    What do most charge per hour to operate there skid steer on site. The job is simply moving piles all day and thats it no construction just moving piles from one portion of the property to another these are large piles the customer asked for my day rate. I have a 1991 Thomas skid steer that is paid off so granted i dont have payments to make every month what does everyone factor into the cost. I was figuring 60-70 an hour putting my 8 hour day rate at $480 - $560 any help would be appreciated.

    between 400.- and 350.- for a half days (4 hours work) and 600.- and 700.- for a full day (8 hours work). Travel time is my bill. I can do 2 half days in a full day work. I leave the shop to arive on job site at 7.30 am unload and start work at 8 am work to 12, load up move and un load back to work at 1-1.15 pm and finish by 5-5.30.

    Most of the work around here goes for $65 per hour. If your putting extreme wear on it I would charge more.
