I need an ESTIMATE price per hour on what to charge the guy, he wants everything hauled away, and in everyones opinion, will you all recommend me renting an excavator, bobcat, dozer??
So far im thinking $150/hr...hows that look to everyone?

60x250 is a pretty good size i did one that 40x120 for 3000 and that is cheap around here. also did it by hand, but i owned the chipper and dump truck, just had labor and a little bit of diesel and gas for my expenses. if you have two areas that size tell the guy 8500 and do it by hand so nothing gets compacted, chainsaws and a chipper. no compaction, no ruining trees a few years down the road, happy customer.
