    Oh man, I'd jump all over that! We get $125/hour for our skid and $125/hour for the dump truck to take the snow away on our accounts. We don't own the dump truck but we only pay a local trucking company $60/hour. It's amazing how trucking rates fall in the winter when everyone is looking for work.:D

    A loader around here will go for about 105 to 130 a hour and if you want one for the day it is 350.00.
