    bulldozer hire price

    Was talking to a chap today on a site driving a bigish komastu dozer, with approx 12ft blade and decent wide tracks, I mentioned I have a days work levelling some soil out, 800 a day with driver and I put the diesel in he was asking
    Anyone know whether this is realistic

    Don't know the price of the actual hire price of the dozer but I know operators are expecting 16 hour on the books. take into account moving of the machine and actual hire??

    Transport is the killer on one days hire.

    I would rather have a 16t 360 machine for 2 days for the same money, and do a few more jobs while he was at it.

    Depends on size of dozer, but our D5 goes out in the region of 50 an hour with transport on top. A 360 will never do the cut, fill and levelling a dozer can achieve.

    Is the work it will do in a day worth 800 quid to you?
