    We have 2 Cat 966 C's, a Volvo 150D, Volvo 120E and a Bobcat T250 track skid-loader. Located in West Central MN, what should I charge to move snow/pile snow/ load snow ??

    Also how much does a guy charge per hour for dumptrucks hauling snow away from lots ??

    thank you.

    Might make a difference in your hourly rate based on whether you are the contract holder with the client, or you are working as a sub for the primary contractor.

    Whatever you negotiate with them.

    You will need to make a buck or so on it (on your end) if you sub it out.

    in your area, with the quantity of snow you get, it is hard to guess what the rate should be. I would think it'd be in the range of, Loader w/ 1 yard bucket 50-80/hr, loader w/ 3 yd bucket 100-140/hour. 6 yd Dumptruck 50-80 /hr, 22yd dump 70-110 hour. you may be on the low end given the higher quantities in your area.

    You need any subs? I will come out to Long Island for the winter for that rate. Have 4 machines with 4 1/2- 5 yard buckets. will even bring the skid and dump trucks if need be.
