Technically you charged $100/hr so you made out ok. However for that type of work, you could have probably got $800-$1000 if not more depending on different factors.

$100 per hour is not bad but what equipment did you have on the site? If you were running a mini skid or small tractor you could have easily gotten $125-$140+ per hour. If you were running a skid loader or a larger tractor/ backhoe you could have gotten a lot more.

Did that include the rock? Hopefully that feller will get you some more work.

Why didn't you give him a price before you started doing the work?

i hope that price didn't include buying the rock...but for you going out there 2 separate days and only spending a few hours you would have been ok asking for around $750

guys around here are doing bobcat work, gradingand leveling for $50 - $75/hr! I charge $65/hr! with a 2 hr min but dang! I would have said yes you made out well on that job especially if you did not have to buy anyrocks or haul anything away!
