Equipter Returns to FRSA's Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Expo

Nothing gets us more excited than sharing our innovative equipment with roofers and contractors, which is why we love attending the Florida Roofing & Sheet Metal Expo by FRSA every year.

FRSA Equipter RB4000

This year, our booth was hopping at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, FL on Thursday, July 18, and Friday, July 19! 

Up Close and Personal with the RB4000

We parked our signature product, the RB4000, right inside the booth space and raised it into the angled working position, open at full 10’ catch span.

Families and roofing contractors alike came to our booth, curious about the raised RB4000. Some were familiar with our favorite product, others finally excited to see it in person. We gave a tutorial of the easy-to-use control panel and spent time taking questions. 

We also ran a video highlighting the process from production to performance, giving attendees an inside look at our manufacturing facility in Lancaster, PA and the RB4000 in action.

Building Relationships

Having been in the roofing business ourselves, we understand the struggles roofers go through every day. And we’ve seen the frustrations of homeowners when they come home to a not-yet-cleaned-up yard and crushed flowerbeds. 

FRSA-David-NisleyWe focus on building trust with roofers and construction crews by providing unbeatable equipment that helps them build trust with their customers, whether they choose to rent or purchase the RB4000. 

Equipter rental business owner David Nisley paid our booth a visit, too, sharing his passion for the RB4000 with other visitors. 

The RB4000

Equipter manufactures many pieces of roofing equipment to make roof repair and replacement easier on installation and cleanup crews, but our most popular product is the RB4000. We love sharing its innovative features, from the 13-horsepower Honda engine to the rust-resistant aluminum container that lifts up to 12’ high with a 10’ catch span. And roofers love using it just as much.

We have over 120 rental locations across the US, so it’s easy for roofers who attended FRSA’s expo to try the power of the RB4000 before they decide whether to fully invest in it.



About the Company

Equipter is a family-owned company that’s been improving the roofing industry since 2004. Headquartered in Lancaster, PA, Equipter manufactures and sells various pieces of roofing equipment but is most known for its RB4000, the lightweight self-propelled, dump trailer that catches and transports old shingles and other debris from the roof to the on-site dumpster.

About the Owner

Aaron-BioHaving owned and operated a family-run roofing business for over 15 years, Aaron Beiler of Lancaster, PA, founded Equipter in 2004 and began manufacturing the roofer’s buggy after getting tired of he and his workers completely exhausting themselves during cleanup every day.
