Contractor Processor?

Recommended Posts

Not to knock you but how do you ever make money at £220 a day with two operators? Fuel, oils, chains will take that £20 off. Then the cost of owning and maintaining the processor, owning, taxing, insuring and using the tow vehicle. Good luck if it works for you but must be slim pickings. Appreciate it's regional but near me in SE it'd be £350 a day.

Was thinking exactly the same! That'd be my labour charge only for 2 men or machine & 1 man

TBH I'm not bothered what anyone thinks of my rates.....unless of course you're a customer of mine, a lad who works for me or my accountant.

 

We charge about the same. No point in asking the earth and getting no work.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the replies!

 

We got sorted and Billy and Steve have just left after a lot of hard work today. Billy's Farmi WP36 handled everything we threw at it. Everybody got stuck in and we got through a great amount.
