    I was at a local rental shop here over the weekend - I poured cement in a building and I needed a few extra heaters. I noticed on there wall $60 / hour is there shop fee. My Toro dealer chargers $42.50 / hour and the BOBCAt / Kubota dealer chargers $45.00 / hour.

    What are you guys seeing around your area and what are you guys charging for your services?

    Usually 45-60 is normal per hour. The Bobcat, Caterpillar, and some of the other mechanics are charging something like 80-90 per hour. Needless to say, we don't take anything there unless it is an emergency. They charged me $45.00 to pressure wash my Bobcat last time. Something I didn't expect to happen since it was there putting new drive chains on, but they did it any how.
