Cost Of Earthworks - Isaan

Recommended Posts

Buriram (HuaiRat) area 300 for a big truck load.

If you dig a pond they will do this for nothing but they will take the soil to sell

The secret is finding someone close by who is having a pond dug out. Local knowledge will always save you money.

We bought 250 trucks from a neighbour @ 170 Baht (we then took an additional 50 @ 160 Baht). Uncle used his tractor to levelthe soil and we paid him 1000 Baht for the day.

i have also paid 250 Baht for ligher soil for mixing top soil.

I have never paid more than 250 Baht per truck. Not sure the Thais understand exactly what goes on the trucks but we were told 7 m3. I think it was nearer to 5 m3.

Earlier this year paid 160 baht a truck,approx 2500 truckloads to level 17 rai.

Fill came from same piece of land,single axle trucks were used.

nothing is free... price break down if a load cost 200 Baht, Tractor get 20 Baht, Backhoe get 80 Baht, the rest goes to dumpster truck. If further away cost more but tractor and backhoe price stay the same...the rest goes to the transporting dumpster.

Just had 30 trucks of old rice paddy brought in. (they're digging a fish pond). Very nice black earth @400 Baht including the tractor. I ordered some a month ago but cancelled it after the first two trucks. It was just rock sand and river stones.

Regards.
