Wide range of features
Bomag’s versatile BVP Series single-direction plate compactors are durably designed for superior performance on a variety of jobs, from soil or asphalt compaction to paver and patio installation. Powered by air-cooled Honda gasoline engines equipped with low oil alert, the BVP Series plate compactors are built to withstand the rigours of daily use. An engine protection frame guards against incidental damage, while vibration isolation extends engine and overall equipment longevity. A bolt-on exciter is easy to remove, keeping maintenance time and cost to a minimum. The BVP Series includes two models. The BVP10/36 weighs 183 pounds, covers a working width of 14.2 inches and produces 2,250 pounds of centrifugal force. The BVP18/45 weighs 201 pounds, has a working width of 17.7 inches and delivers 4,050 pounds of centrifugal force. A wide range of features and options make the BVP Series ideal for professionals and do-it-yourself customers alike. The base plate offers extra width for compaction below fences or boundaries. An optional Vulcolan mat helps prevent damage to paving stone or brick surfaces. A 1.8-gallon water tank can be quickly removed without tools, and a water sprinkler system is available as an option. Each compactor’s foldable and removable steering handle is isolated from vibration. Manoeuvrability to, from and around a jobsite is simple, thanks to a balanced lifting point, carrying handles and optional transport wheels.
Creates a modern look
National Event Supply has introduced a new line of spandex linens offering a modern, contemporary esthetic for any event. Each cover is 100 per cent wrinkle-resistant and designed with leg boots to ensure table covers are protected from damage and dirt. These table covers are available at competitive wholesale prices and ideal for party rental companies, hotels, weddings, and more. Available sizes and colours include six-foot and eight-foot rectangle spandex table covers in ivory, black, and white; or spandex cocktail table covers in ivory, black, white, burgundy, royal blue, orange, champagne and red.
New machines for Canada
Sometimes less is more. Weber MT is introducing two brand new machines in Canada for the first time at the Canadian Rental Mart 2014: the CF 1i and the SRV 590. While these newly enhanced machines are lighter weight, you can still rely on their robust design. The CF 1i compactor is suited for compaction of sand and gravel as well as block paving materials. Improvements include a redesigned base plate for higher rigidity and a raised front edge that reduces debris and provides smoother operation. At only 145 pounds, this compactor provides an impressive 2,500 pounds of centrifugal force – 10 per cent more than the previous model.
The main feature of the new SRV 590 is its light weight of 130 pounds. It is almost 20 pounds lighter than the prior models but the output power is not compromised. This vibrating tamper with its Honda GX 100 engine is the solution of choice when it comes to compacting soil for the construction of channels and pipes, for gardening and landscaping purposes and during road construction. What is more, the powerful, multi-stage air filtration system – including cyclone pre-cleaner – guarantees a high level of operational safety.
Speed and durability
The Ox TC15 diamond blade has a large 15 millimetre segment height. It combines excellent performance with speed of cut and long life. Applications include concrete products, roof tiles, blocks, and all general building materials.
Star Diamond will feature its Ripper G/P diamond blade, a general-purpose blade built to exceed your customers’ expectations. It will cut most concrete and masonry products and is roll tensioned at the factory to provide straight, trouble-free cutting right out of the box. Star Diamond expects dealers armed with this blade will be able to get back some of the local blade business they had previously lost to telemarketers.
Star Diamond will display the EDCO CPM8 Scarifier. With its eight-inch working width, the CPM8 can scarify approximately 350 to 500 square feet per hour at a depth per pass of 1/8 inch.
It removes traffic lines at 800 to 1,000 lineal feet per hour. The power source is located over the drum to eliminate vibration and maximize surface contact. The CPM8’s compact design and front-mounted lifting handle make loading, unloading and handling easy. It is vacuum port equipped and can come with an optional water misting system and/or edger attachment that allows the CPM8 to get within 1 3/4 inch of any vertical surface. Suitable for sidewalk trip hazard repair; concrete and coatings removal; floor cleaning and/or preparations; creating non-slip surfaces; and traffic line and marking removal.
Classy and affordable
National Event Supply’s line of Serenity crystal stemware will add a sparkle to any table.

Available in multiples of six, Serenity crystal stemware is a great value and available to purchase at a fraction of the price of many leading brand names. With crystal this affordable, operators can provide a high-end look to customers while keeping costs reasonable and helping improve return on investment.
Designed for more efficient operation, Bomag’s BW90AD-5 tandem vibratory roller features intuitive controls and optimum all-around visibility. Highly manoeuvrable and fuel-efficient, the roller is an ideal solution for a wide variety of small and medium asphalt compaction projects.

There is easy access for maintenance to the fuel filter and separator. Uniquip’s air-end exchange program means less service calls for the rental house.

Data on the fly
Mobile WorkForce from Point-Of-Rental empowers workers on a jobsite as well as in the rental yard, capitalizing on their mobility. Many rental employees don’t work behind the counter or have access to electronic information or computer systems. Mobile WorkForce is designed to allow those employees to update contract-related information in real time from their mobile device or tablet. For example, a driver delivering a high-reach lift to a jobsite can open the contract from that site and take a photo of the item delivered as well as have the customer sign for it right on the device. The signature capture is instantly reflected in the contract, eliminating the need for paper to be delivered back to the office and filed. Similarly, if an employee is sent out to survey a site for delivery and setup, notes can be added to the contract or reservation, detailing the surface and size of the area or any other number of logistical elements. A web-based application rather than a device-specific app, Mobile WorkForce can be used with any mobile device, be it a smartphone, a tablet or even a laptop. With options to add call logs, photos, signatures, arrival, departure and on-the-way notifications, Mobile WorkForce offers multiple possibilities to enhance a rental store’s success.
One-man stump grinder
Visit E-Quip Distribution to see its faster, easier-to-use, portable, one-man stump grinder, the Dosko 337. All Dosko stump grinders are designed with safety in mind. The front-mounted cutter wheel provides maximum operator safety at all times.

Features include a side discharge that ejects cuttings out and away from the machine and the operator and a narrow, 32-inch profile that allows the grinder to be easily maneuvered through most gates, paths and walkways. The optional tow bar allows the Dosko 337 to be rigged to tow behind any vehicle with a hitch.
