Any of you guys do any custom hogging? If so, what's a good ball park figure to charge? Do you charge by the hour, the job, etc? I realize it will vary in different areas of the country. Also, what kind of tractor/hog do you use? Is there a market out htere as a part-time business, like to supplement my income after forced early retirement?
Thanks in advance.

It may depend on what you are hogging. some big differences in price here. I did it for a couple years, private and DNR Forestry trails. Brush up to 3 inch was 50 per hour. I did some at 50 and acre but that was overgrown fields. That is northern MN. Hope this helps. Amen to Insurance.

I was quoted a price of $50/hr by a local farmer who uses a 12 ft bush hog. That is the same rate he charges for most tractor work. This is for the Rochester, NY area.

in the $25-$30/hr range in east texas area. i sure would not even think about doing it without lots of liability insurance. one accident is all u need and someone else could end up owning every thing u have and then some. and that applies to commercial work or just part time. LOL.

Rates here in Downeast Maine run more in the $25-$35 range. I gave up doing it commercially, because there are too many folks doing it, and I couldn't make enough to cover my expenses for fuel, transport and liability insurance.

Considering how far a 'hog will throw a rock, I wouldn't even DREAM of mowing without insurance. One softball sized rock through a windshield, window, or, God Forbid, a kid, and you're well and truly screwed.

Look into a liability policy on you and the tractor before doing ANY work for other people.
It may save you all that you have in the world.
Here in VT, the going rate is $40-$50 per hour.
I would do it for others for a lot less, but I am not going to lose the house because of an accident.
