Rent heavy equipment and make good money out of it rather than keeping it idle should be the intention of a person who has a construction machine and does not make any use of it. By renting heavy equipment people they not only make money by literally doing nothing but also ensure the machine does not go dead. If a construction machine has not been working for days there are higher chances that it will not even take a start on the day you need it. Therefore it is a must for one to make sure that the machine does not catch rust by sitting idle. So the best alternative is to let-it out in case you will not need it for the next few months. If you have a compaction roller it will not at all be a problem to rent it because there are whole lot of people who wants compaction rollers (Sheep Foot or Smooth) for road building work.
