Default sump pump installs

Ok plumbing gurus i need some advice!
I have a contract for 150 sump pump installs in a basement setting. We have to break the floor, carry out the debris, backfill with stone, re-cement, and roughly pipe out the wall 15 to 20 feet. Im not looking for a price estimate but a rough install time estimate. There will be 2 guys on the install.
Thank you in advance.

Are you placing drain tiles leading to the sump or, just stone around a sump?

We have to tie one footer drain in. So we will have to tunnel the footer for that.

I'd say you could do one a day avg. maybe take a little more then a day at first but by the time 2 guys reach 20 they should be out of there an hour early

For 150, I'd say at the minimum $1100 a pop. Material included

That sounds ridiculously low to me. I charge $400 just to swap out a sump. I've jack hammered a lot of basement floors here and have encountered some over pour where the concrete is over 12" thick.

I would do 5 @ $1800 each and renegotiate from there.

I think bulldozer already has a contract in place. He's looking for some feedback on best methods I believe

We already have a contract to do them. Im just trying to see if i bid them fair. There really not my forte but part of a bigger contract. Im hoping to get 2 a day. Is that out of the question?
