    Ive been working on some new contracts for this season, and upgrading some older ones. I havent increased my prices in a several years but with fuel and cost of living what it is I feel its time.

    I dont price per hour since we all know, increased experience & better equipment increase productivity and ultimately cuts into hourly profits.

    I generaly price per push with depth adjustments, when possible. The initial depth structure is 2"-4" and this rate is based off an hourly rate of $125 for a 1ton or less truck. Additional depth catagories are increased percentagely.

    So I guess my question is, based on an initial depthe of 2"-4", is $125/hr still competatively priced for the Maryland area?

    We have some multi year contracts that were based on $125 an hour, but this years new contracts are based on $150 an hour or more. We charge per push also, only using the hourly rate as a base similar to the flat rates used for mechanics.
