In the same boat.. I wanted to start something, bought a trailer, rented equipment till the trailer was paid for. Then moved on to saving money for a machine..
Decided on buying a skidsteer because it was the most versatile machine, imo. Now its paid for and I've bought a handful of attachments along the way and I am still a few grand shy of what I originally planned on spending on a machine. granted I didnt buy the biggest and best off the bat, I just bought what I thought would work for almost anything at a good price.
I am still not wide open, but I havent gone broke yet..
