20HP Towbehind Giant Vac Rental

Looking to rent out my 20HP Leaf Vac tow behind to some local guys. What does one think is fair for a daily rate. $150?

Maybe you should throw in a dump truck with a covered box on the back so they'd have somewhere to blow the leaves.

I say rent your whole set up with operator
You can ruin the blade and hoses real quick

Sounds like an invitation to have your equipment abused. Wouldn't do it.

Yeah I don't think that's too smart to do man. People tend to work those things pretty hard when they own them never mind when renting one. If you're looking to make some money with it rent it as a whole setup with operator.

I like the idea of renting everything with an operator. I think $450.00 to $650.00 sounds fair.

I agree or you could offer to vacuum up what is left at curbs for LCO's or homeowners for a fee. Tell them to give 24 hours notice and make a route.

I wouldn't rent it out without expecting for it to get destroyed. Your better off doing the work yourself and charging your regular rate
