If you rent a 6 c.y bucket loader, that's 500 trips roughly.

With the cost of fuel, better add an additioanl percentage to cover the fuel cost.
I don't know how to help you price this, but I think I read Dirtman2007 charged $20 a cubic yard or something along that line on a pond job he did once.

When you say sludge what's the water content...the reason I ask if it is more liquid then solid that 6 yd bucket will probably only carry 3 yards

Exactly. My bucket on my T300 is a 1 yard bucket, but I can only get about 1/2 yard of concrete in it. Thats me going real slow and being careful not to slop any out. If the ground is rough, or has hills then it will be even less.

You should probably let someone who knows these answers do the job, you watch and then you'll know for next time.

going into a pond with anything with tires is taking a risk. you had better make sure the bottom is solid otherwise an expensive recovery bill is the result.
