HintLightbulb.png Hint: One scenario missing is soil digging, which adds 1.5 gallon per hour cost of fuel to the overall operation.

  • Costs based on availability of on-site soil
  • 6 block per minute machine - 8 hour shift - 1 gallon per hour for CEB, 0.5 gallon per hour for tractor (25% duty cycle assuming nearby pile of soil that has already been dug), one gallon per hour for soil mixer, local clay soil, 10% cement stabilized
  • Total costs for 2880 block:
  1. 2.5 gal* 8=20 gal fuel = $50 at current gas prices
  2. Cement - $10 per bag for 100 block - 29 bags of cement - $290
  3. Labor - $25/hr for tractor operator, $15/hr for stacking block on pallets x2 - $440/day
  4. Water - 20 ml/block = 58 liters = 15 gallons at 2 cents - 30 cents in water
  5. Plastic wrap
  6. Pallets
