I just got my new Toro Dingo TX525W and I'm looking for advice on how to charge the customer when using the Dingo for various jobs. For example; if you had a large job to do that you used to do with hand tools, and it took you 10hrs to do it and you where getting $45 hr, you would charge $450. Now with the Dingo, that same job should only take about 3 hrs, so I would be charging $150 hr. That seems high to me and Im sure to the customer too, for only being there for 3 hrs. If I still charged $45 hr then I'm basically working to pay off the Dingo, with little or no $$$ for me! And with all the different attachments available, I could offer more services, but I would have to rent certain attachments at times, so do I also add in the rental price as well? Another example, post hole digging, do you charge by the number of post holes or by the hour, and what about the rental cost of the post hole digger? So what seems to be the average hourly rate for a CUL, and do you also charge an hourly rate for you the operator?
