Rental Mart looks great
March 22, 2016 - Those electing to look at used equipment missed one of the best show floors in recent Rental Mart history, featuring booths packed with more heavy iron than the show has seen in a long time. Stanmore, SkyJack, Haulotte, Genie, A.E. Sales and Cavalier all had big lifts on the floor. There were no fewer than eight software companies exhibiting, presenting a wealth of choice for those looking to upgrade their systems. There was extra interest in the room with Occupational Safety Group and Haulotte running scissor safety training on the first day, and Fuels Learning Centre and L.B. White providing propane heater fuelling training on the second. The propane course got an extra lift from Stephenson's Rental Services, who provided a last-minute 100-pound cylinder, and Hy-Cor International, who helped out with an extension cord.
