Just looking to see what everybody else is charging per hour. Got a fertilized plant wanting me to pull their trailer and haul fertilize it trying to get an idea of what everything might be thank you

A few years ago I did a belly dump project, at the time the going rate was $105/ hour. Of course our largest cost which is fuel has doubled. You will use $40-$60 per hour in fuel.

I've always figured $75. A hour, but with fuel up to $6.00 a gal I'm raising it to $100.

If you're pulling their trailer, that will save you on some of the expence.

I agree with Michael. I'd want to be in the 120 ballpark. Pulling a truck in and out of fields is a little harder on them than trucks that never leave pavement, and getting your truck covered in a nice layer of urea dust adds expenses to deal with also. Good luck!

I pull a 3 axle lowboy and charge 150.00 per hour plus fuel surcharge. I wouldn't pull there trailer for less than 125.00 per hour plus a fuel surcharge.
