Have a friend/neighbor who is a first year farmer and has minimal investment in machinery and has been hiring his hay baled and well i have my 7110 and loader with big bale fork and he has been picking how much to pay for using it. He has no on farm fuel so i furnish the fuel. The other day he stacked 75 big bales and loaded 21 bales and paid me $75. I thought it should be more but did not say anything. Then day for yesterday he used it and stacked 13 bales and i received $45. It is so hard to charge by the hour as the magnums don't have tenths on the hour meter. I feel i need a set rate and do not want any hard feelings. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? I feel it is worth $30 a hour with out fuel am i too high or 2 cheap. Ideas please
