Beck Equipment currently has more than 150 machines, ranging from dozers, graders, loaders, articulated dump trucks, compactors, fork lifts, and more; along with more than 1,000 attachments, all of which are located at its 25,000-sq.-ft. facility in Preble, N.Y.
Beck Equipment is celebrating its 50th year in the construction industry. Founded in 1968 by Roger Beck, the company has progressively evolved and expanded to meet the needs of the industry and its customers, making it one of upstate New York's leading resources for equipment sales, rentals, parts and service, according to the company.
“It takes a lot of variables to make us a continued success: you need to know the needs of your local contractors,” said Keith Condon, Beck Equipment sales manager. “You need to have extensive knowledge of the aggregate market. You need to provide a diverse fleet of equipment to meet the individual needs of each consumer, and you need to have a parts and service team that can maintain continued support whenever it's needed. I am proud to say that we provide all of that.”
Beck Equipment's most recent fleet addition has been its Gorilla hydraulic breakers. Customers will now have 600 to 13,500 ft. lb. hammers readily available to rent on any of their excavators, or available to sell individually, as well.
“We have used other hammers in the past,” said Condon, “but our biggest problem was accessibility. It was very hard to receive a fast turnaround from the manufacturer and have wear parts available when needed.
“The geological demographics of this region demand that we have reliable hydraulic breakers accessible to our customers, and Gorilla hydraulic breakers has eliminated all of those issues for us. Headquartered in the United States, with factory warehouses throughout the country, waiting on parts is never an issue. They have truly set the bar with prompt response and impeccably fast turnaround. Most importantly, our service team loves them. Our mechanics are very pleased with the quality and the ease of working on them.”

The company has a 16 by 18 by 46 ft. paint booth, which is currently one of the largest and most technologically advanced paint booths in upstate New York, according to the company. The booth features the latest in air filtration standards and high intensity lighting. Beck is able to provide extensive body work and part fabrication. John Zachary, who manages the paint booth, works directly with local contractors to help them transport their equipment if needed, and provides free estimates.
Beck Equipment also provides line boring services. When link jointage on a machine wears out, Beck can weld them up and bore them to original tolerances. Beck also has an in-house hydraulic hose room and performs all of its own hydraulic hose repairs for its machines and customers.
