    Anyone have any idea what a rental place would charge monthly to rent a 8 or 10ft box for a skid?? I called around today and they have to wait for winter rate pricing to come out. I don't expect a actual number, just a ballpark. I'm thinking if it's more than 300month, i will just buy one.

    Thanks

    at that rate you are better off buying it. two years it will be paid off and if you buy a decent model, should last you a long time (minus the shoes and rubber of coarse).

    i know pro-tech doesn't. probably none of them, most likely you would have to go to an equipment rental place, but im not sure if they would even stock them.

    I got ahold of a local equipment rental place and they quoted me 200$ a month.

    if it were me, i would still rather make those payments towards a purchase of a pusher instead of renting one. JMO
