    Hey guys, I'm visiting a friend in the pan-handle of West Virginia. He has a t300 track skid steer (bobcat) for hire. He mainly uses this along w/ an excavator for septic system work, but has been approached by some contractors for snow work. I think they're really trying to lowball him at $60/hr. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Thanks guys

    $60 an hour is FANTASTIC if you get your gas for FREE! Otherwise, pound sand.

    A similarly sized machine will get you around $75-100/hour primarily for stacking and moving snow piles. If you ran a pusher or plow you could probably see closer to $125/hour. Obviously rates are highly subjective to the area and market that you are in, these are only an example based on what is present in this area.

    we pay or skids 50-60 per hour and we provide the pusher for them.

    front loaders we pay 80-125 depending on the size of the loader and wether or not they have there own pushbox..
