Not too bad....usually a small pile in front of the garage door, depending on snowfall....would love a PXPL blower....cleans up nice.

I was impressed. Haven't used one in years and it worked like a dream.Had to figure out the best angle to tilt bucket.After 10 minutes i was up to speed. Funny,I've owned 50% of it for the last 5 years or so and this was the first time I saw it ! It was stored at my friends shop.Have to bring welder on site and weld a repair link on one of the chains and weld one end of a tooth bar back onto chain but overall in great shape ,wasn't used very much.Never used a harley rake,pros and cons of both.

If you're doing a lawn reconstruction, its worth it to use a harley rake to take the sod out and then rockhound.

I think you've missed what's being said, Work the rental cost of a skid in to the job price or the cost to sub out the skid work.
I take on jobs that i don't have the equipment for, depending on the job and equipment needs I rent or sub it out and that cost is passed on through the bid.
In my area you can get a skid with a good operator from $60-75 per hour with a 2 hour min.
