We take protecting your Ridgeland, Jackson, and Madison, MS home and your landscaping VERY SERIOUSLY.

Our main priority is always delivering an excellent customer experience and a huge part of that equation is making sure we use the right equipment for the job.

Every job. Done right. The First time.



Our Equipter is the ultimate machine to save your lawn and keep roofing debris off the ground.

Some of the key benefits it offers our team:

  • It powers itself. The Equipter is a self-propelled trailer that can fit into tight corners. It runs on a 13-horsepower Honda engine that takes it virtually anywhere on a job site. With a tight turning radius to navigate difficult spots and evenly distributed weight, it reduces the risk of property damage—and it won’t leave ruts in your lawn!
  • It lifts materials up to our crew. We care about the health of our crews and keeping them from hauling hundreds of shingles up a ladder on their backs is a huge benefit of the Equipter. The lift does the heavy lifting for us. Whether we’re raising heavy tools to the roof or lowering two tons of shingles to the ground, this roofing equipment improves our efficiency and helps us to maintain a much cleaner job site.
  • It catches debris before it has a chance to hit your lawn. We dump old shingles straight into the 10.5 ft wide bin. That means less clean-up for us and less damage to your property. The Equipter lowers the risk of property damage with its 4-foot roll-back feature, which allows us to position the container up and over your flower beds, bushes, and other exterior features.
  • It-dumps and hauls the debris away. The Equipter keeps us moving like the well-oiled machine we are! When the nearly 4,000-lb capacity container is full, we position the lift next to a trailer, truck, or dumpster under 12-feet high. Then we simply raise the container and unload it using the hydraulic tailgate. We complete our jobs faster and easier because we’ve invested in a fleet of Equipters that come to every job site! That means we’re able to lower the cost of your roofing project and pass those savings on to you!




The EQUIPTER makes life better for you –

our client.

In the end, the main goal of the Equipter is to do the job more efficiently.

That equals less hassle and more savings for our customers. At Watkins Construction & Roofing, our philosophy is not just to get in and finish the job quickly -it’s to do a superior job. Our Equipter allows us to work faster and better. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

    Our Equipters help keep you satisfied with your Watkins roofing experience. By using a smart debris management system you can enjoy fewer damages, like crushed Japanese maples or busted planters. We know that homeowners also love that the Equipter keeps their property looking tidy—not trashed.


    The Equipter also helps attract and retain a quality roofing crew because it significantly reduces the backbreaking labor that wears workers down. We care deeply about everyone on our team and we take their job satisfaction and safety very seriously.


    We don’t spend more time dealing with roofing debris than we need to. Our Equipters have reduced cleanup time by up to 80%—savings that translate into increased capacity and lower costs for our homeowners!


    When we can complete more jobs and create highly satisfied customers, we can build a healthier bottom line for our business—and that lets us take better care of our family, employees, and community.


    Cutting cleanup time and keeping crews fresher longer with an Equipter allows us to maximize productivity.


    It also allows us the ability to reduce supply delivery charges and delays by reducing the need to rely on delivery delays.


    Save energy during daily prep.

    We often need to get tools, tear-off shovels, and other roof repair tools on the roof. Our Equipter’s hydraulic-powered lift takes the hassle out of hauling everything across the site and up construction ladders, saving our crew time and energy at the beginning of the day.


    Trash cleanup time.

    Shoveling debris right into the Equipter reduces the need for a large ground cleanup crew. Whether we’re tearing off old shingles, built-up roofing, single ply membranes, or TPO, containing the mess is much simpler with the Equipter on the job. This can get more crew members on the roof to speed up tear-off and repair or installation without sacrificing the quality that Watkins is known for.


    Improves residential and commercial flat roof replacement.

    When we’re replacing flat roofing systems our Equipters help us get jobs done faster, boost employee morale, and further improve customer satisfaction. The liftable dumpster is used on all residential and commercial roofing projects and on any kind of project – from steep slope roofs to flat roofs. 


    From setup to production to cleanup, the Equipter has revolutionized how we view everyday worksite tasks.
