    $90/Day or $360/Week from a longtime equipment rental place in town. The Caterpillar rental place wanted $440/week for the IR 185 in the same town.

    Does $360 for the week seem comparable to pricing in your area?

    Sounds comparable. Make sure you have enough hose.

    I normaly find that weekly is 3 times daily, not 4. $90 a day for a compressor sounds fair. I can sometimes "request" a smaller machine and get a price closer to $60, and then when I show up, they sub in the bigger unit because they let the smaller machine out. Sometimes I space out the early winterizations until that happens and then keep it two days or a week and do my commercial stuff. :)

    An alternative is to find a contractor that doesnt use his compressor often , like an asphalt guy , or concrete company and offer to rent his . I rent mine during the summer for 50 bucks a day .
