im buyin a cat 16 ton ex, decked out for $150000 to begin a new work. farmers always need canals cleaned out and there is PLENTY of other work with all the new houses being built. if they want it done, ill do it. my question is, should my next piece of equipment be a 226 skid (will come in handy for hurricane cleanups next year) or a 3 ton cat mini ex? what will be more profitable? for price reasons, they'll both be decked out with a/c cab ect. it'll be about a $10000 price difference, w/ the skid cheaper.
