While larger pieces of heavy equipment work well for high-volume projects that require maximum power and performance, some jobs require machines that can maneuver in tight spaces. Cat® compact construction equipment is perfect for job sites where a smaller footprint and more precision are essential. Use it for tasks like lot clearing, light demolition work and residential landscaping.

Skid Steer Loaders

Skid steer loader rentals give you maximum job site versatility and flexibility. Their lighter weight enables them to move effortlessly over all types of terrain and makes them easy to transport to and from the site. They’re also relatively simple to control. And with the wide range of attachments — such as buckets, augers, rakes, hammers and grapples — that are compatible with most Cat skid steer loader rentals, you can perform multiple tasks with one machine.

Multi Terrain Loaders

These lightweight track loaders are well suited for jobs where enhanced floatation and low ground pressure are essential. Use them for earthmoving and loading tasks consisting of variable ground conditions or softer terrain. They’re an excellent choice for forestry, landscaping, material handling and other applications that require a lighter touch or when the potential for disrupting the environment is a concern.

Mini Hydraulic Excavators

The smallest version of the Cat excavator family is perfect for digging in tight quarters. It’s easy to maneuver and has less of an impact on lawns or softer ground. Advanced hydraulic systems enhance the machine’s productivity and efficiency. Typical applications include digging holes for swimming pools, irrigating farming fields, performing underground utility line repairs and handling light landscaping tasks.

All units in our rental inventory feature low operating hours and come inspected and serviced as necessary by our team of factory-trained technicians. Various models and configurations of compact construction equipment are available, making it easy to match the right machine to any upcoming job.
