Conquest Equipment and Southeast College Announce New Scholarship

Southeast College is excited to announce a new scholarship partnership with Conquest Equipment. Conquest has committed to a new scholarship directed towards students enrolled in the Heavy Equipment Truck and Transport Technician program. The first scholarship will be awarded at the annual Graduation and Scholarship award ceremony scheduled for June 16, 2023, at the Southeast College Estevan Campus.

The scholarship will emphasize student financial needs with considerations of academic achievement and community involvement. The value of the scholarship is $1000.

“We are very pleased to partner with Conquest Equipment for the announcement of this new scholarship,” states Kassandra Lawrenz, Manager, College Advancement. “Conquest is not only our next-door neighbour at our campus but also has provided work placement opportunities for our Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport Technician students.”

“Giving back to our community is important to us here at Conquest Equipment. Our company has a community initiative, where each month, one of our team members chooses an organization that Conquest will donate to,” explains Trinda Jocelyn, Marketing Coordinator for Conquest Equipment. “When Southeast College was chosen, we thought what a great way to give back to the community and support our industry. We are proud to be able to offer support to new and upcoming Heavy-Duty Technicians!”

Southeast College is proud to offer innovative and flexible programming that encourages students to learn where they live.

2023 Rental Fleet Expansion Will See More Compactors, Dumpers, and Supporting Equipment

With the new year comes big plans here at Conquest. Our team spent significant time planning some big things this past December. We reviewed what worked and what could be improved and created a clear path forward through 2023.

2022 was a strong year here at Conquest Equipment, and that is thanks to our loyal customers. Thank you! We plan to continue our customer service as always, but with a new and improved customer experience. (More details on that to come soon.

What is the plan for 2023?

We have worked hard acquiring additional new late-model, low-hour compaction units to add to our large fleet. We want customers to expect quality units in any equipment we rent.

By focusing on quality compactors, we ensure that you will have maximum uptime on your projects, with minimal downtime waiting on repairs or delays.
Here are some of the things you get to look forward to when you choose to rent soil compaction equipment from Conquest this year:

  • More extensive inventory of 84" units, all standard with enclosed cabs, Heat & AC
  • Increased number of 56" and 66" wide compactors offered

What else are we planning in addition to compactors in our rental fleet?

If you have looked over our website or done business with us in the past, you know that we also rent wheeled dirt dumpers and hydraulic breakers. The two categories will also see an increased availability in our lineup.

In addition to expanding the number of 6-ton and 11-ton dumper units and hydraulic breakers, we are adding support equipment.

One area of improvement that we identified was to increase our 'other' equipment. If you need to rent equipment like water trucks, mini excavators or compact wheel loaders to complement the soil compactors or dumpers you have on-site - those will be available as we enter the 2023 rental season.

Here is a snapshot of what we will have for rent this year:

  • A larger inventory of 6-ton and 11-ton wheeled dirt dumpers
  • Rubber Track Crawler Carriers
  • 11-ton Off-road Flat Deck units
  • More extensive inventory of Hydraulic Rock Hammers with a greater cross-section of sizes
  • Water Trucks - 2000/gallon and 4000/gallon units
  • Mini Excavators
  • Compact Wheel Loaders (1-2 Yard Capacity)

We aim to provide our customers with a one-stop option when renting soil compactors and dirt dumpers. Of course, expanding our fleet to our full vision will take time, but we are definitely making progress and already have lots to offer anyone in the heavy construction industry looking to rent. If you have ideas as to what would be helpful to you on a job site where compactors or dumpers are used, we are willing to listen.

Compaction Equipment: Why Renting Might Make Sense for Your Business

With spring around the corner and contractors gearing up for a busy 2022 you may be thinking - why rent? And more specifically, why rent from Conquest Equipment?



Renting or buying heavy equipment online seems to be a thing now. Online options make sense in lots of ways, considering the year we've had. It also gives busy people that option of looking into equipment at a time that works for them.

We make selling your surplus heavy equipment headache free

Selling equipment can be complicated and frustrating. Often, we hear from customers that they do not have time to get their surplus equipment listed and sold or that they don’t want to deal with the whole process. So, we offered to help.

This past year has been one for the books. It has been strange in a lot of ways and eye opening in others. Most of all it has been tough on people and on businesses.
