    Curiosity has gotten the better of me. What can you expect to pay for a 3-ton grip truck for a day or a week?

    I'm in the midwest, so prices may be different where you are...
    First, there is the insurance, and again this differs from one rental house to another..The truck itself requires insurance and the contents require EQUIPMENT RENTAL INSURANCE. So you need, in place, aprox $ 100,000 dollars worth of rental equipment insurance, plus the truck.
    Some places have just a flat fee and insurance waivers, not unlike HERTZ, or AVIS.
    3 ton package-usually tungsten-unless you swap those out for Daylight- or it comes all tungsten, and you simply add HMI's(ala cart)
    Can go from $ 300.00 day to $ 800.00 a day. You usually can get them to give you the truck for a week(and depending on where you live) for either a 3 day or 4 day rental..So basically, a whole week for 3 or 4 days.
    Many people rent a truck on a Friday, and can get the whole weekend for one days rate.

    I already own the Chimera 20" and 30" lanterns and think they're way cool. How would you compare it to a medium pancake and why'd you go with the pancake?

    So what's the usefullness of a right angle baby plate? I guess you could nail it into a wall, but I'm never in a situation where I can sink nails into a wall.

    I just bought a pancake and love it. I like the pancake a little more because of the shallow depth. Often I have to rig above tables with lower ceilings and you need every inch you can get.

    I fill echo what BCHEONG says, and add that I chose it because of the additional control of the skirt and I can tighten it up closer to a ceiling than with a lantern.. I ordered a medium because size matters..lol, and the small just wasn't giving me the spread of light I wanted...Hope that helps...Sorry I did not respond sooner.
