    You have to be able to cover all of your expenses and still make a profit for yourself. I wouldn't be able to tell you what you should price it at because I haven't seen it nor do I know the details about the property.

    I would say that you would around $60/hr. Now I don't know your costs or anything but once you factor in the fuel, wear and tear on the equipment, wages for employees, and other business expenses you aren't left with much profit for you and the business when you are at $40-$50 but $60 is a better price I my opinion.
