    I originally posted this in the Sweeper forum but got no reply's. Figured I would try it here.

    Im going to rent a 96" Laymor power broom and wanted to get some opinions on this piece of equipment before i get it.

    Also a follow up question. I know there are many variables to consider with this but what do you think for: Laymor sweeper 96" and a bobcat to clean up pile getting $125 per hour? Would be 2 laborers and a 1 ton dump hauling away sand. Considering variables: location, overhead, gas etc.. Whats your opinion on this rate?

    Rentals for sweeper & Bobcat break down to $270.00 per day.

    We would be dumping at our own facility. We have a small pit that people haul from. It would get mixed in with bank run gravel. There is a small dumping fee. But because we will be getting paid when people haul away from our pit the fee is minimal.

    Figured I'd bump it for you :rolleyes: !!! I usually get $65 per hour for a Bobcat/operator. Is the sweeper a walk behind?? If so I would get probably like $45 per hour. 1 ton dump for $45 per hour. Like you said with out knowing all the variables??? but thats my rough guess.
