5 Reasons the Equipter RB4000 Can Withstand Winter Weather

Equipter RB4000 in the Winter
December 29, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.

By Equipter.  

Did you know that Equipter’s most popular drivable dumpster doesn’t need to be stored indoors? Here are five reasons the Equipter RB4000 can withstand the ice and snow.  

While most roofing jobs in the US don’t take place in the winter, the Equipter RB4000 is one roofing tool that’s not threatened by the winter elements. This drivable dumpster consists of high-quality parts that prevent snow and ice from causing damage, so you won’t have to worry about where to store your machine during the off season.  

What makes the Equipter safe to store outdoors? 

1. The 4.1 cubic-yard aluminum dump container is rust-resistant. Rust is caused when certain metals are exposed to the elements. Over time, corrosion weakens machines and leads to a less professional appearance on jobs. 

Carbon steel is one of those metals. It’s nearly twice as heavy as aluminum and far from rust resistant, which is why the Equipter is manufactured from rustproof aluminum.  

In addition, the high-quality paint used in finishing the equipment provides an extra layer of protection against corrosion. 

Not only is this wonderful when it comes to unforeseen rain showers or snow squalls on the job, it also allows the RB4000 to withstand Mother Nature's wintry mood swings without affecting its performance when roofing season starts up again. This gives Equipter owners the confidence they need in trusting they can leave the RB4000 outside during the winter while it’s not in use.   

2. The Equipter’s engine is encased and locked to prevent theft. 

Equipment theft has been an increasing problem. Machinery is difficult to recover once it disappears, and the company stolen from is left with the loss of a large investment and whatever profit that investment built into the bottom line. 

Equipter is dedicated to bringing you quality equipment that is not only protected from the elements, but also safeguarded from theft.  

The RB4000’s engine is encased to protect it from damage and prevent exposure to bad weather. The unit’s engine box also comes with a built-in lock and a key in order to keep your equipment from disappearing. This means no more stressing over potentially lost profits and having to replace equipment if you’re keeping the RB4000 outside in the winter. 

3. The Equipter RB4000 comes with a branded vinyl cover that protects the control panel. 

The RB4000 comes standard with a sleek black vinyl cover complete with the Equipter logo. This high-quality cover protects the valves from water and ice damage, extending the life of the hydraulic system.  

If you have an older unit that did not come with the control panel cover, or if you need a replacement, feel free to contact the Equipter Service Department at 717-661-3591 to purchase yours today! 

Having protection for your control panel ensures that your equipment will not be damaged when exposed to rough weather conditions, keeping it in good working order longer. 
 
4. The RB4000 takes high-viscosity oil.

The Equipter RB4000 uses high-viscosity hydraulic oil to ensure tip-top performance. The equipment’s hydraulic fluid remains at a consistent viscosity in a wider range of temperatures than average hydraulic fluid does, which means the components of the hydraulic fluid won’t break down or freeze in colder temperatures. 

Using top-quality hydraulic fluid enables you to store the RB4000 in cold environments without bringing damage to the many intricate parts of the machine.  

5. High-quality bearings prevent corrosion and seizing on the Equipter. 

Another feature that allows the Equipter RB4000 to withstand wet and cold weather is its bearings. The RB4000 and other Equipter products use high-quality bearings, which protect the shafts from corrosion and pivot points from seizing. 

This preservation makes it even safer to store your RB4000 outside in the winter.  

As you think about your equipment and where it could be stored, keep the points listed above in mind for your RB4000. Because of its industrial durability and quality, you might not need to find that extra space that you simply don’t have in your garage.
