Big Lakes County has various pieces of equipment available for rent to assist ratepayers in their farming operations. The goal of this program is to provide reasonably priced options for hard to source or cost prohibitive equipment. Through Council Motion the Rental Program will no longer have any funding for equipment, and will suspend the rental equipment Program in three years time, effective December 31, 2024.

 

Please note: renters must give the county at least 24 hour notice in order to ensure that the equipment is properly sanitized. If the equipment is not properly cleaned before returning to the county, a $75.00 cleaning fee will be applied.

 

The fleet is detailed below.
