The Harley Power Box Rake: Trending Attachment?

The Harley rake is one of the many attachments we carry for skid steer loaders and Toro Dingo compact utility loaders. The Toro Dingo rake has a 48-inch operating width and can angle up to 20 degrees in either direction, so it’s incredibly versatile and maneuverable.

Determining Your Fleet Needs

What does your fleet need and what can your approach be to build or grow it? If some of the practices you use for your personal wellbeing, like balance, flexibility, and discipline, have been successful, consider using those practices to guide your decisions on renting, leasing or buying equipment.

Balance, in rent vs. buy vs. lease decisions, refers to the need for balancing your financial obligations in comparison to your expected equipment utilization needs. A well-liked industry rule of thumb favors buying equipment when you expect to achieve a utilization factor of 60 percent or higher. But which of the three options is the most flexible? Whether to rent, lease or buy isn’t always clear. You should take a disciplined approach based on your needs for balance and flexibility. This Construction Business Owner article covers how to arrive at an approach that works for you.
