    I recently bought a nice Case 660 Backhoe/trencher and I really want to know what are the going rates for a machine like this.
    Is hourly rate of $100-120/hr in the ballpark? I think a lot of work is being done by the foot, but that also varies with the width of cut, depth and soil conditions. Any ideas on 6" cut and 36" deep in clay?

    Thanks
