    At present, I usually only do box blade work on smaller jobs. I consider this more detailed and expensive work than bushhogging. What kind of rates do you guys charge for grading work?

    I have been charging $50/hour for several years. That seems to be the going rate around here for Bobcat/Utility tractor work. I use a Kubota L3010 and grade or bushhog to supplement the farm income. I am selective about any jobs and don't do anything complicated or too time-consuming.

    What about a minimum? I've been getting $85-$100 minimum for 1 hour. $50 per hour after that.

    Lowest price we do tractor work for is $45/hr with two hr. minimum. Our tractor has six foot blade and bushhog. Depending on the job we average around $50- $60/ hr with tractor.

    2 hour minimum. Most of my work is real close by so $100 minimum works well for me.
