    I recently posted a new thread asking what you charge for a bobcat and operator an hour. i didnt get much response. I searched and all I found was snow removal prices for a bobcat. I now need to know what to pay an operator for the bobcat. skill level on a 1 to 5 scale he would be a 3. I just dont want to undercut myself

    The guy that I sub out work to gets $65/hr. But, he uses a $60,000, 80 hp., rubber track Cat. The guy is awesome and extremely quick with that machine. In the right situations, it is money very well spent, in my opinion.

    I used to get $30/hr., but that was a few years back.

    $65/hr, got to be good, and fix things if things go south usually, which they always do. If I provide the equipment, then 15-25.
