Help me bid this job!

HI, I am new to the business and am bidding a job for this spring to tear out this bush. I don't have much experience with this so I need to know how much I should charge and how you would get it out. I have a bobcat 853 that I could use but I just want to know how you guys would do it. It is the bush in the center of the picture not the evergreens.

SuperDuty335 hit the nail on the head and it also depends how far you have to go to get to the jobsite. A job 10 mins from the shop is going to be cheaper than a job thats 45 min to an hour away. Plus i charge a load up fee or a min charge to even load my trailer up.

125.00 then its 50/hr with a minimun of one hour. When diesel was 4.25 a gal i could get away with this price but now that is 2.20 a gal here i would do 30/hour

You chainsaw downl yank out, literally no more than 12 minutes. 200 is to much if it was an existing customer of mine I might charge 50 bucks. I would be thoroughly disappointed to see a Bobcat on the job sheesh! If I had to go and solely do the job then 125 would cover me.
