The QLTS is charged during the day by the
sunlight. That energy

for optimal performance. The energy is then
stored in heavy duty batteries.

When light is needed, the high efﬁciency LED lights switch on and off instantly. The QLTS optimize light output for the battery charge to provide quality light throughout the night.

Elmsford Location Gets New Awning
122 N. Saw Mill River Rd., Elmsford, NY 10523(across from the Paul Bunyan statue at the BP gas station)
If you've had the opportunity to drive by our newest location in Elmsford, you've definitely seen our new awning. Our customers have described it as "eye-catching", "cutting-edge", "bold" and "just as cool as the giant Paul Bunyan statue across the street".
With the new awning, beautiful new flowers and landscaping, large selection of new Takeuchi machines and wide-array of equipment and tools - we're 100% open for business and ready to serve the needs of our Westchester and Rockland customers.
Stop in for all your equipment and tool rental needs or to simply check out the sleek new machines we have for sale as NYC's authorized Takeuchi dealer (5 Boroughs, Westchester & Rockland). Our friendly staff will make you feel right at home.
Durante Rentals will be at Build Expo 2014
Durante Rentals will be at the 2014 Build Expo taking place on October 1 & 2 at the world-renowned Jacob Javitz Convention Center in New York. The Build Expo promotes the growth of regional building and construction industry markets.
Please make sure to stop by our NY Takeuchi booth located at the very entrance and check out our brand new Takeuchi line of excavators, skid steers, track loaders and wheel loaders. We'll have plenty of staff on-hand as well as free giveaways, contests, price quotes and more. We have a limited amount of free tickets available so please contactAdam Zunic if you'd like to attend. We hope to see you there!
As many of our valued customers already know, Durante Rentals holds season tickets to the Mets at Citifield. We try to reward our best customers with tickets from time to time and on the very rare occasion our owner, John Durante, will attend. As an avid Yankee fan, our gut feeling is that the post-game Huey Lewis and the News concert had something to do with his attendance on this particular night.
Can you spot John and his beautiful wife Diane in the crowd? Hint: See the big red arrow.
