We are bidding a large industrial project,which we installed by the way, and the mainteneance agreement must be bid as Time & materials. I need to basically figure what it costs to operate a 30 hp tractor & mower by the hour,,,, fuel,maintenance,breakage factor,,etc.
The man hours are not set as we will get paid however long we are on site. How do you all bid out your man hours? Their wage doubled? etc.

I've always just bid xxx amount per month ,buit I can see how this would be "safer" for each party involved.
Thanks
