    Thts a pretty big machine for landscape work. Depends on the type of work. I charge anywhere from $85/hr to $150/hr with a 4hr minimum. Or i price the job bybthe day. To many variablse. Everybody will have a different number. What do you plan to pull this skid with?

    Ummmm no. You might want to rethink that. That truck will not stop a trailer pulling that skid. Plus its illegal by DOT regulations.

    What will this skid be used for? That will help you decide what size machine you will need in the first place. And you have to get a trailer to haul it around, and by the sound of it a truck aswell.
