Here's the debate guys.. I currently have a 1500 pick-up, mower, leaf vac / trailer set up, and 2 other trailers. I have picked up on more landscaping jobs and my ideal dream would be to work for myself. I'm 18 and have a great work ethic. I'm always doing something sun-up to sundown. Shoudl i get a 2nd truck and set it up for all my landscaping tools and put a plow on it. This way i can get a 2nd trailer to some needed jobs. Not needed much yet but i can forsee it in the future. Also as i am on parents insurance for my truck still they won't allow anyone else to drive my truck so i have to leave the job site to do all the running. OR Do i invest in a compact tractor that i can use on landscaping jobs and get into the snow plowing. I currently plow for a guy with his equipment and right now he plows my contracts for me as i do not have the equipment. we could still work together after i get truck or tractor so the busisness will still be there. I shovel all my materials off by hand and wheelborrow them around. I have no dump truck or trailer either. What would you guys recommend?? John Deere and Kubota's are popular around here. What size engine and are there any glitches in each i need to know about. I would like a fairly hefty load capacity for the loader as if i need to start moving pallets of bricks as you well know they weigh alot. I could always drop 2 rows or even break them all down to half pallets. Thanks for your help guys!! and if this belongs somewhere else ill move it.
