobs where additional or specialized equipment is required, there are many other situations in which renting is appropriate:

    • You are working in a remote location or in harsh conditions where using your own fleet would involve excessive maintenance or transportation costs.
    • You want to maintain full productivity while your own equipment is out for repairs.
    • You want to avoid the financial implications of a lease and free up credit for other investments in your business.
    • You are considering expanding your fleet and want to try a machine out in real-world conditions before making a decision.

Whatever the reason, you’ll find the heavy construction equipment rental you need at Altorfer Cat. With an extensive inventory of rental backhoes, work tools and more, we can match you with a complete turnkey solution for your upcoming project.
