What would be the going rate for a rental of a case 580 super L. Does 15.00 an hour sound reasonable? What do you guys pay per hour who use them?

Wait i dont understand what your asking. do you have a machine and want to know if $15 bucks is a enough to charge someone? Or so you want to rent your machine out to other companys? Here is about $1000 for a month to rent a backhoe in the winter to load salt. One guy we know does that and they have some kind of wire or something welded on the hoe where the back bucket is so you cant use it or else it would cost more.

$15 an hour?...no way...even if it is an older machine we charge $110 an hour w/operator

I think he wants to rent one, not really sure. $225 for an 8 hour day is about what they go for around here. I've seen up to $265 per day, but things are pretty expensive out here.

Our deere dealer is $310 a day, or $2800 a month for a 310SG, which is the same size as a 580. Other rental place is $325 a day for a cat hoe, but not sure on the model #.

I'm not looking to rent out to someone. I know someone who is renting one out to people. Its a newer backhoe. I just think its way too cheap. This is without an operator.

@ $15.00 an hour that is a great rate. There would be no reason to own one, if someone was willing to rent it so cheap.

We are seeing some of that non-sense.....last couple years its been too easy to get into iron, anyone with a pulse qualified, and now that things are tightening up, those late comers are trying to get anything they can before the machine goes back to the bank/dealer. At $15 an hour you are going backwards in a hurry.........just plain foolish and lack of knowledge and business sense.

You can't even rent a rubber tired backhoe at most rental places that deal with homeowners. I wouldn't be renting a backhoe for 15 dollars per hour especially when its so easy to distroy the machine.

I completely agree with you guys. What would be the normal going rate?

A backhoe should never be bare rented it would be with a operator only unless the person renting the backhoe is a operator.

All it takes is some idiot running the machine to slash a tire on a rock there goes the rental profit.

I rent a 4x4 310 from hertz all the time for 450 a week they all have less than 1000 hours. I don't understand why the rent on the same size excavator is double? I think I was quoted like 900 a week for a tb175.

Well, the renter would be responsible for any damage to the machine while in his possession.

You can only charge stuff to a customer who you can prove did the damage. Dents, dings, that stuff may go unnoticed upon return and even then, who's to say what the price for that little dent in sheetmetal is actually worth? Pin and bushing wear you absolutely cannot pin on anyone, yet all rental machines that I've ever seen end up having a lifespan of less than half of what they would if they were to see proper use and good maintenance.
