anyone have any production hrs for removing aprox 200 sq. concrete sidewalk? Have a buddy who wants a concrete sidewalk removed and another one poured. Don't deal with concrete very much, but i have poured and finished concrete before for township where price doesn't matter. I don't want to underbid myself or over charge him. walk is about 40 x 5 concrete is going to run 435.00. I know all about overhead recovery so please don't preach that. once again looking for production hrs.

walks already trashed and broke up. will be using a skid steer to tear out and load. i'm thinking around 1-2 hrs with 3 guys

I would say about 4 total man hrs for tear out, load and clean-up and another hr for disposal.

a 200 sq ft walkway removed with a skidsteer and pallet forks should take you no more then 30 minutes, and even thats a lot.

Right on the money... no more than 20minutes actually. $150 (removal)
Cake job. Pour should be easy as well (2.5yds) Two men should be able to remove and replace this walk in half a day.

We had a job years ago where a sidwalk was poured directly next to a large garge. The customer wanted it removed to put a flower bed in with a paver walk about 5 feet away from house. So we went out with the skidloader and the pallet forks and this sidewalk would not budge. So we determined that the sidewalk and garge were poured on one slab. So we went and got the gas cutoff saw with diamond blade. Its a 14 inch saw so it probally cuts about 5 inches deep. well when we cut it wee didnt get all the way through. No problem though. It should break of when we lift it with ther skidloader. Well we tried and it would not move. So he really got into it and when he did that the whole side of the garge, a brick wall with a large widow in it moved like 2 or 3 inches. I thought it was going to break. But it didnt. But on the inside it cracked the dry wall. So we went and rented a big walk behind saw. It had a 8 inch cutting depth. We cut it and same thing it would not budge. By this time we manage to break a small piece of the walkway of at the one end of the garge. Right next to the garge wall It was 13.5 inches thick with 3/4 inch rebar every 6 inches and wire mesh under that. So we had to go get a huge saw to cut this. This job took 3 guys almost 2 days to do. Lost alot on that job.

Here's what we used to get through concrete and rebar to repair an irrigation main line under it all.
