Pretty elaborate pad, where did you put the dig? truck it away? do they give you a grade checker or do you have to check your own grade. Nice looking job!

Ohh and we haul it on a 2 axle tag also not a three. Its alittle close to the limit but scales out fine, Do you guys own your own lowboy or hire out.

Your Cat should be legal on a tandem axle tag it is common around here to move 16 ton hoes on a tandem tag. A lowbed is too expensive the customer isn't going to pay the 450-500 dollar move. A tag is quick and easy to hitch up load the machine on chain it down and off to the next job.

Im amazed you can make money like this hoeman. I agree, it should be like this everywhere, but its not. The concrete biz in my area is so tight right now that no money can even be made. I loose jobs all the time, its to the point im tired of bidding them. Just last week I lost a shed floor (980 sq. ft) that I was going to make $800 profit on tops, and spend 2 days preping and pouring it. My area just plain sucks compared to yours!

The stone here would be 1500 dollars. The culvert and ends 400 dollars. The dirt at least 700.
What do other people pay for materials?

Gravel Rat
04-17-2010, 01:42 PM
I don't think that price is too bad the same job here it would be 1000 dollars for the gravel another 900 dollars in trucking the culvert pipe around 350 dollars. A 8 hour day to do the job with the skid steer 750-800. It would be a 3000 dollar job.

Here in my area the limestone would be about $1200, the dirt about $750, and the culvert about $300. So materials only about $2250 total.

The stone was 9.50 a ton

Heres a break down of what it cost me

Crushed LimeStone $554
10" culvert 20ft $240
Flaired ends for the culvert $175
Permit $150
$150 in fuel
So thats about 1300 right there

So for my skid and truck time for 6 hours I made about 2600

Yes I know its good money but I put most of my money back into the business.

The truck here will go for about 600-800 dollars a day. You get the stone much cheaper than I do. Here it goes for 20.00 a ton. We have mostly crushed granite.

I would have made around 1200 dollars but I do not have the overhead you do by owning my own dumptruck.

Haha no he did a good job just took forever but I think he mostly does side walks and stuff. I just know guys who have done 8000sqft houses in a week and hes took two weeks for this and we havent had rain in like almost a month so that excuse doesnt work for him.

A small foundation job like that would only take a contractor 2 days at the most. A day to do the footings or next day form and pour or they can do footings and walls at the same time.

There are foundations that do take a month to do because of the complexity they also take 30 yards of concrete for the walls.

30 yards of concrete? Are you kidding me? And taking a month to form up and pour a foundation? GR, I have poured over 100 basments, and let me tell you, no matter how complex, we always had the forms set in less than 1/2 of a day, that is with a 6 man crew. We poured several basments in 3 days, (dig, pour footings the first, set and pour walls the second, strip forms and pour the floor the third). This is a basment and garage at the same time. Basic foundations are alot quicker than that too. And just so you know, the average house uses arround 30 yards for the footing, 65 yards for the walls, and 25 yards for the floors.

30 yards of concrete? Are you kidding me? And taking a month to form up and pour a foundation?

Our footings are 36" wide, 8" thick, walls are minimum 6", some are 12" for brick work and code requires 4" thick skim coat for basements or crawl space, we use lots of concrete here.
Wall heights vary, but I have pictures of a foundation that was 26 feet high, 18" thick after it was finished.

These are not square boxes your forming the walls to the contour of a bald rock some houses sit on posts because there is a huge elevation change. You can't use ordinary form panels some jobs you have to use shiplap to follow the countours. The most expensive foundation job cost the homeowner close to 30,000 dollars.

The builders also don't use 6 man crews at most it is 4 guys mostly 3 guys. You have to take a rock drill and drill the rock and use 3/4 inch rebar to pin the footings to the rock. Then you build 4 to 5 foot walls very rare you have full basements to no basement. You have to pump every foundation no way you can get a mixer truck or wheelbarrow them. Some jobs requires a boom pump to pump to a line pump then it pumps the crete into the forms.

It takes 2-3 days to dig a foundation depending on the site if it has been cleared then it would take 2 days. If your logging off trees then plan on 5 days worth of digging. You scrape the over burden off to expose the rock if blasting is required then you have 1000-10,000 dollars worth of blasting.

The average cost to build a house to lock up stage is 100-150 dollars a square foot. The average 2000 square foot house complete is 250-300,000.

The ready mix trucks haul 10 yards of concrete at 1600 dollars per truck.

I was told I was insane for putting a 36" bucket on a 580. And I put a 1.5 yard on a 130 size ZTS. But I always got the job done.:laugh:

It's not all about width, it's about capacity. The 312 my dad bought back in '06 had a 315 sized coupler and we ended up with a 315 size 60" cleanup bucket for it, along with a hydraulic wedgelock coupler and hydraulic link thumb. Now that was a gnarly combo for a 312, she handled it but loading trucks took a little extra care.

Look how high the b box is everyone of the houses in the neigbor hood was like that. I guess the guys putting them In must have not been able to read a blue print. and the town wont let you raise the dirt up to it. And they wont fix it either. It has to come outta your own pocket.

Oh that must be such a load for the dump truck... hahaha lol not

Yeah man I live like 15 minutes from antioch and blanarys If you ever coming up this way let me know well go out on the island and get tuned up.

Yeah digging it was a mother fer. I bent those poles over just so I could swing. I hate to admit that I had run the bottom of the counter weight against that chain link fence But I had to get this job done and really didnt have a choice. Lucky enough its already scratch abit. But i absoluty hate doing that. Ohh well nothing got broken and everyone is happy

Haha glad someone noticed that. They expect us to rip the garage out after they build the hous and room additon. The home owner needed it for storage space. I told them to go rent a pod. Theres no room on either side of the house to get our skid loader down the side of the house or a mini for that matter. So I hope they have a helecopter to fly the machine in there.

They probly just get like ten mexicans to tear it out by hand.
