Cost:  Should You Buy or Rent?

The Pros and Cons of Renting and Buying a Tiller

If you are considering renting a tiller, you will need to transport it from one location to another; once to bring it home, and the second time to return it. If you do not own a truck, you will need to borrow or rent one. If you choose to rent a truck, it will increase the overall cost. Loading and unloading may also be a factor you’d want to consider.

But that’s not all.

You might encounter some issues with renting a tiller, as most of them are used. Additionally, you may not have the option to rent the latest model and if you do, it may cost you more to rent. If you rent a tiller while the sun is shining, but it begins to rain suddenly, you will not receive a “rain check” or refund.  You’ll need to purchase another day’s rent. If you own a tiller, you will not be at the mercy of the weather and paying per day rent.

In most cases, the best option is to buy a tiller. This enables you to have choices when it comes to your tiller.  Work whenever you want without worrying about rain, no loading and unloading time, and rushing to finish the job so you can return it.
