14 years ago my wife and I started a drywall company and only used the T system. One day she was sick and I ended up doing it myself. Well after about 2 hours of this I ran down and rented a Drywall lift and since then there has never been a T in my yard LOL. Rental shops charge by the day/week/month. You will be surprised how economical it is to rent so I would check on prices first, they are a sweet machine and your backs will love you.
