Around here a quarter acre would get mowed down by the deer in no time.
How much fuel you burn an hour? $2.75/gal for diesel.
Understand your point but that’s why I didn’t do it myself. 100 hp tractor is way overkill for little stuff like I’m talking about, His little John Deere might be 25hp, 10 gallon tank you could run 15 hours or better Depending on Rpm
Went with him yesterday afternoon and got two small plots done on a farm close by, took around 5 hours or so but we had some cold drinks during and was in no hurry. They had already agreed-upon 250 and I think that was fair
Exactly you don't have to bring your pretty 1000 horse John deer and charge a man 75 dollars an hour somebody will be willing to do it at a fair price,
U don't think $75/hr is fair?
That's heavy equipment prices here in the sticks lol... although it's probably worth it
I didn't say isn't wasn't fair. But when you can find a man to do it for 40. Mr obvious says go with the 40 and hr guy
I would say $40 -$50 an hour would be fair for small tractor work.I asked around and that is a going rate.
Whoa....y'all are giving me ideas about what I'd like to do to pick up a little pocket money after I retire....I got all the toys and a little gooseneck trailer to haul them on.
Seeing the responses on here makes me think there might be a market for doing this type of work.
I offer this service. I run a forestry mulcher. So I go in, clear the woods or underbrush for plots trails etc. Offer food plot installs along side mulching. I bid all my work by the job and every job is so different be hard to explain it. Not a highly wanted service but some do.
I just seen this service on Ohio craigslist that a guy does is that way Sutton
I dont do till/seed plots often because its to expensive for the owner to make it worth my time generally. Out of towners is usually who want the whole process done. I stay really busy mulching though and about half my work is hunting farms.
What type mulcher you running? Buddy has a Fecon, did some work for us last year. That's a bad machine.
I agree, I just need the trailer. Tried to find someone to do this the past few years, no luck, so I bought everything you need to play.
I recently retired.
I run a Loftness. Mulchers changed the game for land management.
