Your price sounds pretty good to me. Hard to tell how much you are hauling away. 3 or 4 pickup loads unless I am missing something. Someone else mentioned something about 30 yard of hauling so I'm not sure if I'm understanding correctly.

It would be well worth a half day rental for a billy goat vs cutting with hedge trimmers. It goes through the tall meadow grass real well. It also cuts the thicker stock bushes , shrubs etc but not at ground level. If you have the thicker stuff to cut, it will leave the punji stick effect

Yeah that's just a little over 2,000 sq ft. I would think your pretty close on the price just going by the pic. Maybe 750-800 but I doubt it's worth any more than that.

I suppose that is a good price. Personally, I wouldn't even mobilize for that. But it sounds like your equipment is much smaller. One of our tri-axles would make that in a day so for it to sit there it should make that. Of course I usually cut people a break when a truck sits all day. 800 would probably get 1 truck, 1 skid for a day, and 1 driver/operator. depending on a lot of factors. I try to stay at 1000/day if it is a day job. But truthfully I don't really like day jobs.

6 hours is a the same as a day too me so I bill accordingly.

Looks pretty simple and I would figure a days labor depending on crew size.
So figure expenses and profit and if your happy with 700.00 for a days work then I would go with it. All companies have different operating expenses so that will affect the price.
