    All - reaching out to the locals to see if someone can help me out and we can figure out appropriate compensation. :)

    I need to rent a skid-steer on Saturday for some heavy yard work. I don't have a vehicle that can tow it. All-in, about 9,000 lbs with trailer - more than a simple ball hitch can handle (and more than my V6 should @ 175,000 miles). I have the rental place... just not the truck to haul it with. Trailer is included with the rental, so we don't need that - just something to two it to/from.

    Pickup would be at 8AM near Pond Springs/McNeill/183, return would be at 2PM. I live near Parmer/Mopac, so about 10 miles each way. All you have to do is hook up, drive, disconnect (we'll park the trailer in the street in front of the house), then do the same thing in reverse later that afternoon.

    If you're interested, let me know what you'd want in return. Cash, beer, food, ammo... help with something on your side later (perhaps picking up/hiding Christmas gifts in my garage, etc.)?

    PM me if interested or reply in-thread.

    Rental places usually deliver too but may be more than you are wanting to spend.

    I won't be back in town by then or maybe I could help.

    Good luck.

    I can rent a truckload of mexicans with shovels for cheaper than skid steer + delivery 2 ways. :)

    You not taking into account liability for getting to and from. Things happen. That $150 for both could be a bargain.

    Rental place may require a 3/4 ton for towing that load also.

    This, plus usually a rental company will get it the next day, in your case Monday. You probably only get 8 hours on a one day rental but then you can spread it out and use it all up.
