    I just purchased a Kubota B20 with the intensoins of doing some finish grading and excavating as a part time business. How would you all suggest I get started doing that. What is a typical rate for operator and machine per hour?

    My father does this for a living. You need to know how much fuel you are using per hour plus maintanence and food. Are you supplying the rock and dirt? Are you renting dump trucks? and of course your time counts for something.
