    Insurance

    I'm trying to put together a grant proposal to fund the rental of a DW 650. The delivery and pickup will be done by the rental agency, I'm assuming their insurance will cover any potential damage during transportation.

    Is there any kind of coverage I can get for damage to the machine while I'm using it? If so, what do I ask for? Any preferred providers?

    Walt,

    Who are you renting from? Any reputable rental agency should have a rental policy available to cover damage done while using it.

    How long will you have it? I assume it's for Blue Mounds. ??

    Hi Dewayne,

    I'm shooting for a 2-week rental from Ditch Witch Midwest. Last time I did this they didn't offer insurance. Or at least that was my understanding at the time.

    I'm trying to speed things up a bit at Blue Mound. You can see the details on the CORP forum if you're interested, but the quick summary is there are several re-work projects I'd like to tackle while maintaining progress on the Pokerville loop.

    If you have time/interest shoot me a PM with a proposal for training on the SK 650. If possible I'd like to budget for it as part of my grant proposal. I don't know many details yet, but I understand you worked with the folks at LaCrosse. I've worked out a lot on my own, but I'm going to be working in more difficult terrain this time around.

    Walt, the staff at the rental desk @ DW Midwest know me, by the way. Don't know if this will help you get a better rate or not. If they don't offer insurance, maybe the club's insurance carrier can attach a rider for rental property. ???

    The place we rent from charges a flat 10% damage fee for all rentals. This covers pretty much anything that could happen to a machine, from operator error, wrong fuel type, vandalism, having it crushed under a fallen tree, etc.

    Are there other places to rent from that offer insurance? Lots of places around here rent DW equipment.

    Update:

    Ditch Witch Midwest doesn't offer damage coverage. Looking into alternatives.
