The Custom Cost Evaluator for Construction Equipment is a comprehensive guide to ownership and operating costs for construction equipment manufactured within the past 20 years. It is specifically designed to assist the user in determining the required hourly ownership and operating allowances necessary to maintain solvency.  For each equipment listing, current industry average data is presented as a default with the opportunity for the user to incorporate site-specific actual costs into the rate calculation.

The analytic methods used to derive costs are accepted throughout the construction industry as a means to obtain guidelines for cost recovery. Contact is maintained with manufacturers, industry organizations, and individual contractors to ensure that these guidelines conform to current industry practice.

This information is designed to provide accurate and authoritative information in regard to the subject matter covered. While all efforts have been made to assure total accuracy, the variable nature of the information and informational sources precludes any warranties of specific accuracy in any specific instance.
