Dude, we do that in hours sometimes. Go for it. Start with a used unit OR check into a brand new with warrenty and special financing. Really, the hardest part will be finding the jobs. Good Luck.:)

If all you had was a shovel, you could make $1000 with about 35 man-hours. Add a machine and you'll spend less time getting to that mark. Of course now you have to pay for the tractor and the implements, gas, oil etc. See where I am going with this?
It just depends on how much time you want to spend and how much you want to invest in terms of equipment.
BUT...it can be done!
