Fall maintenance, winterizing with air compressor

It is the time of year to begin preparing your home and yard for the winter months. This means completing projects you may have put off, such as building that tool bench or finishing exterior repairs on your deck, house or garage.

If you have water features in your yard, a sprinkler system or a pool or spa, you will need to winterize water pumps and lines to protect them from freezing.

An air compressor can make your job easier no matter what items are on your maintenance list. Air compressors will power a wide variety of air tools, from jack hammers to grease guns. Since home repairs and winterizing can mean needing everything from a socket wrench to a drill driver, an air compressor can make all the difference in your efficiency.

Protecting water lines and pumps in sprinkler systems and pools means draining them completely before temperatures drop to freezing. While the pipes can be drained manually, blowing out the pipes with an air compressor is recommended to ensure the pipes are protected. Once the water is turned off, an air compressor connected to the water line will effectively clear the pipes of all water.

When using an air compressor, it is important to check the psi limits on your air powered tools and to confirm the type of water lines running to your sprinkler system and pool to determine appropriate psi that can safely be used.

Sully’s offers for rent a 185 cfm towable air compressor that will handle everything from powering your air tools to blowing out water lines, making it easy for you to finish all your fall projects. Diesel powered with a psi range of 80 to 125, it provides convenience even in rural settings.

Check with our experts to get tips on using a variety of tools and an air compressor from Sully’s to winterize your home and yard this fall.

The most common choice for a Labor Day celebration is a cook-out, so be sure your grill is up to the task. You’ve probably been grilling out all summer, so check your propane tank and connections to be sure your grill is safe and ready to go.

Are you anticipating a big crowd? If your grill is looking a little too small, consider a larger grill option that provides more grill space for those burgers and chicken breasts. Sully’s has 2’ x 5’ propane or charcoal grills available for rent, as well as food carriers that make serving easier. Consider also options for propane burners, steamers and deep fryers to provide your guests with some different food options.

Summer tends to be prime time for tackling home improvement projects that have been put off throughout the year. Warm, sunny days and some vacation time may provide opportunity and motivation. Obviously warmer weather is best for outdoor projects, but even indoor projects seem to get more attention as the weather warms.

Among the top home improvement projects pursued as Ohio enters the summer months are exterior painting and kitchen remodeling, and there are good reasons for this.

Exterior painting

Painting your house is a big project, but mild summer weather and the long stretches of daylight make it more manageable and more pleasant. Tackle it yourself rather than hiring a professional and you can save a lot of money.

Kitchen remodeling

It may be interior work, but the dust that is stirred up from demolition and construction is much easier ventilated when you can open windows. Consider also how often you grill out in the summer. A kitchen under construction is not as inconvenient when you can use your grill for family meals.

At Sully’s, we aim to make these projects possible by offering rental of most of the tools you may need. For house painting, we carry pressure washers, paint sprayers, ladders and a full range of scaffolding supplies to help you safely access those hard-to-reach places. Work like a pro at a fraction of the cost.

Your kitchen remodel may be a few small changes or a complete rebuild of cabinets and storage, but having the right tools will make any project easier. At Sully’s you can find saws, drills, hardwood floor sanders and palm sanders, and floor tile removers. Remove wallpaper with a steamer or cut tile with a diamond blade tile saw. We have you covered no matter how extensive your remodel

Completing any summer project is easier with tools rented from Sully’s Tool Rental. Call today.

Environmental responsibility – it’s become prominent in nearly everything we do. Entertaining even a medium sized group, however, can create a surprising amount of trash.

From small to large groups, whether your event is family and friends or a more organized or formal gathering, as the host you want to keep things simple and within budget. Choosing disposable items can be inexpensive and can typically mean more time with guests and less time with prep and clean up.

At Sully’s, our goal is to provide rental options that allow you to enjoy your event, stay on budget and reduce some of that waste. By renting party essentials and décor items, you pay for only what you need—the one-day use of many of the things that will otherwise fill trash bags.

Consider the following options instead of paper or foam plates, plastic utensils, plastic tablecloths, plastic or foam cups, disposable serving trays, and disposable centerpieces:

  • Choose from an array of plates, bowls and fine china in styles that fit any party.

  • We offer a full range of serving platters and bowls, as well as buffet service that makes it easy to feed a large group.

  • Flatware in full place settings as well as knives and serving pieces are available to match casual to formal service

  • We can provide both based and stemmed glassware as well as bar service.

