Soft spots? I used tell my friends (ok, still do) that unless your on a LA road, your in soft spot...
(Disclaimer: at least within 50 miles of coast).

Why not just use all your equip,met and buy the root grapple with what you would be paying the rental company for the rental. And pass that on to the customer. I would try to use your own equipment and rent for 2-3 days if you really need a t300 just for the big stuff or soft areas

I priced where i make the profit i want(even with the rentals) or i just use the T300 for few days to make it more manageable to run my skid/grapple and tractor. Then i make even more profit and can use the extra to buy a large root grapple for my tractor.
