Bulldozer Backfill Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction excavation unit cost for backfilling trenches or foundation walls using a bulldozer.
One cubic yard of soil or other fill.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 50 cubic yards of soil per hour of bulldozer time, plus one unskilled laborer hour for every 31 cubic yards of fill work.
The cost will cover backfilling from stockpiles relatively close to the backfill site. Add additional time if the materials need to be moved a longer distance, or if materials need to be maneuvered in awkward conditions (for example, close to buildings, trees or roads).
No suggestion. Enter an estimate of the volume of backfilling required.
Source of Construction Pricing
This pricing is based on estimates from our job cost data from Turtle Creek Construction. Use it as a "rule of thumb" price for average conditions, and replace it with firm subcontractor quotes if they are available.
