    How do you estimate labor time for spreading rock? (80 tons of #2 lime stone with skid steerer and some wheel barrel)

    Well it's the same amount whether you're using a $100 wheel barrow and a shovel, or a $250,000 swing loader.

    But 80 tons, I'm guessing that's ...

    160 thousand pounds, dude...
    And you don't know how to estimate that?

    I would probably recommend using the swing loader.
