  • Articulated trucks: Cat articulated trucks offer automotive-style comfort, with simple controls and a specially engineered operator station that prevents fatigue and keeps your team productive, even on a long shift. We rent the 730C2 and 745 models — reliable performers with fuel-efficient ACERT™ engine technology for lower operating costs.
  • Asphalt pavers: Cat engineers its asphalt pavers for versatility at any job site. Our rental fleet includes the AP255E, a compact model ideal for urban applications, and the larger AP1055F, a high-production unit capable of taking on big jobs such as airport runways, highways and parking lots.
  • Backhoe loaders: Count on Cat backhoe loaders for any application requiring digging, trenching, back-filling or material handling. The company’s products are the ideal rental solution for general construction, demolition, landscaping and roadwork. We currently rent the 420F2/420F2 IT, 430F2/430F2 IT and 450F models.
  • Compact track and multi-terrain loaders: All Cat compact track and multi-terrain loaders feature an advanced undercarriage that offers excellent traction and stability. Our construction equipment rental fleet includes options for any job, including those in remote areas and rough terrain.
  • Compactors: Choose a Cat compactor for leveling, finishing, waste management and other applications where fast, cost-effective compaction is a necessity. Our rental fleet includes vibratory rollers, tandem rollers and soil compactors — all of which feature a small footprint for easy transport to your work site.
  • Dozers: In job sites all around the word, Cat Bulldozers remain the gold standard for performance, reliability and fuel economy. The current generation, available exclusively for rent from H.O. Penn — continue this legacy with a host of refinements designed to lower operating costs and increase productivity. From the biggest job to the smallest, H.O. Penn has the Dozer to match your needs.
  • Excavators: We rent a large selection of Cat excavators, ranging from the 23.5 horsepower 303.5E2 CR — ideal for light construction and residential landscaping work — to the heavy-duty 374F L. All machines are well-maintained and come equipped with everything you need to get started.
  • Skid steer loaders: Cat skid steers are a compact alternative to the company’s track loaders. Our rental units offer performance and safety without compromising ease-of-use. Several models are available, with operating capacities from 1,500 to 3,700 pounds and a variety of vertical and radial lift configurations.
  • Telehandlers: Telehandlers combine the features of a forklift and a boom lift, effectively doing the work of two machines at once. For this reason, they offer a great way to get the most out of your rental budget. Available models include the Cat TL1055D, TL1255D, TL642D and TL943D.
  • Wheel excavators: Cat wheel excavators are capable of taking on nearly anything their tracked counterparts can, but with the advantage of being more economical to move within and between job sites. As a result, they’re an excellent option for renting — one that will save you money while increasing your productivity.
  • Wheel loaders: A true industry mainstay, Cat wheel loaders can be found hard at work on job sites around the world. The H.O. Penn heavy equipment rental fleet includes several models ranging from compact to large. Choose a Cat machine to benefit from world-class efficiency and versatile material handling performance.

Cat equipment rental can free up your business’ capital. An expense is only incurred for the equipment when it is needed for a particular job. The extra capital you save through renting equipment from H.O. Penn can be applied to the other demands in your business so you can grow profitably. Release your business from the costs associated with equipment ownership, from storage to maintenance.


No need to maintain a storage yard with heavy-duty equipment rentals from H.O. Penn. Just give us a call or simply drop off the equipment at the nearest H.O. Penn location when you’ve finished using it. We’ll take care of the equipment storage, which saves you time and money now and later.

Heavy equipment rentals won’t appear as a liability on your business’ balance sheet. So renting can actually increase your borrowing power by offering a better ratio of assets to liabilities. It’s a significant benefit when you’re replacing a piece of equipment that’s integral to your day-to-day tasks, repairing damage to your headquarters after a storm or managing your company during your off-season.


Equipment ownership can be costly, from fueling to storage and routine maintenance to repairs. The value of equipment depreciates over time — but with heavy-duty equipment rentals, that’s a non-issue for you. Renting from H.O. Penn allows you to use the latest technology equipment without the concern of costly depreciation. No more trying to get the job done with old, worn-out equipment, which can lead to other drawbacks in the form of lowered productivity, decreased turnaround times and more.


In every operation, there are essential pieces of equipment to your business. Now that you have some older machinery, you may be considering buying a new model of it and would like to operate it on your job to make sure it suits you before making that potential purchase. What better way to thoroughly try out equipment than to rent a similar machine from the large selection of heavy construction equipment rentals at Penn Rents?


Your job requirements are always changing, and you need to stay up with your customers’ demands. You may not always have the right equipment to get the job done, but we do. Rely on H.O. Penn to quickly supply the heavy-duty equipment you need to get the job done. With our expansive inventory of heavy equipment rentals near you, you’re free to bid on specialized projects, letting you build your customer base and reputation in your service area, which can lead to even more work for you and your team.
