Excavator Rental Rates: Renting Heavy Machinery for the Job

When it comes to heavy equipment needs, homeowners and contractors require the right machine for the job. You may need to move loads of stones for landscaping or driveway use, excavate a trench to lay in pipework, clear out a construction site, or place in grading.

Owning the heavy machinery may not be in your construction budget if you are a contractor, miner or landscaper. In addition, you may work at various job sites where you only need an excavator or track loader for a short length of time. For residential property owners, buying such heavy equipment is not feasible for your means as you may only need the machine to perform one specific project for a few hours.

Renting heavy equipment from a reliable and trustworthy heavy equipment rental company offers the cost-effective solution that residential property owners, contractors, farmers, miners, landscapers and others need for specific work tasks. Here at Rent1, we offer a wide variety of heavy equipment, from mini excavators to skid steers, that will fit your project and your budget.

One common question we often hear at our company is, “how much does it cost to rent an excavator per hour?” The answer will depend on the type of excavator you need, the delivery costs, and a minimum per hour rate for the machinery and the operator. Check out our following guide to learn about our heavy machinery and operator rates.

Heavy Equipment Hourly Rental Costs

Our heavy equipment rental costs are based on a minimum per hour rate of 6 hours. We require a minimum per hour rental rate to cover the fuel, transportation, operator pay and delivery charges. In addition, most projects that require our heavy equipment usually last up to 6 hours or more, which is close to a full 8-hour work day. Hourly costs will vary based on the type of equipment that you are renting. We offer mini excavators, compact track loaders and skid steers on an hourly rate.

Mini Excavators

Mini excavators are perfect for those small and medium digging jobs, as well as large trenching work where site space may be restricted and cannot accommodate larger excavator machinery. Our mini excavator hourly rental rates include the operator, mini excavator, and a hydraulic thumb. There is a 50% delivery discount on our mini excavators.

  • John Deere 17D Mini-Excavator: $80 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours
  • John Deere 27D Mini-Excavator: $90 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours
  • John Deere 35D Mini-Excavator: $90 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours
  • John Deere 50D Mini-Excavator: $110 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours

Skid Steers

Skid steers are used to carry loose soil, stones, sand, snow, construction materials and debris anywhere at a commercial/industrial site or private property. You can also grade land, install fences, perform landscaping projects, as well as load dump trucks. The hourly rate for a skid steer includes the machinery, operator and fuel. There is a 50% delivery discount on our skid steer rentals.

  • John Deere 313D Skid Steer: $85 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours

Compact Track Loader

A compact track loader can perform all the same work as a skid steer. Yet these machines have high flotation rubber tracks instead of wheels. A compact track loader is ideal for projects on worksites with poor ground conditions or on sensitive surfaces such as sidewalks and driveways. So you can move materials and debris or use the machine to grade land. Just like our skid steer rentals, there is a 50% delivery discount on our compact track loaders.

  • John Deere 319D Compact Track Loader: $95 per hour for a minimum of 6 hours
