###### Question details

A project requires transporting 13,000 cy of sand using 12-cy dump trucks. A front-end loader will load trucks at a rate of 95 cy/hr. The trucks will transport the sand 7 miles at an average haul speed of 30 mi/hr, return speed of 40 mi/hr, and dump time of 3 minutes. Assume a 50-min effective hour for all equipment. The total cost (ownership, operating, and operator) of the loader is $400 per hour, the total cost of the truck is $100 per hour. Calculate the total cost of the project and the unit cost.
