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.

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.
