    What would you charge per hour for a Tri-ax Dump truck hauling snow away for a municipality?

    In summer a triaxle gets 120 or more here. Winter being the off season, I figure they would drop to 90 or so. Just a guess.
    I know some outfits would rather not expose their trucks to the salt.

    I would also love to know who you are hauling for. Been hiring out trucks for a while and best you will usually get is $100

    Local guy with a Mack Superliner carrying a ridiculously large body. Not mine.
    Truck is a monster. That is what he will charge me to haul my material..Can't say what the average per hr rate is for anyone else..
    Probably should have just kept my mouth shut.

    $80-$120 is common. Alot of guys with nice trucks won't haul in the winter and the ones that will normally want the higher end of the pay. Others you can get on the low end or cheaper. Not sure where in MN you are or what muni. your looking to haul for but most have set prices and it's just a yes or no to you.
    If your looking for truck hours try some of the larger snow contractors around almost all hire out trucking.
