We have a chance to bid on heavy equipment washing for a large excavating company. We’d clean everything in their gravel yard. Basically, what’s there when we come; stuff coming in and out from jobs all the time.

Pricing for heavy equipment like this? What’s an average price for a large bulldozer, front end loader, or track hoe? I’ve found info on trucks and trailers, but don’t know where to start on this type of work? Help!

@Trey Winslow?



When you do the @ and then their screen name, it sends them a message that they have been mentioned.

I did @Trey Winslow but it did not work because his handle here is TreyWinslow - all one word.

I mentioned Trey because he recently posted pictures of cleaning some rock drills so perhaps he could help with your question.
[MENTION=1670]Mulchtank[/MENTION] Did you get the notification of mention?

Yes I did. Thanks!

I have 2 accounts that are either on a construction site or at a yard with no access to water. If that is the case with you, you will need a large enough tank to tote the water around with you.

If you’re doing around $100/hr for contract fleet work you’re doing pretty well. We do a set of dump trucks and 12 rock drills that are done periodically. The trucks are done every 1-2 weeks and the drills are done about every month.

Charge more for the first initial cleaning of the equipment. Then if you get on a schedule with them you can give them a discount for having them done regularly.
