Tent OX™ is Not Just for Pole Tents. It’s Great for Clear Span Installations Too!

The tent rental industry is abuzz over Tent OX’s power and efficiency when installing pole tents, but the nation’s tent and event companies are proving that Tent OX power dramatically improves efficiency for clear span installations too.

Mahaffey Fabric Structures (Tennessee), All Occasions Event Rental (Ohio), Chattanooga Tent (Tennessee), Lafayette Tents (Indiana), Classic Party Rental (California and nationwide) and PRO EM (Arizona) all report time and labor savings using Tent OX for clear span installations. One of our newest customers, Special Occasions Parties and Events (Oregon), uses Tent OX exclusively for structures.

Put up clear-span tents faster: In the time it takes a crew of two to drive one stake into blacktop with a powered, hand-held driver, the Tent OX with the OX driver attachment can drive three or more stakes with a no wear and tear on your crew.

Tent Ox Power and Agility Gets More Done with Fewer Crew

For structures larger than 20 meters, businesses will commonly rent a Reach Lift, but the machine’s huge wheel base challenges the operator to maneuver and place ballast blocks quickly. Tent OX, on the other hand, features articulated steering, so it’s agile enough to turn on a 10-foot radius as it easily lifts, carries and places blocks with inch-perfect precision.

Place and stack ballast blocks with ease. Tent OX attachments for Block & Roll and traditional ballast blocks allow you to place ballast with inch-perfect precision, travelling over delicate surfaces on which Reach Lift or skid steer vehicles aren’t allowed to go.

While a Reach Lift type of loader takes care of big tasks, the Tent OX delivers various other items on site, gracefully gliding over sensitive surfaces with its turf tires. The result is a job that is completed faster with fewer crew.

But there’s even more leverage to be gained when you factor in the attachments. They’re what make the Tent OX unique from all other machines, allowing you to replace most of the machines commonly used on site, including skid steering vehicles, while keeping your crews fresh for other work.

For instance, the Ox Hook moves blocks up to 3,600 lbs effortlessly, at speeds from 7-10 mph, before placing them accurately around the tent.  OX Fork, with its unique high back, carries large numbers of chairs, tables and staging materials from truck to tent site with the agility of a golf cart. OX Driver, another popular attachment for structures, easily drives 2,000 – 3,000 stakes directly into the black top without pre-drilling. It runs at a previously impossible rate of four to five stakes a minute, sustainable for hours on end with virtually no physical effort. Not only is it far faster than the one-stake-per-minute rate of speed crews currently achieve on blacktop when they use 50-60 pound, hand-held, powered stake drivers, but it also ensures that crews are not exhausted at the end of one day, so they’re more likely to show up on time and ready to get the job done the next morning.

A Growing Industry Means Big Potential for Profit

The potential for growth for businesses that specialize in structure tents is huge. More and more municipalities are increasing their codes and regulations for tent safety, and structures happen to meet these strict requirements more easily than do pole tents.

Additionally, the biggest events, such as large-scale auto auctions and sporting events like the PGA Championship and Super Bowl, prefer to use structures because they are safer than pole tents in harsh weather conditions. Structures also tend to be used longer into each season, delivering a bigger pay off in a shorter amount of time. Using Tent OX helps you take on more structure jobs and complete them faster, with fewer crew members, giving your company a strong, new revenue stream.

Are you ready to get behind the wheel of a Tent OX and experience how it can grow your structure business? Let’s get started!
