    Can someone please give me a general price on what a 72" harley power rake runs new? Are they high maint.? What are you guys charging per hour to run your skidloader with a harley rake? It looks like a great tool to own. Thanks

    We paid $7200 for our M6 skid steer mount with hydraulic angle. You should be able to get it cheaper out east, we get screwed on anything we buy here in the west, it's always more expensive. They aren't high maintenance, on the side of ours it says how often to grease and lube everything. Greasing says every 100 hours, I know it sounds like alot but that's what it says for the castors and such. We charge $95 an hour for our Cat 216 with our Harley.

    $6500 here in Wisconsin. Hourly? you're on your own there, sorry. Not high maintenance at all. We grease ours every time it gets used.

    Randy,

    The purchase price is $6,500.00. Not the rental...

    I know. I meant he was on his own for what hourly rates to charge for providing the service.

    $6500 is about right, really not much maintenance unless you break something

    Here in KY we charge about $75 to $85 an hour. But about 60 miles north across the river in Southern Indian out of the city maybe 55 or 60. Just depends on location. People ask me what I charge, and when I tell them 75 an hour they think I'm crazy and tell me out in rural area the best they can get is 50 an hour for a full size backhoe.

    Thanks for the offer on the rake, that's a dang good deal, but shipping it up here would cost more than the savings in price. Are you a dealer or do you do alot of business with a dealer that gives you great pricing? I'm interested how you get them for cheap, unless the market really is that much less over there in the east.