  • Choose linen napkins and tablecloths to complete your party—we do the laundry!

  • Centerpieces are available to fit any theme, including vases and candles.

Boost your sustainable effort even more by considering digital invitations and choosing a caterer that uses locally sourced foods.

At Sully’s, we are pleased to help you reduce your carbon footprint. Call us today for all your party needs.

Growing your own fresh vegetables is both rewarding and a healthy decision for your family. It does involve some work, however, and having the right tools can make this work a little quicker and easier.

If you grow flowers in your yard, you already know that certain basic tools are a must, and you probably keep them handy throughout the summer. You’ll need them for your vegetable garden too. These include:

  • Shovel, preferable a sturdy one with a gripping handle on the end for turning soil over and digging substantial holes for larger plants.

  • Hand Trowel for planting small plants, creating seed trenches and getting into tight spaces that need digging.

  • Hoe with a long handle to break up soil between rows, keep soil loose around plants, and save your back.

  • Pruning Shears, preferably kept sharp for trimming both small and woody branches and keeping flowering bushes and vegetable plants under control.

  • Weed Wacker to keep edges and walkways neat and weeds out of your gardens.

No matter how diligent you are with your gardens, weeds will be an issue, and in a vegetable garden it is crucial to keep them at bay if you are to get the best harvest possible. Anticipate spending time pulling weeds. For the stubborn ones, consider a notched cobra head tool to get under the weed and pull the root.

Building a garden

For vegetables or flowers, building a new garden takes some planning and some additional tools. You will want to first identify a location for your garden and determine a size. For vegetables, the amount of sunlight and the quality of soil are critical for maximizing your harvest. Remove grass from the area or use a weed wacker to trim it as short as possible, then turn it over with a shovel or tiller.

Be sure to get a sturdy wheelbarrow to haul additional soil and compost to fortify your garden and till these additives into the soil to create the perfect soil composition for your garden plans.

At Sully’s Tool Rental, we have what you need to create a garden you can be proud of. For the largest of gardens, we rent 5 and 8 horsepower tillers to work the soil. Sturdy weed eaters also are available for rent to clear your garden area or get an overgrown garden back in shape.

Check us out today for all the tools you need to be a successful gardener.

Hire a mariachi band to roam your party and entertain guests with authentic salsa and Latin tunes. You might also consider hiring a dance instructor to provide mini lessons in salsa, samba, rumba and other traditional Mexican dances. Lessons could be followed by a dance contest to keep your guests on top of their steps.

The Kubota SSV65 Skid Steer is the newest item available to rent at Sully’s Tool Rental. Why is this significant? Because while a skid steer can solve a variety of problems when dealing with challenging terrain, the Kubota SSV65 has features that go beyond.

If you work in construction, whether in business or as a DIYer, you know that a skid steer is an extremely versatile piece of construction equipment. The design of this piece allows you to both dig and lift in tight places, especially useful in residential areas or tight commercial areas. They also adapt well, with numerous attachments that can make your unit a snow blower, grader, tree puller and more. Whether you are planning excavation of a lot or you are knocking down and removing an old storage shed, a skid steer can handle the job.

Large and medium sized skid steers are ideal when a job needs a large backhoe, but such a unit will not fit in the space or when large diggers will do damage to the surrounding area. The Kubota SSV65 skid steer is a small unit and perfectly designed for small site development, landscaping, and patio and sidewalk grading.

Our new unit is heated and air conditioned, so it is comfortable in all weather conditions. It also features sliding front doors that allow entry and exit from the unit no matter the position of the loader, which is ideal for tight spaces. Additional features include side lighting and multifunction handles for high-flow machines.

Because the Kubota SSV65 is low profile and lightweight, it is appropriate for indoor projects as well.

At Sully’s, we have a variety of options suitable for your construction project. We understand that choosing the right skid steer is crucial. Consider the following and talk to one of our professionals:

  • The size of the space in which you must work

  • Whether portions of the area are paved, planted or developed

  • What materials will be loaded, moved or dumped and how far they will be hauled

  • Whether you will need to perform multiple tasks, such as hauling, grading or drilling

Whether you need a large, medium or small skid steer, rental is frequently the best option when projects are limited and for the DIYer. Skid steers are relatively easy to operate and at Sully’s we also have various accessories available for rent.

Call Sully’s Tool Rental today for more information about our new Kubota SSV65 skid steer or about our many choices in construction equipment and tools available for rent.
