The Tent Installation Professional’s “Do-It-All” Solution

Tent OX pairs a powerful articulated loader with an integrated suite of installation tools, giving tent rental companies a fundamental new system for reducing install times and lower labor costs.

Since its introduction in 2014, Tent OX has revolutionized the way rental operations put up commercial tents. It arrives on the job site at a time where labor costs are at all-time highs. Buying a Tent OX to enhance efficiency is one of the few things tent rental companies can do to raise their profit ceilings.

Tent OX drives stakes
Avant loaders are configured factory-direct by Tent OX for maximum productivity.

Used in hundreds of locations from coast to coast, and to Hawaii and beyond, it replaces tired, decades-old tools with:

#1  HYDRAULIC POWER: Traditional machines and pneumatic stake drivers can’t keep up with Tent OX.  Mobile, hydraulic power combines with more than 10 purpose-built Tent OX attachments to speed commercial tent installs.

#2  HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY: Tent OX reduces operating costs to put more profit in your pocket. With a couple weeks of experience, you can complete installations about 40% faster than you do right now, with smaller crews.

#3  FASTER MATERIALS HANDLING: Tent OX eliminates hand carries from truck to tent site. It rolls damage-free across the same pristine lawns and playing surfaces from which other machines are banned.

#4  ALL-IN-ONE VERSATILITY: With a suite of quick-change attachments, one machine helps crews work smarter, safer, and faster.

#5  A BOOST IN CREW MORALE: Tent OX takes over the most physically demanding tasks, curbing crew attrition over the season and over the years.
