I am trying to find out how much to charge per hour on a 12,000# front end loader for moving snow. I currently run a Bobcat and know what to charge, but I have know idea what a current price on a front end loader would be. Thanks for any help on the subject
Just wondering what you charge for a Bobcat?
Loaders in my market could range from $95.- $250.per hour
Depends on what your market would allow you to charge.
I am sure you will get more advice.
I have seen rates for backhoe/loader in the $150 to $180 an hour in my area. These are NOT the big 2, 3 or 5 yard bucket articulated front end loaders. Just 1 to 1-1/2 yd
bucket 4wd Case and Cat backhoes.
I have also seen rates for tandem and triaxle dumps from $160 to $200 per hour.
Personally, These rates sound reasonable for my area.
Being a little guy, I sub out loader/removal work.
Plenty of subs to chose from in my area. For my small bobcat work, I pay $75/hr. For articulated loader w/ 3 yard bucket, I pay $45/hr. Then I add in my percentage of course, for the final bill to customers.
