Recently, TALISMAN® Rentals attended ARA’s Rental show with an eye toward what’s new and different in the tool rental industry. This year we noticed a definite increase in the number of cordless power equipment exhibitors due to new and improved lithium-ion battery technology. This has created a diverse offering of long-lasting and long running tools that often can compete with the power corded tools. There is a safety element to cordless power equipment that is not always obvious. While on the job site, cordless equipment means no trip hazards result from multiple cords strewn across the site and no additional generator needed. And clean upRead More →

It’s essential to pay attention to flash flood warnings in your local community or while driving, but heavy rainstorms can lead to flooding on your construction site, too.
