This past season was my first season doing complete landscaping and hardscaping. I did various jobs small and large and I have always rented equipment out. I mainly used a regular Bobcat Skidsteer. I rented one 10 different times this year but their were many jobs where i could of used one but just didnt want to go through the process of renting. I have been thinking things over and looking at income and rental costs vs. new costs and just can't seem to make up my mind on whether to get a skid steer next spring. I already have many jobs lined up for next year where a skid steer will be needed and I would like some input from people on this site as to what the think and past experiences with their equipment purchase. Any thoughts and comments will be greatly appreciated.
