Add your variable costs, such as fuel, labor, etc., to this and you'll have a good estimation of what it costs you per hour to operate. You'll need to make some assumptions, but it'll be fairly accurate. Email me at rdj1@iland.net and I'll send you the Excel template. If you don't have Excel, I can copy it to Word and email back to you - but you'll have to calculate by hand.
Hey Randy can I get a copy of that excell formula emailed to me derekknight1@hotmail.com I am to looking for a pricing go by.

Thanks Ryan. If anyone has any questions on it, please let me know @ rdj1@iland.net. Some fields have calculations so be sure to look before typing. And you'll need to come up with the number of weeks you expect to work per year, fuel economy of your equipment, etc. Should give you a pretty good idea of what your costs are per hour though, so now everyone can be sure they aren't losing money out there sweating their butt off!
