    Many variables. Best bet is to check some of the smaller family owned companies that sell equipment. There prices are usually better

    I second Viper. I called around to a few smaller, family owned rental companies and am getting equipment for half price over what I paid the Cat rental house last year.

    The owner said he was just happy to have equipment out during the winter. Not to mention, he has a couple brand new machines set aside for us. He said the plastic was still on the seats!

    I made that post at like 10PM!!!!! If you know A CAT sales rep that will answer their phone to chat about rental at that time i Will GLADLY accept their number From you!

    Well while it was on my mind i had a chance to call them and they said it would cost about 4k a month -30% if you guarantee for at least 4 months. Which can easily be done. Not too late he said even if they dont have one at the location that i want to pick it up at, they can have one by latest the next day. If its an emergency they can just give me a brand new one off the floor.

    10% for insurance unless i insure it myself which i would prob. do.
    what do you guys do?
