    Chris What are the going rates an hour for a 200 size excavator, a dozer the size of yours, and a 10 wheel dump truck?

    Around here the going rate is $135 a hour for a 20 ton hoe. $100-110 for a Dozer 20Klbs range and a quad runs about $70-75 a hour

    So what about a mini ex(kubota 161),a trackloader,(takeuchi 140). I have been charging $75 per load on my 750(not hourly) and I adjust on distance and number of loads,$60 to $75 per hr on my B 26 and about the same on my other 2 tractors(grand L,L4400 used for bushhoggong,turf). snow removal is a different animal. If I'm doing a day job i'm charging $750 to $1000 per day depending on variables.(number of guys type of equipment,distance).

    Time for a pond update.


    Its mostly done now. I almost had it finished then the owners wanted it deeper so I had to hog more dirt out of the shoreline and build the dam up higher.

    yeah the 140 broke down on a job and had to bring out the 210 to finish but then we took it to another pond job we are working on.
