Backhoe Trenching Cost
Construction ITEM DESCRIPTION
Construction estimating cost for a trench dug by backhoe to a depth of 3 feet.
Labor and Equipment Costs
We figure 24 feet of trenching per hour of backhoe time (with operator). We also throw in one laborer hour for every 6 feet of trench.
No suggestion. You'll need to estimate the length of trenching required.
Source of Construction Pricing
We calculated this using job costing data from several construction projects in a variety of soil conditions (some rocky, some with tree roots, some with existing underground utilities to avoid).
