Although diesel has high energy content compared to gasoline but its combustion releases dangerous exhausts into the environment. Governments and pollution regulatory bodies across the globe has established norms and regulations that requires diesel engines to produce almost negligible NOx and SOx emissions. This has opened the doors for OEMs to switch to hybrid and complete electric vehicles in the future. Electric construction equipment are not only zero emission machines but also produces very less heat, noise and vibrations.

Construction equipment rental companies use fleet management system to replace their old and aging fleet with new and upgraded fleet that meets the standards and norms set by the government and fulfils the need of customers.
