Tools That Are Best Rented, Not Purchased

Some tools are so expensive or rarely used that it makes sense to rent. All rental equipment should come with safety guidelines and documentation proving it has been regularly serviced. Look for any damage before signing rental contracts.

Heavy-Duty Drill

Rent a heavy-duty drill for large projects. It is possible to burn out your household drill's motor if it is not sufficiently powerful for the task such as drilling a large number of holes in concrete and masonry. Use a core drill bit for ducting or plumbing. The best core drill bits are diamond-encrusted for effective and efficient cuts. Rental companies may charge extra for each.
