I have a Cat 246, 2 spd, w/ Goodyear rubber tracks. I would like to know what hourly rate I could charge a local CONTRACTOR for machine and operator? Would you base on an 8 hour day? Travel Time? Do they expect to make money on YOU, or just break even and get their work done? I want to get the work, but don't want to work for "nothing". What would be a reasonable rate range in the "midwest"? I was thinking that $70.00/hr would be fair. What do you guys think? Thanks!
