    I've rented a 3ph PHD twice now and I'm convinced I need to buy one. At $78 per day (including tax), I've now spent about a third the cost of a new one. As important, though is the cost of renting v.s. owning in time and convenience. It's 30 minutes each way from my house to the rental dealer. Add time to load/unload and pay the bill and I've spent 2 hours with the thing without drilling one hole. And you need to reserve these things ahead of time. So I reserve one for Saturday but come Saturday AM it looks like rain. If I pick it up and it rains and I don't get my holes drilled either I take it back by closing Saturday and lose my $78 - or pay another $78, use it Sunday and get it back to them as soon as they open on Monday morning.
    I'm in the market for a PHD - the hassle of renting one is way too much like my Monday-Friday job!

    That is exactly why I have so many different tools. Most times I can have the job done in less time than it takes to rent a tool. Also when you own the tool you can do your work whenever you find the time. Plus you know exactly what kind of shape your equipment is in.

    Okay, here comes one of my famous dumb questions.. and remember, my official title is <font color=red>"Veteran Question Asker."</font color=red> [img]/w3tcompact/icons/blush.gif[/img]

    Not being a farmer, I can't imagine what you guys are digging all these holes for!? If you put up a fence, don't you just do it once? Or maybe once every 10 years? Okay, you plant some trees.. but how often do you need to plant a tree? Don't you just plant it and then let it grow for years? Why is everybody talking about post hole diggers?

    I probably need one too, I just can't think of why! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I agree. Trust makes the world go round. Even so, good fences make for good neighbors.
