    I'm looking to rent a skid steer from a friend for the season and just wanted to do a check of how much I should pay him to keep it fair. Paying per hour on the hourmeter.

    How good a friend is it? Always tough to mix business and pleasure. You might just consider subbing to him and making both of you happy. In regards to a fair number, that is pretty tough to determine. I am sure you know what it would cost to rent one for the winter from the dealer? Not cheap. Who fixes your friends machine if it breaks?

    A dealer will rent you a 2 speed S250 for $800-$900 a month for 5 months. You will get a total of 200 hrs. Then you pay $10 a hour after that. Hope this helps.
