Hello Forum Members, I have been thinking about how to calculate my REAL costs of cutting any one particular yard. Obviously, I know the fuel costs for driving to and operating equipment at the site. But how do you guys calculate the real cost to operate your equipment? I have a 48" Toro ZTR and can obviously figure out about how much fuel I will burn operating the ZTR for a single minute, hour, day etc. I am struggling to find ways to calculate the costs of owning the machine, operating the machine (less gas), and on top of that providing and paying for an operator to drive that machine. I need some help trying to figure this out so that I can plan for the financial health of my business and its future endeavors. Any help given is appreciated. Thanks.
