By Midwest Book Review
2010 National Earthwork & Heavy Equipment Estimator is a practical guide intended to provide a current price estimates for any project that involves moving earth - from rock blasting and ripping to trench excavation, basement excavation, soil balancing, roadwork, topsoil and paving, cut and fill operations, and much more. The text concisely explains how to use the multitude of proffered tables; an accompanying CD-ROM for Windows, designed specifically to aid in estimation, rounds out this solid and useful resource. An absolute "must-have" for anyone in the construction industry, and also a handy guide for readers of all backgrounds considering an earthwork project who need a solid idea of how expensive the undertaking will be. Highly recommended.
