There have been some good posts about owning vs. renting a compressor before...

I think I'll always own at least one and maybe rent the extras... last year I winterized for about two months but it was before slow at the beginning and end where it wouldn't have paid to rent to do a few a day. I also did one in January when a plumber accidently turned the sprinklers on again.

Agreed. We have an old nearly worn out 185 that the LS construction uses. We use it as a backup and for the last tail-enders that suddenly realize that it is nearly Christmas and they might need their system shut down.

I might purchase my third this week and since they are all set up for winterizations I was wondering what would be a fair charge for rental? $100 day/ $500 week / $1750 month???

Between $750 to $1200 a month depending on how far we want to drive to pick it up.

ICS... who would you be renting them to? also... I am pretty close to getting a rough copy of my new forms.

Anyone have any pics of their setup? I have some on the other computer that I'll post later. I want to letter the compressor this year... anyone put anything clever on theirs?

To other irrigators I know and some small LCO's that winterize less then 50. Let me know when your forms are done. I want to redo mine but I want them to look simple and uncluttered, last years looked too cluttered.

This is my blowout sheet. It is a three part carbon copy. Top stays at office middle goes in completed file and bottom I leave on the door. I have them cut the 2nd and 3rd pages so their cc# does't show on technician or customer copy.

Changed our minds... going to buy this year instead of renting. Our construction side will use it part of the year and I will have it when one of our clients calls after we are done with the rental and wanting a blow-out.
