Looking to maybe hire a Cherry picker or simliar for a few hours, but not
having much luck finding DECENT rates .. over $200 for a "cherry picker"
from Kennards for only 4 hours!

A "Man Lift" (Up/Down only), cna be hard for $98 for 4 hours, and is a BIT
better .. would like to find something simliar .. only really need up/down
life, for about 4 hours .. perferably for a bit less then $98 .. Anyone got
any suggestions? If something with some form of rotation/swing could be had
for a simliar price, that would be preferable .. and yes, I do have a
license for this class of vehicle, (via work), just never had to actually
hire one before ..

Thanks in advance!

That is reasonable rates when you consider they have to service, maintian
and insure the things. The cost is done on a day rate with 4 hours usually
on being a few percent cheaper. The only better offer you will get is if you
know someone, or find someone up the road with one and give them some cash.

A ladder?

Seriously, 98 bucks for half a day doesn't sound all that bad for such a
machine.

is that the trailer version?  a full size truck cherry picker costs near
that price.

If you're cheap try a ladder or scaffold. expect there to be more labour
involved. you may be able to hire sufficient scaffold (possibly with wheels
on) for about half that price. scaffold wheels have solid tyres and are only
suited to paved areas or indoors.
