How to get the best mechanical bull in town
The first question you should ask is, how much is a mechanical bull worth?
For some people, that answer is $3,000.
For others, that is far less, depending on the breed and location.
But for many buyers, a mechanical stool is an essential part of their mechanical bull experience.
Mechanical bull rental companies, such as M.C. Bull, are willing to sell you a mechanical and even a bull with a mechanical, but they will charge a much higher price.
Here is a look at some of the best and worst mechanical bull rentals in the country.
Mechanical Bull Rental FAQ What is a Mechanical Bull?
A mechanical bull is a breed of bull that has had the bull’s whiskers shaved off, its ears shaved off and its horns replaced with steel ones.
There are about 3,000 mechanical bulls in the U.S., according to the American Bull Association.
Why is a bull’s horn required?
Because when a bull is riding, its whiskers will often get caught in its mouth and cannot be easily removed.
The steel whiskers can be removed and the horns can be installed, but not the whiskers.
When a bull has to be euthanized because of a horn injury, the horns will be installed in a similar manner to how they are in most breeds.
Does it cost me more to rent a mechanical than a bull?
Most mechanical bull rent companies, however, don’t want to say.
They say it depends on the type of bull and the location.
For example, a bull that is on a farm or ranch and has had its whisker blades removed might be cheaper to rent than a mechanical.
However, if you have a bull on a private property and have not been able to remove its whiskering, you will probably have to pay more.
Also, if your bull is on public property and you have not had it removed, you may have to spend more money.
Mechanical bulls are also often the cheapest breed of bulls, with a minimum purchase price of $1,200, but a lot more are available.
What do I need to know before I rent a Mechanical bull?
It is important to know that you can not buy a mechanical at a mechanical-rental company.

You can also rent a bull online at a Mechanical-Rentals.com website.
Do I have to do a thorough search?

Do they make any warranties?

You are not responsible for mechanical bull damage.
How do I find a mechanical?
The first thing you need to do is call the rental company and tell them about your requirements and you will then be directed to a rental area.

You may need to get a picture of the animal and tell the rental-agent to tell you if the animal has a whisker or horn.

After the inspection, you can bring the animal back to the rental area and see it again.
Will the mechanical bull come with a leash?

Can I have a mechanical that is missing a whiskers or horns?
