    I was trying to put together a bid for a customer to spread 30 yards of topsoil and level. I am planning on getting the soil delivered and spreading with a cubuta (sp?). I hvent used one of these before and was wondering if anyone would have some sort of time estimate for this.

    Thank you. I appreciate your time.

    Maybe it's spelled kubuta. The small tractors.

    If he can't spell it I would sure hate to see him operate it!!!! Figure it will take you 8-10 hours

    Maybe charge a laybor rate and then add another $10, $20, $40 per hour to cover the rental cost.
