Blue Springs rental on 40 hwy told me they had them. I haven't actually gotten one, but called and they said they had them available.

Rate was $11 per hour w/ 2 hour min or $60 per day, I believe.

Are you interested in work in Raymore area?

I am getting a few calls out of the Lee's Summit paper from out there, and I really don't want to go out that way.

Let me know, if you are, I will pass on your name to any people from that direction that call me.

Man -- I did your work for you!

Man -- I did all of your work for you. I needed one the other day and I called every place in town. United rental is the only place that has them -- both the one in Olathe and the one in Martin City. $22/hr - 2hr min.

It is the trench master -- I love that machine -- it works like a pro!

Thanks for the info. Jeff. Is the trench master good for using when installing plastic edging?

In my opinion nothing is good for putting down plastic edging -- I hate that stuff. But -- I suppose it would work. I have used it before when putting down steel edging -- but am not sure how much time it actually saves. Usually pretty easy to dig in with just a good sharp spade.

I am in the LS area, if you guys have some work over here that you don't want to do, float them my way and we can see what we can work out.

What dealers do you guys mostly work with in the area?

Trailer Advice

I posted this in the genral trialer forum also -- but figured you guys would have a better feel on the local prices anyway.

I'm looking to buy a new trailer. I found a used one today and went and looked at it.

It is a 16' x 7' tandem axle trailer with 1/2 ton axles and electric brakes on one axle. It has 4' expanded metal sides.

He is asking $1000. Does this sound like a good price?

It is three years old. Tires have about 75% tread.

The only thing that worries me a little bit is the 1/2 ton axles. Wondering if this is enough for my general landscaping. I had 3,500 lb axles on my other trailer.

I suppose the most weight I probably ever put in it is 5 yards of mulch. I figure mulch weighs in at about 1000lbs /yd. So I wouldn't be able to carry that much mulch anymore.

Look forward to hearing your opinions.
