our stuff is used mainly for excavation work. so we adapt our equipment for smaller jobs if need be. we dont run anything that small. it would not even meet the most basic of our needs.
side note we dont really rent equipment. everything we need we have.
We do half commercial too, so not everything is little residential jobs.
Excavators not much use but i wouldnt bother renting anything smaller than a 3-4 ton machine, purchase nothing smaller than a 5 ton.
skidsteer or track loader 50-100hp, we have a 60hp deere 319d track and a 95hp 332D skid... both serve their purposes
