Tracked mini loader

Recommended Posts

What are you charging for your tracked mini loader with bucket / grapple / forks

I have done my sums on my machine and come to £70.00 per day plus fuel at cost and transport , I think this is about right the machine replaces at least one labourer and speeds up the job. However just got a call from client saying he thinks it is steep as he can get a 1.5 tonne digger for £200 a week. I have told him they are not the same machine and do different job . I’m not in a position to tell him to shove it anyone care to share there rates for the machine

Tell him to get a digger then.

 

It's your machine, you set the price, not the client.

 

(Basically I'm telling him to shove it).

Pity you can’t tell him to shove it.

whatever your day rate per man is, it’s worth that on top.

If I needed such a machine for a job and could get it for your price I'd bite your hand off and go looking for more work for it.

 

I'm no expert on hire prices but as a slight comparison I pay £80 a day for a 13hp pedestrian stumpy and that doesn't save much labour!

Are you self hiring it to him- or just what you want on top of your normal rate to have the machine there?

dont go any lower then £70 either way. He’s hiring a tracked loader not the digger so that’s up to him to figure which machine is right for the job.

dont try and compete too much with digger hire- it’s a race to the bottom as it is..

Isn't a mini digger £70 a day and about £200 a week.

If it's to save extra labour tell him the price for 3 men as a machine will move about the same if not more.

A tracked loader costing £20k hired out at the sum you propose would barely cover the depreciation let alone actual running costs.

I would have thought £150+ would be a more viable rate.

£70 a day complete bargain
