Earth Moving Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction unit cost for bulk earth moving, for cut and fill work, site grading, pond construction and other general excavation.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 25 cubic yards of soil moving per hour of bulldozer time (with operator). We also figure one hour of supervisor time per 100 cubic yards of earth moving.
No suggestion. You'll need to calculate this quantity based on a calculation of cut and fill volumes.
Source of Construction Pricing
A general "rule of thumb" price that seemed to work pretty well for very rough estimating of a variety of excavation projects.
This price is aimed at relatively small earthmoving projects, for residential or light commercial work. It figures work by a medium-sized bulldozer, and only includes the bulk earth moving (no finish grading work or cleanup).
