Third Lesson: O&O Skid Steers

Unit costs are a great analytical tool.

Take your machine O&O costs per hour, apply that to how many hours it takes to move X amount of dirt, lay X amount of stone or gravel, what have you.

Then add whatever your costs are for materials in unit costs as well–yards of dirt/gravel, square feet of pavers, sod and so on. 

Then you have a unit cost which not only greatly simplifies bidding.

But you can also use this as a tool to analyze performance of crews, machines and even subcontractors.
