Earth Backfill Cost, Difficult
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Excavation unit cost for backfilling trenches or other excavation work using a backhoe or bucket loader under difficult conditions.
One cubic yard of soil or other fill.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 10 cubic yards of soil per hour of backhoe time, plus one unskilled laborer hour for every 25 cubic yards of fill work.
The cost will cover backfilling under more difficult conditions-- if the materials need to be hauled a longer distance, or if materials need to be maneuvered in awkward conditions (for example, close to buildings, around trees or under electrical wires). We have an additional backfill unit cost for easier conditions.
No suggestion. Enter an estimate of the volume of backfill required.
