Another option is to just hire a local mechanic
who has a cutlass bearing puller.
I can't speak for everyone, but we charge $250 labour for a standard prop or $350 for a folding or feathering prop.
If the customer removes the prop, $200.
How much is it going to cost you per day on the hard in yard fees
, wasting time trying to find a cutlass bearing puller to rent?
Folks have asked to rent mine in the past.
The answer was sure, either way it's $100 / hr.
But if you hire me, I come along with the tool, do all the work, and warrant the job.
If you rent the tool from me, the hourly rate is the same, but it will likely take you longer because you haven't done it a hunnert times before.
Additionally, if you hire me with it, and the tool gets damaged, I pay for it.
If you rent the tool from me, and it gets damaged, you buy me a new one out of your deposit.
Sometimes, when it doesn't make sense to buy the tool, it makes sense to hire the guy who owns one an knows how to use it.
