I'm not completely sure what you are trying to do, but if I understand 
you correctly, why not simply get the numerators and denominators of the 
coefficients?

coeffs = CoefficientList[equ, x]

Numerator[coeffs]

Denominator[coeffs]

You can delete duplicates if desired.

DeleteDuplicates[Numerator[coeffs]]

DeleteDuplicates[Denominator[coeffs]]
