The Rental Industry –
Professional rigging booms have been welded on for generations. Up until now, a rental company would have to decide which size, drive or tire style of fork truck they were going to specify as a rigging truck. They would then have to pay to have the fork truck shipped out and have a rigging boom welded to it, investing tens of thousands of dollars in one specific fork truck. Fork truck manufactures have made fork trucks in different sizes (Class 2, Class 3 and Class 4), different drives (Propane, Diesel or Electric) and different tires (Cushion, Rough Terrain or Pneumatic) so they can accommodate the customer’s changing environments. The invention of the RigReady Portable Rigging Boom System allows the rental company to bolt the boom on in less than 5 minutes to any of the trucks in their fleet to match the environment the customer is rigging in. The rental companies now have a better utilization of their capital investment by not specifying one size, drive or tire style to being their only rigging truck. This also satisfies the rental customer by customizing the fork truck and fitting it to the application that it is needed for.Scenario: A customer will come in and want to rent a fork truck with just the forks on it. The rental company will go to the trouble and expense to take off the conventional boom that is welded on the fork truck to rent it to the customer. A couple of days later a different customer will request to rent the same size truck but needs a rigging boom on it. The rental store has a boom on site, however it will not fit on another fork truck that he has in his fleet. This results in a lost rental for his store and a customer that did not get product that he/she needed. With RigReady available this will no longer be the situation.
You can see the many advantages of making a professional rigging boom system portable. RigReady is the first and only portable professional rigging boom system available. With the invention of RigReady the days of welding on a conventional rigging boom and dedicating that one specific fork truck as a rigging truck are gone. By making the booms portable, all of the companies above will get the most out of their capital investment. Making the booms portable and as versatile as they are to fit onto all the fork trucks and telehandlers is a great asset and capital savings. Fork truck manufactures recognized a long time ago that they had to make a variety of fork truck sizes, drives and tire styles to suit the end user’s needs. Now rigging clients can have that same advantage and adaptability to mount the booms to whichever truck fits their particular situation and environment.
We currently have RigReady designed to fit onto 16 different size,drive or tire style of trucks to utilize your entire fleet of fork trucks and cover 8 different markets.
