You have to decide what makes sense for your company, none of us can do that for you. For a lot of excavating companies renting is way cheaper and it's cheaper for landscapers that don't use them more than 4 or 5 days a month. I have one crew that does nothing but hardscaping and my mini is used almost daily, some days I use it for 10 minutes and other days I use it for 10 hours. For me owning a new machine machine is cheaper.
