looks good! Could you have saved time with a skid steer front loader? Less scoops... Also if you don't mind, what was the profit after the rentals...

Looks ok but this job could easily be done in a matter of hours with two guys It seems like. skidsteer remove dirt, prep area with topsoil , and lay sod ... maby 8 hours with two men...

the reason i didnt use a skid steer is because the area is smaller then it looks i have a new holland 190 and its to large, also there was two guys haha me and the driver of the 1 ton "my dad" the job was about 30 minutes from my house and we moved it one dump truck load at a time but it wasnt bad one day to move the dirt and prep and a little more then half a day to lay the sawd it was about 900 sqft of space total i layed the sawd all alone so that took me a while billed the job out at $3500 cost $550 for the sawd, $270 for the rental and $100 for fuel

Sounds like you made money on that one. Just one question, how many loads did you have to haul out and how much were dump fees?

no dump fees i live on 7 acres and it all gets dumped in seperate piles in my back yard i seperated it per truck as i loaded it i think it was around 8-9 loads of fill all together profit was less then i wanted so far this year i spent 7K on mini rentals and im not happy about it but my other machine is to tied up to trade in on a mini so ill have to wait till next year to buy one
