Add some excitement to your next event. We rented the air blower from Bob to use with an Air Dancer we had. Worked perfectly! You can also rent a red, white, and blue Air Dancer from Bob.
Transplanting trees the easy way with equipment from Bobs!
Just got off the phone with Bob himself. Now this is the way to do business. Tlak to the customer, answer all her silly questions, give ideas that might help and have reasonable prices.
I picked up this 1956 Chevy BelAir project car in Salt Lick, Kentucky this past week, using the car trailer that I rented from Bob. It handled very well and was easy to use. I will be renting it again.
Thanks, Bob!!
Excellent equipment at Bob's rental center!!
Thank you for the great service. The landscape trailer was perfect. I was able to tow it with my little truck and it was rugged enough to handle the chicken coop. Now we just need some chickens :)
Great place Def rent from them again

Oh no! A mouse house! 🐭🏑
They just looove to make their nests in lawn mowers, tractors and snowblowers.


Something chewed right through this gas tank! Guess they were hungry? πŸ˜‹πŸ€”


Haven’t seen any of these saws in a while and today I’ve got 2 identical saws in perfect condition! Can you guess what year they were made?

Update Regarding Coronavirus COVID-19
In the ever evolving situation with the virus, the time has come to make some additional changes to protect myself, my family, my customers and my community. Starting today I will be keeping the front door locked and the fences will be closed and locked as well. I will be coming in to work everyday and will be available to help you out in any way that I can, but I am not allowing anyone to come into the store. I can safely repair any of your lawn and garden equipment without direct human contact. I can also rent you any equipment you might need. I offer pickup and delivery as well as my parking lot if you would prefer to drop off/pick up your equipment yourself. I can accept credit cards over the phone for payment and rental contracts can be signed via email. Currently, I do not have any U-Haul trucks for rent, however, if I do get some in, they will only be rented via the U-Haul Truck Share 24/7 website. You will need to create an account and then you can rent a truck without needing to come into the store. If you arrive at the store and the door is locked, please feel free to give me a call at (518) 674-3958 and I will do what I can to assist you.
Be safe.


In light of recent events regarding COVID-19, I would just like to give an update to all of my loyal customers and let them know what is going on. For now, I will be open during normal business hours (Monday - Saturday, 8 AM - 5 PM), unless otherwise directed by federal, state and local governments. In an effort to maintain social distancing I would just like to remind folks of the multitude of ways I can help with your rental equipment needs and tune-ups/repairs during these uncertain times. If you need to rent something or have your lawn mower serviced, please feel free to call, text, email or reach out on social media, and I can schedule a time to deliver/pick up your equipment. Payments can all be done over the phone via credit card and contracts can be signed via email. Spring is upon us and it is time to get your lawn mowers and tractors ready for the upcoming season. All of our services and prices are listed up on our website. Please contact me to make an appointment and I can arrange pickup and delivery or you can drop it off and leave me a note with your name, number and work needed and I will take care of it. If you need to rent a U-Haul truck, go to their website and set up an account. From there you will have access to 24/7 check in without needing to come into the store. Everything I do here can be done without direct human contact as sad as that sounds but it can be done. So please let me know how I can help you get through the upcoming weeks or months. As this is situation changes just about every day, I will be sure to let you know of any updates.

Thank you for reading. Stay safe and stay healthy.
