Resolution

The reason for material not being available in hours is that we expect material usage to be in the cost of the number of units needed e.g. the cost of 500 gallons of paint.  For equipment, we expect the usage to be the amount of time needed to use the equipment e.g. 40 hours for a dump truck.
