Hiring out a chipper

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just wondering what people think i should hire out a TP230 for. (9inch pto chipper)

Just the chipper ,not the tractor, day rate.

 

I thought £100/day, but this might seem a bit high.

Any thoughts?

Why do you want to hire it out? It can often cause more problems than £100 is worth. I speak from experience as I used to hire my tracked machine out, came back with damage most times yet the lads I hired it to always denied any knowledge of damage. I wouldn't bother to be honest mate.

It really does depend who you are hiring to. I'd be lost (lost may be a bit strong) without the give and take from lads I work with/for. We work on a you bend it you mend it agreement.

Its to be hired out to my agri contractor- i also sub for him, so i know the guys that will be using it and am happy for them to use it. I also borrow his stuff, and like to think should a break happen we could sort it out between us.

You'll simply spend the rest of your life pulling wire out of the gap between the flywheel and bearings replacing mangled blades and bending various bits of it back into shape. Many people seem to take the attitude that once they have paid the hire its theirs to abuse and yours to repair

I hire my chipper out with an operator, I don't think I would ever hire it alone + if your thinking of sending it out then I would look in to the insurance side of things and a deposit, I know this sounds abit anal but trust me there is a lot of scum bags out there.
