    Hello.
    I hope This is the correct section For this question.
    I have an opportunity to do storm clean up for about 3 to 5 months with a average of 60 hours a week with my grapple truck and it dumps.
    1.this is funded through the government.
    2. The dump site is 15 to 30 miles away round-trip.
    3. He said go load up go dump and do the same thing all day.

    My Question is I have a Sterling Grapple truck that dumps It has the cat 10 engine in it

    I have never done this before but I am very interested what would you guys charge per hour Thank you for your time.

    150 an hour. If I was gonna rent my services out. I have different equipment but that would be mine regardless.

    EDIT: Are you the only person working with you? If more I would add $50 extra an hour per person.
     
    Treecare Thanks this.

    I have no idea where you are but in Ohio at least near me dumps get 600 to 900 per day.

    I would clearly shoot for 900.

    Cheap wrecker here in Arkansas is 175$ an hour. I'd probably start thinking in that area.

    I
    Siinman,
    Thank you for your response. It would be just me and I own my truck. No rental. I don't know if I will do it. I just worry about the wear and tear on my grape truck.
    I appreciate you sir.
     
    Siinman Thanks this.

    Mattflat362,
    Thank you for you response. I am here in California and I was thinking more like 2400 per day because it is storm cleanup, and I have To get up on the truck and run my grapple rain or shine Cold weather warm weather does not matter. And some of this Burned up logs from force fire really messy stuff definitely have to wear facemask
     
    Mattflat362 Thanks this.

    Mlc adventures,
    Thank you for your reply I was thinking more like 300 per hour.The reason is because I have to get up on top of my grapple truck may be 6 to 8 times a day and I’m loading burnt wood and logs here in California it is pretty messy so rain or shine I’m outside sitting on top of the truck smelling the burnt wood and that nasty exhaust off the diesel truck . What are your thoughts thank you
     
    Mattflat362 Thanks this.

    300 per hour of 2400 a day is pretty steep. If you can get it great but that's a good chunk of $$.

    I don't know California but I think 150 per hour seems pretty reasonable. Give or take
     
    Oxbow Thanks this.

    Getting up and down and smelling wood and diesel is part of running a grapple truck no?
