I have been reading up on the posts and so glad I found this website. True eager business owners out there that have excellent advice. Since this is the case, I am deciding upon buying a few pieces of equipment for next year. We put a lot of lawns down and other landscaping work for our customers. (Grading, Stump removal, landscape design and rock gardens.) What we are deciding upon is a tractor with front end loader and backhoe that is capable of optional attachements with a lesser degree of work on the operator. (Such as a heavy burden of changing attachments and the sort.) Another question is if the Harley Power Rake is as good as it sounds and could fit on the equipment I am seeking? Research on the Bob-Cat skid steer loader has an option similar to the Harley Rake, but from you experts...what do you recommend? Thanks, "Garden of Weeden"
