Mythbusting telematics

The pace of change is quick. Ferris Bueller said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” But we don’t want you to miss it.


No matter the number of pieces of equipment in one’s fleet, a rental store – and its customers – want to know where it all is at all times.

Editorial: Move slow and protect things

A quick flip through our pages this month brings a recurring theme to mind: the constant flow of new technology into the world of construction and tools. In just the 12 years I’ve been editing this magazine, I’ve seen Tier VI diesel, lift load sensing, virtual reality training, telematics, lithium battery power, remote and automated equipment control, digital vehicle security and a whole suite of software advances either introduced or expand hugely in importance and market penetration. Yet many of these technologies are still not seen in the average rental fleet. Why?

Telematics – when more data is the enemy of good data

When it comes to telematics solutions, less can be more if the less that you’re getting is properly analyzed and effectively communicated. Our industry needed something that targets the right data, and something designed specifically with input from an OEM has been proven to be the best solution for off-highway fleets.


Over the past few years, the global construction industry has navigated unprecedented times with high highs and low lows brought on by the unanticipated pandemic. As a result, the dynamic on today’s job site has changed and new megatrends have surfaced.

United Rentals surpasses 335,000 telematics-enabled assets

United Rentals has announced it has surpassed 335,000 pieces of equipment outfitted with telematics technology in its rental fleet. The equipment includes aerial work platforms, earthmoving equipment, generators, all-electric trucks, compressors, e-dumpsters, light towers and more.

Delay the rust payday

Your degree of success in the equipment rental business depends heavily on your equipment staying in good workable condition for as long as possible. While it is necessary to periodically maintain and repair the mechanical aspects of the equipment – such as engines, motors, brakes, scissor lifts and so on – another critical need that may not initially come to mind, but becomes obvious as the years progress, is rust prevention. » Read More...
