Does your family’s home sit on a good bit of land? If you want to do much with that land, you likely need some heavy equipment. Ideally, most property owners with a lot of undeveloped space have a tractor at their disposal, but most people don’t own their own excavator. When you have a bigger job than what your tractor can handle, you may have to rent an excavator.
Excavator rentals aren’t just for business owners. As you budget for your property improvements, you may find that the cost of an excavator rental and the sweat equity you can put into your property fit into your budget better than hiring an earthmoving company for the job.
The video here is a great introduction to excavator rentals. The host goes through a project where he clears some land with a rental excavator and shows how the excavator works. The project the host is handling should take about a month, and he spends around $7,000 on the excavator. In exchange, however, he is able to clear trees and rocks to gain some extra space to grow crops.
If you’re interested in excavator rentals, be sure to watch through the video and contact a heavy equipment rental company in your area.
