The short answer is the standard monthly rate. However...
Like most things, it’s not that easy or simple! There are other factors to consider that will impact the “total cost of rental.” These include:
... among others.
Most compressors are equipped with quick connections making hose connections fast. Be sure to ask your supplier when their hose was last pressure tested. This is an important safety consideration.
Is the control panel intuitive to use? Who will train the operator?
For example, know that a diesel compressor running 24/7 will need service every 10 days – more comprehensive service.
Ask how breakdowns are managed.
A Tier 4 interim engine in a compressor will have 12% lower fuel consumption than an older Tier 3 powered compressor. A quick payback calculation will determine when Tier 4’s save the customer money. Tier 4 Final compressors achieve another 5% fuel savings over Tier 4 interim.
So is it not worth checking that you can be supplied with a usint equipped with the most efficient engine available on the market?
Spending many additional labor hours moving, setting up, training, contacting the supplier for service or breakdowns can quickly add up – wasting any money saved on renting the cheapest compressor.
Make sure you don’t waste labor hours or fuel cost if you rent the cheapest compressor available.
Ask lots of questions to determine the true total cost of your rental.
