    Sorry man but with all of that equipment you dont know how much an hour you should be charging? Around here (I guess!) loaders range from $75.00-$110.00 per hour and quads, might be around $30-$35.00 per hour.

    LOL My thoughts exactly. Take the original bid price, divide it by your average hours. minus your markup. You have YOUR original hourly rate :rolleyes:
