    HI.. I'm trying to get a price per hour that a Backhoe with a pusher box would be charged to figure into a snow bid. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    So are you hiring a backhoe with pusher or do you have one you want to out to work? $250 an hour would be high around here. More like $150 an hour

    I can get 3 yard loaders for less than $150 an hour. A hoe isnt worth much more than $110 IMO

    I pay $150 an hour, I do not supply the pusher and it must be 12' or bigger
    Must be 4x4

    $125-$140 an hour is top dollar for a backhoe with a 14' box

    Well that puts my Market really low. $75.00 for a backhoe. The Municiple snow hauling contract just came up. They are offering $68.50/hr for a 10 wheel truck and you must have snow boards installed. They are full up and have 4 companies on stand by.
