Unitize the load
Steel Strapping Econo Packs from Band-N-Go are valuable tools for rental shops and their contractor customers. Steel Strapping Econo Packs are 200-foot lengths of standard steel strapping in either 1/2- or 3/4-inch widths packed into a self-dispensing carton. These handy coils weigh only 10 pounds for 1/2-inch or 15 pounds for 3/4-inch material. The cartons are 10 1/2 by 10 1/2 by 1 1/2 inches. They are an ideal size for the service truck or to keep on a shelf in the shop. The steel strapping in these handy self-dispensing cartons can be used to unitize loads before lifting them onto a truck. A load that is unitized or bundled and then strapped down on the truck is more stable and secure than loose items loaded and strapped. A unitized load can be safely loaded with a forklift, saving time and money. Steel strapping can be used to bundle scaffolding, fencing, lumber and other construction or industrial products or materials. The standard grades and sizes of steel strapping used in the Econo Packs are compatible with all standard strapping tools. Steel Strapping Econo packs from Band-N-Go are produced and stocked in its facility in Vaughan, Ont., and proudly bear the Ontario Made logo.
The classy Classen

It uses strong linkages with no cables to get tangled in brush along with no-flat tires. Users can navigate through weeds, heavy brush and overgrown vegetation with ease.
Optimize the material feed
The Barreto 3107C chipper utilizes a series of load-sensing hydraulic valves to optimize material feed. As the load on the feed system increases, or as the chipper flywheel slows, the feed rate will automatically slow or stop to allow the flywheel to maintain maximum RPM. The feed wheel and motor are mounted to a tensioned pivot-arm system. The arms pivot on heavy-duty composite bushings instead of the plastic wear slides used by machines of similar size.

Further eCommerce functionality
Point of Rental has acquired Rental Hosting, a web design and hosting company that builds integrated websites for rental businesses. The acquisition marks another step in the company’s prioritization of eCommerce functionality. It acquired RentItOnline, another eCommerce platform, late in 2020.
“As we move eCommerce to the forefront, both as a company and as an industry, this acquisition gives us the resources to do so in innovative, thoughtful ways,” said Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris. “This will bring our teams closer together for collaboration earlier in the development process and allow us to better serve our customers’ needs.”
Rental Hosting provides fully integrated websites uniquely built for rental businesses, including eCommerce, customer portals, and online payments. Their sites display rental and sales inventory, show instructions and videos associated with each item, provide shopping cart functionality, capture customer contact information, and automate quotes. In addition, integrated customer portals allow customers to manage their own contracts, view items on rent (including job sites), pay contracts, and submit quote requests within a dedicated portal.
“Rental Hosting and Point of Rental have been a part of the same family, same community, for years,” said Rental Hosting CEO Caleb Yell. “This move won’t affect current Rental Hosting customers during the transition, and they’ll reap the benefits of our closer collaboration with Point of Rental’s development team as we build an even more tightly integrated eCommerce process.”
