hey i do the same kind of stuff as you im 15 as well if i were you i would stay away from the 463 its a good little skid steer but it will tear up your yard and is prone to flipping i myself have gone on two wheels but a tree caught my fall. i have also rented the t190 very good it will still do a little harm to your yard but it isnt to big but isnt to small. oh and it is super strong, and has a really high reach if your gonna be loading a dump truck like we did.

Our company owns two 463's, these little machines do nowhere near the damage that a T190 will do to your lawn while turning. The T190 will load a truck very well, we do this about three days a week, but it will also do lots of damage in a hurry if you are inexperienced with a machine of its size. Get your feet wet with a 463 and you will pick up the basics quickly.

I love your passion, but doubt sunbelt will rent a 15 y/o a skid steer.

Back to the renting part... Sunbelt may work with you, but as mentioned above they don't normally do larger equipment without an account. They may require a 1million dollar insurance policy. I've heard Sunbelt doing that with skid steers/mini excavators rentals.

And to be redundant again, call your Utilities Locate ... and I don't care if your in the city, suburb, or out in the country. I've worked in enough yards and fields where wires were laid, or gas lines, etc...
