    what does everyone get for a bobcat per hour?

    what about half and full days?

    Am I right in thinking that the half / full day is a better way to charge?

    what about minimums? thanks for the help!!!

    $75 an hour?

    Minimum of half day rate.

    I don't own one yet, but am working on getting one and formulating prices still so don't take my suggestion as the rule.

    What are you talking here? Just a machine rental or use charge, or does that include an operator? Are you looking for what to charge per hour for services? Need specifics. That will only apply to your market anyways as opposed to across the country.

    I was talking about an operator and a machine, I was just wondering what the going price is everywhere

    If you rent out any of your equipment, do you have to have insurance other than what you have for landscaping?

    Another question that varies soo much by are it not worth taking prices from here and applying them to your circumstances. Here bobcat work is so cheap, I don;t see how operator/owners make the payments. Alot of operators charge out $45-50/ hr on average with bucket. Can go up to $100+ depending on which cat you have and which attachment you'r using though.
