The noun "equipment" is call a collective noun. Collective nouns are nouns that refer to a group of people, animal, plants or things but are plural surrounded by form. Both a singular verb and a plural verb can be used after a collective noun. A singular verb is chosen if the user thinks of the group as a single component and a plural verb if the user thinks of the group as a quantity of individuals.

More often "equipment" is used as a single component, so a singular verb is used. correct: the following equipment is, was, isn't, wasn't
incorrect: the following equipment are, aren't, don't,

Equipment. It's a singular plural word.


Equipment is the plural. The singular is "a piece of equipment". But equipment always take a singular verb. It's the same as furniture.
