Hello; I am interested in purchasing a skidsteer this winter for landscaping this season. I was wondering how easy it would be to make money now with it backfilling foundations for local construction companies. Would I charge by the hour and if so how much? Would I charge by the job and if so how do I calculate the amount? I assume it has something to do with the cost of the machine and how big the job is of course but I am wondering if there is a calculation that I can apply and what exactly an operators time is worth nowadays. Thanks.
