Got a lead for a job that is a little too big to do with compact equipment. Wondering if I am in the right ballpark. A guy has an area 450' x 90' which is maybe 4' high for the first 90', within a foot or so through most of it, and then 4 - 5' low on the last 100' or so. Basically, I need to cut out about 1200- 1500 cu yards on the high side and push it 300 feet, and then level it all up. I would like to cut it out with a 20 ton excavator and push and spread with a small dozer, but as I will be renting whatever I use, using two machines would run up my cost a bit. A co-worker suggested doing the cutting and pushing with a small dozer. Will a D3 or D4 make this cut efficiently or am I gonna spend 3 days dozer time trying to save one day of excavator time? What price range should I be expecting on a job this size? I don't want to rip the customer off and I sure don't want to work for free.
