Help with large mulch job

We are bidding on a large mulch job (180-200 yds) and would like to rent a mulch blower. I am having a hard time finding one.

Where in RI can we rent one???
That's a HUGE mulch job. Would it be easier to sub it out to the $35/yd mulch blower guys and add in your mark up to the customer? If you add up rental fees, labor & materials, do you make a lot more (serious question) ?

We bid it as if it where blown in. If we get it, then we're in the market for a mulch blower lol. We have close to enough work to keep it busy plus we can rent it out to contractors because only one other guy in about a 100 mile radius has one.
