    Default Sled Rental

    Wife's company is looking to rent a smowmachine, possibly for the rest of the winter. (She needs one starting tomorrow, Friday the 27th)
    Anybody know of a place to rent besides Alaska Toy Rental?
    Thanks,
    BK

    I'm guessing that if they're going to be renting one for the rest of the season they'd be better off buying a machine.

    $250-300/day over say at least 60 day period is $15-18,000.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    They aleady own one, just need another and don't want to purchase.
    Long term rentals typically run $150/day or less, FYI.
    Sounds like they are talking to Big Lake Artic Cat to negotiate a rental.
    Thanks.

    What kind of sled are they looking for? I've got a friend who decided just yesterday to sell hers ('08 SkiDoo MXZ 600 ETEC) but she might be open to leasing for the winter.

    Thanks for the offer Eagle River Dee, but Denalihunter has a couple machines that will work out if they decide to go that route. I appreciate the input here.
