    Responding to my last posting titled "cost of operation", I am actually looking for just the actual cost to operate each piece of equipment. With depreciation, of course. Someone must know figures on this.

    For example: If an End loader costs $100,000.000 A figure must be out thier to figure cost of operation per year over lets say 10 years. I have purchasing pricing on all of this.

    So here is what I need:

    A depreciation schedule based upon years....

    Rough maintainance cost: oil, tires, filters, etc...

    Other associated costs.

    I can add my own figures on driver costs.....

    Since many companys charge for this equipment by the hour, they must know thier cost to operate per hour/mile etc....

    Anyone have any ideas on this????????

    I have seen these costs listed somewhere but d*mned if I know where. I would check with the equipment manufactures for an hourly operating cost. They usually know this.
