View Full Version : Cost per hour
Guys lets see what some of your cost per Hour to run a machine. This covers fuel, oil, filters, repairs, operator.
If you run it yourself pay yourself.
Skidloader without power attach=$50/hr
Skidloader with Brillion=$60//hr
Skidloader with power attach=$65/hour
Tractor with or without attach=$50/hour
Thinking about an increase due to fuel prices, everybody else is adding a fuel surcharge to my orders.

i think my actuall cost per hour is about 35 to 40 per hour
i figure 20.00 per hour for cost of running machine and 15.00 per for operator
We charge $50/hour for a compact with attachments, plus we add a trucking charge which is based on the distance of travel. We figure that this breaks down to $25 for the machine and $25 for the operator. If we rent a machine we charge accordingly based on rental cost, trucking and operating. I think any price for a machine is pretty cheap based on the amount of work that is completed in an hour as compared to doing it by hand.
Just updated from our office,
operator $ 28.45 Per. Hr.
machine $ 16.83 Per. Hr.
operator $ 28.45
Machine $ 12.34
Machine $ 25.36
This is just the costs, fuel, oil, filter, payments.
Matt thats what you charge not your costs!
