    Depends who you ask. Some guys are even less than that. A Case 580 will usually be about &18.50 to what Cre said, $27.39. I know this one hot shot though with this ugly orange backhoe and he charges a lot more than that.

    Just had a coffee tonight with this guy. He bought a new Cat backhoe that big one they came out with. Not getting much work so he's brought his price down to $15.68 an hour.

    Thats some crazy rates, crazy low. It costs more than 20 hr just to run it.
    I get 150-175 hr for a 580.

    Our 580SM doesn't move for less than $300/float $95/hr.

    $27.39/hr! I'm hoping that's what the operator is paid.

    Can I have some snow moved and a side order of fries... I'm not going to tell you what they pay me for hand shovelling, you need to raise that rate, you'll blow a hose that cost you 5 hrs
