There are many kinds of concrete flooring tools and machines. Different machines are suitable for various construction types. For example, laser screed is ideal for large-area concrete flooring projects, and truss screed is suitable for some concrete road projects. There is also the all-rounder roller screed that we are going to mention today. It is not only suitable for various concrete floors and pavement construction, but also very suitable for use in permeable concrete construction. The emergence and development of these machines significantly reduce the labor intensity of construction personnel. However, the prices of individual types of machines are staggering. Renting one of these machines seems to be a good choice. Today, we’ll discuss which is more suitable for you, roller screed rental, or purchase?
What is roller screed
Before discussing, we first introduce what roller screed is. In some previous articles, we have introduced what roller screed is more than once. The roller screen is a very simple machine. It is composed of two pull rods that drive the roller tube and rotate on the concrete to compact the concrete. The other rod has no power and is only used to maintain its direction of movement. Its structure is very simple, and its weight is very light. Take Hiking GPJ-200d as an example. Its weight is only around 20 kg. So it is not so much a machine, as it is an electric tool, and even many electric tools are more complicated in structure. It can be said that the roller screed is just a very simple mechanical product, which makes it difficult to sell at high prices no matter how it is improved. If you are a professional concrete contractor, you can buy one yourself instead of looking for a concrete roller screed rental supplier.
How to use roller screed
The usage of Roller screed is very simple. You hardly need any training. You need to assemble it, put the roller tube on the formwork, and hold the handle tightly after turning on the switch. Some roller screed rental suppliers often say that we can give you professional guidance when renting our machines. In fact, the usage of roller screed is so simple. The above few sentences almost summarize its usage. So if you are looking for roller screed rental for technical guidance, it is really better to buy one by yourself.
Roller screed rental price and sales price
roller screed is a very simple machine, and its price is very low. Take GPJ-200d roller screed as an example: the flattening machine’s price is only 800.00 USD (excluding freight). If you rent a roller screed, the daily rent is around 100usd. If your project is relatively large and takes more than ten days to complete, renting the machine is enough to buy one. Roller screed rental also has certain risks. Because the rented roller screed is generally machines that have been used for a long time, many machines are already aging, and there is a risk of damage. In many cases, damage to the rented machine requires compensation at the original price, so instead of taking the risk to rent a roller screed, it is better to buy a new one.
In summary, we can draw a conclusion. Roller screed is not a machine suitable for leasing. At the same time, we also found that compared with other machines, roller screed has very few leasing companies. This is determined by its properties, application scope, and value. The roller screed is so cheap and so versatile that many concrete contractors deserve one.
