I always itemize it. Some people may worry that the client will see you don't already own this equipment, and it will make you look less professional. But hopefully the client isn't hiring you based on the equipment you own, rather your knowledge and experience.

For example, I don't own a bobcat, so when I need one I rent. I always include this as a separate charge, and let the client know that this is a rental, so our scheduling of their job will be based on when the rental is available.

Be honest up front, it will go a long way.
