Rector Company designs and builds retaining walls for individual customers. On August 1, there were two jobs in process: Job 547 with a beginning balance of $9,300, and Job 548 with a beginning balance of $7,800. Rector applies overhead at the rate of $9 per direct labor hour. Direct labor wages average $15 per hour.
Data on August costs for all jobs are as follows:

6. Partway through the year, Rector bought a bulldozer to handle larger jobs. The bulldozer cost $38,000 and is needed for larger commercial jobs. Smaller residential jobs can still be done with the smaller bobcat tractor. How could Rector apply the bulldozer cost to only those jobs that need the larger equipment?
