Got a neighbor that wants me to cut 35a of corn for silage for him. What is a fair price be my 8300, chopper w 3r head, fuel and my time, we would also bring 2 wagons over with tractors with 2 neighbors running them, what is this worth? His yard isnt set up to get trucks into the yard and pit area, so other custom cutters are kinda out. Not really wanting the work, but I do his hay and have bought some corn from him in the past for silage. Is $90-100 an hr enuff for the chopper, then just tractor hrs and fuel on wagons, and he pays other neighbors? Whats your take?
