I recently upgraded to a big rig but I am not quite ready to depart with my beloved Archer 2. Its really perfect for about half of my clientele, but I can't afford to have it sitting around. This is an exploratory thread to gauge interest in the NY metro area for it as a rental rig. I think of it as a crossover vehicle. Its perfect if you have a flyer and get a job that with a heavier camera setup or if you have a big rig and get a job where you need to be light and mobile. I love it for documentary/live work, especially since the whole kit, vest, sled, and arm, packs up into a single case. I also have an adapter post for 5/8" so it can be used with a pro arm (a setup I was extremely happy with). I am also open to young operators who have taken a workshop and don't have a rig yet but I'd have to meet you and see you fly the rig and of course it wouldn't go out without insurance. For rates please email me at michaelhauer@gmail.com or call 917 696. If you think you would be a candidate to rent the rig but don't have an immediate need for it please get in touch as well. I want to see if this is a viable option for me, otherwise I am going to sell it.

Thanks for your time!

Hey Michael, if you were going to sell your what would your starting price be? Just curious. Also It was great working with you on that shoot in Jersey last month.
