The dude fooled with it and said it was fixed...We get all the way back to the job with it only to have the hydro line in the backhoe burst. So, once again we bring it back..The funny thing is, the guy replaced the whole line with all new fittings.. Bring it back to the job the next day and what do ya know..That SAME hydro line busted again. We got our money back and rented a mini x from Coles rental

I hear you, Last time I rented from HD the throttle was broken and wouldn't hold idle on a tamper. Time before that was a chipper I was driving off a bridge ramp and the trailer felt as if it was tipping.......well it was, flat tire. I called them up and they said "shoot we thought we could hold off on fixing it" They just filled it up with air before I got there. Took 6 hours for them to come fix it. ( This was before I had multiple trucks so I couldn't do it myself)

Well, had my running with them people this morning. They charged my 301.77 which saw in my account this morning. The total after everything was said and done should have been 205.37, So, where the hell did this 90 sum dollars come from. Well, they are for the locks for the machine, the wheel and tongue lock. NA NA NA, I don't think so. When I heard that I hit the roof. Called up the manager again, since they did not return my call form yesteday to tell me that they were going to charge. So, I went higher up on the scale. Talk to a fellow in the customer service headquarters. Real friendly guy, told him the whole situation. He said he willl call me back and let me know the outcome of this whole problem. Also mentioned to him that the manager this morning was a reall smart azz saying "sorry, this is how we do things and this is how it will be done" Well, we will see about that. I know that this was my fault, but it is also theirs. THis is total BS.

Go to your bank and have the fraudulent charges taken off. Take your receipt with you as well.

I would do this. And didn't you say you paid $17 for renters insurance? That normally covers theft.

Na, I read the fine print in the contract twice. It only covers damage to the machine. Not insurance, I tried that one.

I would have thought that the insurance would cover damages, theft etc. This is a big warning about renting equipment from HD!
