Chances are that 250 will be overloaded on the rear axle hauling the 279. $600 per month for 4 years is a HUGE commitment of capital. Good luck and personally I wouldn't dump a ton of money on a machine that has the "potential" to make money. My first skid was an 1835 Case that helped build the colonies in America. It was cheap and worked fine for what I needed it for, you don't always need an expensive piece of equipment to do the job.

It's great that you are ambitious but it makes no sense to buy a big skid/ctl. Go get a ASV/Terex PT30, you can pull that with what you have and you can really make a nice niche for yourself.

I basically just work for the company. When I turn 18 I will own the company 100%.
The company would apply for the equipment loan and dad would co-sign not me.

Easier to read..... no?

What he is asking, are you insured? Honestly a business license means nothing if your not insured.

Also on another note, how is it legal for a 14 year old to operate a skid steer, it's not. Doesn't matter if your dad owns the company, you do something wrong while operating it, your father is held reliable for it. The fines that could come out of it are huge. If you think it's not illegal to do,then go read OSHA.

Not bashing on you but you need to slow down your thinking. Ambition is great, getting in over your head is not.

On another note, have you ever done any gradin work, and machine operating, any other job possibilities then this "one" job?

I was asking if you were incorporated.... you say the business is buying the machine, so you must work for a corporation?
