“The rental program gives customers greater flexibility in budgeting for replacement and maintenance,” said global product manager Brad Pronschinske. “In the past, companies that couldn’t afford extended downtime were forced to purchase a backup motor for shale shakers and other vibratory equipment. With the new program, Martin Engineering offers rental as an alternative, with no money down and a fixed cost per month, yet it continues to protect customers from costly downtime and emergency capital expenditures.”

                “It’s nearly impossible to predict when a vibrator might fail,” Pronschinske said. “So it can be very difficult for customers to budget expenses for spares or replacements. But very few companies can afford to let equipment sit idle while repairs are being performed. A rental unit gives them the backup they need, without the large one-time cost.” Depending on the number of units rented, Martin Engineering will provide customers with spare vibratory drives as part of the rental agreement.

                The rental option is also expected to bring value to purchasers of used equipment, providing another way to improve equipment uptime and maintain system throughput and overall productivity.
