    good luck. Not a lot of places rent those anymore at least around me, maybe its different by you. The places by me though dont, except 1 and its like a 300$ per day rental for the attachment itself. And if you break a blade or bend it or whatever, you need to replace them. And there like $125-150/blade depending on type size etc.

    The mulchers use carbide teeth on a rotating drum not blades. Call your local bobcat dealer. They should be able to help you or set you in the right direction.

    well im sure those are even more expensive if you break one of those ive only rented one 1 time, and i just remember it taking a long time to find someone who rented something like that

    Check with kubota of west mi. They have a cutter to rent, along with a asv if you need it.If i remember right its around $325.00 a day for both. Ask for dennis. Grand equipment might have something also.
