I'm getting a ton of work and want to invest in a mini skid. I'm looking for something with 30+ hp and diesel. The absolute most I can spend on a skid, the attachments, and a dump trailer is 20k. For attachments Im thinking a 4 in 1 bucket, a leveler, and an auger. My real question goes out to any owners. If business is good right now I believe I can hop on the opportunity of having a great reputation to snag more jobs. I'm trying to justify the massive expense with real world gains on the investment. Will buying a mini skid open new doors for me? Or will it just help me finish my jobs quicker? What are the actual labor hours saved by having this machine on the jobsite? How quickly does the machine pay itself off? Please leave the responses to actual owners.
