Operating Cost

Just curious to what some of your customers cost per hour of operation are? I understand it varies depending on vintage of fleet, environment, and operators. I have customers that run for under $2 per hour to a customer that runs $14 per hour! Both with newer model units, although two completely different environments. Let me know your experiences.

Total maintenance costs divided by run time.

What factors do you take into account for cost per hour costs- total yearly expenditures divided by run time? Fuel costs? operator costs?
