What's going on, everyone got their kids today? I'm doing my billing while my 4 and 6 year old are playing in their bedrooms!

Hey KrayzKajun I've found a small rental bobcat 463 for about $200 a day, I'll only need it for 1 day anyway. I also can get a load of dirt for about $180 (spillway dirt 8-12 yards same price). How much would you charge to spread the dirt? The guy changed his mind about the St. Aug grass.

So now it's just spreading 8-12 yard of dirt.

I would rather have a tracked walkbehind skid before using of them lil wheeled machines. The rental price should be close to the same. You should be able to knock tht out in a few hours. Price wise depends on what you want to make. How far do you have to transport the material? Have you used a skid before, does he want it graded out?

Yes I have use one before. No he doesn't want it graded out. So I guess the little wheel will tear the ground up more? What place you think is best to get one for the price? I'm only going from the front of the house to the side.

being the crap ass weather we have been having, i would go for tracks. i rent from Sunbelt and RSC Rentals. if you rent on a friday afternoon, you can keep the machine until monday and it will only cost a one day rental as long as you dont put more than 8hrs on it.

Okay I didn't know that. That's good information. I think I'll do just that.
